My wife and I had been looking for houses in Italy a long time before we found this peaceful pearl of stone. We live in the south of Sweden and appreciate visiting Scrofiano with its quiet location in the heart of Tuscany. There we have easy access to the culture, good food, local wines (e. g. Chianti and Montepulciano) and, of course, the breathtaking landscape. Having breakfast under the grapes on the patio in the morning and playing the flute in the medieval tower room of the house really gives me peace of mind. I have a Master of Science in Engineering and mainly work with the valuation of commercial, industrial and residential rental properties in Sweden. The architecture in the surrounding medieval towns in Tuscany gives me a chance for reflection and provides a contrast to my ordinary life.
