The complex comprises three buildings - the villa, the church and the barn - surrounded by, or rather immersed in, a garden adjoining a large grassland, which tapers down to become a small but interesting peat bog. Aquatic mountain environments are the underlying theme of the Visitor Centre.

in which a virtual journey through the park is developed in four stages: a collection of natural finds, a library, a small video-projection room and a room for educational activities.Openings:
- From 2 Oct. to 24 Dec. 2023: open from Monday to Friday
- From 27 Dec. 2023 to 6 Jan. 2024: open everyday. 31 Dec. and 1 Jan. closed.
