Nice garden for a walk. The lookout point is notable for their pyramid architecture. Take stairs to the top for a breathtaking view of green fields. You can get lavender ice cream here too.

The view here is really good. Stop by here and enjoy the wind, sunshine, and view are good. The pyramid itself is weird here, but climbing to the top give you a better view.

Nice short visit in the morning. It was quiet and you can see the aerial view of the garden in front.

This is a nice lookout point, probably the best if you want a good overview of the patchwork effect of the farms in the surrounding areas. Nice little garden next to the lookout with beautiful summer flowers.
