The former home of Belgian-born industrialist Henri van de Velde, the property includes a Moderne-style house, 5 hectares (13 acres) of manicured gardens, and an outdoor theater, which hosts dramatic performances and an annual Shakespeare festival. Spend some time resting in the gardens, visit the gift shop, and drop by the site’s art gallery.
