Very Zen

We loved this garden. We thought it might have been past peak in October but we were pleasantly surprised that so many plants were in prime condition. The only downside was the service in the cafe.

Beautiful Gardens!
Sep. 2019
This is quite an attraction on Lake Maggiore, with its meticulous gardens and manicured flower beds. They give you a map that directs you through the various specialty gardens and various other features. It was especially nice for us because it was a beautifully warm day in September. Certain parts of the gardens have great views of the nearby city and the lake.

Incredibly special gardens!
Sep. 2019
Wow, what a beautiful collection! We stopped here on our way out of the Lake Maggiore area and couldn't believe some of the specimen trees we saw. It was a very easy garden to navigate, with visible signage pointing you in the correct direction to ensure you didn't miss anything! The specimen trees and plant collections were great, as well as the dahlia garden and annual displays! We took our time walking through and soaking everything up; it was a really lovely way to spend the morning!

Stunning garden
Sep. 2019
We took the ferry from Stresa to visit these gardens and spent about 3 hours walking around them. There are huge trees, stunning vistas and a water features. The map provided on entry was easy to follow, as well as the numbered arrows indicating the route through the garden. We are avid gardeners and thoroughly enjoyed this garden

Well planned experience
Sep. 2019 • Couples
A very well planned route to look at different plants and it seems thy cover different seasons well. In September we saw glorious dahlias but I spotted rows of acer trees and magnolias for colour displays in spring and autumn.

There’s a great wellness area with hammocks and loungers and a good cafe for post walk cake.

Magnificent
Sep. 2019 • Couples
Drove here in 30 minutes from our hotel is Stresa. Stunning gardens, well worth the €11 entry fee. Guide suggests 1.25 - 1.75 hrs but we spent 3.5 hrs wandering round, including an hour sunbathing in hammocks!! Really well signposted so you miss nothing, still loads of colour even in mid to late September.

Outstanding
Sep. 2019
Take about 2 hours to walk around this stunning garden on a well made even path. The route to see the best of the garden is well signed and a small map is also provided. If the route is followed everything is seen. The garden is on the side of a hill but the slopes were perfectly manageable for my 68 year old knees. The garden consists of wooded areas and formal gardens with ponds and water features and a new vista is seen at every turn. We did not see it may it's best as we were at the end of the summer season but it was still stunning.
