If you happen to wonder whether the magnificent Villa Ephrussi De Rothschild is in any way connected to the wealthy and illustrious Rothschild Banking Family then you are right. This larger-than-life villa was built between 1905 and 1912 by the Baroness Beatrice de Rothschild and became her own personal museum for rare and expensive art, sculpture and antique furniture. Today this magnificent structure serves as art institute providing an in-depth insight into French culture and history. Visitors to this institute often rate the experience highly and the nine gardens surrounding the villa only add to its architectural appeal.

Villa Ephrussi De Rothschild Reviews & Ratings
One of the greatest gardens I have ever visited in the world. You cannot visit Nice/Monaco without making a little detour to see this wonder. There are 9 different gardens on site, all exquisitely maintained. I loved the French fountain garden, the musical fountain shows every 20 minutes are magical. To top it all off, the garden it built on a peninsula, so you have ocean views from 3 sides. Additionally, I would recommend stopping at the restaurant, even if just for a drink. The atmosphere is refreshing, with excellent service and food.
Already beautiful scenery from the drive up to the Villa from Nice, but stunning scenery from the Villa. Parking was cramped and narrow, tickets were around 18 € for one, they have a family deal, 4 tickets for around 52 €. Worth the visit if you like history, culture or just want to see a stunning old Villa. There's audio walk through in most rooms using your own mobile phone, just remember to take headphones with you.
Bussed from Nice to the Villa early in the day and had the villa to almost ourselves for the first hour. It’s a grand residence and is certainly worth the visit. The villa itself is a nice tour with a free audio tour but the grounds are what you are really there for. Spectacular gardens and vistas overlooking the Sea. You can walk to St Jean from the villa and together they make a nice day trip from Nice.
Villa Rothschild in Nice so match old and this need fix. But has a good collection of porcelain, a small collection of antique furniture and a very beautiful garden consisting of parts: Japanese, garden of roses, cacti and others. There is a restaurant in which you can cheaply drink a cup of espresso for 3 euros and a ball of ice cream 2 euros. From the bus stop you can go along the lower road, and on the way back, go down to the beach and see the sea, as billionaires see it from the windows of their villas standing on the shore.
Peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of Nice. Part of the banking Rothschild dynasty. Stunningly beautiful gardens representing different parts of the globe i.e Japan, Spain, England. Musical fountains overlooking the water features. Breath taking scenery and view across the french riviera. Easily located on a bus route and free with the riviera pass.
