AAA Editor Notes

Abkhazi Garden is e. at 1964 Fairfield Rd. at Shotbolt Rd. This small, residential garden was created and nurtured by an Englishwoman and an exiled Georgian prince. The two met in Paris in the 1920s, spent time in separate World War II internment camps, reunited after the war, married and settled in Victoria. Prince Nicholas and Princess Peggy Abkhazi built their home and developed this garden along rocky slopes meticulously planted with rhododendrons, Garry oaks and Japanese maples. The Abkhazis' home now houses The Teahouse, open for lunch and late afternoon tea. Food is available.
