  • Relaxing walk in a beautiful garden. We went with our 2 year old daughter. Note that the villa is currently closed for renovations. 
  • Visiting the park with family and friends. The reborn Park, after a period of neglect, thanks to individuals who have invested in this wonderful project. Beautiful grounds, we look forward to that we can also visit the Interior of the villa to return.

  • We stumbled upon this gem, through reading a brochure found in the hotel. We thought you could visit the villas and, almost reluctantly, we stuck the Garden: thank goodness! It's beautiful, well maintained with two trails maintained and kept clean, panels that explain the history of the most important places. Should be better publicized, so that it becomes common knowledge, consistent with the needs of the property is private.
