Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild

Saved the best for last! Well I still think my day in Cannes was my favorite, but my day at Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild was a close second, if not a tie. I’d heard the name Rothschild before but was not all that familiar with the family—just knew the name sounded rich and if they had a palace that kindly allowed commoners to visit, I had to do see it. 

(pink on the outside, pink on the inside)

We started the day with lunch, drinks and desert in the dining room. The menu is somewhat limited if I remember correctly but I wouldn’t pass it up. I mean how often do you get to say you dined in a palace?!
(ladies who lunch)
(the could have given me 1 more shrimp)

After lunch we took our time exploring each and every room of the opulent mansion learning the history with audio/headphones they provided us. Beware, there’s no air in the mansion, only in the dining area and I about died, but it was fun :) 
After the hot, sweaty indoor tour we went outside for some hot, sweaty outdoor fun where we took a ton of pics of course and explored the 9 gardens on the property. Actually, we only found 2 of the 9 :-/ Don’t tell anyone, but I can’t imagine it would have gotten any more beautiful then what we saw! 
With all that said, I highly, highly recommend a visit to Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild.

let's get social

  1. What a beautiful mansion! And that salad...looks amazing!


  2. Agreed.

    Beautiful mansion [despite no air] and photography. So much intricate detail within everything from the landscape [the gardens and waterfalls are what I imagine Heaven looks like] to the architecture to paintings to the images on the chairs.

    Love this post.

  3. Absolutely fabulous!! Descriptions were clear and detailed!
