The swimming pool in the garden area is exclusively for the use of the inmates, with privacy ensured. The garden is without doubt the centre of attraction by many tourists. The whole of the villa’s garden actuates the Italian Baroque style. With a history dating back to the 14th century, the villa is no wonder a history in itself. The villa owner who purchased the property in the 15th century got its name changed from Matteo di Domenico to Gamberelli. History also goes on to say that the villa passed down the hands of many noble men of the age including of Marquis Capponi, Princess Ghykha, sister of the Queen of Serbia. The initial credit of the villa goes to Zanopi Lapi who took trouble designing both the villa and its chapel. These lovely and magical gardens were greatly transformed by the Princess Giovanna Ghika in the 19th century. It is she who gave the gardens a formal and axial space, concluding in a cypress arcade. Further to Princess Ghika, Mathilda Ledyard Cass who purchased the property in the early 20th century added to the topiary in the gardens. The Second World War played a great havoc in the look of the villa, which was rebuilt again by Marcello Marchi in 1954. Since then the villa remains under the ownership by descendants of the Marchi family, who continue to retain the original charm of this Italian villa.
