Villa Kerylos Reviews
Belle visite ! Le projet fou et majestueux d’un passionné de Grèce antique...Vue magnifique.... Je conseille la visite de cette villa. more »It's a great visit. The crazy and majestic project of an enthusiast of ancient Greece... Beautiful view.... I recommend visiting this villa.
Emplacement superbe et vues ex ceptionnelles par les baies des pièces. Par contre difficile de s extasier sur la merveille de reproduction d une villa grecque. J ai ressenti un certain.malaise à parta... more »Stunning location and ex-ceptional views by the rooms' bays. On the other hand difficult to rave about the wonder of reproduction of a Greek villa. I felt a certain unease to share the delirious fantasy of an enthusiast seeking to live everyday as in ancient Greece certainly with modern amenities but a pastist culture. If he had wanted to impress and surpass the cousins Ephrussi c is missed his villa it is the old copy esbroufe while the villa Ephrussi and its gardens are a reflection of an art of living. Well, it's always interesting to see what you can do with your wife's fortune as long as you have a huge ego and a fantasy passion.
As an architect I enjoyed Kerylos. The audio guide is good, perhaps a bit too detailed, but worth getting. I find the synthesis of Greek architecture with modern conveniences fascinating.
We frequently holiday on Cap Ferrat but had missed this place tucked away. Worth a couple of hours. Some nice eateries in nearby Beaulieu too.
