Originally belonging to Antoine de Paule, who extended it regularly during his lifetime to accommodate his regular stream of guests, this luxurious villa became more lavish with each renovation and was used as a country retreat by several Grandmasters over the next 200 years, before becoming the official residence of the governor-general under the British Empire.

Of course, no tour of the palace is complete without a stroll around its citrus studded gardens, brimming with lush verdure and adorned by decorative fountains, gazebos, and a network of geometrically planned pathways.

Truly delightful both outside and in, a tour of this splendid palace is certainly not to be missed!
