´That’s where they used to make wine. And the other house served as a winter garden for citrus trees, potted there in front of the windows in large terracotta pots’, said my good friend Vittorio with pride in his voice. My thoughts wandered off to centuries past. I realised that all of the enchanting stories about Tuscany are true. Actually true.
The gardener was working the blossoming garden while pine and olive trees basked in the sun. A little further up ahead, I could see the peaceful medieval town of Cortona perched on a hill. ‘This used to be the holiday home of a rich aristocrat family back in the 1800s. We wanted to preserve that state of being’. I smiled because I even saw it reflected in the swimming pool. Majestic with hints of classic Tuscany. The time had come to enter the yellow villas with their green shutters and Vittorio plucked the key from under a flowerpot. They like to keep things familial here.
As we entered the villa, I noticed how the light shines through the windowpanes. How they managed to combine a perfect centuries-old authentic look and feel with modern comfort. Terracotta floors, high wooden ceilings and antique. In the kitchen, I imagined how my friends would be stirring a pot with pasta sauce before stepping outside to enjoy the good life together.`
´I’ll go for the wine villa', I smiled. As I was prancing through my majestic home, I called my friends: ‘How would you describe it?’, they asked. ‘As a Tuscan joyous state of being.´
