villa ephrussi de rothschild
I already told you what we did on our last night, but here’s a rundown on what we did during the day! After visiting Eze, we got an uber to drop us off at Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. We spent at least two hours exploring the property – it is GORGEOUS!
In addition to the pretty pink
villa mansion and gorgeous gardens, there are absolutely incredible views everywhere you turn. Villa Ephrussi also has a really interesting history, as it was created for and owned by a woman (rare for the time period). Inside this rose-colored villa you’ll find grand antiques, an extensive collection of rare porcelain, art, sculptures, and more. The gardens are also classified as one of the Notable Gardens in France! Visiting Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild is an absolute must if you happen to be in or near Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat!!!
For my final outfit of the trip, I wore this silk Camilla dress I scored during a Shopbop sale earlier this spring. It was my first time to wear it, and I think it was pretty fitting for the location! The print features rich florals and a gilded design that reminds me of an elaborate gold frame for a magnificent piece of art. It is super lightweight and comfortable, and features a tie-front top + embellishments along the neckline. Super pretty! Fits true to size – I’m wearing a small.
After spending mid-morning at Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, we were both starving! We had an uber take us down to the Port where all of the waterfront restaurants are. While all of the places looked cute, we decided the menu looked best at Le Cadillac – the reviews are sort of all over the place online, but we both loved our meals!! I had the most delicious octopus salad, and Meghan said the greek salad was awesome too.
After lunch, we walked over to Paloma Beach for a quick visit – we didn’t get to actually hang out at the beach, but I’m glad we got a chance to see it!! Paloma Beach reminded me of some of Gray Malin’s photographs. It featured a perfectly white sandy beach, stunning turquoise waters, and bright towels and umbrellas dotting the sand. So beautiful!
Sadly we didn’t get to spend more time in Cap Ferrat, as we had those dinner reservations at Hotel du Cap Eden Roc in Antibes… but you better believe I’ll be going back someday! I really wish we could have had a few more days to explore this region of France. Getting a day-and-a-half taste was not enough for me!
