Property in Eze
Èze is a haven for beautiful villas and apartments in an idyllic setting. This is where owners enjoy picture-postcard-perfect sea views.
The medieval town of Èze Village is perched on a rock 427 meters above sea level. The summit is reached by ambling through Provencal boutiques, cute stone houses and bakeries, restaurants and art galleries. Terracotta roofs and wooden window shutters are common.
Buy here, and you’ll be a local within the hour, though it’s rare to find a house for sale in this commune. If you can find a little haven for sale, then the area is certainly popular with tourists, so seasonal rentals are still very possible, though owners cannot expect the same sort of returns they could achieve in Nice.
At the bottom of the hill, there is Èze-sur-Mer, still small in size, but gulfing its medieval neighbour. It sits between the gorgeous Cap Roux and Pointe de Cabuel, and the properties range from cute and cottagey to more modern and sophisticated.
The advantage to Èze-sur-Mer is that it is a lot closer to the sea and conveniences. Here you’ll find serene pebbled coves and beaches, al-fresco restaurants and a scattering of shops, bakeries and grocery stores. The area may not have the glitz and glamour of Monaco or St Tropez, but its historical charm and natural beauty are enough to win anyone over, and the beaches are one of the Riviera’s best kept secrets.
It is around Èze-sur-Mer that buyers can find plenty of stunning villas, over half with good grounds and swimming pools. Many have gorgeous views of both the sun-drenched rooftops of the village and the sea.
