Country life is diametrically opposed to city life in many ways: quiet vs. noise; slow vs. fast; crowds vs. privacy; and relaxed vs. frenetic. Yet those are only superficial differences and sometimes not even wholly accurate. The city on a Sunday afternoon can often be a lot quieter than a country meadow buzzing with insect and bird life. Still, life in the country does provide a certainly laid-back quality that allows one to shed one’s urban defensive armor and take time to smell the roses.
If you are contemplating a country retreat in Virginia’s Hunt and Wine Country, I can help you find not only the antidote to city living you crave, but also a variety of country lifestyles, from rustic to sophisticated, to suit your nature.
While Virginia’s northern Piedmont reaches from the Maryland border in the north down to Charlottesville in the South, the core of Hunt and Wine country is concentrated in Northern Fauquier County and Rappahannock County only an hour or so away from downtown DC, and then further south in Orange and Albemarle Counties. Additional opportunities to enjoy country living at its finest exist in Clarke, Loudoun, Culpeper, Madison, Warren, and Greene Counties as well. Each of these counties has its own particular character, so be sure to click the links to each jurisdiction for more specific information.
