This is not to be missed. The gardens are beautiful with rows of cypress trees. The gardens are similar to French gardens. Not to be missed

If Adam & Eve were here they would have been obsessed with selfies like everyone else and the history of the world would have played out differently. The garden goes on forever and even offers shade.

Fantastic, well worth the time to walk round. We thought it may be expensive but it was very reasonable. It takes about half a day to do it justice but it is well worth it. Transport from the city is very easy and regular.

Hello, I was there again in April 2017 and the beds were in full bloom so nothing to worry about if April is your choice.
