  • Every year they host a contemporary art exhibit. This year there was a glass theme. There is something special about seeing art in a natural setting like the woodland path.
  • A selection of antique furniture in a historic and beautiful setting
  • The buildings are all closed for the season. Wait until May 27, 2017.
  • I liked almost everything in the house, wall paper, picture frames, light fixture, narrow beds... I loved the very tall studio with interesting small pieces of works like hands. The garden was well designed by Daniel. Also you can enjoy walk through the forest at the end of the garden. The guide was excellent with good knowledge.
