The villa is situated near to the Fucecchio Marshes, a humid area rich in fauna. It was built in 1556 by Cosimo I as a fortified hunting lodge. The building, which has a double ramp in brick leading up to the entrance, is attributed to the architect Buontalenti.
Inside the villa are Medici portraits and furniture of various periods and provenance. The natural environment of the villa is illustrated by maps and relief models.
On the first floor is the Historical Hunting and Territorial Museum, which contains a collection of firearms, mostly for hunting and shooting, of the 17th-19th centuries.
