Palatial Residence in Rome, Italy

A hidden jewel, located in the heart of Rome near Villa Borghese, this sumptuous historic estate sets a new standard for luxury accommodation in the city.

The story of the property began right before the start of the First World War. The idea to build this architectural beauty was conceived by an engineer Adolfo Sebastiani in 1910s. He took a large part in the development of the area that would come to be later known as the elegant Quartier Sebastiani, but among all his projects this would remain the grandest and the most impressive.

Originally, he commissioned an architect Oriolo Frezzotti to build the villa, but unsatisfied with the initial project, he entrusted it to another famous architect, Arnoldo Foschini, who reimagined and completed it by 1929.

The result was a Liberty-style building heavily influenced by Greco-Roman architecture, surrounded by a classical Italian garden. Afterwards, the villa became a primary residence of a wealthy noble Italian family for several decades.

Nowadays, the villa has been carefully renovated, preserving its external and internal structure as well the historical elements of decor. Reimagined in Art Deco style, the extravagant interiors will dazzle anyone. Over 1000m2 of marble, semiprecious stone surfaces, including rare amethyst wall panels, sourced from Madagascar and Ural, and a vast art collection are hidden behind the historical 1920s facade.

The villa counts 4 luxurious suites, each designed individually by the renowned interior decorator Jacques Garcia. Bold yet opulent, the design choices display Garcia’s love for Napoleonic extravagance. Rich fabrics, marble bathrooms, delicate artworks, authentic period furniture and vintage pieces by Lalique, Baccarat, Colombostile – each suite bursts with character.

The most apt description of the villa’s art collection would be “accumulation of beautiful things”. Large and eclectic – it encompasses Greek and Roman antiques, Chinese and Japanese objets d’art, European period furniture and pieces of contemporary design.

Enjoy La Dolce Vita in the heart of Rome. Treat yourself to a moment of calm and bliss in a traditional hammam in the wellness area or take a swim in the magnificent indoor swimming pool reminiscent of the Roman baths. Enjoy the splendid Roman sunset while sipping a glass of Prosecco in a luxurious jacuzzi on the roof terrace.

Visit the iconic landmarks of the Eternal City, many of which are within the walking distance of Villa Clara. Go on a shopping spree near the Spanish Steps.
