The Villa is the heart of Il Palagio. And has to be seen to be believed. It perches elegantly at the top of a long steep drive, overlooking the distant Tuscan hills and the undulating countryside. Offering an extraordinary panorama of vineyards, olive groves, cypress and oak forests as well as a view of the lush Appenines in the distance. Each unique room looks out at a view that is both breathtaking and serene. And sunsets that light the sky on fire.

As with the rest of the estate, the Villa Il Palagio has been beautifully and meticulously restored. Providing an oasis of tranquility. With a cool loggia to relax on during long hot Tuscan days, a tennis court, dining areas, a serene lake, nearby stables and countless beautiful places for you to explore, enjoy and create memories that will last a lifetime.

The villa is also home to the main pool and lounging area. Where Sting and his family have enjoyed countless warm days and sultry Italian nights. It is the perfect venue for entertaining, large gatherings, or for simply relaxing under the Tuscan sun.

In the late 1700s the Martelli family purchased the property, then in 1819 they sold to the Countess Carlotta Barbolani of Montauto, the widow of the Duke of San Clemente. It remained in this family’s hands for some 150 years. At the beginning of the twentieth century Duke Simone Vincenzo Velluti Zati di San Clemente commissioned several new buildings including a grain store, oil mill and wine production area. When Sting and Trudie first came across the estate in 1999, it had by then fallen into a state of some disrepair, but they have since restored it to its former glory and beyond.

Master Suite
This is where Trudie and Sting stay at Il Palagio. The master suite of the main villa and a space like no other. It is rarely made available for rent. But if you have the chance, this is a rare peek into the lives of Trudie and Sting, and a singular experience.
Estate Pool
The main pool at the villa is special. Looking out on what feels like all of Tuscany. It is one of the more peaceful places on the estate to wile away a sunny, summer day. Or an ideal location for virtually any event or special occasion one can imagine. It is also a personal favourite for Trudie, Sting, and the rest of the family.
Formal Fountain
When a stunning fountain that once belonged to Sophia Loren was sourced, Il Palagio was surely the perfect home for this gorgeous find, the epitome of Italian glamour.
This may be the most spectacular place on earth to play a game of chess. The oversized chess set, reminiscent of that played by kings in their courts, sits just a few feet from the main villa pool. No matter how well or poorly you play, you truly can’t lose.
The grounds at Il Palagio are also home to some outstanding art and sculptures. Some modern. Some classical. But all interesting. They are one more aspect of Il Palagio that makes Il Palagio well, Il Palagio.
