  • Villa Kerilos was built in the early 20th century by Theodore Reinach, a great connoisseur and lover of ancient Greece. He copied the plan of one of the ancient villas, but perfected the zdante with the technology of the early 20th century. The chic floor mosaics are mostly copies, but present and original with rooster, chicken and chickens that symbolizes the family. Many copies of famous statues, Venus of Milos, Diana, Discoball and so on. You don't have to go around and watch the originals, all in one place)) The rooms are full...

  • Under rather sober exteriors, this Greek-style villa is surprising for its interior décor. All explanations are provided by audio guide.

  • As an architect I enjoyed Kerylos. The audio guide is good, perhaps a bit too detailed, but worth getting. I find the synthesis of Greek architecture with modern conveniences fascinating.
  • We frequently holiday on Cap Ferrat but had missed this place tucked away. Worth a couple of hours. Some nice eateries in nearby Beaulieu too.
