It's hard to know where to start when reviewing these glorious gardens. Being a British born Italian, who is rather fanatical about gardening and gardens in general and a paid up member if the RHS and English heritage, I was a little sceptical about what we may find, it being Italy and Italy not always being that well organised... However,... More

As many others have said, this place is a treasure! The views of the Mediterranean at every turn were something to behold. The history of the property is ancient. The photography options were amazing. Even my husband, who is not a plant person, was in awe and appreciated our visit here! The temperature of early April could have not been... More

We spent several hours, wandering and relaxing in these gardens. Different pockets of plants from all over the world. Some quite formal and perfumed, others rambling. Lovely picnic area at the bottom of the garden so take your lunch and buy a cofree by the sea.

An outstanding sub-tropical garden. We went in January which was very pleasant, so May be quite hot in high summer. Many flowers were in bloom so it must be even better in spring and summer when many more plants come alive. Be aware, though, that while there are many paths there are a number of steps also, so some difficulty... More

A well maintained and labelled botanical garden in an idyllic setting on a hill stretching down to the Mediterranean. Suitable for all seasons, and even worthwhile in late December, and in some ways more enjoyable with fewer visitors and less intense heat. A pleasant cafe at the bottom, by the coast. I realise that egress onto the shore is impractical... More

Parking limited but worth the effort. The whole thing: the gardens, the plants, the walks, the views are unrepeatable. The mid-point cafe at the edge of the Mediterranean arrives at just the right time to fortify for the meander back.

This garden is quite large, and it lays onto a hill. So, those who are impaired in walking ( or simply lazy people) should consider that if you go down, thereafter you must return UPHILL. Yet, it is definitely not a problem for most people since everything around you invites to take your time and observe the beautiful plants, flowers,... More

We spent a beautiful day there on Wednesday the 29th October and I took some beautiful photos but mislaid my small camera and it has not been handed into the reception yet . If you find it please let me know I am not sure how long to say to stay you could happily spend the day there
