About Dennis Sullivan

Gilly is a garden designer and has many published books on gardens and interiors, and Dennis is a semi retired advertising man.

We have 2 small and very friendly dogs and we both speak Italian as well as having a wealth of knowledge of this beautiful and unique part of Italy. Hence we can offer advice and information easily.

We can arrange for a private chef to come and cook for you at the house, and this is charged at cost.

All linens are provided including pool towels and are professionally cleaned. All bathrooms include a hairdryer and robe for each guest.

Central heating is charged at cost during the colder winter months, but wood for the two wood burning stoves and additional fireplace is provided free of charge.

Dennis Sullivan purchased this farmhouse in 2002

Why Dennis Sullivan chose San Giustino

We chose the house as a home rather than a rental, but after being here for 10 years, we purchased another property 10 km away which we have lived in since June 2012

What makes this farmhouse unique

The position of the house has been the most stunning and unique benefit. The hills above us are perfect for walking and enjoying the wildlife of birds, deer and many other parts of animal life.

The gardens and views from the house are magnificent yet we are only 2 minutes away from great restaurants, shops and commercial activity. In other words the best of both worlds.

The privacy of the pool area is stunning and the 'al fresco' dining areas conducive to great lunches and dinners.

Heavenly stay at Cinque Querce & Mezz

Heavenly stay at Cinque Querce & Mezz
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Cinque Querce & Mezzo ..... on our vacation to Italy in June this year. The property is truly magnificent. The farmhouse is huge with four bedrooms, big and well equipped kitchen, cosy and comfortable beds and a divine pool. Each room is nicely decorated and has a heavenly view from the large windows in each room. Its a perfect location with beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

There are lot of open spaces and complete privacy. The decor is tastefully done and has all the comforts of home.

The owners Dennis and Gilly are warm and fantastic hosts and made our stay very memorable. They also organised a fresh pasta making session for us at the farmhouse. Oh! it was fabulous: the lady was energetic and friendly and cooked some fresh pasta for our dinner. I would highly recommend this for anyone interested in trying their hands on making fresh pasta or for those just wanting to enjoy a fresh pasta dinner!!

We will give this property a five stars!

The perfect house for a perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5
My family of six, including teenagers had a truly fantastic 4 week stay at Cinque Querce e Mezzo. The house is very tastefully furnished and well-equipped: the internet was a huge bonus as was the satellite TV, especially for my 4 sons! The views from the terrace are magnificent and the evenings under the loggia eating home-made pizza from the bread oven have left wonderful memories.

The house is very accessible (some white roads can be tortuous) and there's easy access to many beautiful medieval towns and cities in the area. There was a book in the house compiled by Gilly and Dennis of their favourite restaurants and other local tips which was very useful.

Gilly and Dennis were perfect hosts who went out of their way to ensure that we had a great holiday. This included visits bearing treats such as homemade jam and the use of an Italian mobile phone to make local calls to book restaurants and to get in touch with them easily.

Our stay was so perfect, in fact, that we have booked to return next summer already!

Wonderful stay in Umbria

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from 5 days in Umbria at Cinque Querce & Mezzo. It's a wonderful, spacious house on a nicely landscaped property with a fine pool and view of the Italian countryside. Though secluded, the property is not a far drive from exquisite Italian cuisine and good shopping. The owners and hosts were friendly, helpful, considerate, and added a lot to our stay with their knowledge of the area. We highly recommend it for an Italian getaway and are already checking our calendars for when we will be able to return!

Great Place to Relax and Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We found Cinque Querce & Mezzo to be very well presented with a house equiped with all your needs. The pool and gardens were beautiful and the hospitality of Dennis and Gilly wonderful. The Roman wine cellar was very popular with our older family members. Dennis and Gilly arranged a Italian cooking class in our kitchen which proved both informative and a great deal of fun.
The views from every window of the property are picture postcard.
On our first evening we watched the sunset while sipping on excellent Italian wine and eating fruit from the trees in the adjoining orchard.
Owners have provided a very useful list of shopping , eating and sight seeing contacts and locations in the area. We sampled a few of the ristorante's in the area which had food and views to die for.
All in all a AAA holiday rating and we were sad to leave.

Family of SIx from Scotland

We were looking for a relaxing holiday in the sun at a comfortable villa with a pool, private but not remote from local amenities and restaurants with good food and wine..and that is exactly what we got. Fantastic spacious villa, beautiful grounds, great location with stunning views,fabulous pool area, and suitable for all ages. Dennis and Gilly were very welcoming and helpful hosts who could not do enough to ensure that our stay was as comfortable and as enjoyable as it could be.
We combined relaxing days at the poolside with day trips to the likes of Sienna, Assisi and the Adriatic Coast. Wine-tasting, art&culture and fascinating old villages are all within easy reach.
We also alternated between cooking at the villa with its great BBQ area and pizza oven and dinning out and the many good quality local restaurants.The villa at night has a special ambience at its hilltop position, under the stars and with panoramic views across the Tiber valley. It was a great place to spend a holiday and I cannot recommend it highly enough. We are already planning dates for our next visit. Enjoy!

Breathtaking Villa

  • 5 of 5
This house is absolutely breathtaking with killer views! The owners were amazing and so gracious. We truly came as strangers and parted as old friends. The pictures doesn't even do justice on how gorgeous this property is. The villa is beautifully landscaped and the smell of the wildflowers was intoxicating. The house was immaculately clean and the owners went out of their way to give us a fantastic support system. Definitely worth the value and repeat visits!

Map

Car: necessary

Cinque Querce é Mezzo is situated just a 2 minute drive (2 km) from the Tuscan border. Our nearest large town is Sansepolcro in Tuscany, the birthplace of Piero Della Francesca, the renaissance painter, and Anghiari, Monterchi and Arezzo are all within a 15 - 30 minutes drive.
