Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / French Riviera - Cote d'Azur / St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat / Villa & Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild
Baroness Béatrice de Rothschild constructed Villa & Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild between 1905 and 1912. Each of the villa's nine lush gardens has a unique theme: Florentine, Spanish, French, exotic, a stone garden, Japanese, rose, Provençal, and a garden de Sèvres. Formed under the direction of landscape architect Achille Duchêne, the gardens form the shape of a ship, meant to be viewed from the terrace of the house. The shape was inspired by the architect's voyage on the liner Île de France. The original gardeners were dressed as sailors, wearing berets with red pom-poms.

een van de mooiste huizen aan de cote d Azur met prachtige tuinen en een geweldig uitzicht moet je gezien hebben more »One of the most beautiful houses on the Cote D Azur with beautiful gardens and great views you should have seen
Beautiful house in lovely gardens with amazing views. It's not the easiest place to find, but the lady working in the tourist office was very friendly and helpful. She gave us a free map and marked the way on the map. The entrance charge is I THINK 15 euros (double check that as I'm not 100% sure) and the restaurant is rather posh and pricey, but the service was friendly (we only had coffees). The house itself is lovely, with lovely views from all sides of the house. The gardens are beautiful, and there is a 'dancing fountain' which changes in time to classical music and is very impressive and entertaining. I'd highly recommend a visit.
Amazing place! Everything is very well kept and the tour is very interesting and detailed. The fountains and the gardens are simply breathtaking, a must see! The gift shop is crazy expensive and the restaurant could be cheaper too, especially considering you have to pay 14 Euros to even get in. All in all, amazing place! Went on a weekend in November and it was very empty and calm
