Beautiful gardens

Beautiful gardens especially since they grow the same plants as you can grow in the UK. You can travel there by boat from Stresa quite easily.

We came in april when the magnolias and camelias were flowering , they were magnificent. Would love to be able to go every month to see the different flowering specialities. The garden is well planned out and well marked , many of the plants are labelled too and there are also plants that have been there years. The garden itself... More

Beautiful gardens! Very clean, peaceful gardens full of exotic plants, shrubs and trees. Manicured lawns, ponds and greenhouse, the gardens have it all. Located next to Lake Maggiore, with parking areas outside, the gardens are worth a visit. Don't forget to look at the lily pond and enjoy a coffee at the café!

This is a must see. The gardens and plant species are amazing and it is all tucked into a lovely spot on Lago Maggiore!

We spent an entire afternoon here. It is one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever visited. The Dahlia garden with over 350 varieties absolutely took my breath away. I could have spent the entire day there. The villa, the water garden, the terraced gardens and the walkways through this beautiful property make for a most pleasurable experience.

It takes about 2 hours to wander through this lovely garden, In the spring I'm sure the azaleas and rhododendrons would be gorgeous. Since we were there in late September, we got to see the largest display of giant dahlias that we've ever seen.

Give yourself a break and visit this wonderful garden. Count on 2-3 hours of meandering to really enjoy the view.
