  • We are looking forward to see an as original construction kept with all of its decoration and furniture (the latter particularly remarkable). But who didn't is not particularly versed in Greek antiquities, some explanation would be useful to share beyond the aesthetics of the whole historical truth. Finally, the exterior paint should be renovated. Access by car: impossible street parking leading to the villa.

  • This villa, which represents the Greek culture is a marvel at the level of the sea. Only downside: it closes at 16 h 45 while in the summer it could get crowded up to 19 hours. Vivi officials!

  • This villa is located close to the sea has been designed by a hellenist over 100 years ago. It is a vision fantasized of the Greece. The furniture collection is impressive, the murals are also but the place lacks a bit of color and life. The inner courtyard and the baths are, in my opinion, the finest pieces, or at least, those where you feel the most comfortable.

  • 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.
