About Francesca Panci

My name is Francesca and I was born in Poppi, Tuscany. I studied communication and mass media in Urbino, London and Copenhagen. I worked as a journalist in Venice for 4 years. Then I decided to came back to Poppi to rent the villa, to work in our family farm and, at the same time, to write for art magazine. Gigi, my dad, and Novella, my mum, are the bosses of the farm. We decided to start with Agriturismo (to rent a villa in a farm) 5 years ago. I live with Andrea, my husband, since 8 years.

Francesca Panci purchased this farmhouse in 1985

What makes this farmhouse unique

Best view of the valley and Poppi Castle!

Like a fairytale. Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5
After reading all the fantastic reviews, we chose Vecchia Quercia as the location for our wedding reception--and the place where our close family would stay leading up to the big day. We had spent several days conducting online research and when we found this place and started corresponding with Francesca over a year ago, we just knew it was right. We had never been to Poppi and were definitely taking our chances by planning a destination wedding at a place we had never been, but from the first email from Francesca, we had a gut feeling that we were making the right choice. And we sure did!! When we arrived at the villa, we discovered that, unlike the typical experience, the pictures did not even do justice to the place. It was twice as beautiful as we imagined!!
Our wedding was in the village at the Poppi Castle. Francesca was so kind to put us in touch with everyone we needed to ensure that our wedding was perfect--a photographer, DJ, cook... She personally went to great lengths to help us--for which we will be eternally grateful. Francesca grew up on the property as a child. Her parents now live in a house off to the side of the property (you have total privacy and never really feel that they are there). Francesca now manages the place. She is also an up and coming chef herself and spent the whole week working w the chef we hired to prepare our wedding meal. On the night of the wedding, everything was perfect, thanks to Francesca.
Re the property itself, we would love to one day return w family/friends. We traveled throughout Italy afterwards but concluded that poppi was our favorite place. It is a very beautiful quaint medieval town, off the beaten track. The town doesn't receive many tourists, which we loved. I recommend the villa without hesitation to anyone!

Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house a week in July and had a perfect time. We were 4 couples/families, 13 people in total. The house and garden is beautiful, even better than in the pictures. Very quiet location with a nice view overlooking the valley and the village. The owners are extremely helpful; we got home made cakes, bread from the baker in the village brought in every morning, and we were even invited to join in on a truffle trip. And we got a couple of the truffles and the receipe how to prepare them as a starter. Will recommend this place to everyone

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5
We rented this villa for a week in April and had the most amazing time. It's even better than the pictures suggest! It's in a completely secluded spot with wonderful views of the countryside from all over. The pool was fantastic especially with the heating on. Each and every room was tastefully decorated and there was honestly nothing left to be desired. The hostesses, Francesca and her mum Novella, were absolutely lovely - they went out of their way to welcome us and made sure we were all comfortable. We also had cooking lessons at the villa which I definitely recommend (get her to make the tiramisu!). Poppi is a quaint little village with a delightful castle 5 mins away by car - definitely worth a dekko. We also drove to Florence and Pisa - some 3 hours away. Car is obviously a must. We were a group of eight 30-somethings, but this would also be ideal for families with young kids. The villa is arranged over three levels so there is lots of privacy as well. If I go back to Poppi, this is where I'll be staying!
