Villa Kérylos: a tribute to Greek civilization
It stands out against the spectacular landscape of the Eze cliffs with its unique style. Opposite the Mediterranean Sea, Villa Kérylos dominates the small Baie des Fourmis in Beaulieu-sur-Mer. Built at the beginning of the 20th century at the instigation of Théodore Reinach, an archaeologist and French statesman fascinated by Greek civilisation, the Villa boasts a decor that has been though out down to the smallest of details. Organized around the traditional peristyle, the Villa contains the most precious materials: antique stucco, marble from Carrara or Sienna, and hardwood furnishings. The decoration is sumptuous: mosaics and frescoes that are directly inspired by antique documents, vases and wall paintings that illustrate the greatest scenes depicting the gods and legendary heroes. The luxury home, a listed historic monument, invites you on a journey through space and time, just like the works of Antoine Pierini.
