Considered one of the jewels of the south of France, the small village of Eze is a very popular holiday destination for the rich and famous. With narrow cobblestone streets and quaint French architecture, this medieval village could not be any prettier. Being perched high on the top of a hill, the views of the surrounding hills and azure water below are also delightful. If visiting by car it is worth knowing that the village itself is entirely pedestrianised, so parking is only 

available in the car park below. Here you will also find the Eze tourist information office. It is suspected that there is very little active population in the old village, however down many of the streets you will discover little shops, restaurants or galleries catering to the tourism market. This beautiful resort is also home to one of our recommended local hotels, Chateau de la Chévre d’Or.


Established within the ruins of a medieval castle, the exotic gardens of Eze is located at the top of the village and is a very popular natural attraction. Although little remains of the castle today, the garden showcases a range of cacti, goddess statues, winding paths and several beautiful viewing points overlooking the village rooftops.


Suspended above the sea on the Moyenne Corniche lies the Laboratory Factory of Fragonard. This perfume, soap and cosmetics factory is equipped with modern laboratories and workshops perfect for discovering trade secrets through a guided tour, or picking up a gift or two. The factory is known for being one of the leading producers of perfume in France, and best of all, visits are free.

Chateau de la Chévre d'Or

Sat on the mountainside, this village style hotel offers luxurious accommodation and some of the most breathtaking views. Even the cheapest rooms have views over Èze's charming tile roofs, although the sea view rooms are worth the extra price. Boasting four restaurants, ranging from a semi-affordable grill to a grand dining room with panoramic views and a pair of Michelin stars, you are spoilt for choice.
