How are people defining a "pastoral" view? Does it require meadows and sheep? (just kidding about the sheep). Where I am (marin county, California) we have what I call Hill views, a view of a particular landmark mountain, water views, panoramic views. Agents use the term "greenbelt." When the hill views are peaceful and gentle, exquisitely framed, does that count as pastoral? So far I've been avoiding the word .
