The villa’s interior spans 400 square meters across three floors, in a seamless blend of timeless elegance and contemporary convenience, featuring a curated collection of homeware and furniture from renowned designers, architects and artists such as Fornasetti, Gae Aulenti and Roberto Minotti. The garden is accessible via a stairway, equipped with chairs and sunbeds shadowed by a century-old Lebanon Cedar tree and an Olea fragrans that scents the air with its fragrant white flowers. At the heart of the garden lies a fishpond adorned with a waterfall and a bronze statue depicting a Faun, inviting guests to immerse themselves in the splendour of their surroundings.

Worth knowing

Many local administrations now charge a “Tourist Tax” for people staying in rented accommodation and these vary from town to town. The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro. Children are sometimes included, sometimes not and these charges should be collected by the property owners.
