The peninsula of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and its surroundings are dotted with prestigious villas. Unfortunately, most of them are not to be visited. However, one can see some of them or detour a road.

So, here is a small guided tour in two of these precious jewels of Saint Jean Cap Ferrat .

First, the villa Ephrussi de RothschildThe museum has an impressive mix of styles, as much for its art collection as for its 9 gardens.

Indeed, the Baroness de Rothschild wished to have the best of each era. Indeed, as an objet d'art even if harmony is not always obvious. This makes a visit to the villa a real jewel case full of jewels.

In addition, you will also have the opportunity to cross 9 gardens: Spanish, Lapidary, Florentine.

Also, the French garden with its musical water games. I confess it's my favourite!

The show is unique and original.

Second, Santo sospir la villa tattooed by jean Cocteau.

Thus, from 1949 and during more than 3 years Jean Cocteau will paint the walls, the doors ... of this house.

Now, mosaic frescoes and tapestry dress Santo Sospir.

(Until the 1st quarter of 2020 the villa will remain closed to the public during the restoration work). Therefore, we can't wait for the work to be finished to enjoy this magical place!
