Originally designed and built in the 1950s on unexplored Coachella Valley land, a renowned Italian Physicist created this authentic elegant Italian country Villa and Ranch. Janet Gaynor, the Ducati family and Princess Grace of Monaco are among the many celebrities, royalty, dignitaries and visionaries whom have graced this Estate throughout decades past. We cordially invite you to experience the enchantment of this landmark’s exquisite, newly completed Villa restoration. Sitting at third story height, atop a one acre dune - nestled in the center of its olive orchard, the main Villa is walled with tall panoramic glass sliders opening to 360° unencumbered views over the surrounding trees, of the Coachella Valley mountains, Polo Grounds to the east and resplendent sunrise, and sunsets. The interior is designed with custom imported modern furniture highlighted by an exquisite collection of familial antiquities.
Baths feature Toto fixtures and original roman style terrazzo shower/baths for two fitted with waterfalls, spa jets and rain showers. Built and imported from Italy are the enclosed fully equipped kitchen, walk-in closets, cabinetry throughout, as well as bed and bath linens. A direct closed satellite system allows guests Wifi both in and out of doors. Circular sunken Bbq is provisioned with a Caliber grill, refrigerator and freezer drawers, beverage center, ice maker and hot/cold sink. State of the art amenities include hidden televisions, seven indoor/outdoor zones of radio, turntable and airplay sound, A/C, heated pool, spa for 10, fire-pit, fountains and entrance gate and cameras - all remotely controlled.
We wish you a wonderful stay and an experience to cherish.

We drove in from the busy street and entered an oasis that reminded me of the palazzos in Rome and the countryside. The luxury and atmosphere made us feel royal and relaxed and have already booked our return.

This ranch estate is absolutely breathtaking with stunning views of natural beauty. Taking you back in time, it is a gorgeous mix of antiquity and ultra modern, finished with luxurious amenities of a five star hotel. Having known the Giannini family for many years, I feel their warmth and rich family history woven into the fibers of this hidden treasure. This is a rare and one of a kind getaway.
"What a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Being situated above the surrounding properties afforded amazing views of the mountains and valley. Our favorite was the pool and the outdoor amenities at sunset. Thank you...we will see you again soon. Ciao!"
