Photographic stroll in one of the most beautiful places of the French Riviera in the gardens of the beautiful Villa Ephrussi in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, with an overview also in virtual tours.
Gardens and Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild
The gardens are located on the almost island of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in the Alpes Maritimes department, on the French Riviera, between Nice and Monaco. The garden sits at the entrance to the peninsula, surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea. You will overlook the harbor of Villefranche-sur-Mer to the west, nestled under Mont Boron which overlooks the city of Nice, just a few kilometers away. On the east side is the village of Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, the Gulf of Saint Hospice dominated by the hilltop village of Eze and its exotic garden, then the Italian Riviera, in the distance, await you.
Visit and discover the 9 different gardens, as well as the interior of the villa
The gardens have nine different spaces: French, Italian, Spanish, exotic, Florentine, lapidary (from Latin "stone"), Provençal, Japanese and the rose garden. Allow at least a good hour and a half to go around the gardens as the viewpoints near or far are worth taking your time. The interior of the villa can also be visited. A good idea is to have a drink and eat a small snack there. Guaranteed Dolce Vita atmosphere. You can also take more time and sit on a bench in the middle of the different gardens to read a good book or just enjoy the moment. The Côte d'Azur reaches here, in a certain way, its paroxysm, luxuriance of vegetation, contrast of colors, opulence of all kinds ... If luxury and glitter seduce you and make you dream: you just have to open the eyes to admire the villas of billionaires, yachts longer than each other on which land helicopters from Nice, Monaco or neighboring Corsica ... All practical information on the website of the villa timetables, prices and practical information here.
Avoid peak periods if possible. Spring and summer allow you to admire the most flowering plants, even if the size of the domain will allow lovers of beautiful vegetation to feast all year round.
An overview of the places in immersive and interactive virtual tours
The 360 ° spherical views will allow you to have a first glimpse of the places even if nothing replaces a “real” visit (smells, labyrinthine discovery of spaces, freshness in the shade of large trees, musical spectacle of waterfalls and fountains , visits to the villa from its many rooms and video projection on the history of Villa Ephrussi etc ...).
