Villa Gairdín is an imposing country house built in the early 1800s in the gabled Elizabethan Gothic style, which enjoys unspoilt views over a large lake and the surrounding hills. Drive through the entrance gates along a tree lined avenue, across a bridge over the river with the lake to the right, and enter another world.
The main rooms of the house reflect the grand country house style with lofty ceilings, paneled and painted walls and tall windows overlooking the immaculate gardens and grounds. Cherished antique pieces and rich rugs and fabrics conjure up life in an earlier era, and as you take your place in the splendid dining room around the long table it is easy to imagine the many banquets of the past.
