We visited the villa, but unfortunately didn’t have time to walk around the gardens. If you want to do both give yourself half a day. The English guide around the villa was excellent and had a good sense of humour. Well worth a visit as...More

The garden area is truly amazing, we spent a couple of hours here, from statues, waterfalls to 1/2 a WW1 ship in the garden, so quirky and interesting, some areas are quite steep with steps, would definitely recommend a visit here

There are similarities to this “golden cage” with Neuschwanstein Castle, due the eccentricity of their creators. Both were stunningly self obsessed and expressed that within their creations. That said this place is also stunningly unique. The introductory video in the museum is quite long, but...More

What an amazing place. An eclectic collection inside and outside.A large garden area with lots of places to explore. Tour of the house is a must as it is well worth seeing. Who puts a large ship in their garden!

The house will be fine in wet weather but the garden will not be. The garden is very steep and I think the paths would be quite dangerous in wet weather as they could be slippery. We don’t use the little train but it went... More
