Rural Tuscany - at the FOLLONICO B&B boutique guesthouse in Montefollonico.

The Salvaged Tuscan

Follonico is a boutique Tuscan guest house close to Montefollonico that is both serene and sensual, cleverly narrating the simple rural rhythms of a countryside Italian lifestyle.

This once forgotten aged farmhouse, now lovingly preserved, is brimming with a curatorial interior design of salvage, vintage, worn imperfection and a splash of romantic escapism.

Ruggedly handsome thick protective walls, stripped and scrubbed chunky beams, uneven flagstone flooring and weathered portals are cushioned with powdery, barley whites, eggshell blues and shots of bright gelato. In the grounds, there are amble places to sit and just ponder among the lavenders or chillax in the new outdoor swimming pool.

Soft and delicate yet bold and creative, romantic Follonico is a tale of architectural heritage that conjures the unscripted delights of fresh eggs, mouth-tingling cheeses and baby lambs – this boutique B&B heralds Tuscany raw and un-engineered, with a theatrical touch of bohemia.
