courtyard crush


Hiding in the folds of Umbria are clutches of stone farmhouses that are caught in a web of sweeping views.   This one in particular is the bomb. 
The center courtyard fountain's nod to the Alhambra, the iconic cypress that perforate the landscape, the pergola that forms the first tread to the stepped secondary structure and the path that leads to the Smithson -inspired stone ringed olive tree .....stunning.
