This splendid 17th century villa is reached by entering through a majestic, imposing gate and passing through an alley of cypresses. One part of the villa has been converted in a comfortable holiday home. The architecture of the house, the harmonious geometry of the garden and the beautifully decorated ceilings reveal the great past of the villa founded in the 15th century by the ship-builder family Costa di Genova.
