About the property

Terraces, Garden, Stunning View! Very Peaceful, Nearest Town 4km, Florence 45

Casa Querceto is an historic farm complex that sits nestled into the hillside slopes of Pratomagno mountains, among olive groves and wooks, and enjoys majestic, breathtaking views over the whole Valdarno valley, far up to the first Chianti hills. It is just 50' from Florence, 45' from Arezzo and just 5' from the nearest town, Castelfranco di Sopra.

The main building dates back to the 1700s and many of its original features are still present including grand fireplaces, antique terracotta floorings, oak beamed ceilings, cloistered external terraces and the olive press on the ground floor; the furniture is mostly hand-made and antique. The house is surrounded by aromatic lavender and rosemary bushes. This is not a country hotel in disguise: Casa Querceto is a real, old-fashioned Tuscan house and it has kept its original character (with all the pros and cons), for a relaxed, family style stay!

Casa Querceto is a huge 200sqm apartment that occupies the whole first floor of the main building, and it features:

- a kitchen (well equipped) with a fireplace

- a dining room

- a salon with sofas, TV and books

- a very large salon with sofas and a large traditional fireplace

- a terrace outside where you can eat & relax 'al fresco'

- two bedrooms with double beds, one of which has a private terrace with an incredible view

- a bedroom with two single beds

- two bathrooms (one has a bathtub, both have showers)

- one or two single beds can be added

This house can sleep 6/8 persons

(It can be rented together with another 2 bedrooms house in the same property, sleeping up to a total of 10/12 persons. The two houses share the swimming pool. Price shown is for the rental of Casa Querceto only; if you want to rent the other one too please make an inquiry.)

The swimming pool is approx. 15x5 meters and it is equipped with sunbeds and parasol.

Do not miss our Tuscan dinners, homemade by us only with fresh and local products, and the vegetables from our garden! On request are available too: food & wine tastings, personal chef service, Shiatsu therapy massage.

Enjoy the place, the sights, the history, the local attractions, the food and the wine at your own pace and treat yourself to the best local products! Have a perfect relaxing break soaking up the sun in this wonderful part of the country!

We are the housekeepers, a 40yo couple, and from March to November we live in the property in another independent house; we will be on site to take care of it (cutting grass, cleaning the pool, ecc.) and eventually to help you enjoy the stay if you knock at our door! But we like our privacy and will respect yours. The swimming pool and garden are for guests' private use only.

About Simone Pieralli

Hello folks! I am Simone, a friend of the owner (mr.Graziano, a retired famous journalist), and I am helping him to keep and rent his beautiful house. I am the one that will reply to your emails and welcome you here on your arrival! I will be happy to help you have a wonderful holiday in Tuscan, giving you all the informations you may need. Please do not hesitate to ask me! See you soon :)

Why Simone Pieralli chose Arezzo Area

This is a very special place. We are 400mt asl, on the slopes of the Pratomagno mountain (also called 'the paradise of hikers'), with a really stunning view overlooking the whole Valdarno valley, surrounded by oak woods and olive groves, in a wonderful setting... just imagine the silence, birds singing, the chirping of cicadas in the hot tuscan summer... enjoying all this on the shady terrace of a real ancient farmhouse, where you can smell the typical scent of the houses of this kind, the chestnut wood beams on the roof, the stone walls heated by the sun, of rosemary and lavender bushes, the old cellar where the old olive stone mill is yet...

What makes this farmhouse unique

The highlight of the place is its position: it is 'on its own' but at the same time you can go everywhere in a while: the nice and tiny Castelfranco di Sopra is just 4 km away, the big towns of Valdarno (San Giovanni, Montevarchi, Figline) and the A1 motorway toll at a 10'-15' drive! Florence is just 45', Arezzo 30' and Siena 1 hour. Staying here will allow you to choose every day between a complete relax and visiting the best of Tuscany very easily.

Old world charm, quiet location, central Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

A charming villa set amongst olive, nut and fruit trees. Within an hour of most major spots such as Florence, Sienna, San Gimagnamo (a bit further) Badia coltibuono etc.

Very roomy and ideal for 3 couples. Well equipped with all basic needs with swimming pool very relaxing on hot days. Approach is a touch rough, but take it slow and no issues. Grand vista over the valley etc. Highly recommended for a rustic stay for a week or more. Great value

Wonderful house with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house situated high in the mountains with stunning views. The interior is fantastic and the pool area is nice. The only thing we were missing was a nice outdoor terass with a big dinner table. Service was excellent and the couple that runs the place made us a wonderful dinner for a reasonable price very nice one night. You need a strong car to get up and down the hills but it is lovely.

Valdarno valley, the area between Florence, Chianti and Arezzo is famous for its oil, its wine and great food, like 'fiorentina' steak. Its rolling hills are covered with olive groves and vineyards, it has plenty of beautiful restored historical buildings, including many castles and abbeys; and it is close to the National Park of the Casentino Forest. All these features contribute to its charm and serene country atmosphere but it is in easy reach of towns such as Arezzo, Florence and Siena.

The area is safe and quiet, very peaceful, rich in historical attractions; perfect location for walking and mountain-bike. SPA town, Rapolano Terme, is 30 minutes away. Nearest village (Castelfranco) with many small shops and a supermarket is 4 km away! 'The Mall', one of the biggest outlet in Italy, is just 20 km from here.

Podere Casarotta will be your luxurious, comfortable and relaxing starting point for visiting Tuscany! Whatever you are looking for: art, history, culture, parks and nature, wine and food routes, or just perfect relax, you will find them all at hand!
