The beaches and golf courses of Punta Cana are at your doorstep when you stay at Villa Toscana. Set on a rise overlooking a golf course and the ocean beyond, the estate has both gorgeous views and four beaches and two golf courses within an 18-mile drive. After a day by the sea or on the links, nine suite-style bedrooms and European-inspired interiors offer a luxurious welcome.
Though the villa looks like a historic Tuscan estate, it opens to state-of-the-art outdoor living areas, from a loggia with a sitting area and balconies to a separate pavilion with a barbecue, wet bar and alfresco dining area. The jetted tub just off the house leads to a free form pool and terrace with plenty of chaise lounges and daybeds and views of the golf course and ocean. Inside, Villa Toscana has a television and wireless internet access and is air conditioned.
The villa's surroundings may be lush and tropical, but as its name implies, its interiors have Italian elegance. Two beautiful indoor courtyards, one of which is topped by a stained-glass dome, bring to mind the conservatories of grand European estates. The large living room features coffered ceilings, neutral tones and two stately yet comfortable sitting areas, and the serene dining room can seat 24 guests with ease. In the fully equipped kitchen, white cabinets, stone counters and a breakfast bar are bright and welcoming.
Each of the nine bedrooms at Villa Toscana has an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and a TV; one of the king bedrooms opens to the terrace and the other eight suites have balcony access. There are five bedrooms with king beds and four bedrooms with two double beds each. The bedrooms' neutral tones, arched windows and doors, pale wood trim and statement chandeliers are based on traditional Tuscan style but have a few contemporary touches, too.
