Historic Site Specialty Museum
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.

  • Fantastic ! The Villa is marvelous and the many different gardens (around 9 of them) are beautifully kept. I highly recommend the audio guide, it's included in the admission price and gives not only information about the Villa and furnishings, but also a history lesson about the Rothschild family, Beatrice, and her husband. There is a view of the Mediterranean from nearly every place in the Villa and gardens. The tea room is beautiful, but pricey. Get there early if you're driving and want a close parking space. There aren't very many spaces at the entrance and parking on the street in the surrounding area is difficult. Taking a bus is the better option.
  • One of the most beautiful places in the world . The views are breath taking, the gardens are well kept , interesting and exotic and when the water fountains start dancing to Vivaldi's Four Seasons .You become in seventh heaven. This is a healing place. The house is so beautiful with video explaining the history. There is also a very tasty restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating.delicious cakes. If you are in South if France you must not miss this superb place !!! It is cleansing and awe inspiring.
