Directions to Villa Kerylos
The Greek Villa Kerylos at Beaulieu-sur-Mer literally translates as Villa Kingfisher, a bird in Greek mythology believed to be a good omen. This spectacular Villa is a stunning example of Greek architecture designed by Emanuel Pontremoli in 1902 for Theodore Reinach an archaeologist and historian who loved Greek culture.
Interestingly, Reinach's wife was cousin to Baron Ephrussi who built the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, just a twenty minute walk from the Villa Kerylos in St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. So, if you fancy a real sight-seeing packed day you can walk between the two Villas in one afternoon. And what a beautiful walk it is, not to mention the stunning views of the penninsula at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, both from the villa and the grounds.
The interior of the Villa is decorated throughout with authentic ancient Grecian antiques, some really fine examples are housed here and preserved exquisitely.
Entrance is priced at 8,50 Euro for adults or 15,00 Euro if you combine it with the Villa Euphrussi de Rothschild. Children are admitted at 6,30 Euro or 10,70 Euro when combined with Villa Euphrussi de Rothschild. Other concessions are available for students and the elderly.
