  • We loved this little side-trip on our road trip - for 3 euros you can visit this well preserved house and garden. They have limited English tours but the pamphlet is useful. Great gift shop as well.
  • A must see. Don't miss this, great value for 5 euro. Priceless and a national treasure.
  • Breathtakingly beautiful. Great guided tour included with the entry price
  • Nice guided tour. Low price. Awesome art.
  • Nice to look around for a few hours. But quite small.
