The Villa Augustus is a hotel and restaurant located on the fringe of Dordrecht city centre. The buildings are beautifully set in a lush garden that runs all the way down to the water’s edge.
The garden is just so nice and quiet. It still a bit early in the year this time around. Even so, some of the tulips are already showing off the brilliant colours.
In the interest of full disclosure, I should confess that the flowers were not the main reason for my visit. The Villa Augustus does a lovely afternoon tea.
The afternoon tea at the Villa Augustus is completely unpretentious and feels very comfortable. The staff are all very friendly and drop by regularly to top up my pot of tea. To drink I have a pot of their house blend of Early Grey tea, and it really is very good.
