    For a still/film high-fashion shoot mid-march we are looking for:

    A sophisticated bourgeois home in a picturesque landscape (lake is ideal) for indoor/outdoor shots. Possibly of painting walls would be a plus.
    No castles, no cabins, rather a home that could be the home of a sophisticated woman living in the XIX century. Needs authenticity and character. Think the Danish Girl for general atmosphere.

    Open to all Europe except France and UK (sorry).

    Hi Simon, I’d like to offer you several locations in Croatia, on the lakes and by the sea, but I need a few details more, like – what did you mean by painting the walls? Please contact me directly.

    Here are two examples:

    One is a luxury mansion with English-style landscaping park around it. They have a stable and you can have your actors/models ride horses, or have horses just peacefully grazing around for additional “country leisure” atmosphere 🙂 It’s in a green valley, surrounded by picturesque hills.

    The other one is a country house from the 19th century, with a garden offering many beautiful places to sit and have tee, surrounded by flowers. I am sure you’ll love the fish pond, it adds to the 19th century atmosphere. As the owner is a collector, the best thing about it is that the interior is full of old things (pieces of furniture, old sewing machine, kitchen utensils, china sets…) which you can use to dress the set.
    It does have modern swimming pools, too, but I suppose you’re not after that 🙂

    I have hundreds more.

    Ooops! I can’t reach you by clicking on your profile (no contact details!) and I can’t attach the pictures from my computer here on the new forum any more. Please, contact me directly and I’ll send them to you in an e-mail, it’s so much quicker!

    … a bit of a delayed answer but in case you are still undecided we cover Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia and France… I’m sure we will find the home by a lake that suits your needs and budget. Check or website to see our clients or contact me directely to discuss a location proposal. Cheers, Paolo
