A hilltop medieval village on the Côte d’Azur, Eze offers magnificent views of the Mediterranean Sea and a treasure trove of spectacular restaurants and beaches. With France’s property market currently offering unbelievable value, excellent investment opportunities are emerging in the ever-exclusive Eze.
Highly coveted, and recently growing in popularity, it is no wonder that celebrities such as Bono and Julian Lennon own property in and around the charming village of Eze.
All about Eze
In terms of where to buy, Eze is divided into three main areas overall: the village of Eze, the Bord de Mer and Saint Laurent d’Eze. The village itself offers plenty to do and is home to some of the best views along the Riviera coast. “There are some wonderful restaurants there too,” says Tim Swannie, Director of Home Hunts, “including the two-Michelin-starred Chèvre d’Or, which is one of the most famous restaurants on the Riviera, if not the world.”
The quaint part of Eze is found in Bord de Mer. Here you can find splendid hidden beaches, exquisite restaurants and excellent shopping, as well as a railway station that means you can travel all along the Riviera and to Italy by train. Bord de Mer is also where Bono’s waterfront property is located.
Saint Laurent d’Eze, a largely residential area found a little further east along the coast towards Monaco, contains some sensational hillside properties with breath-taking views of the Mediterranean Sea.
“While the whole stretch of coast between Nice and Monaco is wonderful, Eze is particularly nice and popular as it is so close to Monaco,” says Tim. “One of the featured properties currently on our website is located in Eze and has been selected due to the increasing demand for property in this area and for the great value that it offers buyers.”
