Style Notes

Mid-century Italian. Vaulted ceilings, exposed wooden beams and Italian hexagon tile floors add an authentic rustic touch to the clean and mid-century modern furnishings with rich emerald green accents. An open gourmet kitchen with exposed brick and large square dining table is the center of this Italian home, with natural light in every corner and an oversized outdoor terrace for enjoying the Tuscan sun. We love the luxurious travertine-marble bathroom with freestanding modern tub, oversized pendant lights, and art sculptures on display.

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.

Visited in July 2018
A wonderful place for families! We stayed here for two weeks in July and we had such a lovely time! We met a lot of families with children of a wide range of ages from all over Europe. My children made friends with kids who spoke NO English and they were able to communicate through the international language of "playing in the pool." We alternated lazy days at the villa with day trips to Pisa, Florence, Volterra, Bolgeri, and Chianti. These were about an hour to an hour and a half away by car. The location of the villa made it easy to explore Tuscany! The villa is well stocked for children of any age. We easily got a high chair and crib for the baby. My only criticism it that it was very hot during our stay and the windows have no screens so when we left them open, we were visited by creatures of ALL sort. We had huge spiders in the house, bees, horseflies, I got bitten to the point of hysteria by some small winged bugs that would not go away, and there were two lizards that came in the house. I had to resort to keeping the windows shut and suffering the heat rather than the creatures. I suggested they put some screens up to make this a bit more livable during the hot summer. That was really my only complaint. The cafe is very good and the breakfasts are affordable if you buy them by the week. It was comfortable and had a lot of good options for all three meals and my kids were sad to leave the osteria staff! Tuscany Forever is a wonderful place and I would be so lucky to return, even if I do have to share the villa with a few small but aggressive lizards!

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.
