DEMEURE UNIQUE DE LA GRECE ANTIQUE
K erylos, whose name means sea swallow, is an architectural dream come true. In Mediterranean surroundings, similar to the coasts of Greece, the villa stands out against an imposing cliff face, surrounded by a garden washed by the dazzling blue of the waves beneath an azure sky. Erected on the 'Baie des Fourmis' in Beaulieu between 1902 and 1908, the villa is an absolutely unique recreation of the dwellings of ancient Greece, a striking image of refinement and beauty. Even in Greece there is not a museum which evokes the daily life of the ancient Hellenes so eloquently. Theodore REINACH (1860-1928), a scientist, eminent Hellenic scholar, and archeologist, designed this incredible building, which was classed as an historical monument in 1967. Decorated to a rare standard of sumptuousness (objet d'art, noble materials), today it is the jewel in the crown of the Theodore REINACH foundation.
