Nearby Activities

There is more to see and do than you will have time: Visit Monaco, the world's oldest ruling monarchy (10 min), Cannes (40 min), St Tropez (1.5 hrs), St Paul de Vence (30 minutes) and many more beautiful villages to visit. The coastline passes through many beautiful towns and villages, as it winds around stunning cliffs and sweeping beaches. Lush vegetation spills down the hillside, with olive trees, Mediterranean pines, citrus trees and bougainvillea.
 
You also can travel by boat, bus or by train; regional trains connect the towns of the Côte d'Azur, from Cannes to Ventimiglia in Italy and of course Eze- Mer every 20 minutes (Don't miss the Friday market, just over the border in Italy, where the French go to buy Italian goods at excellent prices.) The French Riviera and Eze particularly, enjoy a Mediterranean-type climate, with exceptional sunshine more than 300 days a year and mild temperatures for most of the year. The weather is quite pleasant even into winter, when the tourists are gone.
