Take in the beauty of the Tuscan countryside, immerse yourself in the Italian way of life and be among the first to take to the road in the all-new Aston Martin DB11.
This experience takes you to the heart of Tuscany, between Sienna and Florence, and to Villa Collalto, the home of Aston Martin. A rural idyll of olive groves, castles and vineyards, the setting provides the backdrop for an exceptional and luxurious three-day break.
There’s no better way to fully get to grips with the world-class driving dynamics of Aston Martin’s all-new DB11 than by exploring the winding routes, hilltop villages and stunning views of Tuscany.
The elegant 15th century Villa Collalto is only 45 minutes from Florence and is the ideal base from which to get to know the surrounding region.
The first day of the three-day experience reflects the Italian way of life in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, with evening cocktails followed by an informal dinner al fresco on the Villa’s terrace.
After a leisurely breakfast on the second day, we’ll invite you to take to the wheel of a DB11 to explore the area in true sporting GT style. As one of the first in the world to experience Aston Martin’s new model, you’ll discover how DB11 combines exceptional design with pioneering aerodynamics and the latest technology. It’s an exhilarating driving experience.
Those not participating in the morning driving course can make the most of the peaceful setting in their own way, with a range of activities held at the Villa. These include cookery and painting classes, as well as yoga and meditation sessions. Lunch at the Villa is a wonderful way to catch up with fellow guests and share experiences from the morning.
During the afternoon, guests who enjoyed morning activities at the Villa will be invited to drive DB11, while those who already enjoyed their drive will have the chance to experience the activity sessions.
A relaxed breakfast on the third and final day is the perfect way to end this experience, inspired by the beauty and character of Tuscany and the Aston Martin DB11.
As evening approaches, you’ll join your Aston Martin hosts for cocktails, followed by an elegant gala dinner in luxury Italian style.
Villa Collalto is situated in the heart of the Tuscany countryside, between Siena and Florence, and is the ideal accommodation for anybody who loves nature.
Encircled by luxury gardens, the villa stands on top of a hill and enjoys a breathtaking view over Siena.
The main building, owned for centuries by one Roman Aristocratic Family, dates back to 1400 and was restructured with loving care during 1996 – 1998, while additional construction was added between the 18th and 19th century, transforming the building into a splendid holiday villa in Italy.
The villa has 18 elegantly furnished bedrooms, each with different colours and decors, and may sleep up to 35 guests.
It can be rented as a whole to spend your holiday with friends and, for your relaxing moments, a large swimming pool equipped with sun beds and gazebos offers abundant shade, which is a perfect heaven to rest or contemplate the breathtaking view offered by our luxury villa in Italy.
