Exploring The Beautiful Medieval Village of Eze, France

Eze, France

The French Riviera is blessed with numerous medieval villages but Eze is at the top of my list to go back to on my recent trip with The Greek Mister. I fell deeply in love with it the first time I was there and I wanted my husband to experience the same.

Eze, France

Eze is a mere 25-minute drive from Nice, I went there the first time by joining a group tour – constrained in time, I was unable to enjoy it as much as I would’ve liked. Having said that, I enjoyed it better when we visited it on our own with all the time in the world.

Eze is perched on a hilltop, you can see its imposing glory from afar. The location of the village gives it a great vantage point of the lush vegetation surrounding it and the Mediterranean sea.

It is a typical Provencal medieval village with so much charm and character. This stone city can only be explored on foot and the labyrinth of of its narrow streets which gives you a beautiful scenery in every turn is a delight to walk around in.

The name Eze was derived from the ancient Egyptian goddess, Isis – Ancient Phoenicians who colonized this area gave this name. Quite a fitting name as Isis means “woman of the throne”, she is a splendid queen atop of this magnificent hill.

As of 2014, the population of Eze is around 3,000 inhabitants which is quite hard to believe considering the size of it. I can’t help but wonder what life would’ve been like living in this perfect little place? Magical, I guess.

If Disney movies come to mind as you walk through this enchanting village, there’s a reason behind that. The village has attracted many famous people including Disney himself who was believed to do some sketches during his stay here.

It is one of the must-see stops in your village-hopping while in Nice, it’s something that you won’t be able to see anywhere else. It’s a picture-perfect place with a million-dollar view, don’t skip it.

Pin it for later:

    J’adore Eze. One of my favourite places in the world and my most memorable lunch ever was at Chåteau de la Chèvred’Or. Swoon.
