ACTIVITIES from CHAMPAGNE to MONACO
Here more than anywhere, the sun shines on the silver-blue, sparkling Mediterranean. Here more than anywhere, the palaces are splendid and the hill-top villages superb. Here more than anywhere, there is a festive atmosphere and a buzzing nightlife.
It was during the 19C that this part of the south of France was put on the map with the arrival of wealthy British, Russian and even French visitors who came to “winter” on the Riviera. These visits became a habit and gradually the towns and fishing villages in the area adapted to the new inhabitants. Soon, towns such as Cannes, Nice, Menton and Monaco were home to magnificent villas, flamboyant casinos, and splendid botanical gardens – and the idea of the French Riviera was born.
The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, also known as the Villa Île-de- France, is one of the most beautiful Renaissance-style palaces on the French Riviera, built on a hilltop on the Cap Ferrat peninsula between 1905 and 1912 in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat by Baroness Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild (1864-1934).
Beatrice de Rothschild was born from the union of Baron Alphonse de Rothschild with Leonora von Rothschild (1837-1911) from the Rothschild branch known as “of London“. At the age of 19, she married the French banker Maurice Ephrussi on June 5, 1883. The couple was passionate about architecture, nature and art and collected sumptuous homes and rare objects. They separated in 1904, the baroness reproaching her husband for his gambling addiction.
Like her father Alphonse de Rothschild, regent of the Bank of France,or her uncle Alfred de Rothschild, curator of the Wallace collection in London, Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild collects works of art and homes.
The museum gives a particularly vivid idea of what was the residence of a great art lover of the Belle Époque who showed a particular attraction for the eighteenth century.
One of France’s most beautiful harbour towns, overlooking crystalline waters framed by Provençal greenery, Villefranche-sur-Mer is located not far from Nice.

Treat yourself to a delightful day out exploring the old town’s winding streets, where the orange-tinted façades are reminiscent of the ever-present sun that shines on Villefranchois territory. The warm colours of the houses contrast with the pale shades of the louvred shutters, which are often half-closed, allowing a glimpse of the inhabitants’ peaceful lives
Occupying an konic location in Nice, above the sea on the famous pillar of rock and the base of the diving boards themselves, the restaurant welcomes you in its’ most unusual setting, steeped in Mystery.
