Villa Under the Tuscan Sun, Lucignano: EUR 1,900,000
La Dolce Villa
Those of a romantic nature might recall "Under The Tuscan Sun", the bestselling memoir by Frances Mayes that was adapted into a rom-com of the same name. Whilst this is not quite the same villa as featured in the book and film, the villa Under The Tuscan Sun certainly has romance and rustic charm in spades.
What the owner says: "Although embracing the typical Tuscan style, the Villa has acquired a feel of originality and elegance combined with all the comforts of modern life..."
What we love:
Not only does this villa tick all the boxes (rolling country views, four dual-aspect en-suite bedrooms, lush garden complete with olive groves and outdoor pool etc), but it is also infused with a spirit that feels uniquely Tuscan. Perhaps it is the ancient dry stone walls, quietly contemplating the passage of time in the shadow of cypress trees; or the elegant brick arch in the living room, witness to countless joyous family gatherings over the years. This postcard-perfect villa, in all its relaxed refinement, is exactly how you would picture a Tuscan villa.
What we would do:
We would be tempted to see whether our selection of sleek, contemporary furniture would fit in the villa; even though the current setting of elegant modern furniture with a smattering of antique pieces and just a hint of shabby chic feels exactly right.
The Villa Under the Tuscan Sun is available for sale at EUR 1,900,000. Prices and details are correct as at July 2021.
Add a dash of style to the outdoor spaces with the Gardenias armchair with pergola from BD Barcelona Design, the Ming aluminium dining table from Stellar Works and the Wick rechargeable table lamp from Graypants.
