Daily Garden: Patrizio’s Tuscan Farmhouse

podere palazzo tuscan farmhouse garden

Podere Palazzo is the tuscan farmhouse vacation home of Chicago based designer Patrizio Fradiani.  The home is rent-able for a holiday stay in Tuscan region of Italy.  My friend sent me the link from designtripper when I recently mentioned my trip later this year to Italy.   It is a lovely place — and while it is a bit south of the route I will be traveling, the gardens are certainly worth a mention here for their relaxed mix of modern and traditional styling that seems quite at home in the beatuiful hills. I do wish that this were an option for our trip!

The hilltop garden is full of berries, grapes, berbs and even a rare variety of olive brought north from the island of sicily. There are of course the steroetypical but perfect spindly cypress but also a flock of sheep, and the odd wild boar to keep the garden lively.

Beautiful!
It would be marvelous to spend a holiday there.
I can imagine falling asleep on that hammock feeling the warmth of the afternoon sun.
