Description:

Today discover the vision, passion, and beauty of two remarkable villas on the French Riviera. First depart along the Mediterranean coast via a sweeping road to Beaulieu sur Mer and the villa Kerylos. Meaning "sea swallow," the villa is an exact replica of one that stood upon the island of Delos in Greece in the 2nd century BC.

Nestled in Mediterranean surroundings, similar to the coasts of Greece, the villa stands out against an imposing cliff face. The villa was duplicated to the smallest detail of that in ancient times, including the use of only noble materials - stone, marble, ivory, and bronze. It is a striking image of refinement and beauty; even in Greece today there is not a museum that evokes the daily life of the ancient Hellenes so eloquently.

From the villa Kerylos depart to Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, a rugged promontory boasting many palatial estates and the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild. The villa houses the "Ile de France" museum - a priceless collection the Baroness Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild assembled throughout her life.

Inspired by the great Renaissance residences of Venice and Florence, the villa contains an exceptional collection of porcelains, furniture, carpets, tapestries, and canvases. After a guided visit through the rooms and exhibits displayed within the apartments of Madame de Ephrussi, you may stroll the French, Spanish, Florentine and Japanese gardens surrounding the villa. Following your exploration, return to Monaco along the Lower Corniche road.
