Villa Kérylos

Copyright 2009 Monte Carlo Daily Photo. All rights reserved

Just along the coast from Monaco at Beaulieu-sur-Mer is the fascinating Villa Kérylos. It's a perfect reconstruction of a luxurious Greek palace dating from 2 B.C. and modelled on those found on the island of Delos. It's the only villa of its kind in the world.

A great day out is to visit Villa Kérylos in the morning and the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild and its glorious gardens at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in the afternoon. The second photo here was taken just outside the Villa Ephrussi, looking down on Villa Kérylos.

Do come back - tomorrow we'll start to look around.

Julie, Glenda and I visited Villa Kerylos when we were in Monaco in 2002. It has a spectacular location and is a gem on the inside. I am looking forward to your photos.

Looks an interesting place, and from previous comments it will be worth a visit. Great blue sea & sky.
