The price was 10 Euros each to enter,there is a ramp for the less able, we started with the bottom garden with a fountain, the gardens were well sighned and very well kept, there is a place to get a brew if needed.

It's okay but it's an extremely steep and exhausting walk. Mostly uphill and not very many flowers. I would not go again.

Very extensive and beautifully maintained gardens. As with all the lakeside gardens it is quite steep in places but there is a small funicular style lift to get up to the house. The house is also very beautiful. It once apparently housed an art collection...More

Well worth a visit and if you are an English National Trust member you receive a discount on the admission charge. The gardens are spectacular and the Villa is really interesting.
