Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild - the Florentine Garden

The villa is surrounded by nine gardens over 7 acres.

The Florentine garden overlooks the Bay of Villefranche. At its centre is a wide horseshoe staircase framing an enchanting grotto planted with philodendron, water hyacinth and giant papyrus.

The formal Villa gardens are indeed beautiful. We ere there in late May and lots of plants and flowers were in bloom.

Rather an interesting pattern for those two jets of water. Curious, in fact.
