a wonderful place to see plants, herbs,trees you have heard about but never seen from all over the world,all in natural surroundings tucked up in the hills of Crete. A twisty but not too long road up to the restaurant which has superb views down into the valley.Orange trees abound and the juice drinks are sublime. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Hats and walking sticks are available, it is hot and although the paths are fine it is uphill and down , two main routes one an hr the other 2 hrs. We did the1 hr as it was very hot - we loved it and were fascinated to see all the vegetation, I believe there was a fire 3 yrs ago that destroyed a huge amount so i feel who ever works on the Gardens need to be congratulated on the work they must have done to achieve the high standard they have, just the odd tree trunk to show that there was a fire. I hope you get many visitors over the coming years.
