Usually the baths and kitchens I show on KBCULTURE are in private homes, but this sweet alfresco setting is an exception. Architects Markus Wespi and Jerome de Meuron renovated a villa in Treia, Italy, that's available as a vacation rental. Casa Olivi does have an indoor kitchen, but with a vista like this, I'd spend my time tending the grill outside. wespidemeuron.ch
