Looking for authentic Italy? Try Le Marche. With its old stones and multitude of small windows, Villa Luca seems straight out of a romance novel. The Italian sun bathes this old farm in white sunlight that reflects onto the turquoise waters of the modern pool. The minimalist décor shows its bohemian side with linen curtains and vintage-coloured pillows. In each room, the wood stands in harmony with contemporary materials - the stainless-steel central island, the white designer chairs, varnished desks and the modern curved bathtubs.
