Top 10 luxury villas in Italy

Italy has been the 5th most visited country in the world for a number of years, attracting approximately 60 million tourists each year. Whilst, of course, visitor numbers will look very different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we fully expect Italy to be back in the top five of most visited countries in the world once travel is possible again. After all, what’s not to love about Italy? The country has a wealth of incredible sights to see and is rich in culture, boasting 55 UNESCO world heritage sites. Its history is long and fascinating and the Italian people are warm and welcoming. It can boast long stretches of incredible coastline as well as the most beautiful inland scenery. Not to mention the fantastic cuisine…. In short, the list of reasons to love Italy is endless.

If you’re looking to treat yourself when you’re ready to travel to Italy again, then take a look at our top 10 luxury villas in Italy so that you can explore Italy in style.

  1. Villa Castellaccio, Lake Maggiore, Italian Lakes

Villa Castellaccio is a stunning villa in the Italian Lakes situated in the attractive village of Brezzo di Bedero on Lake Maggiore. So picture-perfect that it’s often compared to a dolls house, the villa enjoys a commanding hilltop position which means guests are treated to 360 degree views, over the lake and mountains beyond in one direction and over the village rooftops in the other. Guests will find it hard to tear themselves away from the private swimming pool and immaculately presented private gardens which stretch across several acres. But if you do wish to use it as a base to explore, then it’s just a short drive to the lakeside where you can catch a boat to all the other towns and villages on Lake Maggiore.

Sleeps: Up to 11 guests

Prices from 80 euros per person per night

2. Villa Pinoni, Lucca, Tuscany

We love this luxury villa in Tuscany. Arguably more reminiscent of a property in Provence rather than Tuscany with its light grey shutters and borders of scented lavender, it oozes style, character and charm from every room. The gardens are laid out on several terraces and are absolutely delightful whilst the garden room is the perfect spot to practice yoga or to paint. We challenge anyone not to fall in love with this incredible home. In short, it’s simply stunning.
