  • Great intro to this art form and reasonable prices for pieces created onsite. Interesting estate with a lot of history. Beautiful gardens and spectacular 400 year old tree.

  • Visited as part of a longer excursion, this was interesting for a quick walk around though the half hour we were given was overkill in my opinion. 10 to 15 minutes is sufficient to see the grounds and listen to the short presentation on batik crafting. Still, it was well maintained and had some nice gardens as well.
  • Love come here on our way to the Fort! It's so beautiful here.
