The Opulent City of Lucca

Tuscandream 21/08/2014

In our opinion Lucca is perhaps the most opulent and culturally interesting of all the magnificent cities in Tuscany. Founded originally by the Etruscans and then passed on to the Romans, Lucca prospered as it became the center of the silk trade in the 11th century. The silk trade brought considerable wealth into Lucca and both a middle and an upper middle class emerged. The Bernardini and Buonvisi families rose to considerable prominence not only…

Off the beaten tracks of Tuscany, Maremma

Tuscandream 10/02/2014

Every year we  select new properties to add to the TuscanDream portfolio.  Recently we added Poggio Diavolino farmhouse in Southern Tuscany, off the beaten tracks of Tuscany, located in the Maremma area, only 15 minutes from the beaches of Castiglione della Pescaia. Maremma is one of the less well known area of Tuscany and for this reason it has still a lot to offer, especially because everything you encounter is the “real” deal. Gems like Siena and Bolgheri…

Inspiring Country Chic South Africa Wedding Decor brought to Tuscany

Carolina Casini 05/11/2013

The South Africa wineland is one of the places I love the most. In our April trip, together with business partner Ric, had the chance to visit many wedding venues of these amazing part of the world. One of the places is always in my memories is Babylonstoren, an ancient old Dutch farmhouse converted in a luxury hotel.

Here is where I have seen the most creative, simple and inspiring decorations for a wedding table that would fit any of our countryside estates here in Tuscany.
