Weekend Reflections 8 - Villa Ephrussi



This week's reflection shot is of the beautiful Villa Ephrussi on Cap Ferrat, French Riviera. If you want to find out more about the Ephrussi dynasty, originally from the Ukraine and married into the Rothschild family, look no further than the wonderful book "The Hare with Amber Eyes" by potter Edmund de Waal - part art history and part family memoir, it is a fascinating story......

Amazing what people can (and will) do if given a little bit of money to spend... Did you actually go in, or just admire from a distance ?
