An exquisite original and beautiful 17thcentury Villa set amidst fragrant fields and olives groves, in an elevated position overlooking exceptional and spectacular panoramic countryside near to the ancient Etruscan hilltown of Volterra.

The elegant and impressive facade of this most attractive Villa perfectly reflects the historical era in which the eminent Florentine architect Gherardo Silvani first conceived and created the design.

The exterior render is painted in a warm ochre colour and the interiors are light and spacious, with vaulted ceilings and large windows from which the exceptional views and landscaped gardens can be appreciated.

Reaching views to the west above a delightful patchwork of fields, olives and vines provide the perfect backdrop for glorious Tuscan sunsets. Adjacent to the main residence there are several substantial and useful period outbuildings which provide additional accommodation suitable for a number of different purposes. These buildings are charmingly positioned, mainly grouped around the courtyard of the main Villa and are restored and habitable, and could provide either staff or guest accommodation.

Over the centuries this beautiful property has served as an elegant and refined country residence for noblemen and members of the aristocracy, in particular, the Inghirami family who first commissioned the construction of the estate in the 1600’s. Over the years the Villa has hosted many important dignitaries, including Napoleon who stayed there during the time he spent in Italy. During the mid twentieth century, the famous film director Luchino Visconti , discovered the Villa while searching in the area for film locations. This lovely estate charmed and seduced his equally famous producer Franco Cristaldi, who eventually bought the property in the 1960’s, during his marriage to the actress Claudia Cardinale.
