What a tranquille scene! This luxury villa Palazzo, can be found on the border of Tuscany. It is part of a 2700 acre private estate named Castello di Reschio. You can see the wondrous rolling landscape in the distance. The estate has around 50 farmhouses that have been beautifully converted into high spec private quarters.
The estate is owned and run by Count Antonia Bolza and his family. The rent is around £2,500 a night.
These beautiful arches interlock the serene infinity edge pool with a long sweep of stairs leading to the…splash.
We are loving the exposed timber against the simple white. The terracotta stone floor tiles add to the rustic feel along with the delightful choice of accessories. We are also rather enamoured with the decorative storage trunk which doubles as a shelf / sideboard / table.
The gorgeous arched glass doors open out to dazzling natural views whilst inside our eyes have latched onto the elaborate candle hardware.
The running theme in this lovely villa is white, tan, terracotta and black trim. The stone floors, the pebble dash, wooden beams and the exposed brickwork are wholly responsible for the rustic, peaceful feel. Natural materials do that. They breathe. They are organic and the home or space seems at once more authentic. To achieve this you have to let nature in and then don’t fight with it. Paint with subtle natural tones (like terracotta), make use of natural material without processing them into something false. Find beautifully handmade, raw-feel earthenware jugs and plates for eating or decorative purposes, (see our suggestion below and more in the Style Index). You can just spy some examples on the shelves in the living room area and some of the accessories outside.
