Style Notes

Mid-century Italian. Exposed stone walls, wooden beams and Italian hexagon tile floors add an authentic rustic touch to the clean and mid-century modern furnishings. Imaginative contemporary architectural features mix beautifully with rustic Tuscan style to create a stunning living environment. The main living space has natural tones and wicker lampshades plus floral throw pillows and opens to a terrace with garden views. We love the easy living style and the great facilities a stone’s throw away making a family vacation simple.

Tuscany Forever is not only the touristic destination it's our style of living and the way we try to make our dreamas come true. The idea of creating Tuscany Forever came across our minds few years ago. We didn't know what to expect but the time flew by so fast that we didn't even noticed how deeply we became absorbed by Italian reality more than we ever thought. Anyone who visits Tuscany Forever understand immediately why we hung on to the hill . The view out of each room windows offers a endless flow of energy. It is easy to explain why we are so passionate about living and working in Tuscany Forever , Volterra . We experienced many encounters , encounters that turn into our style , the views on life and finally now Tuscany Forever project.

Tuscany, Italy

Olive groves, vineyards and rolling hills

This region of central Italy is as picture-perfect as you’ve heard: all rolling countryside, cypress trees, hazy views and historic stone villages. For those too young to enjoy wine, olive oil and relaxing, there are water parks, child-friendly heritage sites and theme parks, meadows and woods to play in, and donkeys to befriend. Hire a car and explore the surrounding area, buy fresh pasta to cook at home later, or spend afternoons in vineyards deciding which variety of Chianti you like the best.
