Such villas were widely spread around the hills surrounding Lucca, notably modifying the landscape. The edifice is built on a hillside and therefore has three floors facing downhill and two facing uphill given the sloping of the land. There is a portico with five arches on the façade facing uphill, forming an area linking the building to the garden. This is a very important and frequent characteristic of the Lucchese villas. The garden is very interesting for its variety of essences and for their architectonic disposition. There is also a little nymphaeum in the garden. An Italian style garden, comprising 16 flower beds with low geometric hedge borders has been planted recently.
