This renovated farm estate is located in the scenic Crete Senesi area of Southern Tuscany. The land has been terraced to create a number of discrete gardens including a formal perennial and shrub garden and several terraced areas with native flowering vines, subtropical planting, fragrant Mediterranean herbs, and antique climbing roses. Hardscape materials included local pietra santa fiora and salvaged travertine from local quarries.
