The beauty of this ancient dwelling lies in its history, in fact, caverns were discovered nearly 100 years ago underneath the villa facing south. During the middle ages a five story defense tower was built and remains today. Surrounding the villa was a monastery founded and maintained by the Grey Friars up until the middle of the 18th century, and in the following 200 years, the remaining buildings, churches, and chapels that had been built were used by farmers of the former owner.
