by the renowned Medici family from Florence.
The villa is set in a garden with its own private pool and has views to
the surrounding countryside and towards the local town, which has a
variety of shops, as well as a supermarket, restaurants and bars (1km).

Villa Cedro with great style and attention to detail. The house is
