Fountain Courtyard In Eze, France 3 BW
Eze is a beautiful medieval village high on top of a mountain in the French Riviera. It sits on a high cliff 1,401 feet above sea level, giving visitors amazing views down to the blue Mediterranean Sea below. Eze is quite a charming place to visit with narrow cobblestone alleys, art galleries, and an amazing cactus garden at the top of the mountain where weathered statues of slender ladies are on display throughout the garden. At every turn down an alley or path, the views are stunning and full of charm. The area around Eze was populated around 2000 BC, and was occupied by both the Romans and Moors. The House of Savoy built up the town in the late 1300's as a fortified stronghold because it was close to the city of Nice. Nice sits west of Eze, and Monaco sits east of Eze. You can read about our adventure in Europe in my husband's book, "Vagabonds in France", by Michael A. Barry. Come with us as we lose our home, put everything in storage, and navigate through Europe for a few months with no return date or home to come back to. Sail across the Atlantic, dodge pickpockets, climb mountains, descend into the Paris Metro, endure nasty weather and illness, witness the flood of the century, and meet some wonderful and not-so-wonderful people. Chuckle with us as we live among the French and try to learn their ways and language. Then make it back home to an empty house we'd never seen before. The book with its 75 illustrations is available in both paperback and Kindle on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NCUNSEK .
