thegoodlifefrance.com features a wealth of illuminating articles about Francophile life by writers that really know their turf. This particular spotlight on Eze in the South of France is testimony to the fact that behind the glitz, celebrity sightings and tourist hordes, the Riviera remains a simply delightful place to live.
Properties for sale in Eze are undoubtedly luxurious but for all their glamour, feel no less like home. A diverse range of properties such as architect-designed, high-tech villas fashioned out of steel and glass mingle with well-established homes built in local stone. At Eze-bord-de-Mer a private pool is a typical fixture while up in the citrus-scented hills, comfortable homes steeped in that unique Cote d'azur light and full of provençal colour, are within walking distance of the local school.
Nice, with its airport and Monte Carlo, with - amongst other things - a large Carrefour supermarket are pretty much equidistant from Eze. In the town itself there is a bakery, an abundance of restaurants, places of worship and sports facilities.
Eze lies between Monte Carlo and Nice on the French Riviera, a French Riviera mountain top village whose slopes plunge into the Mediterranean Sea below and whose tip can be seen from miles around. A little bit of paradise in the South of France where an ancient village of winding roads and time stained ochre buildings, flowers hanging from every window and post, steep steps leading to charming little buildings and shops will delight and captivate you. Perched high up on rock 1,400 feet (429 metres) above sea level, Eze is a place of labyrinthine little streets of stone, where narrow passages lead to hidden squares, where the sound of cool fountains will relax you and where the deep pink bougainvillea clad villas and buildings will make you want to stay and drink in the ambience.
