The garden " alcinnos" is a place of dreams and meditation is a magical place that brings back memories buried and it loses some of its cues from the modern world.Here and there a wrought iron gazebo houses a lounge contemplation.Well seated, we admire the garden like on a screen giant and dream .The paths of discovery of the Mediterranean garden are accessible to persons with reduced mobility.Most plants are listed.Visitors can also go around the field of agriculture and animal parks along the farm roads.
