Features of our beautiful Holiday Cottage in Tuscany
We’ve done our very best to make this experience feel like a little slice of Woodfarm, with a Tuscan twist. We’ve furnished it with lots of fab things from Suffolk and the UK, but it’s still very Tuscan at heart. With breathtaking valley views from every room, you’ll spend a lot of time looking out of the windows!
We have free Wifi for you, and the house has aircon (and heating) throughout.
The first thing you see is our amazing, fully enclosed terrace. It cost a pretty penny, but boy, was it worth it?! You can see at least six ancient churches from here.
We have outside seating with a large, granite table over a wonderful antique cast iron base. It was originally from a French butcher’s shop, brought back to an antique shop in Suffolk, and now I took it back through France to Italy. It’s well travelled!
Pizza Oven and BBQ on a long table that I made from some old scaffold boards and a couple of cast iron pub table bases from Suffolk.
There are a couple of sun loungers too. You get the sun all day until it goes behind the house in the evening to cool you down.
We have a fully fitted and equipped kitchen, which I am over the moon with. It combines a number of auction pieces that I picked up in Suffolk, pre-Covid, with an amazing electric cooker, with induction hob, and fridge with freezer compartment, and a range of shelving that I made in situ. The thick oak worktops were all bought and oiled back home, and shipped over.
The tiles were an awesome find, and I thoroughly enjoyed installing them.
I sourced a really funky retro toaster and kettle in Lucca, and managed to find a whole bunch of utensils that go with them too. There’s a microwave too.
Italian stovetop coffee maker, as well as cafetieres large and small.
A lovely oak dining table (yup, from a Suffolk antique shop) and really comfy leather chairs.
Open log fire.
It’s a really cute and cosy bedroom, featuring a gorgeous double bed frame that was another Suffolk auction find. It’s walnut, and whilst a work of art, it looked very dated. So we painted it!
Drawers and hanging space that I made from a gorgeous slab of burr walnut. I love it!
Your duvet, pillows, egyptian cotton bedding and towels are there, from the same high quality hotel supplier that we use in the UK.
Bed throw and cushions from Snape Maltings in Suffolk.
Large leather sofa, Smart TV, and a range of antique shop and auction finds from Suffolk. The black & white framed photo above the old oak settle is the first thing I ever bought for the house. It features rooftops in Lucca, and as the house overlooks rooftops in Lucca, I really had to buy it!
A roll top, ball & claw-footed bath, sink and wet room shower. Oh, and a loo with a view!
We have a corridor that joins the dining room to the lounge, with the bedroom and bathroom off it. I’ve had these ancient framed urn prints for years, hoping one day I would have a house in Italy for them!
