The Domaine du Mont Leuze is owned by the now Mayor of Eze, a well to do businessman, and is situated in 13 hectares of land in a national park area. The domain is comprised of 20 villas ranging from 1 to 5 bedrooms in size accommodating a total of approximately 180 guests, 2 swimming pools, a main building referred to as the Chateau with 2 interior event spaces (one upstairs and one down stairs) as well as 3 terraces and luscious gardens providing ample spaces suitable for cocktail & canapé receptions, wedding ceremonies, seated dinners and dance parties. The venue is well adapted to large groups with parking for up approximately 200 to 250 cars. The Domaine du Mont Leuze also has a helipad for those who wish to arrive in style.

A marquee fits comfortably on the main terrace which, out of season, would provide a perfect solution to stay warm and protected against the elements. The Terrazzita is a secondary terrace which is often used for the pre-diner drink at a wedding reception before a seated dinner on the Toit du Monde terrace and has a capacity of 100 people standing or 50 people seated. The Vista terrace, a smaller terrace with a capacity of 80 people standing, is hidden slightly from view amongst the trees and is an ideal place for a wedding ceremony underneath a pergola with chiffon draping. The area around the main swimming pool and the beautiful gardens with romantic fountain both can fit 100 people comfortably standing and are ideal for pre-dinner drinks.
