designer Valentino Garavani has listed his Tuscan holiday villa for sale for £10million.

The 18th-century property boasts 15 bedrooms each decorated in an individual style, including the Sophia Loren room, named after the famous Italian actress who once spent the night there. 

Located close to the village of Cetona, it sits in 27 acres of private grounds which feature olive groves, a 200-seat stone amphitheatre, tree-lined running track, and swimming pool with pool-house. 

In total, the property has 17,000sqft of living space, including a gym and sauna. The grounds also include a former horse stables. 

Perhaps the most unusual feature of the home is buried underneath it - a series of tunnels leading to an Etruscan tomb that dates to the 7th-century.
