The Medieval Village of EZE along the Côte d'Azur

It's a bright sunny September morning when we decide to drive the few Kilometres to the Medieval Village of Eze. Situated between Nice and Monaco it offers the visitor splendid panoramic views of the Mediterranean along with many shops and restaurants.
Arriving in the village we park our car and lingered a while basking in the already warm sunshine and taking pictures of the Mediterranean below which are dotted with its many Yachts, then we proceeded to walk up the familiar cobbled stone streets to see the many shops displaying their wares of soaps, spices, linens, jewellery, metal crafts, and fine art.
One such shop selling leather hand bags beckons to me to come in and I couldn't resist so in I walked and a few minutes later with my purchase in hand I happily continued to spend the rest of the morning shopping and wondering around up and down the many narrow streets exploring what the next corner had to offer. At noon we decided not to drive back down to Menton for lunch but instead to have it here on the terrace at the village Cafe.
Once again we spent a delightful time in one of our many favourite places in this region, a little 'touristy' yes but Eze is not to be missed when in the South of France.
