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.

We loved our visit to this garden. Bought food to feed the fish and spotted the iguana (nearly missed it). There was lots of beautiful orchids on display. We spent quite a bit of time wandering around. Did not try the tea room.

This was the second stop of a 3 garden tour from P&O Azura in Oct 16. I can only wish we had spent longer here and not the other two gardens as this really was a most beautiful garden to see being the work of one Englishman who designed this garden. On entering the garden you come across a large... 更多

We were under the impression the garden was free to enter, this was not the case the cost is 4.75 euros. No prices are advertised and your only aware of a charge on entry. The garden is relatively small but there are two ponds with koi carp but several of these appeared to have a skin complaint. There is however... 更多

Although referred to as an orchid garden, there is also a variety of other flowers and trees including a very old dragon tree. It also includes other visual features such as a pond filled with colourful carps, water lilies set against a background of lush, well established water papyrus, a fountain, statues, ornamental pots and a life size recreation of... 更多

A smallish garden of delights complete with orchids, Dragon tree, fish and a three legged iguana. Welcoming coffee shop. If you happen upon a middle aged gentleman pottering around picking up fallen leaves it is most likely to be the owner who is more than happy to tell you story of the garden. Do not miss this place.
