The space
Seven bedroom historic luxury villa with swimming pool, extensive gardens in sight of Montepulciano on Tuscany/Umbria border. Tasteful classic interiors with alfresco cooking, dining & lounge areas create a relaxing ambiance amid spectacular views.

Villa L'Antica Posta is a splendidly restored 16th century villa that sits on a hilltop on the Tuscan-Umbrian border in sight of Montepulciano. The Montepulciano area in which the estate is located is the ideal base for touring the vineyards and is rich with culture & history.

The property is a listed building, part of the Contea di Laviano estate, with a notable history, being formerly owned by the family of Napoleon Bonaparte and inhabited by his niece Princess Maria Alessandra Bonaparte.


The villa offers extreme comfort, curated with artistic touches, a colourful blend of contemporary furniture and antiques, and filled with luxury amenities such as a cinema room, ecological underfloor cooling / heating, a large jacuzzi bath, a steam shower, a gym, an alfresco cooking area with large pizza oven and built in barbecue and a very well equipped and spacious cook's kitchen. Sit back and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding countryside in the shady covered outdoor lounge and dining area that adjoin the house to the swimming pool. The fan-shaped pool is set in an impeccably maintained lawn, with endless views of a gently rolling landscape.

There is something to please everyone in the surrounding area: Medieval hilltop villages, ancient castles and Renaissance churches to explore; vineyards, olive groves and fine cuisine to discover; golf courses and tennis courts and even horse riding in the nearby village; sailing, windsurfing and fishing on Lake Trasimeno. Both Florence and Rome are viable day trips and Perugia with its famous Jazz Festival is just 40 minutes away

Having been bought up in England, lived and worked in South Africa and travelled extensively my family and I bought Villa L'Antica Posta, in 1998 and renovated it to it's current splendour. The decor reflects my personal taste as an interior designer and compliments the history and location of this unique villa. The estate is part of a group of listed buildings that make up the Contea di Laviano. It has a rich history that dates back to the XVI century. In the 1800's Napoleon Bonaparte's niece, the Princes Maria Alessandra married into the ruling family and lived for a while in L'Antica Posta whilst her neighbouring Napoleonic Villa was built. Though new to Airbnb in 2015, the villa has been available as a luxury summer rental for the last decade through Tuscany Now and has been appreciated by many international travellers seeking the Dolce Vita. If you too wish to experience the joy of being immersed in the rich Tuscan countryside and sharing the delights it has to offer, I promise that you will not be disappointed.
