Villa of the Côte d’Azur - Kerylos

Did you know that the heritage of the French Riviera is particularly attractive from the sea? If you are attentive, you can observe many wonders during a private cruise. In order not to miss the tiniest detail, we devote several articles to this subject. Initially, we will be interested in architecture and especially villas. In the lines that follow, find our presentation of Villa Kerylos.

All aboard

Beaulieu-sur-Mer is a city ranked among the most beautiful on the Côte d'Azur. Its privileged location between land and sea as well as its environment makes this place an exceptional place. It is here, in the port of Beaulieu-sur-Mer, that we propose to sail without a license. It is also on the seaside of this town that is the villa Kerylos.

Cap on the Villa Kerylos

Located on the rocky point of the plage des fourmis, Villa Kerylos overlooks the bay. This white building stands out by displaying a very original architectural style. Built in the middle of a garden, the building is an invitation to travel as it reuses the architectural codes of ancient Greece.

Who seduced Presidents Macron and Xi Jinping

On March 24, 2019, the French and Chinese Presidents met in Villa Kerylos, accompanied by their wives, and also Monaco, Nice and Paris. We were not far from the front row and followed this 3-day state visit as close as possible due to security reasons.

The house has existed for a century and is still admired by people all over the world. A trip to the sea will offer you a breathtaking view not only of the beautiful garden surrounding the building but also of this incredible homage to a lost civilization.
