FUN FACTS Event Planner: House Of Kirschner Floral Design: Wayne Riley Flowers Photographer: Sarah Stefani Did you know? FUN FACTS ABOUT THE VILLA Did you know the villa is just over 100 years old? It was built between 1905 and 1912 by the Baroness Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild. It was designed by the French architects Jacques Marcel Auburtin and Aaron Messiah who were influenced by the grandiose Italian villas at the time. Who was Baroness Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild? The Baroness was a lover of art and she filled the mansion with antiques furniture, old master painters, sculptures, and extension collection of rare porcelain. Among her collection is a games table that once belonged to Marie Antoinette, and a rug commissioned by Louis 14th. Who owns it now? When the Baroness died in 1934, the villa was donated to the Academie de Beaux Arts, so that it could eventually be open to the public. It’s managed by Culture Espaces who look after several magnificent venues in France including the Roman Arena of Nimes and the stunning Carrière de Lumières in Les Baux de Provence. The gardens were inspired by a ship The gardens are among the most beautiful in the world. They were designed in the form of a ship with the sea visible on all sides. There are no fewer than 9 themed gardens including the Spanish and Florentine gardens that you will walk through on the way into your event. Dinner is usually in the central French gardens. It’s worth a visit to the Japanese gardens which are hidden away behind the Love Temple at the end of the fountain area. The building was once yellow When it was originally built, the main facade was bright yellow. It was painted pink after the war to give it a Venetian feel. The view is one of the best in the world It’s official. The stunning view of the Bay of Villefranche from the balcony in the Florentine gardens was rated the best view in the world by TripAdvisor.
