Eze is situated on top of a small cliff overlooking the sea (about 430 meters). Therefore, if you climb to the highest point of the village, where the medieval Church of the Holy Cross (Chapelle de la Sainte Croix), it opens a unique view of the Mediterranean Sea, framed by the magnificent sandy beach and lush green, one-story luxury villas.

The first historical mention of Eze are XX-XXI centuries. BC - during the excavations carried out by French archaeologists in the early nineteenth century, the remains of prehistoric human activity have been found.
