Val d’Orcia and its dream farmhouses
The dream cottages, on hillocks and surrounded by vast panoramas, have always been a representative image of the Val d’Orcia and Tuscany. When they were afraid of never coming out of quarantine and we brooded over possible escape routes, here is the image of lonely fields and spaces as a safe heaven. The symbolic destination of this safe heaven far from the surrounding world is Tuscany, with its farmhouses and properties.
The return to the countryside is a movement that begins at the top of the cultural and social scale; starting with noble families who travel the world to always return to their roots and their places of origin, to get to all those who have arrived there to make up for years of metropolitan stress with a bucolic life, following the seasons.
Nowadays, sustainability and slow-living are no longer just shared values, but they are now an urgent necessity that many of us aspire to and look forward to with hope.
Rural is not always synonymous with frugal, and the farmhouses can be perfectly renovated and equipped with every comfort: SPA, sauna, Jacuzzi, tennis court, swimming pool and smart-homing facilities are features that perfectly combine a rural location with the utmost modernity and comfort.
The sandstone, wrought iron, wood, terracotta and local marble compose a rural but elegant style, which integrates well the architecture in the landscape and also makes the interiors of many houses and farmhouses homogeneous, so we talk about a Tuscany Style Decor.
