  • It is a beautiful house with nice large grounds area and a beautiful view. The guide was really good and nice, the place is immaculately kept and knowing that it once belonged to and was much loved by R.L. Stevenson made it all the more intriguing for me.
  • Fantastic place. Living history. A must see!
  • Fantastic museum full of literature and lore. Beautifully presented grounds and garden as well.
  • Beautiful house and well worth a visit even if you are just exploring the gardens.
  • Good little Museum in the former home of Robert Louis Stevenson at Villa Vialima. The tour guides are knowledgeable and very welcoming.
