Čze is a commune in the Alpes-Maritimes department in southeastern France, not far from the city of Nice. The area surrounding Čze was first populated around 2000 BC as a commune situated near Mount Bastide. The area was subsequently occupied by not only the Greeks and Romans but also the Moors who held the area for approximately 80 years until they were driven out by William of Provence in 973. By 1388 Čze fell under the jurisdiction of the House of Savoy, who built up the town as a fortified stronghold. In the next few centuries French and Turkish troops seized the village under orders from Hayreddin Barbarossa in 1543, and Louis XIV destroyed the walls surrounding the city in 1706 in the war of the Spanish succession. Finally in April 1860, Eze was designated as part of France by unanimous decision by the people of Eze. Čze has been described as an `eagle`s nest` because of its location overlooking a high cliff 427 metres above sea level on the French Mediterranean. We visited the town on a day trip from Nice in the spring of 2016.
