  • An early 20th-century recreation of an ancient Greek villa built as a private residence, the place is truly impressive, especially the Peristyle and the Marble room. The garden, some recreated...

  • Entry fee was moderate and it is a very interesting place to visit if you like seeing luxurious mansions that have been turned into museums. Very well maintained 100 year old house built to mimic...

  • If you go to the French Riviera and only go to one museum go to this Greek Villa. The story of the making of this villa and making the furniture is incredible. Make sure to listen to the tape recording of the tour. It sounds like a Netflix movie. The architecture is spectacular as much as the furniture. The Villa is well kept up. A must see!!
  • A very authentic castle visit, perfect to kill a day while waiting for a restaurant/friends or even escaping from heat on hot summer days in Beaulieu-sur-Mar . The entrance fee is 11,50€. You can visit both interiors and exterior. This villa once was a home to a millionaire German banker/architect who was passionated about ancient Greek mythology/philosophy therefore inspired by Greek civilization then he added the modern version architecture, making the villa even more charming. This villa has been kept/renovated in it’s original condition. Pretty well done!
