  • Beautiful garden. Calm, clean, lots of spectacular plants from all around the world to see. Paths can be steep or have stirs, not everything ist suitable for strollers or elderly. The Villa itself...

  • Such a beautiful place. The gardens are well tended and its so peaceful to walk around. Plenty of seats to rest and take in the views. Small cafe good food . Also toilet facilities dotted around. We'll worth a visit. Very reasonably priced
  • We had a lovely time! The gardens are beautiful with a gorgeous view over Lake Como. There are different routes that you can follow depending on the time you have available. I can highly recommend this!
