The gardens are nice and so is the exhibition but both are quite small. They could do a little more maintenance on the gardens. 7,50 € p.p. is too expensive for what you get. 3-4 € would be more appropriate.

Fantastic and interesting place to amble around. Well laid-out gardens with plenty to see, and relax with a glass of their homemade fruit juices at the pond-side bar. Well worth the drive over, and great value for money. Lots of steps so not too sure...More

It is a very beautiful place definitly worth visiting. For a family of 5 persons the entrence of 7.50 per person (37.50 in total) seemed to us a little bit too much, though.

Worth the drive to see these very well kept, tranquil, authentic gardens. Price for entrance 7.50 per person (for adults) was absolutely fair and well worth-it. It felt like being transported to the past where life was simple and people were happier.
