It took Baroness Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild, one of the most original women on the French Riviera, seven years to build one of the most beautiful sites on the Côte d’Azur. An enlightened art enthusiast who travelled back and forth across France and Europe, Béatrice de Rothschild built up an incomparable and eclectic collection of masterpieces: priceless Sèvres and Vincennes porcelain, works by Fragonard, paintings by the masters (Boucher, Carpaccio, Tiepolo, etc.), Louis XVI furniture, and so on.

The villa and gardens are absolutely worth a visit - amazing! Lunch was also very good - and pretty good value. The waiter who served us (Arthur) was excellent.

We visited the villa on a day trip from Nice. Interesting gardens and water features including musical fountains . Interactive audio guides included in the entry price. Nice tea room with terrace but quite expensive. Helpful staff.

This former villa of a member of the Rothschild family is like a living museum. Hard to believe someone lived here. The owner was a woman ahead of her time. Definitely get the audio guide that is included in the price of admission. The gardens...More

Well worth the walk to glimpse a way of life known to very few. Both the villa and the gardens are fascinating and the fountain display is fun.

This villa is no longer owned by the wealthy, but was donated to a French caretaker organisation and it shows signs of wear and tear. That said, it sits on a fabulous spot, has superb gardens which are a joy to explore for young and...More

Don't miss the gardens and views from this house up on the hill. It's a must visit in st jean cap ferrat. I'd recommend visiting on a clear day to take advantage of the views.
