Words can't describe the Villa Jardins, Ephrussi de Rothschild, so I'll let the photos do the talking:
The palace (filled with art collections) and gardens were built during the Belle Ėpoque by Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild, and I decide I want to come back as a baroness.
Instead at five, I take the 81 back to Villefranche, stop in a little shop for a local red wine, brie, ripe cherries, then take the downhill walk back to my little hotel. I'm a bit sunburnt, but what a first day! before long, the moon is rising over the bay on my sweet little paradise. Goodnight moon.
