I visited this house with my wife. The rooms and furniture are beautifully set out and the guides are very helpful. You can also sit in the garden and look at the tile museum. Well worth 3 euros.

This is an interesting museum with different exhibitions: ceramic tiles, furniture and other household and artistic items on display. They also have a small but nice garden inside. You can spend 2 hours here if you visit the museum.
