About the property

Villa near Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy - Peaceful Farmhouse, 5 Minutes Walk To Casentino Golf Club

The farmhouse is perfect to spend holidays with your family or in a group. You can choose a vacation in total privacy but at the same time, on request, you can have the services of a 'private' hotel with personal chef, cleaning ladies, cooking classes, baby sitter...and much more. The villa is surrounded by a private oak tree forest that produce many black truffles. The ancient Tuscan materials like wood, stone and terracotta give rise to a villa that combines modern comforts such as Satellite TV, free WIFI internet connection, private heated pool and the authentic taste of a rural Tuscan villa. In the panoramic garden there is a BBQ, a wooden oven and private park. Our family garden produces potatoes, tomatoes, courgette, beans, pepper and different fruits like apples, cherry, figs, walnuts.

Our farm restaurant is open for guests staying at the villa (breakfast and dinner on demand), and to friends and family of our guests during special events as weddings, birthdays, parties...According to Tuscan law and to our philosophy, in the restaurant we serve just 100% Tuscan certified products and wine. The hall has capacity of 70 guests. Fattoria La Vecchia Quercia is a farmhouse classified by Tuscany Region with three 'ears of wheat', the maximum attainable under the law.

About Francesca Panci

Hi, my name is Francesca. I was born in Poppi. 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) 3 years ago. Now we are very happy to do it, it's so exciting spending time with our guests. I live with Andrea, my husband, since 7 years.

Francesca Panci purchased this villa in 1980

Why Francesca Panci chose Poppi

My family bought the villa and the farm because we wanted to change our life, living in a quiet and green place and work on the farm.

What makes this villa unique

I guess my Villa has the best view on the Valley, trust me! And the Golf course is very close, 5 minutes by foot. I'm sure that Poppi and Casentino Valley are really nice and in "Tuscany style", but less expensive and not so full of tourists like other place in the region.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had one of the best vacations ever. The villa was perfect, the views outstanding and the attention from the owners went way beyond our expectations. Our kids enjoyed a daily visit to their farm, they supplied us with delicious fresh produce from their farm each morning and even brought us fresh bread every morning from the local bakery. We enjoyed a day trip to La Verna and the restaurant there is quite nice too. A visit to Poppi castle is a must, of course. We're glad to have found Fattoria La Vecchia Quercia! - Nanhi Sing, USA

We are all missing Poppi a lot. Thank you so much for making our holiday such fun and for your and your family’s wonderful hospitality. - Seema Arora Jonsson, Sweden

Have been thinking about you and what a wonderful vacation all of us had in your villa. I want to thank you and your parents for everything, I do hope I can come back someday. - Brinda Dutt, India.
