The property is very well taken care of and absolutely beautiful. We went on a Friday afternoon in June and it wasn't crowded at all.

The building is lovely but the best part for me are gardens. With different styles from different parts of the world. Huge trees, cactuses. Many unusual kinds of plants :).
