Former US President Barack Obama and wife Michelle Obama, make a smart couple. One of the best things about them is that they make the best of the time they have for themselves. 

And they are back at it again, enjoying!  At present, they are in Tuscany military base (Italy), all wrapped in opulence and comfort. 

When they arrived at the military base on May 19, 2017, they were guarded by six fighter jets and were escorted in a 13-car motorcade to Borgo Finocchieto, which is a 14th-century village in Tuscany. They are on an all-expenses-paid world tour. 

The sprawling property, where they are to stay is a lavish villa in Borgo Finocchieto village. It is a five-building, six-acre space and is owned by former US ambassador to Italy, John Philips. It has 22 bedrooms, multiple saunas and jacuzzis, a swimming pool, a gym and a basketball court. The couple will stay in the villa for five days.

They were escorted away from the military air base airport in an armoured Chevrolet.

"Rebuilding was expected to be totally consistent with what was there before. If there was a window 300 years ago that had been covered up, you could put the window back, but you could not add a new window,"  he said while referring to the interiors which were redesigned but the exteriors which were not changed.

Aminimum three-night reservation can be made at the villa.
