My visit echoes previous reviews for this stunning garden and villa. The different gardens created are all unique and add up to a magical experience. The musical fountain at the end is a highlight. The audio guide is very good and the rooms and their treasures are beautifully displayed. The villa was easy to reach by train from Menton and... More

Went to a wedding here earlier this month; one of the best venues I've been too. Greatest place for a wedding.

The Rothschild villa has been reviewed and all the praises are valid. For lunch we splurged at the Grand Hotel (100 E. plus) but it was worth it (I think ?). We did part of the hike around the coast and ended at Place David Niven, where there is the most beautiful beachside house with its own private dock. The... More

One of the most beautiful places I have been on the cote d'azur. The stroll inside the villa with the audioguide takes you back to the belle epoque. The place is filled with marvelous treasures. The gardens are also beautiful. We also enjoyed lunch and refreshing salad in the restaurant with its excellent service and staff.

I don't think there is a more picturesque view from any property. This villa is situated so that it has views of Villefranche harbor and Beaulieu sur Mer. The interior is interesting with audio guide learning about the Rothschild family but it's the gardens that are a delight. If you're in the Côte d'Azur this should be on your list.

If you are in the area, it is definitely worth a visit. I had been for a wedding a few years ago but had barely seen inside the house. The entrance includes a free audio guide and I found the history of the Rothschild family very interesting and the house and grounds are magnificient. There are also incredible views of... More

This is an out of the way treasure. We were on a tour to the Matisse and Chagall Museums in Nice and our guide took us here as well. It's a home turned into a museum with gorgeous gardens and sweeping views of the Mediterranean. Unfortunately, it was our last stop so we had to rush through the home. The... More

Excellent is the only way to describe this. Travelled by bus from Nice and were dropped off at the bottom of the short drive. Spectacular views from the drive and gardens. This is a wonderful way to spend a few hours - looking around the house and then the gardens. The audio tour is fine, but can be a bit... More

We visited this lovely luxury villa during our trip to Nice. We took the bus #81 from Place Garibaldi (Nice). Very nice bus trip with very good views. Bus stop ( Plage du passage ) is at the footstep of the villa. The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild overlooks the Bay of Villefranche and the Bay of Beaulieu with gorgeous views.... More

There is just so much to see and do on the French riviera, that visitors often overlook this magnificent villa and accompanying gardens. On a recent visit in August when most places were crowded and chock-a-block with traffic, we found a parking spot easily at the Villa Ephrussi. There was no waiting time for a tour. Perhaps it's best that... More
