Hotel can tell you where to get the ferry. The water taxi ran every 15 minutes when we were there. Cost 5€ per person. It is a 5 minute walk to taxi stand from ferry terminal. You can also walk to the villa but going is all up hill. Suggest taking the taxi going and if you have the time walk back to see different views. When you get to the villa you can buy a ticket to tour inside the buildings
