Get in touch to find out how we can help make your event at the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild extraordinary.
- Stylish & Sophisticated
This is the most complete, refined and sophisticated solution for the villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, offering only the best equipment and a solid technical platform suitable for building the most spectacular event. This experience adds movement and life to the ambience outdoors. All lights are entirely programmable with the potential to project animated graphics, slow-moving special effects or personalised gobos to the façade of the building. The sound equipment is of the highest quality both inside and out, with additional technical staff on-site all evening to implement the most detailed of briefs and to adapt to the changing dynamics of the event flow. Top-of-the-range control desks make it easy to incorporate complex technical riders for world-class entertainment. Lighting can be focussed to highlight floral centrepieces or other key features of the venue. For the gardens, we offer a choice of stylish chrome, vintage white, or crystal glass storm lanterns to illuminate the pond and decorate the passage between the lower and upper gardens. Inside, the venue is transformed into a contemporary nightclub with cutting edge animated lighting and extra starlight effects. For the full experience, we recommend adding our flagship mirror ball chandelier designed by Riviera Organisation, ocassionally copied but never equalled. The indoor furnishings are selected according to the theme of the design. Our recommendation is black or royal red velvet that complement the existing colours of the venue. Other colours or styles are proposed to be sure the setting fits in with the overall event design. Our DJ/music programmer will be on-site to complete the music experience and to manage the soundtrack to any live performances and key moments of the event. If you bring your own DJ, you can be sure they will have all the facilities they need with the very latest DJ gear.
- Natural & Elegant
This experience complements the villa perfectly, offering high quality elegant equipment and all the essential elements for a beautiful event. The venue is already spectacular. We bring simple but smart equipment to complement what is already on- site: high quality sound & lighting inside and out, candles around the pond, and lounge furniture for the party area. Outside, we create a warm glow around the dining area using classy white street lamps that are entirely cable- free. The façade is lit using the villa’s own in-house lights. On the terrace, are chic white sound columns designed by Porsche that blend harmoniously into the décor of the venue. Additional amplified speakers are hidden behind the bushes to ensure an impeccable yet discreet sound for background music or speeches. After dark, the fountain pond flickers with beautiful candles in white terra-cotta pots on elegant wrought iron stands. Key features of the garden are lit by built-in lighting and we highly recommend the villa’s stunning animated fountain show to highlight key moments of the evening. Inside, we create a sleek lounge setting, with smooth white furniture inside the 4 corners of the inner columns. This encourages guests to stay inside during the after-party, which in turn improves the dynamics of the dance floor. There’s a high-quality L’Acoustics sound system with separate bass speakers to boost the pulse of the party. Intelligent DJ lighting effects synchronise automatically with the beats of the music to dynamize the ambiance. Our DJ will keep the dance floor packed all night with a refreshing mix of contemporary dance, special requests and instantly recognisable party anthems.
- Warm & Vibrant
This experience offers versatility and a set-up which reflects your personality. We provide the latest sound equipment, programmable coloured lighting and a wide choice of decorative elements. We bring a full range of high quality lights that can be easily programmed to create colours and moods that can be instantly tweaked according to the event flow or your personal taste. For the dining area, we recommend a warm amber glow, but you have complete control over the colours at all stages of the evening. A state-of-the-art sound system assures a sublime acoustics for background music and live performances. Additional amplified speakers in both the upper and lower gardens mean we can manage volume levels perfectly, with low-level ambient music while guests are eating, and a higher volume for speeches or musical attractions that comply with the venue’s noise restrictions. The gardens are decorated with hanging lanterns around the pond, and additional vintage white lanterns leading up to the dining area. Inside, we create a contemporary nightclub vibe with programmable animated lighting effects on the balcony and stylish cable-free uplights under the arches. The setting is completed with a choice of white lounge furniture that reflects the colours of the lighting. Choose between our chic, smooth, white paradise range or the more trendy white Chesterfield sofas with matching armchairs, coffee tables and bars. A specialist sound engineer will optimise the sound for the venue with high quality L’Acoustics speakers and a powerful digital sound desk. The DJ will manage the soundtrack to the entire event from the moment guests arrive until the last ones leave.

- Upbeat Acoustic Strolling Bands
The French Riviera is the home to some of the world's finest upbeat acoustic strolling bands. Here's our suggestion for a typical performance at this venue: 45 minute upbeat background music set during the drinks reception; 30 minute interactive singalong set between courses to step up the mood; 30 minute dynamic party set after dinner before the DJ takes over inside. A big advantage is that they need no sound system, which is perfect for the gardens of the villa. You can navigate between different videos using the menu on the top left corner of the video. The Phly Boyz and The Troubadours are our favourite local options, and this video from the London-based Juke Joints perfectly captures the mood of upbeat acoustic events on the French Riviera.
