Nestled at 429 metres above sea level between Nice and Monaco, the exotic garden of Eze offers the visitor a delightful and beautiful walk. Dominating the no less beautiful medieval village of Eze, the exotic garden offers incredible views of the Mediterranean Sea and the orange cameo roofs of the village. The climb to the garden alone is a pleasure. The crossing of the village and its small alleys immerses the visitor in an atmosphere full of charm and poetry.
The exotic garden of Eze is located at the foot of the ruins of the ancient Castellan Castle dating back to the 12th century. The garden gate crossed, the visitor discovers a set of exotic plants adapted to the drought and against the backdrop of the Mediterranean blue. Probably one of the most beautiful panoramas of the Riviera, a bird’s eye view of the sea and the peninsula of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. In good weather, the look can be as far as the Estérel mountains and the Gulf of Saint-Tropez.
Divided into 3 themes, the garden consists of an exotic, Mediterranean and subtropical part. On the south side, the exotic garden focuses on succulent plants and cacti native to South America or Africa. The north slope, facing the mountain, has a different atmosphere with Mediterranean-style plants in a shady and humid setting. A unique walk in an interlacing of stairs and walkways in the middle of green vegetation. Finally under the exotic garden, the subtropical garden offers the visitor a cool break thanks to a waterfall and sun loungers to contemplate the landscape.
An artistic journey composed of sculptures of women in earth and bronze punctuates the garden by mixing botany and poetry. At the top of the garden is the ruins of the castle and has an incredible 360 degree view of the mountain and sea. A superb setting for a romantic walk giving an impression of a walk suspended in the air. An unmissable stop on a stay on the French Riviera.
Lovers, to your luggage !
