Owner description: It took Baroness Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild, one of the most original women on the French Riviera, seven years to build one of the most beautiful sites on the Côte d’Azur. An enlightened art enthusiast who travelled back and forth across France and Europe, Béatrice de Rothschild built up an incomparable and eclectic collection of masterpieces: priceless Sèvres and Vincennes porcelain, works by Fragonard, paintings by the masters (Boucher, Carpaccio, Tiepolo, etc.), Louis XVI furniture, and so on.

“Interesting beautiful and gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Must visit... I loved this as we scootered around the corner and came across this beautiful home. Charming, elegant and what freedom, choice and money can allow. 100 years in the gardens are probably lovelier than in the day being established and enjoyed years after design! How lucky are we! Really enjoyed the short film also and friendly welcoming staff. Musical fountains beautiful surprise too! Live to learn more.

“Visit Ephrusi de Rothschild Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Very nice gardens with dancing fountains and music. Plan on spending about an hour or so. Nice views of the bay. The house is elegant and and you are provided with a free listening guide. There sre several different theme gardens. The view from the terrace is very beautiful

“Truly not to be missed if you like gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Of course the Villa is worth it...is beautiful and very grand.....but the best part are the gardens (indeed if you like gardens). The variety of plants, how they are displayed and how they take care of them is admirable. We spend almost 3 hours walking around and admiring the different garden settings. We enjoyed so much that we decided to take a visit at the villa Kerylos as well (ask for the combined ticket, is cheaper and is definitely worth it :-)

“Great start to a perfect day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Take the #81 bus from Nice Le Porte to Passable bus stop. Beautiful short ride. The villa is spectacular and beautifully presented with a great audio tour. Buy the combination ticket and go to the Kyrelos villa at the end of the day.

Walk down to St. Jean for lunch on the harbor. After lunch follow the road following the water and go down the stairs at the beach. Walk the trail around the point ... you can exit at the park or continue all the way out around the lighthouse, but you will be on the wrong side of the Cap for Kyrelos if you do.

We walked along the water from the park to Kyrelos in about a half hour. This villa is also worth your time to visit. The #81 bus stops on the right as you exit the Kyrelos driveway. (Eiffel's house is on the same driveway.)

A great day if you like to walk.

“Loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We used the bus service #81 from Nice and got there in about 30 minutes, got off at Passable and walked to the villa in about 5 minutes. The villa is extremely beautiful located on a very beautiful hill and surrounded by a very beautiful garden, which reminded a bit me more or less a botanic garden. Plenty of places to hide from the crowd, plenty of beautiful silhouettes and landscapes to take excellent photos. Great getaway from Nice - highly recommended!

The only minus is that gardens are not easily walkable with strollers.
