This manor house was built in 1727 at the edge of a large agricultural estate. In the 1800's other buildings were added for the stables and the living quarters of service personnel. The property was long held by the Delfini family, one of the most important families of the area.
The villa, with its large frescoed loggia has been restored to its ancient splendour, although it no longer has its original XVIII century furnishings.
The villa houses a 5 hectare botanical park that reproduces native plants of the region (70 species of shrubs and trees including centuries-old oaks, maples, etc.).
