    Description:
    The Mountain Villa of Secluded Beauty (also referred to as the Mountain Villa with Embracing Beauty) is located inside the Suzhou Embroidery Museum. In 1997 it  was, along with other classical Suzhou gardens, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 2,180 m2 garden is composed along a linear axis with three main elements: a grotto called Autumn Hill, the Flying Snow Pool which is fed by a waterfall called Flying Snow (Feixue) Spring, and the main hall. The rock work in this garden is a showcase of the wide variety of techniques and special effects used in Chinese gardens. It is also interesting to note that this garden is a miniature re-creation of the five major mountains of China and shows a mastery of the Chinese art of creating a sense of vast space in a small area.

    景点介绍
    环秀山庄占地不大,但其内湖石假山为中国之最。园景以山为主,池水辅之,建筑不多。园虽小,却极有气势。该园园内湖石假山为中国之最,占地仅半亩,而峭壁、峰峦、洞壑、涧谷、平台、磴道等山中之物,应有尽有,极富变化。池东主山,池北次山,气势连绵,浑成一片,恰似山脉贯通,突然断为悬崖。而于磴道与涧流相会处,仰望是一线青天,俯瞰有几曲清流;壮哉美哉,恰如置身于万山之中,全山处理细致,贴近自然,一石一缝,交代妥贴,可远观亦可近赏,无怪有“别开生面、独步江南”之誉。
