32,500 Sqft - Rome

Property Description

Built in 1640 above the ruins of two Imperial Roman villas by Italian royalty, La Posta Vecchia is a special place. Heading the project was Prince Orsini and for centuries to follow, the Italian/Hungarian Odescalchi aristocratic family used the residence for esteemed guests and travelers en route to Rome.

Jean Paul Getty, oil tycoon, philanthropist, and world renowned art collector, restored the property as his Italian seaside hideaway and commissioned Federico Zeri to decorate it with 17th-century European furniture, tapestries and paintings.

This immaculate, luxurious, and historical property is situated on the rocks overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea, just forty minutes from the center of Rome.

La Posta Vecchia is filled with antiques, books, and paintings. The villa also serves as a magnificent museum, exhibiting the remains of its two original ancient Roman villas beneath, their mosaics, and other various artifacts.

The entire property and gated grounds provides absolute tranquility in seclusion. Facilities include an indoor heated swimming pool with sea views, direct access to its own private beach, and a beauty center.

The gardens surrounding the villa’s structures have been landscaped with close care and are ideal to wander and relax in.

The villa can also arrange for more vigorous pursuits, including tennis, horse-riding and golf. Guests are welcome to borrow a bicycle and take to the paths that run along the coast or request a boat ride to nearby coastal spots, or guided tours of the many intriguing and beautiful Etruscan ruins in the vicinity. La Posta Vecchia’s elegant dining room, much sought-after terrace tables and refined regional cuisine are no longer a secret. Chef Michele Gioia earned The Cesar a 1 star Michelin in 2008.

Complete with every modern comfort, security system and amenity, this 17th century jewel is one of the most prestigious hotels in Italy and available to rent in its entirety as a private villa.

The Cesar Dining room features refined regional cuisine. Chef Michele Gioia earned The Cesar a 1 star Michelin and the restaurant has been attracting an increasing number of diners who drive out from Rome or hop off their cruise ships at Civitavecchia for lunch or dinner.

This magnificent seafront property is situated just North of Rome, not far from the old village of Tarquinia, a lovely Medieval town with Renaissance and Neoclassic touches. It lies 4 miles (7 km) inland from the Thyrrenian Sea and just north of Civitavecchia. In the villa’s immediate surroundings is Cerveteri, an important city during Etruscan times, still standing as remaining evidence of the Necropolis, a city of tombs which is the best preserved and most notable of the Etruscan ruins. The Etruscan Necropolis at Cerveteri is a uniquely haunting archaeological site, built by this prosperous people between the seventh and the third centuries BC. The ‘city’ is still not fully excavated, but there are a remarkable number of stone tombs lining little streets, and you can easily spend several hours exploring.La Posta Vecchia is a short 40 minutes away from the center of Rome
