The original housing unit of the villa, located on the hills behind the port of Marciana Marittima, was built in 1966 by the architect Jean Serex, a pupil of Le Corbusier.
The plan, already of considerable size, was formed by cubes and parallelepipeds with a terrace roof, of a “Mediterranean rationalism” character.
The new interventions, realized in two successive stages, consist of the realization of a large living room overlooking the sea, a new swimming pool, an arbour connected to it and new rooms for guests; further changes have affected the organization of the existing living area and the guesthouse, with independent rooms, each one equipped with terrace and kitchenette.
