  • There we'd been about thirty years ago and long covavamo the desire to return. I also did so much but so much. For combination were exposed even all dresses of the time. the who added a note in addition to the visit. Unfortunately we didn't have time this time to book a guided tour. What I recommend to everyone. but we are delighted to notice all the details of that extraordinary dwelling of unsurpassed refinement. Already the place is the détour ... charming and unique. And the exhibition in the Museum of photographs of 1940 in Athens made by French soldiers is surprising and rather touching. How to put it? That is a part of the soul that makes you feel good. deep inside. Not to be missed!

  • What a great location. Surrounded on three sides by water. Effectively a large folly and beautifully executed. You should allow 1 hour to look round. There are two floors. It is packed with furniture. The hidden piano is cleverly disguised as it looks like so many of the other cabinets (see picture below).
  • A replica of a Greek villa kept to immaculate condition. Do not be fooled by the fact that it is only a replica as every piece of this villa is historically built accurately in accordance with Greek ruins, and Greek historical finds. The small paper guide that is given to you on entry is simple but excellent in bringing to life the history and stories behind the paintings and mosaics. Definitely worth visiting.
  • Beautiful villa in the heart of Beaulie-sur-Mer! Worth visit, especially on a sunny day. Amazing frescoes and mosaics. Don’t miss the garden and the antiques gallery.
  • A truly wonderful place. In the middle of the French riviera lies this beautiful house. Filled with various artistic artifacts, and very well designed, this is truly a rare glimpse into ancient Greek culture. Despite the pricy entrance fee, this is very much worth a visit!
  • Wonderful Villa! It seems to be like in ancient greece.
