Today we take a moment to daydream of leaving the city to escape to the gorgeous garden of the Villa Elphrussi de Rothschild, overlooking the French Riviera on a glorious summer day.
Located in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, the villa was designed by the French architect Aaron Messiah and built for Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild in 1905, and is famous as the setting for the 1988 film “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.”
Ah, but who cares about movies when you have such gardens! The nine themed gardens took seven years to complete and have been classified among the Notable Gardens of France.
Shall we meet at the Temple of Love? xoxo
