Hi Pugliese - what a stunning project, and it already looks fantastic.
Difficult to really make suggestions as such, but if the property is for letting, I think a basic framework of greenery in a formal design will be the best way to go. Maintenance is going to be tricky if you have anything too fussy or involving lots of pruning, staking, feeding and maintenance.
I expect you've already done a little homework on Italianate gardens of that style. A simple parterre of box hedging, with suitable perennials in the spaces and a line of cypress would be what I'd go for. How you lay that out would depend on the aspect and where you want features, ie from that terrace, bordering the pool, would be nice for the cypress. The parterre could be in between those or on another side of the building. Statues, or large pots with appropriate easy care annuals, or matching evergreens are features you may want to add at some point depending on your finances.
Don't know if that's of any help, or what you have in mind, but the old adage of right plant, right place is always a good starting point, so take a look at what other planting is around you too - if any!
