“Forget about the museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

You actually pay quite a bit... I agree that the garden is wonderful and it is a nice walk down towards the bay, but the so called museum (2 rooms upstairs) are not worth the money. It is a collection of old books/pictures and little pieces from here and there. As i am Austrian and used to old historical things, I was not really impressed.
Anyways, the garden is great with stunning views and the walk past the old olive trees and down towards the restaurant is just a must do.

First class location, staff, food - everything. Fantastic views out to the sea - just a pity the weather was not great.

“Stunning Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

So beautiful. Visit the charming little palace which was built by the Archduke simply because he loved the views of Sa Foradada and this coastline. Stay for sunset if you are not intimidated by the challenging approach roads when it gets dark!!

“Lovely views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

If you are up for good walk then I highly recommend going down to the seaside. Be sure to ask permission at the house/gardens before you venture off. The house/gardens are well worth a visit.
