COURTESY VILLA MACHIAVELLI
Believed to be designed by Michelangelo himself, Tuscany’s Villa Machiavelli was home to the great Italian diplomatic family in the 15th century and now the 10-bedroom estate is welcoming vacationers. For some $80,000 per week, guests can stay in the Renaissance masterpiece where Niccolò Machiavelli wrote his treatise Il Principe (The Prince). In addition to modern amenities (including WiFi and a hot tub), the villa has other treasures, including a lavish wine cellar, a pool and original frescoes.
If the sky is the limit when decorating a private jet or yacht, Winch Designs will build the bespoke residence of your dreams—whether you want to practice yoga during a flight to Asia or watch movie as you cruise around the Caribbean. As CEO Aino Grapin says of his firm’s lavish interiors, “We certainly try to surprise.”
