Eze, France

Eze

December 22nd, 2013

Eze is one of my very favorite French villages. It lies just a few short kilometers outside of Nice and I have visited it on a variety of occasions. It was the first “village perché” (perched village) I ever found in France and it just totally blew me away with its small, narrow, winding, steep stone streets and pathways. Carole and I first visited Eze in the mid 1990s on one of our trips to MIDEM. We took the bus from Nice and spent an afternoon exploring the little town. Since then I’ve climbed up to it via bike many times over the years, both on my own and with friends. Perched on a steep cliff high above the Mediterranean, it’s one of the best examples of a small French village built at the top of a small peak for safety and security in the middle ages. I spent a day in June 2013 walking through the village and taking photographs, some of which are displayed here. [Click on any image to view a larger version and to cycle through the gallery.]
