Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild

Castles & Country Houses, Gardens & Parks, Museums & Art Centres, Music
Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild is the incomparable landmark of elegance created by Baroness Béatrice de Rothschild. The Villa-Museum and gardens are open to the public with different cultural and private events, such as dinners, lectures and concerts.

In 1905 the Baroness Béatrice de Rothschild, wife of Maurice Ephrussi, acquired seven hectares of land on one of the Côte d'Azur's most magnificent sites.

The stunning elegant manor was designed to accommodate all the decorative items, from the 15th to the 19th century, collected by the Baroness. The park was divided up into stylised gardens: "Spanish", "Florentine", "lapidary", "Japanese", "exotic", "English" and "French".

Baroness de Rothschild bequeathed the Villa with its collections to the Académie des Beaux-Arts in 1934, which opened it to the public in 1937.
