(This is the last pre-programmed post from my trip to southern France. Normally I should be back to normal blogging on Friday.)
Eze is one of the most famous villages on the French Riviera, Cote d’Azur, situated between Monaco and Nice. I hope that despite the lack of sun on my photos, you will appreciate why. This medieval looking village has probably been inhabited since thousands of years.
The wide views over the Mediterranean and the coast is of course one of its major trump-cards (epecially in better weather).
The village is very fashionably restored, has some excellent (expensive) hotels, Michelin star (macaron) rated restaurants, shops and a botanic garden on the very top of the hill.
As a final conclusion of our wonderfully by Jilly guided tours we decided for a nice lunch at one of the restaurants, starting with some champagne in Lalique glasses. The Swedish flag is probably due to the fact that the building was the home of a Swedish prince, the brother of former King Gustav VI Adolf, before it was transformed into a hotel and restaurant in the 50’s.
Fragonard has some cosmetic production on the slope of the hill, including a museum and a shop – of course.
