Area InfoVillas for rent in La Turbie
Driving up the Moyenne Corniche, the coastal road which runs between Nice and Menton, towards the hilltop village of Eze, you start to understand why the French call this coastal department the Alpes-Maritimes. The views over St Jean Cap Ferrat and the sea are simply amazing. Sitting in one of Eze’s many panoramic restaurants on the village periphery, you feel part of a geographical phenomenon which brings together the mighty mountains of the Alps and the azure waters of the Mediterranean. It is awe-inspiring scenery. Perched on rock 1,400 feet above sea level, Eze village centres on the ruins of a 12th-century castle – a testament to centuries of occupation, from Romans and Moors to the House of Savoy. Wandering through its labyrinthine streets, admiring the the vast, bougainvillea-wrapped villas that lead down the hillside to the Mediterranean, you realise why Eze Village, and its seaside cousin Eze Bord de Mer, continue to attract the rich and famous as well as holiday makers from around of the world.
