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.

Just something to do and mentioned by the travel rep. Cost Euro 4.75 for entry - not a fortune but hardly worth it. Allow no more than an hour at the outside to complete your tour. I expect that in their day the gardens would have been magnificent but those days seem long gone with tired and unkempt displays. Very... 更多

The gardens have a long English history, with many famous visitors from the past including Agatha Christie who wrote some works in the gardens. Now there are carp ponds, a croquet lawn, orchids and other plants plus a 400 year old Dragon Tree. Best described as a quiet oasis, probably not the best location for younger children especially as the... 更多

Hidden away in the streets of Puerto del la Cruz, this beautiful garden hosts a number of wonderful plants, particularly Orchids. A must see on your visit.

An excellent half-day trip to a location just inland of Puerto town centre. If you’re lucky you’ll find a three-legged iguana, named Nelson, who sometimes stands motionless by the pool just inside the entrance. Otherwise, he lurks under the vegetation, well-camouflaged (and that’s the whole point about being an iguana!). When we visited, early November, the large array of orchids... 更多
