Le Jardin d’Èze is also known as the Jardin Exotique d’Èze and it is located on the site of a medieval fortress that sits 429 meters above the Mediterranean Sea. The panoramic views from the garden offers one of the most spectacular sights in all of the French Riviera.
The south-facing side of the garden features numerous species of succulent plants and xerophytes from all the continents.
The north face, with its caves and cascade, shelters plants from the Mediterranean as well as plants from other humid regions.
Since the garden was built on the site of a medieval fortress the village surrounding the fortress ruins have become a place to stop and grab a bite to eat or a little bit of shopping.
