This apartment boasts multiple terraces, including one that wraps entirely around its lower floor, giving magnificent views of the surrounding mountains, the river valley, and the sea beyond.

An Italianate bridge from the terrace on the fourth floor leads to private garden areas with a fountain and 4 upholstered chaise lounges.
Third Floor: The apartment, the grandest residence in the villa, is accessed via a private entrance on the third floor. This apartment was the original residence of the French Baron who built the villa more than 500 years ago.

The living room is equipped with satellite TV and a CD player. The eat-in kitchen has ample counter space as well as an oven, stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, American-style coffee maker, juicer, food processor, and washing machine/dryer. A large foyer (with adjacent WC) leads into the dining room, filled with antique furnishings and a marble dining table which seats 12. The dining room, living room, and kitchen boast 12 foot ceilings and 11-foot double doors which open onto a grand terrace. A master bedroom has a 160 cm queen-size bed with Ungaro linens and down pillows. Furnishings include large armoires, dressers, and an antique chair. The master bathroom (not ensuite), done in rare Taormina marble, has a sink, toilet, shower, and separate tub with handheld shower head.

On this floor there are two large double bedrooms with 160 cm queen-size beds outfitted with Versace-inspired linens and down pillows. Each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom decorated in Travertine Marble and Italian tile. Both bathrooms have a sink, toilet, and shower, but one also has an additional Jacuzzi tub.
