With an interactive village 'walk through', you can almost reach out and touch. 

Immerse yourself in our beautiful village by taking a ‘walk through’ with our virtual tours. Stroll through the lovely gardens, explore our village amenities, and step into a beautiful townhouse or serviced apartment. You can navigate your way through each featured room or area of the village and really get a feel for the space, all in the comfort of your own home. It’s a great way to obtain a more intricate view before you make a visit to the village.

‘Walk through’ by using your mouse (on a laptop) or fingertips (on a mobile device). The menu at top left shows different areas of the village for easy navigation.
