This 13th century cloister was brought from France in the 60s. Set in lovely garden settings it’s a nice place to visit and get good pictures. They have signs saying private but no one told us to leave. Be responsible and enjoy

Visited just the gardens so no need to join the long ticket queues go through. Timed our visit for the musical fountains which were amazing. Spent 5 hrs walking round and covered miles. You can hire golf buggies . Well worth the visit

These gardens are breath taking. I could have spent the whole day looking at the wonderful variety of sculptures, gardens and beautiful lake.

Walked here from the Warwick hotel up the road. Worth the heat to view the sea from this vantage, plus the beautiful gardens, pathways, and iron work. A short but picturesque visit if you're in the area.

This is a beautiful space, but as per the other reviews it unfortunately turned out to now be private property and you are not allowed to walk through it.

Despite the difficulty of obtaining information about 'the cloisters', I eventually found my way here. Hint: locals won't know what you are talking about if you refer to it as Versailles Garden. Also, I wanted to walk to it from my resort but Paradise Island...More
