VISUAL DIARY: EZE, FRANCE

Forget the main centres and the French Riviera is all about picturesque little hill towns with jaw dropping views. Take Eze for instance, a stone walled medieval village with steep cobblestone lanes, crepe stalls, and gorgeous chateaus. Ride the bus up to Eze, get lost in its quaint, narrow streets, eat snails at a local restaurant, visit the cathedral and spend your money on either a visit to the spectacular Le Jardin Exotique at the top of the hill or on tea at the magnificent Chateau de la Chevre D’or with its splendid sea views.
