33. La Dolce Vita in Tuscany

casa 1

This lot benefits: Emerald Coast Autism Center 

The rolling hills of Tuscany beg for indulgence and adventure — and the enchanting luxury hideaway of Casali di Casole is your premier base camp. Dating back to the year 998, Tuscany’s Casali di Casole has a rich and storied history. Not only has it hosted everyone from European aristocracy to Hollywood luminaries over the centuries, but it has also undergone a far-more-recent authentic restoration. 

Your Italian villa for the week of May 18-25, 2025, is the historic Villa Monte Rotondo, a 5,800 square-foot restored farmhouse. This villa was designed to reflect the traditional style of the region, boasting genuine Italian furnishings, a large private pool, and expansive living spaces. For the ultimate privacy, bedrooms are in three separate buildings accessible via private entries — two on the second level of the main house and one in each of the annexes. All four bedrooms provide king beds with ensuite bathrooms. Outside, observe the dazzling view from your private, glass-tiled, infinity-edge pool or from the chairs on the grass. Learn to bake authentic Italian pizza in the traditional forno and dine al fresco on the patio. Inside, charming touches like hand-carved marble sinks, exposed stone, vaulted ceilings, and a traditional Tuscan fireplace ensure that you experience ultimate comfort and the true flavor of Tuscany. 

To enhance your stay, your villa concierge will arrange tastings at the prestigious wineries of Ornellaia and Sassicaia. La dolce vita, indeed!
