The most important and well known ones are Villa Belvedere, Villa Corsini Valdisonzi, Villa Museo Calo Pepi e Villa Ott, with no doubt one of the most beautiful one.

Villa Ott was built by the architect Silvestro Donati in the seventeenth century, instead of the Mecherini noble families.

The villa has not a regular shape. The main façade looks at the hamlet of Tripalle and, in the past it was preciously painted decorated.

The villa has 3 differents levels and there are two entrances located on the on the two ailes of the villa, whilst in the middle there is the family crest.

The villa has been restored due to the damages suffered during the second world war, when the frecoes of Domenico Tempesti and Gabrielli went lost.

The villa has also the Saint Isidtro and della Madonna of the heart, completely rebuilt in 1768 over the ruins of an old church.

In front of the Chapel there is the farm with the little tower in neo-medieval style in 1881, built by the Ott fanily.

The park is done by non regular grasses and timber trees, according to the English trends, whilst the internal area consists in an Italian garden.
