In Eze village and on the Eze beach

Visiting in Eze village was on a to-do-list also this year, it is a nice place and also going there is a small trip itself.  This summer we have taken buses a lot instead of taking trains mostly because we discovered that they are nice (you see different places) and easy (our hotel is actually located near to many bus stops), and last but not least we bought a seven day pass for Lignes D’azur lines so local buses are ‘free’.

Number 82 took us direct to Eze village and we climbed in a hot weather to the most top where the view is magnificent.  Tuomas took a lot of photos when climbing up and on the top as well. It was real hot so the next stop was on the Eze beach. We took a bus number 83 to Eze railway station which is located near to the beach.  There were a lot of people on the beach enjoying the Sunday sun and warm water.

I rented a SUP board but this time I enjoyed even more swimming in the warm sea.  I also realized that Finland is actually very good place for SUP.  There are different kind of rivers, lakes and sea coasts with variety of landscapes and water birds.  You can really enjoy the SUP trip, not just concentrating on keeping standing on the SUP board going up and down on (monster) waves.

Visiting Eze (the village)

Visiting the medieval village Eze was in today’s program.  The village is very beautiful located in the top of a high mountain and to get there you have to drive on a serpentive road on scary cliffs.  Luckily we got a bus with a experienced driver. In the end, after climbing up by foot to the highest point on the mountain, we enjoyed a magnificent view including the beach we visited yesterday (SUP in Eze).

 

SUP in Eze (France)

Today we made a train trip to Monaco. It was really, really hot day (+35) so we just couldn’t walk around the city that long time.  We saw many fancy cars and beautiful houses and streets, drank some refreshments and then we decided to continue the journey to Eze, a small city located between Nice and Monaco.

In Eze we faced towards the sea and found a very nice and peaceful beach, with SUP rental service 🙂 (www.club-nautique-eze.fr) . It was hot so I was ready to jump to the sea and on SUP board.  The rental assistant was really nice and helpful giving instructions and helping when needed. Good service indeed!

I rent the SUP board for a half an hour.  It was a wise thing to do, in that time I did not burn myself in the hot sun.  I paddled back and forward in the bay, enjoying the different kind of waves (different comparing the ones in Finland).  Still I had a challenge to stand up on those waves.  My husband said “You are not stand-up-paddling but doing sit-down-one. I need to fix this!  Anyway the beach in Eze was perfect for SUP and the service today was excellent.
