In the park, there are four gardens (Italian, English, Japanese and French) and an infinite variety of plants. The owners preserve this incredible garden with a strong respect to its evolution and making sure to keep intact its beauty. The garden has been published on several garden and interior magazines.
The comfortable 3-floor villa sleeps up to 12 people and it has been recently restored by the owners.
