Villa Rocco dei Dragoni, Tavernelle, Italy

Official owners are the sons of HM the Queen, but the farm was bought by the queen and her husband in the 70-ties and completely restaured to what it is now. I believe they also have an olive vineyard there.

The article says that the medieaeval farmhouse and the domain around it was bought by Princess Beatrix and Prince Claus in 1975 from the Count De Vicini. The domain was owned by the three brothers Prince Willem-Alexander, Prince Johan Friso and Prince Constantijn. We may assume that Prince Friso's part is now owned by his daughters Countess Luana and Countess Zaria.

The article says that Princess Beatrix is still befriended with the family De Vicini. That family owns the domain San Andrea, 600 hectares large and divided in several parts. 91 hectare is used for the prodution of Chanti Classico. 80 hectare is used for premier class olive trees.

The domain is difficult to reach and there is a 4 metres high fence around it. There are posts manned by the Carabinieri. The municipality of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa is divided in various villages: Tavarnelle Val di Pesa itself, Sambuca Val di Pesa, San Donato in Poggio, Tignano, Badia and Passignano. The domain is really in "typical Tuscany" and must be a paradise for the royal family.
