    A quiet place, easy to be overlooked from the street - we passed twice... The garden consists of 3 parts: the front part which leads to the main flight of stairs to the villa; on the right the once secret garden with a variety of old trees and then the exuberant woods between the villa and the garden wall on the slope of torrente Ombrone. Enjoy the shady places on banks between some ruins, a bamboo grove and giant old trees!
