Villa Guicciardini

Going over the Ninfea you have a view of the front facade of the Villa, with its gravel paths, and a part of the Italian labyrinth made with laurel plants.

Continuing in the direction of the facade you will find an ancient stone fountain
with circular tank embellished with water lily plants


Not far from the Italian garden there is a rectangular rose garden containing various species of multicolored roses, flourishing from April to November, and bordered by laurel plants.

The arrangement and type of roses chosen reflect the original pattern, thus recreating the shape and colors of the ancient rose garden.

Giardino all'Italiana

The Italian garden is characterized by drawings
geometrical formed by boxwood flowerbeds repeated symmetrically.

At the center of the design there is a geometric water tank crossed by a wooden bridge, and inside this comes the flow of water from the source.

The original garden was commissioned by the Count
Guicciardini to the architect Pietro Berti in 890.

Serra per l'Aloe

The greenhouse, a corner immersed in the garden of the Villa and adjacent to the border of aromatic plants, which houses inside a small collection of Aloe plants and fragrant citrus fruits, such as lemons, grapefruits and mandarins, coming from Sicily.

Macchia del Bambù

In the outermost part of the park, bordering the city walls and the Migliana stream, we find this very suggestive bamboo grove; its stems carry long, fine and mobile leaves at the end and when a breeze passes they produce
very pleasant and relaxing sounds

Agrumeto e piante aromatiche

In the lower part of the margin, which once fed the Villa's oil mill, there are various citrus plants in pots and a selection of aromatic plants such as sage, rosemary and lavender, which give, during their flowering, an explosion of perfumes and colors.

Viale d'ingresso

The avenue once connected the
farm with the adjoining village of the furnace, climbing over the Migliana stream with a stone bridge.

Over the years its layout was slightly curved to connect with the new one
main entrance gate.


The Nymphaeum is a natural cave with rocky caves from which jets of spring water emerge which slide on the rock until they are collected from the small lake below.

It has two circular ramps made of rock stones, coming from the waterways of  Calvana, where in the past the pedestrian access to the Villa corresponded to the center.

Pergolato dell'Uva Fragola

The pergola, which connects the Italian garden and the lemon grove area, is adorned with vine branches and climbing roses, so that you can enjoy its flowering all year round, in spring with the flowers of roses and in autumn with the coloring of the leaves in shades of red and orange.

During the harvest period the vaults are prone to bunches of strawberry grapes thus giving off a sweet and intense aroma.

Bersò dei Glicini e delle Rose

In the Villa, precisely in front of the facade, we find a Bersò in wood and wrought iron entirely covered with wisteria and climbing roses.

Thanks to the refinement of the colors and scents of these flowers, the structure acquires a romantic charm.

La Grande Pergola

The Grande Pergola is located on the side of the Villa, adjacent to the Italian garden, and consists of a solid structure adorned with climbing wisteria branches and finished with a white fabric, which gives shade in the hottest months of the year .
