It's a really nice view arriving from the road along the channel, reflecting in the water. Short pleasent walk after parking along the river. The lady at the shop, selling the tickets, seems completely busy at the phone, or not visible at all, difficult to...More

I was surprised by the less than favorable reviews as we loved this villa. It has retained its support buildings and its setting on the canal and the interiors are simple and beautiful. The grounds are not in pristine condition but i cannot imagine the...More
