Villa Kerylos

I ran across photos of Villa Kerylos a while back but just recently took the time to research this interesting place.  Villa Kerylos is located on the French Riviera but is a recreation of an ancient Greek villa.  It was created by scholar Theodore Reinach who had a passion for Greece and his architect Emmanuel Pontremoli. It's not a complete imitation of the past but more of an homage that was finally completed in 1908.  It's open to the public now for tours and even wedding receptions.  I don't think I'd mind getting married at a place with that magnificent view.  How about you?
