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?
