The gardens are in a bucolic setting, yet they are sophisticated, beautiful, and surprising. There is even a labyrinth.

This is a pretty cool alternative to a hotel, although they don't serve food other than breakfast, the owners will give you some great suggestions. The biggest surprise of all for me is the secret swimming pool which is out of this world. I can't...More

Absolutely beautiful gardens, with so much more to them than you could expect looking at the map. Just stroll along and you will find yourself in hidden tunnels, mazes, little "temples" and many more. Beautifully taken care of and there are lovely tea rooms, too.
