Villa Volpi, a neo-classical palazzo overlooking the Mediterranean that’s featured in Italian luxury label Tod’s new ad campaign, has been listed for sale at $33 million.
The amazing property, luxe lifestyle setting of attractive people and classic Ferraris in the alluring ads, sits on 26 acres including a private beach. The estate is the creation of Countess Nathalie Volpi di Misurata, an aristocrat with a reputation for impeccable taste and refined elegance who enlisted celebrated Milanese architect Tomaso Buzzi to build the palazzo in 1960.
Villa Volpi’s seven lavish bedrooms and entertaining spaces have played host to many notable guests over the years, from celebrities to royalty, society and international dignitaries. Additional buildings on the estate include a three-bedroom guest house, a two-bedroom cottage and stables.
“This home fosters an incredibly peaceful and glamorous way of life,” notes Clarice Pecori Giraldi of Christie’s International Real Estate, “bringing together a unique location in Italy – where waterfront properties of this scale are extremely rare – with the incredible sophistication of classical architecture.”
