a beautiful farmhouse in tuscany, italy


Fasten your seatbelts because we will be travelling the globe! In the next two weeks I will be showing you beautiful houses in Mexico, the UK, France, Australia and New Zealand. Today we start in Italy, in Tuscany to be exact.


This farmhouse was nothing but ruins but architect Jean-Philippe Gauvin brought new life into it. He renovated the farmhouse while preserving the authenticity and sense of the place. The terrace (images above) is decorated in an oriental style. The fabric and pillows are from Turkey.


The cupboard in the kitchen was kept in the orginal pink colour.


For the pool (image below), Jean-Philippe Gauvin preferred a grey coating giving the water a nice dark green rather than a bright blue. This way the pool merges with the gorgeous landscape.

  • Good idea, that pool !
    Do you know that in some regions of Italy they don’t let you build a blue pool, because it disturbs the views.
    We’re also looking for alternatives, but as always, the pool comes last 🙁 Too many other things to do for now.

  • I knew this home, it is beautiful.
    You have to include an Argentinian home in your tour and maybe a house located in Punta del Este,Uruguay.

  • Thanks for all your wonderful comments!

    Karina, I will try to find an Argentinian home or in Punta del Este. I know that there are some gorgeous house there!
