Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild

We've taken a ride out a few miles East of Nice to St Jean Cap Ferrat: The address on the Cote d'Azur and one of my favourite places.
I'm in the garden of the Villa Ehrussi de Rothschild, a magnificent house and gardens in an incomparable setting. Not even the urban sprawl of the coast can diminish its beauty. I'm a definite fan! Did you guess?
Expect more photos of the gardens in future but for today this is the view from the garden across to Villefranche where the cruise ships anchor..

Beautiful! What is that very emerald color at the left: a dock?

Tut Tut: if we're looking at the same place, that's a roof with green tiles.
Olivier: there is a pinkish caste to the light it's true. Is that what you mean?

J'habite Nice et visite régulièrement la Villa Ephrussi et ses 9 jardins si différents à chaque saison... La Baronne Ephrusi avait fait don de cette merveille à l'Académie des Beaux-Arts de l'Institut de France... Si vous venez sur le Côte d'azur ne manquez pas cette visite http://www.villa-ephrussi.com/fr/ephrussi/508-un_palais_sur_la_mer/
