We stayed one week to celebrate our family's Italian heritage - The houses and property exceeded all of our expectations. We had 12 people in our group. The house was very spacious, the kitchen had everything we needed (even had cooking class one day), the rooms we very spacious and the bathrooms modern (whew! :). The property and view we beautiful and the pool was definitely utilized heavily. The book of information was very helpful to find places close by to each and grocery shop. I really can't express how much we enjoyed our time there - would definitely recommend it and go again ourselves.

Happy Guest from USA

I was one of the fortunate people who got to spend 3 weeks at Villa Quercia from mid Sept to early Oct.. What a treasure. The location was perfect for exploring the hill towns and also taking the train into Florence and Rome. Since our group loves to eat and cook, we really enjoyed the spacious and well equiped kitchen and outdoor grill. I even took advantage of your pool. Your notebook with travel tips and house instructions became our bible. 3 weeks was the perfect amount of time as we got to feel like part of the neighborhood and were "regulars" at Pentimento. So many great memories.

Pat was extraordinarily helpful, we got to feel like she was part of our group. Please let her know how appreciated she was.

Thanks again for providing such a dream vacation.

New Hampshire - Three Weeks at Villa La Quercia

  • Submitted: Dec 4, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
Our group of 10 spent a couple of years planning a 3-week vacation in Italy, and we needed a spacious, comfortable villa to use as a home base for touring and relaxing. We researched a dozen places in Umbria and southern Tuscany, voted on our favorites, and selected Villa La Quercia. It was perfect. Outstanding location, central to many hill towns, and close to the train line to Rome and Florence. The villa and cottage had plenty of space for our group. The rooms were comfortable, there was plenty of common space, the terrific kitchen easily accommodated us for cooking and dining, and the pool and outdoor patio were just what we were looking for. We had complete privacy with beautiful views, but just a few minutes drive to two local villages and 10 minutes to the walled lakefront town of Castiglione del Lago. The countryside was great for long walks and for bike rides to the nearby towns. The bike shop in Castiglione del Lago rented bikes for a day or a week at very reasonable rates. Ken and Danica were easy to work with before and after our stay, and their local manager Patricia was more than helpful. We used their local reference book constantly, especially the recommendations for restaurants and the winery where we could fill up empty bottles with good but extremely inexpensive wine. We made multiple visits to the neighboring family-run farmhouse restaurant, and also loved Piccola Trattoria Guastini restaurant in Valiano, about a 15-minute drive from the villa. We cooked at the villa about every third night, and there were a couple of good grocery stores and a good butcher shop in Castiglione del Lago. We also liked the bakery and the pizza restaurant in the local village. Overall, the villa and the location exceeded our expectations, and was just the right home base for a memorable trip. We would highly recommend it for anyone planning a stay in central Italy.

Pre wedding family holiday!!

  • Submitted: Oct 15, 2012

WOW WOW WOW!! This home away from home was a true delight. We had the most wonderful time. I stayed here with my mum and sisters, brother in law and my niece and nephew for the week leading up to my wedding in Tuscany. There was 7 adults and 2 kids in total. Ken the owner has thought of everything and provided us with so much helpful information about the area, restaurants, supermarkets etc. The house was very well equipped, including high chairs and cots for the kids. The house is very spacious, (more than enough room for us all), beautifully decorated and definitely has the homely and luxurious feel .The large kitchen has every possible appliance you could wish for. The beds are super comfortable. The showers are powerful, with no shortage of hot water. The large inviting pool where we spent the most part of our day was spotlessly clean (a gardener tends to the grounds and the pool regularly). There are a large number of comfortable sunloungers, and the surrounding views including the lake make for a truly relaxing experience. On our first night we went to the neighbours restaurant, a five minute walk, the food was excellent and was perfect for the first night. We did a big shop in the supermarket, (there is a big freezer in the kitchen and an additional one in the garage) and ate outside at the big comfortable table under the beautiful pergola which was the "piece de resistance". Our nights were spent chilling, eating and enjoying the amazing wine. We took advantage of the bbq for a few of the nights, there is also plenty of outdoor lighting. The nights outside in this serene place were so perfect. There is also a TV room with a huge TV and equally huge DVD collection. The set up of the accommodation was perfect for us as there is an additional beautiful cottage with two bedrooms, where the children and their Mum and Dad stayed, but it would be perfect for any members of a group wanting a little extra privacy. The trampoline provided great fun. There are plenty of places to sneak off to if you fancy getting away from it all. Once you enter the impressive electric gates and make your way up the drive, you know you are in for a treat and you won't be disappointed. Simply heaven and we would highly recommend a stay.................Can't wait to go back!!

Notes:
The farmhouse has a beautiful vine covered pergola which is ideal for al fresco dining. Positioned off the large country kitchen, it is south facing and is next to the pool area. A magnificent oak tree in the north side of the farmhouse offers shade throughout most of the day and is a beautiful spot for relaxation and reading. The guest cottage has a covered portico which can be a cool retreat from the activity of the pool area. We are the last inhabited house on the country lane and so the surroundings are very peaceful. The lane is wonderful for early morning or evening strolls - part of the lane is flanked by matured oak forests in which you are free to roam. The lane is very quiet and apart from the odd tractor it is seldomly used by other vehicles. The farmhouse has a water filtration system - so beautiful clean drinking water is available with negates the need to purchase bottled water.
