It comprises a massive body with an avant-corps at right angles, and being the only example among the Lucchese villas, has an irregular internal courtyard.
The nymphaeum in the park, considered the oldest and most beautiful, belonged to the villa. It comprises two environments. The external one is a structure with a squared plan which develops over two floors and has large windows on the walls. On the ground floor, the arches at the entrance are supported with pillars with tufo ashlars, and the entire construction exploits decorative effects produced by the use of different materials i.e. smooth stone, tufo, black and white pebbles. The geometric decoration of mosaics in black and white pebbles is also present in the internal walls of this first environment. The grotto is circular in shape and has niches. Its walls are decorated with a combination of rough tufo, stalactites, regular geometric decoration, grotesque masks and noteworthy statues.
