    I recommend it to all. It's beautiful garden, the entrance is 15.90 euros, its worth every penny. Good restaurant for his value. I will come back

    What a pleasure to get lost in a luxuriant nature. Very nice time with the birds in the Aviary. Big enough parking on site.

    Always a good idea to spend a day with the family. Suitable for young children. They love the game corner near the snack

    This tiny jewel of a garden is worth every second it took for us to find it. Beautifully manicured property with meandering paths that provide well signed plants, original locales and sources. There is a beautiful waterfall (part man made), jumbo koi ponds where you can feed them. At the end there is goat petting zoo. Once you arrive they have a automated ticketing machine that takes Credit cards to avoid lineups. After the main entrance and past the giant koi pond, aim left to the small aviary where you will be greeted by free parrots looking for cups of syrup. They loved being neck scratched like a cat. Lovely day out. Expect a minimum of one hour to see the basics.
