Visit to Villa Taranto

A triumph of nature and beauty

In Verbania, in 1931, the Scottish Captain Neil McEachern decided to buy the Marchesa di Sant’Elia property to transform it into a prototypical British garden. And today this garden charms its visitors with thousands of different plants from every corner of the world. The herbarium, with its 43 display cases containing real flowers from the United Kingdom, the Fontana dei putti decorated with multi-coloured flowers, the Dahlia maze, with more than 1,700 plants, the Victoria Greenhouse and the Vertical gardens: visit them and experience the incredible scents.

“A nice garden doesn’t have to be big, it just has to be the realisation of your dream, even if it’s just a couple of metres squared on a balcony.”

(Captain Neil Mc Eacharn)
