    I’d like to see the kitchens, the bathrooms, and the living quarters for my help. How far away would I be from George & Amal?

    Amazing! I love the architecture and landscape, but some of those people need to go home.

    The gardens remind me of certain moments in the gardens at Versailles.

  10. I spent some time in Lucca and visited this spectacular property. It is so romantic and beautiful. At the time, the gardens were less manicured than most and that only lent a hint of mystery to the estate. I also recall that Napoleon, Einstein, and Henry Kissinger were also guests of this magical villa.

    This part of Tuscany is so lovely. Easy to drive around in, and Lucca is just beautiful.

    And not too too far from the Mediterranean. The first clue were the banana plants in the garden.
    It’s hard to imagine the work and craftsmanship that went into building this all done by hand of course. It’s a stunning example of an Italian villa with all the bells and whistles including the garden. I’m so grateful it’s been maintained so beautifully throughout the centuries.

    I’d say I’m speechless, but I talk too much!
    This one! I mean- actually living in a “home” like this!?
    I’m with whomever left the comments about Heaven, the murals, and l Love the dog fountain, too!
    16th Century.
    I feel like one of those “ka-pow” mind-blowing-explosion-type emojis best emulates how I feel about this one!

    Something didn’t seem right here–16th century? That would make this architect a contemporary of Andrea Palladio, and every bit as good, which seemed unlikely. The answer to the ”mystery” seems to be that architect Muzio Oddi rebuilt the house in 1634, a couple of generations after Palladio, incorporating a good deal of Palladio’s sensibility, and there was a second makeover in the 18th century. The makeovers explain my initial reaction, which was that this was a revival building of the 19th century, an embellished Palladian house.

      In much of the sixteenth century that region in Italy saw a great rise in population, wealth, and upper middle class aristocracy. Renovations in Venetian style and Palladio was a popular homage to a previous time. All across Italy palazzos were renovated or built and many still remain. This is a beautiful example, but I can think of dozens of comparable palazzos for sale today at half the price. I’m struggling to understand why, except it is a price for an overseas buyer.
