Eze Does It: More South of France

After a few nights in Provence, it was time for a change of scenery.

And the views up in Eze are majorly stunning. Nestled snugly in the landscape between Nice and Monaco, the ancient village sits upon a hilltop known as the “eagles nest” and overlooks the French Riviera. With Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat directly below, and miles and miles of Mediterranean horizon, this pretty hamlet is Eze on the eyes.

We checked in at the Chateau de la Chevre d’Or, which is perched perilously on the rim of the cliffside. All the guestrooms are nestled in and around the old town, cobbled paths winding up to the top of the village, craggy stone walls cascading with ambrosial blooms.

We were ushered to the terrace and swiftly served a long-stemmed welcome drink. Clinking glasses, we peered out over the stupendous Cote d’Azur vista.

After drinks, we slipped through the ivy gates to meander the gently sloping breeze-filled pathways.

It was such a cool and peaceful time of evening to roam the twisty passages. Eventually, we found our way back to the hotel and climbed the steep red stairs to our room.

The next morning, I hopped directly into my bikini before shuffling out onto the balcony where breakfast had been set up.

Then it was down to the pool to catch a bit of sun before lunch.

As we watched the last bit of morning fog burn off the top of the mountains around us, we knew it was going to be another glorious day in Eze.

    First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Kudos!

    Thanks so much for your kind words! I started blogging to keep in touch with my family and friends across the miles. So when writer’s block sometimes gets the better of me, I just imagine I’m cosied up on the sofa with a pal telling them about my weekend. Sometimes, a luxurious pair of fuzzy socks helps too 🙂
