Casa Verde
Casa Mazzaforte is
over 400 years old.  
The three buildings
are close enough
together for it to feel
like a hamlet.  As well
as the main garden,
to which guests have
unrestricted access,
both Casa Verde and
L'Essicatoio have their
own private gardens.
These pictures were taken at iris time, when the garden is at its
colourful best.
