Villa Cetinale


A Fairy Tale Castle in Tuscany

A stay at the palatial Villa Cetinale is like a step back in time to the Renaissance era, but with all the luxuries of living in the 21st century. Jaw-dropping grounds of oak groves, lemon trees, immaculately tended gardens, a swimming pool and a tennis court are but a few of the head-turning features before you even step inside.

A cypress-lined lane guides the way to the Roman Baroque mansion’s front doors where inside the splendour doesn’t cease. You’ll be greeted by vaulted ceilings, tiled stone floors, frescoed walls, and an imposing fireplace as well as by your private chef, waiter, and housekeeper who are at your disposal during your stay.

Favourite Feature Cetinale's gardens are definitely a highlight. The beautiful swimming pool and games room make it a hit for the kids as well!

This was the best trip I could have hoped for. I'm so grateful to have been in Tuscany with B&R—many thanks to the amazing people who worked so hard to make it happen.

How to Get There

Your trip will likely begin in Florence. Most transatlantic flights to Italy fly into either Milan or Rome, and Florence is readily accessible from either city.

By Plane

There are daily flights from Rome or Milan to Florence’s Peretola Airport. Peretola is about 20 minutes from the centre of town (and the train station) by taxi.

By Train

You may also fly into Pisa and take a train to Florence, which takes about an hour. You would get from the Pisa airport to the train station using the high-speed PisaMover. Then, board the train to Florence (combined tickets for both the PisaMover and train to Florence are available at the airport Arrivals hall).

Activities & Amenities

In addition to the villa’s stunning gardens, Cetinale also offers the services of a local chef who is ready to immerse you in the art of incredible Tuscan cuisine. The games room with ping pong and foosball tables make it a win for the kids, too.
