A very beautiful and romantic place and well maintained. You can take the boat for 5€ to the villa, rather than walking up there as we did. The boat was not running at the time but we went back with the boat.

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
