A stylish linear garden design gives the courtyard a grand feel. Typical of any Italian fortified farmhouse (or masseria), the living quarters and courtyard are protected by high walls.
A large rustic table in the centre of the kitchen gives the space a laid-back, relaxed feel, while other wooden touches, such as the bowl and units, add warmth to the pale backdrop. Find a similar table at French Finds.
Full-length curtains take the place of traditional shutters to give the bedroom a softer, more relaxed feel. A stunning bateau bath at the end of the four-poster bed creates a dramatic statement and transforms the room into a luxurious retreat.
Claire could not resist using blue linen accessories to give this room a vibrant splash of Mediterranean spirit. Throw and cushions, Beyond France.
