The whole area is peppered with impressive villas in beautiful gardens. Villa Grabau is one of the smaller ones still inhabited by the owners. Worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Garden has being undergoing some restoration and has some interesting features. Guided tour of the villa,s main rooms was very interesting: mostly in Italian but enough in English to allow us to follow the story.

Good gardens, 5 euros per person. Lovely to sit by the lily pond and listen to the frogs. Great view of the Villa and garden from there. A nice fresh walk through the wooded areas, well watered lawns. Worth a visit.
