Hearst Castle has a cinema, library, bouncy house, wine cellar and VIP rooms. It is surrounded by white marble stonework and blue water. One side of the pool is built as a temple of Poseidon, while the other side is a pyramid-shaped gatehouse modeled after the ancient Athenian one. The pool is surrounded on both sides by columns with reliefs by Italian artists, and on the corners of the pool are stone sculptures by French artists reflecting the birth of Eros. 127 acres of huge gardens surround three separate villas named Sun, Mountain and Sea View; each one was designed for entertaining different groups of guests. Hearst was a lifelong collector of art and thus every piece of furniture in his home is artistic treasure."
