  • Very high, with beautiful view of the sea. The varied and original vegetation. Very nice family outing.

  • Walking through the village, you will reach this garden. Pay input and an obligatory stop. You can see the coast and the old town. There is space to contemplate the nature and relax. Access is good, but perhaps not suitable for people with mobility difficulties.

  • The garden is a definite change of pace from the typical Riviera landscape. Although it has a small "Mediterranean" area with a waterfall, the focus is on succulents. The walk up the hill is easy and ...  more »

  • This place is fantastic for the views and local cuisine. Its a bit of a trek but well worth the visit if you either like scenery or are a photographer of the same.
  • One of the most beautiful gardens and views I've ever walked through. Very well done cactus gardens with clear descriptions in English (and French). Would not want to do it in the summary, but absolutely beautiful in the winter.
  • Such a wonderful view!!! Be sure to visit once close by! was only 20 mins by bus from Nice.
  • Amazing view and beautiful sunset from the garden at the top of the chateau. Eze is well worth a stop/stay and a climb to the top of the chateau is definitely worth the effort. Note that a lot of the shops and even the accommodation shuts over November - December. We came in mid November and half of the shops were closed on the walk up to the garden but still enough to be interesting. And the garden is still open.
  • What can I say - the garden and views from here are AMAZING! Well worth the trip. The history is also incredible - I still wonder why someone would travel by foot all the way up here to attack the inhabitants. I suppose it is a great vantage point, but the effort.....luckily we had a small tour bus and did no attacking (except with our credit cards - there are some very unique shops here that you will enjoy in addition to the views).
