Stay Perched atop a Hill in the Vineyards of Tuscany…
Villa Senese was built in the 13th century, and after a meticulous restoration, still retains its original structure and architectural details: a traditional Tuscan color scheme, beamed ceilings, and a lovely internal courtyard. Set atop a hill 15 kilometers from Siena, Villa Senese offers nine bedrooms, cozy living areas with fireplaces, a billiard table, a guest house with a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious gym with a sauna, and a game room with ping-pong.
The villa is surrounded by 25 hectares of outdoor space, allowing guests to fully enjoy the breathtaking views of the surrounding vineyards and countryside. In addition to a private pool, guests also have exclusive access to a private soccer field and tennis court.
A small village with restaurants, a bar, and a post office is just a five-minute drive away, and Florence and Rome are both easily reachable by car. Villa Senese is an ideal setting for family reunions or special celebrations, where you and your loved ones can enjoy one another’s company completely free of distraction. Learn more >
…Or Nestled in a Private Estate along the French Riviera
Villa Cap Benat is located in the Domaine du Cap Bénat, an exclusive area of the Mediterranean coast between Marseilles and Nice on the French Riviera. All the villas on this estate have been built using dry stones from Bomes-les-Mimosas quarries, allowing them to seamlessly blend into the landscape.
Cap Benat’s position below a former semaphore tower allows for a unique panoramic view over one of the most beautiful coasts of the Riviera. The villa offers total privacy within its gardens – 4,000 sq. meters of lush greenery – while benefitting from the many amenities provided by the Domaine du Cap Bénat, including tennis courts, a private beach, a harbor, and a security team.
The villa itself offers 800 sq. meters of living space with seven bedrooms, a home theatre, private gym, heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and outdoor summer kitchen. With its picture-perfect setting and host of amenities, Cap Benat is perfect for a group of friends/couples or an intimate wedding ceremony. Learn more >
