The property developer's family owns Villa Mapelli Mozzi

The property developer's family own a spectacular 18th-century property known as Villa Mapelli Mozzi in Ponte San Pietro, a small town an hour's drive from Lake Como in Italy. Complete with 13 bedrooms, two libraries, an outdoor swimming pool and 18,000 square feet of space, it has all the amenities of a royal residence and would make an incredible holiday home for Beatrice, Edoardo and their baby Sienna.
