Cortona. The villa, reached through a street lined with geometric hedges, stands out for its compact volume by XVIII century characters and the staircase with two flights. Important and scenic garden also enriched by a monumental nymphaeum. The complex is part of that landscape, orderly and planned, typical of the enlightened culture of Cortona of the '700, where nothing is left to chance. Along the avenue of the park there is a pool of about eighty meters long fed by spring water.
The villa is a three-storey building on a rectangular plan and is distinguished by the formal compactness. The double staircase with a well in front, presents monumental baroque characters. The interior is organized into 28 rooms recently renovated while maintaining the eighteenth-century elements such as the views trompe l'oile and the marble fireplaces that adorn the rooms.
The ground floor of the building has been used, as before as the reception of service areas such as the kitchen, bathrooms cellar, laundry etc., plus there is a large entrance hall and a dining room. The rooms, all recently renovated, feature wooden ceilings with exposed beams and terracotta floors. The monumental staircase leads to the first floor (also accessible from the internal service staircase), the spacious living room is embellished with a coffered ceiling and marble fireplace; adjacent to this there is a hall painted with hunting scenes and features a floor in the original shot. At the same floor there are three bedrooms and their respective bathrooms. The third floor has three large bedrooms with their own bathrooms as well as a library and a sitting room. All the main rooms have wooden walls and ceilings finely decorated with coffer. From the second floor is accessed via the internal staircase to the attic.
On the ground floor of the villa there is a small chapel with a vaulted ceiling with exquisite frescoes.
The ex-horse stable consists of two buildings with two floors: the ground floor are for the use of the local garage and a cellar; on the first floor we find a large lounge with stone fireplace, a bathroom and a large kitchen which also has a stone fireplace. On the side of the building a large wooden shed was built with fireplace and pizza oven, within which were embedded the oak trees.

Adjoining the villa is an additional building that connects the villa to the nymphaeum: it is a long and narrow room, born as an exhibition hall of vintage cars and today used as a reception room for celebrations. The numerous windows with stunning views of the lush garden, allow you to intensively illuminate the room.
The luxury villa has a large land of 14 hectares partly used as a park, olive groves and woods.
The garden includes several parts: the driveway with large topiaries of cypress, the garden of fruits in front of the limonaia, the ragnaia of oaks, the garden of flowers and the tree-lined meadow with large plane tree and the ancient pines. In the garden stand out numerous ornamental elements, the most important, from the historical and artistic point of view, is the eighteenth-century Nymphaeum with rococò decorations.
