Homes of the Stars: Sting’s Villa in Tuscany.

Homes of the Stars: Sting’s Villa in Tuscany.

Sting owns many homes around the world – from Italy to the United States. But the pearl of his collection is the villa Il Palagio, built in the 16th century, where the singer loves to relax with his wife, actress Trudy Styler. The villa is located in the Chianti region, 45 minutes from Florence.

There are six cottages on its territory, which the singer rents out, so everyone can visit and taste homemade wine from Sting’s wine cellars.

Sting acquired Il Palagio in 1999 from Duke Simon Vincenzo Velutti di San Clemente, along with several plots of land nearby. Here, the British pop star enjoys all the delights of rural life: in addition to vast vineyards and olive groves, the singer has his own wine cellars, a dairy and an apiary. On the site of the villa you can buy three varieties of wine from the singer’s vineyards and five varieties of honey.

Sting overhauled the main building and all other buildings and installed a three-meter statue of Buddha in the adjoining chapel. As you know, the musician has been practicing yoga for more than 20 years and has assigned a special place for classes and meditation in the villa.

Villa tenants are allowed to use the pool, sun loungers in the garden, a huge chessboard on the terrace and a wine cellar. The latter is spacious enough so that you can set a banquet table and arrange a wine tasting for the owner. There is also a lake, cypress grove and summer kitchen on the 900 acres of the local area.

“I never imagined I would ever buy such a huge house,” Sting says. – In the mornings it is very beautiful here, especially during the fog. The neighboring hills seem to emerge from the sea waves. In the evenings, I can endlessly watch the movement of clouds in the setting sky. ”
