The property, is situated in the Giardino Del Calandrino, is named after a French family who owned the plot during the Middle Ages.  The building is a fine example of an elegant country residence built in the early nineteenth century, probably by the Cav.  Vincenzo De Stefani Falco “a refined connoisseur of architecture and painting”.   The symmetry of the walls plan and the main façade show the special care of the execution and the project.

Situated in a prosperous countryside, in the past it was the favourite destination for Sunday walks and visiting, thanks to the characteristics of the healthy locations and the beautiful landscape.
Walking down to the path, on the left side of the Villa, and going along the citrus plantations, guests will immediately see the trimmed building with a precious gazebo that has a series of stone seats within its perimeter, a place where people used to pleasantly spend their time.  The perfectly square gazebo is made up of three round symmetrical arches, decorated with stucco bas-reliefs.

From this spot guests can enjoy the view with the stone fountain which is partially buried on one side and supported by buttresses with volutes on the other side.  A mermaid sculpture emerges from the centre all painted in red.
When walking down the garden, the path turns into a promenade of more than sixty metres, bordered by a double row of brick pillars surmounted by some iron arches that once supported a beautiful pergola.
The avenue runs along the “the five tangerine trees garden” that overshadow a small spot surrounded by stone and sandstone benches of which affects the shape of the back consisting of a series of stone arches.
