The Villa was built almost 500 years ago and, despite the continuous renovations and comforts that it features nowadays, it displays all its original themed decorations, making the villa very unique – the billiard room, in front of the original Renaissance sacred Chapel, the Hunting room, or the Armors corridor, with impressive iron decorations, are just a few examples.

Although during spring and summer guests love to enjoy the majority of their snacks or proper meals outside in the garden alfresco or by the pool, the castle features an impressive dining room with a wooden table and royal chairs. All the precious table clothings, silver cutleries and fine porcelains come from the private collection of the Prince family is used for guests.
