Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild is a true jewel of the French Riviera.
Built in the Belle Époque, this palace was bequeathed by Baroness Beatrice de Rothschild to the Academy of Fine Arts, to open a museum in the villa and make her collection of furniture and art objects a total and lasting work. Thus, the porcelains of the Royal Manufactures of Sèvres rub shoulders with tapestries of the Goblins, and many other wonders. Outside, nine themed gardens with multiple essences offer an exceptional panorama of Beaulieu Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat and the Villefranche harbour on the Sea.
