Great place off the beaten track. Quality impressionist paintings and interesting exhibition with historic photographs. Villa and park (perfect for picnic) are top notch.

This former villa of the local manufacturer Sidney Brown presents now for me the most beautiful collection of French impressionist painters. I recommend summer for a visit to take a picknick in the beaztiful gardens...

There was a very nice collection of work from the likes of Renoir and Cézanne but the museum is very small. It took me less than 30 minutes to see the whole place.
