Gardens of the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild
In the early 1900's, Beatrice Ephrussi, a Rothschild baroness built a pink-confection, Venice-style villa surrounded by breathtaking gardens, with the sparkling sea beyond. Pathways meander through the seven themed gardens, with a lily-pad dotted pool, dancing fountains, and a Temple of Love replicating the Trianon at Versailles. There are also a Provecal garden, filled with olive trees and lavender, a lapidary garden, with sculptures too large to be displayed in the villa, and Spanish, Japanese, Florentine, and exotic gardens.
