Èze, France: May 2014

One of the biggest perks of living on the Côte d’Azur was the proximity to breathtaking locations. Last year we found ourselves lucky enough to experience one of the worst winters in the area since the mid-1900’s (still a far cry from the savage winters I survived living in New England); so when the warm weather finally returned everyone was fiending for some sunshine and languid beach lounging with a bottle (okay, several) of rosè. However, Bae and I happen to be incredibly vain creatures so daily gym sessions could not be forgone! Although, amendments to our daily practices could be made and there were numerous occasions when we would get in the car and start driving to the country club when suddenly and impetuous decision to visit a seaside village would be made.

On one such occasion we found ourselves at the adorable village on a cliff called Èze. We spent the day exploring the gardens and stunning views of the riviera. Thankfully the area has tons of steep climbs so our workout clothes weren’t an entire embarrassment. We spent a few hours exploring and snacking at an adorable cafe near the gardens. The day wouldn’t have been complete without sneaking onto the grounds of the famed Chèvre d’Or Hotel (Relais & Châteaux can do no wrong) and romantically defiling a plant with our initials. A perfect mini-outing in the French Riviera.

And anyone wondering if we ever made it to the gym after: the answer is always yes!

      • Monaco is only a 30 minute drive from Nice, so I would absolutely recommend that. Also, a cute artist town called Saint-Paul de Vence which is in the opposite direction!

  5. Hey thanks for the like on my blog, I’m still new to this so I really appreciate it.

    Your blog is so cool, I love all the photos, there are some really great ones of Amsterdam. I went to Eze a couple of years ago in November and it was still hot enough to be sunbathing.
