Trudie Styler Reveals Why She, Sting and Their Kids Still Adore Their Italy Villa After 30 Years (Exclusive)

Trudie Styler and Sting’s longtime Italy estate is more than just a vacation home for the couple. 

The actress and producer, 70, opened up about her Tuscany abode that she’s shared with the rocker for nearly 30 years while speaking exclusively with PEOPLE at the Globo d’Oro Awards in Italy on Wednesday, July 3. 

“For 30 years now we’ve returned again and again to our place in Tuscany, with all of the family – our little kids are now all grown up and now bringing their own children,” Styler tells PEOPLE. “It is the place where we all congregate together and connect.”

Styler — whose film Posso Entrare? An Ode to Naples won best documentary at the event — shares kids Mickey, 40, Jake, 39, Eliot, 33, and Giacomo, 28, with Sting. The Police frontman is also dad to son Joe, 47, and daughter Fuschia, 42, from his previous marriage to ex Frances Tomelty.

“We really just relax there during August, we barely ever leave the estate. We all eat together, we read, swim, take walks, play games, we watch movies,” the writer and director shared. 

Wine plays an important role in the couple’s itinerary in Italy as well, as she notes, “We love to catch up with what’s going on in the vineyards. 

Styler — who has been married to Sting for over 30 years — adds that the pair will “always have our wedding anniversary celebration” at their Tuscany home.

Taking a walk down memory lane, the Silent Night actress recalled to PEOPLE what first drew her and her husband to the European destination. 

“Sting and I fell in love with Italy many years ago — so much so that after one of our kids was born near Pisa, we spent years looking for a home for us all,” says Styler. “Italy has always been incredibly kind to us.”

She continues, “Since the 1980s when I made films here in Rome at Cinecittà – then Sting wrote one of his most emotional albums near Pisa the year after his parents died, and at the same time I gave birth to one of our kids – Italy has a special place in our hearts for many reasons.”

In 2016, Styler and Sting welcomed PEOPLE into the 16th century villa and gave a tour of the sprawling 900-acre property located just outside of Florence. 

The estate, known as Il Palagio, boasts a number of impressive qualities, including five lakes, a forest of 8,000 trees, acres of grapevines and six guest houses.
