This villa with views of the Mediterranean was commissioned during the Belle Époque by humanist, archaeologist and deputy Théodore Reinach. He aspired to an original reconstitution of a Greek palace including the modern comfort of his time. Against the eclecticism of the time, this unique monument evokes the 2nd-century Greek houses.
