Andrea Bocelli got the fabulous tenor voice while his brother Alberto was blessed with the architect genes and is responsible for designing some of Tuscany’s most luxurious villas.

One of five apartments in Ville degli Olivi, an historic house restored in collaboration with Alberto and just a moment’s stroll from the Italian brothers’ native village of Lajatico, is for sale with Realitalia for £255,000.

Overlooking an olive grove, the development has a heated outdoor swimming pool and is a very short walk from the Teatro del Silenzio open-air theatre where Andrea performs each year alongside other international stars.

The singer attended a glittering gala dinner on Monday night at historic Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, where Prince Charles was crowned Renaissance Man of the Year.
