Beautiful Gardens

The villa is not open to the public, but the gardens are beautiful in mid April. A very nice place to stroll!

Just perfect. Don't except pretty little flower beds. It's trees and bushes and wonderful views. We were lucky to have perfect weather. There's nothing there not to like

Could not view the villa as privately owned, the gardens were like your average park gardens, €6.50 each was waste of money.

Explore at your own pace enjoy the winding paths and multiple heights to view the gardens from. Most plants are identified. I was not able to find the toilet, though there was a sign.

Very beautiful gardens, well worth a wander through. The plants were all in bloom and it was the lawns manicured. The seating is placed to rest and take in the views! On the down side, toilets not the best!

This place is a lovely mix of architecture, landscaped gardens and lake views. We spent an hour wandering around a few times, chilling out and enjoying the quiet. Tip - 2 day pass is only 1.50€ more than a 1 day pass (8€ instead of 6.50€)
