While attending French school here on the Cote d’Azure, we are free on the weekends. Maurice came down and one day we decided to take the bus and visit the Villa And Gardens of Beatrice de Rothschild in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat. To say they are magnificant is an understatement. Beatrice had a passion for travel where she collected many things, a passion for pink which she often wore and her home was painted pink too, and a passion for her garden.
There were eight separate gardens all blended together. These were in the exotic garden. There was also a Spanish garden, Florentine, Stone, Japenese, Rose, French and Provencal gardens. There were fountains that came on with music every twenty minutes.
