The Villa Ephrussi, designed in the Venetian style, is a treasure house filled top to bottom with beautiful things.
But although we toured the house, we were really there to see the grounds, classified as
one of the Notable Gardens of France. There are nine themed gardens including Florentine, Spanish, Japanese and French. And as you stroll along the many paths the views of the Mediterranean continually appear.
