Description

Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat: Right in the middle of Cap Ferrat, this villa inspired by the Venetian Renaissance residences is the realized dream of Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild. In 1905, the art-lover decided to create a sumptuous palace to host her collection. Today, about 5000 works adorn the lounges, boudoirs and galleries of the residence. A real museum that takes you through different artistic movements, from Antiquity and Impressionism, to Chinese ornaments and the 18th century, the baroness' favourite era. Marie-Antoinette's twist table hints at the collector's admiration for the queen. And Béatrice's dream continues in the park, where you can find nine gardens of different inspirations: French, Japanese, Stonegarden, rosegarden, etc..

Villa Kérylos in Beaulieu: It is named after a legendary swallow, which appeared suddenly from the waves as a sign of good omen. Like the bird, this immaculate villa seems to spring out from the sea, at the headland of a peninsula. Inspired by the noble residences of the island of Delos of the 2nd century BC, it is the work of a rich Hellenist, Théodore Reinach, who actually lived this ancien dream between 1908 and 1928. Once you enter the hall, where the inscription "Xaipe" welcomes you in old Greek, the immersion is complete. The peristyle and marble columns, the thermal baths, the library and its lecterns on which you read standing, the dining room where you dine lying down, the castings ...Even the plants of the garden, lined by the sea, are examples of the Greek flora. A quite unique reconstruction, in an idyllic setting !

Villefranche-sur-Mer: Located between Nice and Monaco, Villefranche-sur-Mer enjoys a magnificent setting. Its harbour is often regarded as one of the most beautiful in the world. In 1543, the Duke of Savoy ordered the fortification of the site to protect it from Franco-Turkish occupation. At the beginning of the 20th century, the town became just like Nice, a holiday resort for English and Russian aristocrats. It was also very popular among American and French artists. Cocteau was to drown his sorrows in a bar for sailors and in the opium den of a small harbour hotel.
