Villa Kérylos in Beaulieu sur Mer

During your holidays, take the time to visit Villa Kerylos, ideally located on the shores of the Mediterranean along the Bay of Ants in Beaulieu sur Mer. It is a reproduction of a Greek villa on the island of Delos dating from the 2nd century BC.

It is not only the construction but also the furnishing, the decoration which restores all the nobility of the Greek villas. The materials are noble, the decoration is sumptuous with several frescoes inspired by Greek mythology.

Kerylos means "sea swallow", heralding a happy omen.

This sumptuous villa was built by the architect Emmanuel Pontremoli between 1902 and 1908, given the idea by ​​the owner Théodore Reinach, archaeologist and French statesman. This house would be his holiday home. Upon his death, the villa was bequeathed to the Institut de France. His family lived in the villa until 1966, when it was listed as a historic monument.
