The pride of our owners and the joy of guests. Relax in a cool, shaded courtyard full of flowers, or take a moment under an olive tree in the East House Garden.

The Courtyard Garden


The Courtyard, located in the centre of the Main House, is the heart of the American Colony. Shaded by tall mulberry trees throughout the summer and cooled by a central fountain, this leafy outdoor area is home to the Courtyard restaurant.

The East House Garden


Adjoining the East House and one of the founders’ gardens from the early days, now an edible garden. Discover the hidden corners, linger by the fishpond or slow down in one of the other secluded seating areas. This is a functioning herb garden and from it our chef makes his personal selection daily for the kitchen.

The Palm House Garden


Adjacent to the Palm House, this glorious garden is home to the famous Summer Bar with its sumptuous barbecues and exotic cocktails. The garden has many secluded areas with seating, where you can enjoy drinks from the bar and the pleasure of a quiet chat.
