Rural Tuscany - at the FOLLONICO B&B boutique guesthouse in Montefollonico.

The Salvaged Tuscan

Gelato tones wrap salvaged pieces creating romance itself in this wondrously enchanting farmhouse of style.

INTRO

Follonico is a boutique Tuscan farmhouse that is both serene and sensual, cleverly narrating the simple rural rhythms of a countryside Italian lifestyle. This once forgotten aged farmhouse, now lovingly preserved, is brimming with a curatorial interior collage of salvage, vintage, worn imperfection and a splash of romantic escapism.

Ruggedly handsome thick protective walls, stripped & scrubbed chunky beams, uneven flagstone flooring and weathered portals are cushioned with powdery, barley whites, eggshell blues and shots of bright gelato.

Soft and delicate yet bold and creative, romantic Follonico is a tale of architectural heritage that conjures the unscripted delights of fresh eggs, mouth-tingling cheeses and baby lambs – this boutique B&B heralds Tuscany raw and un-engineered, with a theatrical touch of bohemia.

LOCATION

Idyllic rural setting overlooking sloping vineyards of southern Tuscany just a few kms from the village of Montefollonico, sort of between Siena and Perugia and close to Montepulciano with Pienza and the Val d'Orcia on your doorstep. 

Sleeping here is like stealing a night with Alice in Wonderland - theatrics and fairy-like styling evoke a whole new meaning to rough-luxe
