The gardens are spectacular. It's like a story that's being unrevealed beneath your eyes. It surprising and gets you in a relaxing nice mood. The castel is impressive by it's simplicity and it's location in direct relation and dialogue with the gardens.

It is about 15 km far (about 20 minutes by car) from your hotel. You can look at google.maps to see the routes. In summer, it is opened daily from 8:00 till 20:00.
