  • Garden located in the city center. Accessible for free (it's so rare!). Nice ride, complicated with children at an early age or focus on the stroller because the path is very steep!

  • Easily missed as its a small entrance in the middle of the village behind the bakery. You climb and climb through an amazing number of plants into a surprisingly big area. Nice views across the valley...  more »
  • Even in October the gardens are beautiful. Free to enter and wander around the steep slopes and meandering pathways with views across the valley. Copious bird life and we even spotted a black squirrel...  more »
  • A hidden gem. Great little trek through the gardens and a treat at the top overlooking the town.
  • Beautiful sometimes shady and sunny garden. The main road is tarred; practice with the stroller. There are also other paths between the cascades and plants for budding adventurers. Cool water waiting for the brave at the top with a breathtaking view of the Valley.

  • Beautiful place. This time this fall, but already seen also in the spring and summer, every time a treat for the senses.
