“good if you are really into palms”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

we were delighted to find that this house did have a tour yesterday at 2.30- very pleased. unfortunately the guide spoke only in French and no other information was available so a bit ( to say the least) frustrating. the house isnt open to the public which is a shame. the garden is ok but not inspiring or beautiful. great if you are into palms but there really isnt much else. i know a bit about konig and his background but that really didnt feature at all. worth going to fill in a bit of background about him but not much else. the french really dont seem to put much effort into their gardens or public spaces- perphaps i have been spoilt by the national trust

“Don't bother”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We walked a long way on a hot day only to find that you can only go in at a certain time of the week - we were too late. We were allowed to sneak in but it wasn't really worth the effort unfortunately.

“Garden needs tender loving care”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

Weeds and bare earth everywhere. Guided tours only (Tuesday 10am) in rapid French only. We speak reasonable French but guide wouldn't slow down and no leaflets or info in any other language. Rudimentary toilet facilities
