Nestled amongst the rolling hills of Italy, close to the border where Umbria meets Tuscany, lies a real gem of a place in the form of the family-run estate, Castello di Reschio. Dating back to 1202, the estate is home to Count Antonio Bolza and his family, who purchased the 3,000 acre country estate in 1994 and set up a family business restoring and renovating disused farmhouses and transforming them into stunning homes. Count Benedikt Bolza, the talented managing director and chief architect of Castello di Reschio restored the estate’s tobacco factory building into an estate offices, design studio, workshops and exhibition space.
Heritage and history are exquisitely balanced with contemporary style and cool elegance, yet the space does not feel pretentious or contrived. It feels completely natural; there is a sense of ease, as if it had always been like this.
