Stunning Historical Venue in France

The historical Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild was chosen after an exhaustive site selection process. The stunning south of France villa dates back as far as 1912, when Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild used her father’s inheritance to arrange for the construction of the stunning villa as her winter residence, after her separation from her husband in 1904.

The Location

Nice is a very charming city built on a fascinating heritage, yet with an innovative and contemporary twist to suit corporate functions perfectly. The international airport is only 15 minutes from the city centre, and the Nice Conference Centre for medical research Acropolis Palais des Congrès offers 30,000 square meters of space. The food culture and wine standards are incredibly high, and along with the stunning surrounding beaches and quaint cobbled streets, Nice offers luxury, history and infrastructure to suit all your conference needs.

Historical Venue in France Rothschild


The South of France presents certain challenges when delivering events. Not least those surrounding permits and permissions, such as graded listed buildings, and this was no exception. venuesfrance.com with it’s local offices and relationships was in the position to have both used this venue for previous events, but also to understand the dynamics of the local bureaucracy so as to better serve the client requirements and needs. So in this case, coach and transport access, external catering company access, and finally special permissions to erect a temporary hard sided marquee had to be agreed and negotiated in advance of the event.


The venuesfrance.com™ team used their in-depth local knowledge of the administration structures and bureaucracy surrounding protected heritage sites in order to secure the most exquisite historical venue in France, the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild. They also negotiated the permission to allow access for all the transport, catering and marquees throughout the event. They also secured the best caterers in the vicinity, so to compliment the unique congress experience with only the best flavours of the South of France.
