Experience the beauty and magic of three gardens to be discovered; the magic of the Scarzuola, the classicism of Villa Paolina, and the elegance of the park of Villa Cahen.

In the small hamlet of Montegiove in the municipality of Montegabbione, the Buzziana city is an unusual and fascinating place, a 1956 architectural work by the Milanese architect Tommaso Buzzi with the aim of recreating an “ideal city” in which culture and nature unite in harmony…

In the territory of the Selva di Meana, Villa Cahen represents a particular place that arouses emotions and transports over time. A time that brings us back to the glories and elegance, sometimes extravagant, of a classic rich family (the Cahen d’Anversa) at the end of 19th and early 20th century. In addition to the majestic villa, the most striking are the four different gardens that surround it and the old greenhouses.

In Porano is Villa Paolina, a classic noble residence with Italian garden and park that are often places for events and exhibitions.
