A farmhouse in Tuscany

The typical Tuscan farmhouse, called a "Colonica", is built with natural stones and is gifted with its own, unique charm. A colonica is usually made up of two floors, with a third in some cases consisting of a small tower or "piccionaia", and most have been generally restored completely by their owners. Casa In Toscana has many of these colonica available - including the one pictured above.

Three steps to buying a property in Tuscany

There are many things involved when buying real estate in Italy, but these three contractual steps are always necessary:

1. The proposta irrevocabile d'acquisto (irrevocable offer subject to contract)

2. The contratto preliminare or compromesso (preliminary contract)

3. The final contract
