This was our sixth holiday in Crete but our first visit to the gardens. What had we missed! A wonderful setting and an amazing collection of trees and plants plus a very good restaurant.

The garden is impressive and you feel the passion with what it was designed. For the really botanically interested people some more signs and tables would be nice. The restaurant is also really nice. The food is delicious and the staff super friendly!
