Villa Gamberaia classic Tuscan villa near Florence, Italy
From the moment you pass the gate, with its sentinel cypresses, the impression is one of such perfect loveliness that at last, by force of contrast, the mind goes back to strong Caprarola or tragic Este, only to turn once more to bathe in the perfection of the Tuscan villa. C. Latham, The Gardens of Italy.
