Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is located right in the middle of Cap Ferrat, this villa inspired by the Venetian renaissance residences is the realized dream of Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild. In 1905, the art-lover decided to create a sumptuous palace to host her collection. Today, about 5000 works adorn the lounges, boudoirs and galleries of the residence. And Béatrice's dream continues in the park, where you can find nine gardens of different inspirations such as spanish, florentine, japanese, provençal. Villa Kérylos in Beaulieu is named after a legendary swallow, which appeared suddenly from the waves as a sign of good omen inspired by the noble residences of the island of Delos of the 2nd century BC, it is the work of a rich hellenist, Théodore Reinach, who actually lived this ancien dream between 1908 and 1928.

My daughter and I took this relaxing boat tour. The guide was really kind as we had to reschedule. Because of the terms, he was not obligated to refund our money or reschedule, so we were very appreciative of his patience with our schedule. Unfortunately, we got lost (my fault), so our tour was abbreviated. This is a nice ride if you interested in a quiet tour of this area or perhaps taking a dip with a friend. Although there really was not much to see, it was nice nonetheless.

A very comfortable and relaxing tour. Our guide was very welcoming and also knew a lot about the area and its history. We were late for our appointment, but was even offered a complimentary half-an-hour trip later the same day. While we couldn’t make it, we found that generous beyond any expectation. We got the sense that he really cared for his customers.

My fiancee and I had a great time on this short cruise. We had a calm ride with excellent views of beaulieu-sur-mer and our guide shared some awesome facts about the area and how he made the boat entirely solar-powered. He even let us drive the boat! Highly recommend

An excellent moment with a top guide who made us discover Nice, Villefranche sur Mer, Monaco with our hair in the wind. We were all delighted including the girls (13 years old) and our son (soon to be 7 years old). See you next year

Unforgettable experience, an exceptional captain with a very beautiful boat.
