Additional Information about the Print

The Villa Ariadne was built by Sir Arthur Evans at Knossos after his discovery of the Minoan palace, when the site was his own property. It subsequently became owned by the Greek government but continues to be used as a base for visiting scholars from the British School at Athens and other similar institutions.

During the Second World War the German General Karl Kreipe was living there when he was kidnapped by Patrick Leigh Fermour.

The garden remains as planted by Arthur Evans, the only existing Edwardian Greek garden.
