Let me show you an incredible hike of Eze and the Alpes-Maritimes! I have an amazing circuit that offers three levels of perfect views from Eze-Sur-Mer to the plateau of Mont Bastide.

Located just northeast of Nice along the coast of southern France, Eze has a little bit of everything and boasts an incredible variety of plant and animal life. Following hiking trails that can take you up almost 600 meters, giving those willing to hike more than just a beach-side paradise.

The foothills along the coast have an amazing transition into spring and out of autumn, complete with blazing color changes and a relatively mild climate. Explore the natural habitat of over 150 mammal species and over 350 bird species as you hike along these epic trails.

You will have an amazing opportunity to trek through the last pines of a forest enduring from fires in 1986, and watch the land in its next phase of growth. Along the historic footpaths you can see the eclectic plants and flowers unique to this Mediterranean landscape, including mushrooms and wild berries.

From the summit plateau of Mont Bastide, you can appreciate the hike you just made by peering out at the captivating Mediterranean Sea and its coastline. While you are taking in the once-in-a-lifetime panoramas, you will also be able to indulge in the remains of a Neolithic occupation.

Depending on your hiking ability and your ambition, I can craft specific treks designed just for you to get the most out of your experience. I want to guide you on an unforgettable adventure through this utterly amazing region rising just above the coast.

About the guide

Nature is for me a fabulous field of investigation . Colors, scents, sounds are always present and reveal us so many sensations.
My hometown is Nice on the French Riviera and I explore my region from the Mediterranean shores to the highest peaks of the Mercantour National Park. In the summer time on foot, and in the winter with snowshoeing.

I am looking forward to guiding you in my region, sharing the vision of chamois, marmots and ibexes, on the tracks of wolves, and with a golden eagle in the sky.

Richard delivered exactly what I was hoping for. The choice of route suited me perfectly; he fitted in with my timelines which was important to me and the cherry on top was that he was a delight to walk with and chat to for 3 hours. If I was here a little longer, I’d do another one and definitely will when I come back. Thank you ☺️
