The villa is a gorgeous, majestic and waterfront historical mansion sitting within the natural oasis of Palo Laziale. One of its own, this ancient Roman villa is located less than an hour from the historical centre of Rome and about half an hour from Fiumicino international airport. The property, undoubtedly one of the most luxurious and important luxury historical residencies within the Rome surroundings, was erected in the seventeenth century by the noble Odescalchi family on the ruins of two Roman domus and near the homonymous Castle, now framed in the views of the splendid and unique rooms of this utmost charming residency.
The property benefits from a private beach, a helipad, an archaeological museum, a 4-hectare private park, as well as a tennis court and an indoor heated swimming pool with an adjoining Spa.
On the lower floors of the villa there are several common areas including finely furnished living rooms of different size and feature, a large dining room next to a magical terrace overlooking the sea and a heated swimming pool embellished by large and spectacular glass windows. On the upper floors there are 15 luxuriously furnished master bedrooms, equipped with all comforts and with private bathroom, some with private sitting area too and all with splendid panoramic views of the sea or the garden.
The history of this mansion is intertwined with that of the American art magnate Jean Paul Getty, who purchased it as a private home in the 1960s, dedicating himself to the meticulous work of restoring numerous priceless archaeological remains and the precious original materials and finishings of the villa. The mansion can therefore now boast a conspicuous presence of unique pieces of art and antiques, which integrate well with the mosaics, the Roman sculptures, the tapestries, the mirrors, the wooden and marble furnishings from the seventeenth century and eighteenth century, to include a wonderful collection of paintings.
This magnificent mansion also serves as a 5 star hotel when it's not lived in as an exclusive rented home, the maintenance of the rooms is unexceptionable and several concierge and additional services are available all the time throughout the year.
