It is much more spacious and the view is stunning. We woke up to the sunrise over the sea. To have the sun on your face in late December was a real treat. The owners are trés genteel! Really helpful and kind. I will definitely try to stay there again in the future.

The property is lovely and Eze Village is just one of the most stunning places. The apartment was well equipped and we enjoyed breakfasts on the balcony. Great to have parking and the owner is so lovely and helpful. Would stay here again. The property is up a very steep hill so a car is required really unless you like a hike and a automatic could be beneficial but not essential. Jus be prepared for some steep winding roads! Overall lovely rental property in a lovely location.

A lovely escape from the hussle and bustle of the Riviera with the coast still within reaching distance for exploring and sightseeing. A well equiped house in a lovely mountain setting with a sunny garden and pool for relaxing. Would return in a heartbeat.
