The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild was without a doubt the highlight of our recent trip to the south of France.
The villa was designed and built between 1905 and 1912 by Baroness Béatrice de Rothschild (1864–1934) who was a member of the Rothschild banking family, Béatrice was married to the banker Baron Maurice de Ephrussi.
The Baroness filled the mansion with antique furniture, Old Master paintings, sculptures, objets d’art, and an extensive collection of rare porcelain.
I’ll take you for a little tour of inside the villa first!
The villa is situated on the Cap Ferrat peninsula with outstanding views of the Mediterranean on either side but the most amazing thing about it are the gardens. The grounds are divided up into various gardens each one beautiful.
My favourite garden was the French Garden, it was beautifully laid out with it’s musical fountains, I could have sat there forever!
Such a wonderful place, how amazing would it have been to have lived there!!
