A haven of tranquillity and pastoral idyll the villa had been the vacation home for Valentino and Giancarlo for 25 years. The five-story, 18th-century villa boasts 11 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, several elegant and formal reception rooms, fitness suite with gym, sauna, classical pool with pool house, dining rooms, library, kitchen, study, billiard room. In the grounds are a 200-seat amphitheater and grottos with stalactites and stalagmites, wine cellars, delightful olive groves and orchards.
