ABKHAZI GARDEN, Victoria BC, near the Oak Bay Border

ABKHAZI GARDEN, Victoria BC, near the Oak Bay Border


Victoria BC, Abkhazi GardenAbkhazi Garden,  is a formally privately owned residence and property along Fairfield rd. in Fairfield Victoria BC, Near the Oak Bay border.

Tucked away at #1964 is one of those tranquil and amazing personal interpretations and integration of nature, design, beauty and function.

Bought in 1946 by Peggy (not yet) Abkhazi, work was started first to design and construct the gardens we see today,  a small summer house was next, and eventually in 1947 the main house was constructed to complement the garden and property.

Currently the House if used for a lovely small lunch and tea room restaurant, with excellent kitchen and wonderful selection of specialty tees. Other services at the house include a very well stocked small gift store and exhibits about the history of the garden and its past and present owners, The Land Conservancy of BC. For a visit to the Abkhazi Garden Website, click here.

Our Tour took a couple of hours, and we really enjoyed our first visit, and we will be back every season to enjoy the many amazing plants, the colours and tranquility.

We had a lovely lunch and had a quick visit in the gift shop, all in all a very peaceful, quiet and relaxing few hours right in town, worthy of your time and enjoyment, we are positive that you will not be disappointed.

We have written an earlier article about The Land Conservancy of BC, for some additional information about their Pfanntastic Work to protect and preserve natural and or important properties all over BC, and around Greater Victoria, which we hope you will alos check out


Greater Victoria is a Pfanntastic Place to Call Home, and Abkhazi Garden in Victoria is just one more reason to make sure you come and visit our little corner of Paradise soon
We just might be a little biased about Victoria and it's Natural Beauty, so please let us know what you think.......

Peter and Linda, reminds me of some of the gardens at the RBG in Burlington... These gardens can be appreciated at different times of the day and in different seasons.

Peter and Linda, that's beautiful! Makes me want to go to Cheekwood, our botanical garden!

Hi Connie,

This time in the year here in Victoria is amazing as long as it is dry, most of our trees are evergreens, but the Gary Oak Tree stands (protected) are all turning  and with the contrast of the colours, gives the landscape just a totally different look and feel.

What a beautiful place. In my former life I was a princess, then a queen and I live in a place much like this. I miss that.

Peter and Linda - This looks like a wonderful place to visit. It reminds me of Callaway Gardens in GA. which also is a beautiful place. I like Sussie's comments :)

Hi Kathy,

It was our first time in the Abkhazi garden, and we just loved it, so beautiful and peaceful right in town. Everybody hears about Butchard Gardens, an they are amazing, Abkhazi is special because it is so intimate and almost romantic. You can feel and sense the love and passion in its design and pressence.

Your Royal Highness Sussie,
