Owner description: Discover this Cote d'Azur seaside Palazzo, luxurious reconstitution of an Ancient Greek Villa. At the edge of the sea, facing the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat peninsula, the Villa is a magic place that takes you back in time. Entirely furnished and decorated, the Villa's many rooms bear witness to the art of living and refinement of Ancient Greece. The Villa is also a place for wedding and receptions organization.

This was a great break from the coastal towns and beach, added great variety to our trip. We toured the house and it was completely furnished and decorated in the Ancient Greek style. It was nice to get that unexpected history lesson while enjoying he Mediterranean. There were also audio guides available which were a great help!

We were disappointed with the Villa , nothing interesting , for me it was a waste of time and nothing more, probably because we visited Villa Rotschild just before we visited the Villa Grecque.

The villa is one of the most unusual on the French Riviera - it sits just past the Beaulieu-sur-Mer marina on a small point of land that juts into the Mediterranean. The setting was fabulous with a magnificent view over Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and crystal clear water. The villa was built by a wealthy man who must have been obsessed with the ancient Greek culture - it took six years to construct and was completed in 1908. The villa is a reconstruction of a luxurious Greek palace on the Delos island dating about 2nd Century before Christ. It is completely furnished and decorated to illustrate the ancient Greek lifestyle. The detail in the wood furniture and floor mosaics was most impressive and even the ceilings were highly decorated with 3 dimensional wood and painted patterns. There was even a Galerie des Antiques that displayed life-size casts of the most famous Greco-Roman statues. The audio guide provided in the admission price was excellent. I really enjoyed this villa - it was fascinating!

You can visit this beautiful villa that sits on a peninsula over the mediterranean in combination with the villa de rothschild. Nice free comprehensive audio tour - extremely well maintained and picturesque. We really enjoyed it and the promenade for the beach of beauleu su mer is 5 minutes away to stroll and sit back to admire the views. Definitely recommended !

It's a small piece of heaven to see this house, an erudite German's collection of nearly exclusively Greek and Roman pieces. You can get a joint ticket for this as well as the Villa Ephrussi Rothschild, over on Cap Ferrat, which is also delightful.

The setting of this house, just above the water's edge is also fabulous
