Eze on a Private Tour for a Memorable Medieval Village Experience
Eze on a private tour is a great way to experience this tiny medieval-like village. Described as the Jewel of the South of France, Eze is a popular place to holiday for everyone including royalty, the famous and the rich.
This village is perched on a rocky hill and has often been referred to as the 'Eagle nest village' due to its position on the hill.
From the hill are the most spectacular views of the surrounding landscape and alluring sea below. It really is an idyllic place to visit or to see on a sightseeing tour.
As you step towards the village, you feel yourself gradually stepping back in time along the pedestrian only narrow cobblestone streets. The buildings look the exact same as they did when they were first built centuries ago.
Take a Lovely Sightseeing Tour of the Jardin Botanique D’Eze
When you can draw your eyes away from the lovely views there are plenty of places within or close by the village to see. Further above the village is the Jardin Botanique D’Eze which was established in the ruins of a medieval castle.
When you climb towards the village, its church with an orange hue stands out among the other buildings. As you walk through the narrow streets, you notice that many of the houses are no longer lived in but are quaint cafes, restaurants, galleries or shops.
