The mansion was built in 1730 and it seems was originally the headquarters and wine cellars of a Dutch wine exporting company.

In 1774 it was purchased by a Mr.Archibald Little a British merchant whose family owned the house until 1854 (thereby the name Little's Place, in Spanish SITIO LITRE)

In 1856 the property was bought by a Mr.Charles Smith whose family have owned the house right up until 1996, a period of 140 years. The historic English garden was first planned by the Little family, and added to by the Smith family.

Many famous personalities have spent time in SITIO LITRE either as house guests or simply as guests at the numerous garden parties given in the magic garden.

Amongst the most famous house guests were William Wilde, the father of Oscar Wilde, but possibly the most famous of all was Marianne North, the well known botanical painter, who lived in this house for two months in 1875, she is remembered in the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in London, where all her 832 paintings are on view. Many of her Tenerife works were painted in this garden (and we have placed copies of these around the garden, so you can see that even after 130 years, the garden is practically the same)

Party guests were numerous, but to name only three, we can mention Sir Richard Burton, who passed through Tenerife on two occasions between 1860 and 1863, Sir Richard was the first European to enter the holy city of Mecca (dressed as a Muslim), he also discovered lake Tanganika, but he is best known for having translated the three erotic works of the east into English, these being "The Kamasutra", "The perfumed garden" and "The Arabian Nights".

Many years later Agatha Christie and her daughter Rosalyn were on holiday in Puerto de la Cruz, the year was 1927 and she had just divorced her first husband, she was so inspired by the gardens that she wrote one of her novels, basing the plot in Puerto de la Cruz "The mysterious Mr.Quin".

The first of all these guests should not be forgotten, he was one of the world's most famous discoverers and botanist. The famous German explorer Alexander Von Humboldt, he was the guest of honour at a party given for him on June 23rd 1799 by Mr Archibald Little. The house is still a private residence but the owners have decided to open the gardens to visitors, so they can savour this "Vision of Eden" and view the lovely collection of orchids, possibly the best in the Canary Islands.

The SITIO LITRE garden is the oldest surviving garden in Tenerife, now 235 years old. It has been owned continuously by British families since 1774.

What a lovely peaceful oasis and would highly recommend if in Puerto de la Cruz. Not very big but this in no way detracts from the appeal-and refreshments are available.

In my opinion these are well worth a visit and definitely worth the steep up hill climb we did to reach them. Lovely cafe as well. Highly recommended to visit.

My visit to the Orchid Garden in June was a sheer delight. It is, as they say, "Small, but perfectly formed" the variety of blooms was stunning, in both colour and shape. The pond and surrounding garden is beautifully planted and maintained. The café gave us the opportunity to just sit and enjoy the tranquillity of the Garden. A very... 更多

This was a delightful garden belonging to a manor house which is not open to the public. Entrance is cheap and kids are free. We spent an hour exploring the garden and then had a light meal in the cafe - very satisfactory. The garden contains more than orchids.

Hidden away you'll find a maze of connecting gardens waiting for you to explore. It's costs around 4 or 5 euros entry and there is an option to pay less than a Euro to feed the fish (you'll see massive coy all jumping excitedly to be fed!). Whilst small there is alot to see, a 600 year old tree (which... 更多

There are many other plants and trees as well as the (excellent) orchids. The gardens have a sense of peace and the history and links to a well know author are fascinating. Very friendly staff and a nice outside café to finish off a pleasant couple of hours. The gardens are just a short walk from the centre of town... 更多

I visited these gardens in May and again in June,it really was a beautiful experience on both occasions.Apart from the fantastic orchids,the other exotics plants are incredible.You have to have a camera to share the outstanding gardens with friends and family.I strongly recommend a visit if you are staying in Puerto de la cruz or just visiting.

I visited this place with my teenage son (19), he wasn't really interested in watching flowers, more in sitting in the small charming cafe at the back of the park and drinking lemonade but we both left the place happy. We had free entrance but fee for adult isn't too expensive in my opinion - about €4.50, if you are... 更多
