La Foce, or “the mouth” of the Orcia river, in the beautiful Val d’Orcia, Toscana. If there is a more beautiful place on earth, I’ve yet to find it.
Created by Iris Origo and her husband, this incredible formal Italian garden is set amidst the rugged Crete senesi. This was my second visit, but I know there will be more visits in the future. Last time I was there, it was late summer and the earth and foliage was rather brown. This time, after the rains we have been getting, it was vibrantly green. It is beautiful in any season.
