Originally designed and built in the 1950s on unexplored Coachella Valley land, a renowned Italian Physicist created this 9 acre Ranch with its 1 acre Mediterranean Villa. The Ducati family, Janet Gaynor and Princess Grace of Monaco are among the many celebrities, royalty and dignitaries whom have graced this Estate. We invite you to experience this landmark’s newly completed Villa restoration. Atop the dune and nestled in the center of its olive orchard, the main Villa is situated at third story height and is walled with panoramic glass sliders. The design opens to 360° unencumbered views over surrounding trees, of the Coachella Valley mountains, Polo Grounds to the east and spectacular sunrise, and sunsets. The interior is fashioned with imported custom modern furniture highlighted by an exquisite collection of familial antiquities.
Designed and fabricated in Italy are the kitchen, walk-in closets, cabinetry throughout, and bed & bath linens. The original roman style terrazzo showers are refitted with waterfalls, spa jets, rain showers and tub fillers. Baths also feature Toto fixtures, and imported Italian luxury shower amenities. The direct closed satellite system allows guests Wifi both in and out of doors. State of the art amenities, all remotely controlled include: hidden televisions, seven zones of indoor/outdoor sound for airplay, radio & turntable, heated pool, spa for 10, fire-pit, fountains and entrance gate control with video view. The circular sunken Bbq seats 20 and is provisioned with a Caliber grill, refrigerator and freezer drawers, beverage center, ice maker and hot/cold copper sink. Two additional outdoor dinning areas each seat six. Additional shade throughout provided by ten x 14' umbrellas.
Villa and grounds thoroughly cleaned and sanitized prior to check-in and promptly following check-out.
A. Ducati ~ 1968 - Guest Book Translation
Gazing upon the natural 'island' landscape and taking in the magnificent atmosphere, the body immediately relaxes and the mind empties of life's every-day troubles. Words and pictures do not do it justice, it must be experienced to be understood.

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!"
