The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild is a resplendent estate overlooking Nice. Beautiful grounds and gardens styled with plants and landscapes from different climates and countries. We really enjoyed the afternoon here and could definitely have spent even more time wandering the grounds. Truthfully, I didn’t find too much else interesting about the life of Béatrice de Rothschild, for whom the lavish estate was designed. She had wealth, a penchant for porcelain, cute little settees for her lapdogs and, I’m guessing, good landscapers. Her decision to donate the estate upon her death opened the villa for public viewing, and it’s worth a visit if you find yourself in the area!
