Of the various areas in the villa, which preserve a number of casts of wooden door and window frames, those most particularly worthy of note are: a spacious colonnade that closes off the open-air courtyard; a room used as a storehouse and temporary kitchen; the torcularium with the remains of the wooden press and the holes and shafts used to anchor it to the soil, the pressing vat and the container for collecting the must; the triclinium, whose walls are decorated with paintings attributed to the transition phase between the 3rd and the 4th style; and the kitchen, which was not in use at the time of the eruption, with an oven and hearth.
