Tuscan farmhouses are essential presences and iconic symbols of Tuscany’s famed, dreamlike landscape. A little bit of history: a Tuscan farmhouse is a “casa colonica”, i.e. an ancient farmstead dating back to the times of sharecropping, when the tenants farmed the owner’s land and lived right by the fields with their families. These are spacious homes, originally built to house the tenant’s family, farm animals, and also allow storage of field equipment and goods produced on the Flower Girl Dresses sale farm. A colonica is a 2 or 3 floor countryside home covered by the characteristic pitched Tuscan red-tile roof and enclosed by ancient stone walls (often the pale grey typically Tuscan “pietra serena”). At TuscanVillas.com we love farmhouses!
