The dedicated indigenous garden, textures in the cork oak forest and the fresh scents wafting from the terraces of the picking garden will appeal to all the senses. 

Other enchanting secrets worth discovering are the inspiring vegetable garden, wetlands and the gurgling mountain stream flowing into soothing lily ponds.

The magnificent Tokara garden has been beautifully captured in the Tokara Collection, a new hand-crafted range of pure linen.
