Dream house in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Casa Querceto!

Simone was very helpful and friendly host. We had dinner prepared by him and Annalisa on the evening of our arrival, and it was so great that we booked dinner for two more evenings.

The house is exactly as shown in photos. Although the photos don't do justice to the views: they are amazing. Terrace and pool were our favorite spots. Casa Querceto is strikingly calm and quiet place, really great place for a relaxing holiday.

Highly recommended!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We can't forget our two week long stay at Casa Querceto!

The house is very old but the apartment was well equipped, and plenty big enough for the five of us. The pool was great, and there was also a large garden where we were able to use a BBQ. The terrace looking south was the stand out feature for us as we sat out there most evenings.

Simone is an excellent manager who manages to be both helpful and discreet, which I think is a perfect balance. On the first night they offered to cook for us, it was easily one of the best meals we have had, and the price was very reasonable.

You need a car to stay here, the windy road up was a challenge the first time but after that it was fine.

This is the perfect place if you are looking for somewhere to relax or for a base to explore Tuscany, we did both and had a brilliant holiday. I would not hesitate to recommend this place, it is original and charming and the perfect Tuscan retreat.

About Simone Pieralli

Hello folks! I am Simone, a friend of the owner (mr.Graziano), and I am helping him to rent his beautiful house. I am the one that will reply to your emails and hopefully 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 :)

Simone Pieralli purchased this farmhouse in 1960

Why Simone Pieralli chose Loro Ciuffenna

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.
