A piece of ancient Greece in France, Villa Kerylos

There are many beautiful Villas around the French Riviera, some of them being real piece of art, worth paying a visit. For example, the stunning Villa Ephrussi we visited last year, here.

Just a few weeks ago we visited the Villa Kerylos, which was imagined by Theodore Reinach, an archeologist who loved everything greek.

The Villa is located in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, and has a nice garden overlooking the sea and also a view of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

Everything in the house reminds us of ancient Greece. The frescoes on the walls, the furnitures, the sculptures, the mosaics on the floor, etc.

Existen muchas Villas hermosas alrededor de la Riviera Francesa, algunas de ellas son verdaderas obras de arte que vale la pena visitar, por ejemplo la Villa Ephrussi que visitamos el año pasado, aquí.

Hace unas semanas visitamos la Villa Kerylos, imaginado por Theodore Reinach, un arqueologo que amaba todo lo griego antiguo.

La villa esta en Beaulieu-sur-Mer y los jardines tienen vista al mar y tambien hacia Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

Todo dentro de la casa nos recuerda la Grecia antigua, los frescos en las paredes, los muebles, las esculturas, los mosaicos en el piso etc.
