This replica ancient Greek residence, constructed between 1902 and 1908, was painstakingly designed by archaeologist and devoted Hellenophile Theodore Reinach. Both indoors and out, the villa is a fastidiously flawless copy of a second-century Greek home. All period furniture was re-created using traditional Greek methods, while various rooms incorporated 20th-century conveniences, such as running water in the villa’s balaneion, or thermal baths. The bucolic waterside gardens, dotted with olive and pomegranate trees, offer sweeping vistas over nearby Cap-Ferrat. Little wonder the site now doubles as a wedding venue for ultra-high net worth individuals, aided by the villa’s proximity to five-star hotels like the Royal Riviera and Grand Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat.
