On prior request it is possible to bring dogs on the tour, there is a small supplement of € 3. There are large Maremmano sheepdog on the island, so if your dog is aggressive or agitated towards other dogs it would be wiser not to. Dogs must be kept on their leads at all times and are not allowed inside the house, unless they are small enough to be carried. 

Guests are welcoming to takes photographs and film during the tour, everywhere except the rooms inside the house. 

During the tour there are three sets of stairs, two in the gardens connecting the terraces and one inside the villa. The tour moves at a slow pace so this shouldn't be a problem for guests who have trouble walking. If we are informed in time of such requirements, we can organise a golf cart to accompany guests who cannot manage the stairs to the refreshments area. This does mean that some of the gardens will not be visited (but they can be viewed from above from the terrace of the villa).There are wheelchair accessible bathrooms. The tour is not suitable for anyone in heavy duty motorized wheelchairs, due to difficulties accessing the boat and transporting the wheelchair on the island. 

 

 


THE GUIDED TOURS ARE CARRIED OUT IN ENGLISH, ITALIAN AND GERMAN.

Guided tours for groups

From the end of March until  mid October 2020 it is possible to book private tours for groups. 

Guided tours for groups of at least 20 people can be organised outside of the programmed guided tours. We will organise a private boat transfer and, of course, guided tour of the island. The date and time of the visit is flexible, depending on the groups timetable and our availability. We are closed on Mondays, and in high season most Saturday afternoons are occupied by weddings. 

The tour lasts about 1 hour and 45 minutes and takes you through magnificent English and Italian gardens, as well as some rooms inside the neo-gothic Venetian style villa.

It is not permitted to takes photographs inside the villa itself, but guests are more than welcome to take photographs of the gardens and exterior. 

There are 3 sets of stairs during the tour. Any disabled persons can be accompanied to the refreshments area with a golf cart, should they not be able to climb stairs. This is only possible upon prior booking and arrangement. Unfortunately in this case two terraces of the garden will not be visitable for these guests, although they can be admred from above. We kindly ask you to inform us of any special requirements beforehand. 

THE GUIDED TOUR CAN BE BOOKED IN ENGLISH, ITALIAN, GERMAN, OR FRENCH
