Eze village

That's the name given to the old village, in opposition to Eze Bord-de-mer.It is located on the Moyenne Corniche, on a rocky peak. That's the most famous of all the perched villages of the Riviera. The location is really magnificent and the village pircturesque. But Eze is overcrowded with tourits in summer. You'll see that eveything is made to "welcome" them. Souvenir shops one after the other in the streets, selling anything. That's a chump bait in our opinion. You might even find real local products there, but we can't garantee it.

Something really frustrating in Eze is that nowhere, from the streets, you can see the Sea. You have to enter a house to be able to enjoy the sightseeing, meaning a shop or a restaurant. Other solution, climb to the castle ruins, on the top of the village. But you will have to pay to enter them and there is no point apart from the view. It isn't worth the money. We advise you, if you go to Eze, to go a little further to the Col d'Eze (Eze pass on the High Corniche.) From there you'll have an even more beautiful panorama with the village in the foreground.

If you can afford them, Eze village has several high quality hotels. You can choose and book your hotel in Eze right here. Let's mention 2 hotels which have great views on the Sea and, more importantly, Michelin starred restaurants : La Chèvre d'Or** et le Château Eza*.

To go from Eze Bord-de-Mer to Eze-Village by car is not easy. There is no direct road. You have to leave Eze Bord de Mer eastbound and after the tunnel and a large right hand bend, a road starts backwards on your left and leads to the Moyenne Corniche.
