Immerse yourself in a Tuscan dream. Spend your holidays at Brolio Quinto!

Our farmhouse will welcome you in a wonderful setting, full of beauty, tastes and events to live an unforgettable experience with your loved ones.

The farmhouse (called Brolio Quinto) is the ideal location for a peaceful holiday in the warm atmosphere of an old country farmhouse, beautifully preserved in its original architectural style.You can rent the top floor of this historic farmhouse with its independent access. It sleeps 8 + 2 comfortably in the four bedrooms and an addition sofa-bed is available in one of the four bedrooms. The stone farmhouse, built in the 19th century, is at a height of 320m. There are panoramic views of the old castle of Montecchio and Cortona, a short drive from the farmhouse. Monte San Savino, Lucignano and the Trasimeno Lake are all close by, offering plenty of cultural attractions and the folklore of international renown. The farmhouse is surrounded by fully-fenced grounds of 4.5-hectares, which include a stunning private swimming-pool (6x14 m) set in a spacious, sunny position. The pool is fully equipped with beach-umbrellas, deck-chairs and sunbeds. A barbecue, a open kitchen and other equipment are available so that you can eat in the open air. Please see the attached pictures...!!!

At about 1 Km from the farmhouse there is the cyclo/pedestrian route of the Canale Maestro della Chiana, which links Arezzo to Chiusi and reaches the archaeological site of Sodo, in Cortona. It is a 62 +12 km route, properly equipped and protected for those who like to travel slowly, cycling or walking.

The ancient road used for both canal and lock maintenance is, in fact, a natural track without any height or level differences which makes it particularly suitable for sport tourism with the family.

Farmhouse Brolio Quinto was established more than 10 years ago in the heart of the Val di Chiana. To this day, it includes all the features an authentic farmhouse should have: in fact, it is a farm which operates in the tourism industry, offering board and lodging.

This business was created to support the agricultural and livestock sector and is regulated by a specific national law which determines how the farm should host the guests.

One of my four dogs is a sweet Lagotto, the breed used for the truffle hunt, named Blich, trained as a sniffer when he was a puppy, who often found fragrant Scorzone truffles in the inner garden of the farm.

GUIDED TRIPS IN RESERVES

Those who love nature and good cuisine can enjoy trips with professional truffle hunters and sniffer dogs, with notions about their cleaning and preservation.

Tourist attractions: Brolio Quinto is in the heart of the genuine tuscan countryside and joins to the peace of its landscapes in which there are gorgeous art cities. Arezzo is only 20 kilometers away, where every first Sunday of the month, is carried out an important market of the antique.

Moreover the first Sunday of September the city accommodates the ancient Giostra of the Saracino, a typical medieval quarrel. If you make your journey in the months of July and August, you can attend to the famous Palio of the city of Siena, which is only 45 km from here.

Siena is soaked of traditions and artistic masterpieces of inestimable beauty like the Cathedral, the Communal Palace and the famous square Piazza del Campo, where takes place the Palio.

More nearby, and not less interesting, you can find cities like Cortona and Castiglion Fiorentino, two beautiful Etruscan towns full of art, events and folklore. Castiglion Fiorentino is also the closest inhabited center from the BROLIO QUINTO farmhouse.

Other interesting tourist destinations are Pienza, a jewel of the renaissance architecture, Chianciano Terme, elegant thermal station, famous for its curative waters, and Montalcino for its most valuable wine quality (Brunello, Nobile di Montepulciano).

Bio oil: Direct sale of the estate’s products: extra-virgin oil.

The owners are glad to share with their guests, the produce from the extensive vegetable garden, with its large selection of seasonal vegetables, herbs and fruit trees.

About Giovanna Cecchi

Hello, I LOVE DOGS................as you can see from my photo. I am 49 and I moved from Florence to this great place. I like my job very much and I hope you will feel happy at my place.

Giovanna Cecchi purchased this Farmhouse in 2011

Why Giovanna Cecchi chose Brolio

My property is simply unique. Not only for its strategic location, the beautiful enclosed park, panoramic location, peace, love for detail, but mostly because it is an authentic farmhouse in a great combination between elegance and informality. My presence is very discreet, thanks to the big space can also be difficult to meet. Many of my guests said they enjoyed my suggestions and discovered the unknown routes to tourist guides... thanks to my knowledge of the area. I try to convey the love of nature and animals (I have 4 dogs and 1 cat), making every effort needed to make sure my guests have a pleasant stay.

What makes this Farmhouse unique

On booking we organize guided excursions with truffle dogs, including steps showing how to clean and keep the truffles. Guided mountain bike tours in the surrounding areas. Guided tours in Cortona, Castiglion Fiorentino, Arezzo, etc.

The villa is set in 5 acres of private grounds with a wonderful swimming pool, open air kitchen, olive groves and a vegetable garden which Giovanna encourages her guests to make full use of. The villa itself is comfortably furnished with original Tuscan furniture, the kitchen reasonably well equipped but we spent most of our time outdoors enjoying the pool and BBQ kitchen. Giovanna lives on site so is on hand to deal with any queries and offer advice as to where to go and what to see in the area. We would highly recommend this villa for a relaxing, get away from it all holiday.

                                                                      Giovanna's estate (not house) is just a wonderful place to experience true Tuscan peace and tranquility. Placed between Cortona, Montepulciano and Arezzo makes it ideal for day expeditions. The guests have the 2nd level for use which is lovely furnished giving it an authentic atmosphere. Kitchen was practical and had all the necessary equipment. The only thing to be aware of is that there is no AC. We stayed during a hot period, but managed OK. I would still give this property an easy 5-star.

                                                                      The outdoors was the absolute best! A nice outdoor kitchen (grill, sink, gas boiler plates) with a great large seating was ideal for all our outdoor meals. The pool was GREAT: really big, nice surroundings, very clean and with fantastic view to Cortona - I miss it already!

                                                                      And Giovanna is just a darling! So helpful and kind. Thank you, Giovanna! You made it a perfect ending for our vacation.

                                                                      - Fattoria Santa Vittoria; we tried several winery visits but the insight, service, true dedication and total experience was outstanding. Not even willing to charge the visit is remarkable so PLEASE buy a lot of wine. Don't leave this place without buying their Vinsanto .

                                                                      - Urban Bikery in Montepulciano; rent el-bikes for a day and experience the Tuscan scenery, villages and winery from the seat of an el-bike. You will not regret this!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

The house is very comfortable, tastefully furnished with plenty of space both indoors and outdoors. It also has a big, lovely swimming pool and large garden. It is a perfect base to explore Tuscany. The owner Giovanna was very friendly and extremely helpful. I highly recommend Giovanna'place, we would definetly stay there again!

                                                                      Brolio Quinto is in the heart of the genuine tuscan countryside and joins to the peace of its landscapes in which there are gorgeous art cities. Arezzo is only 20 kilometers away, where every first Sunday of the month, is carried out an important market of the antique. Moreover the first Sunday of September the city accommodates the ancient Giostra of the Saracino, a typical medieval quarrel. If you make your journey in the months of July and August, you can attend to the famous Palio of the city of Siena, which is only 45 km from here. Siena is soaked of traditions and artistic masterpieces of inestimable beauty like the Cathedral, the Communal Palace and the famous square Piazza del Campo, where takes place the Palio. More nearby, and not less interesting, you can find cities like Cortona and Castiglion Fiorentino, two beautiful Etruscan towns full of art, events and folklore. Castiglion Fiorentino is also the closest inhabited center from the BROLIO QUINTO farmhouse. Other interesting tourist destinations are Pienza, a jewel of the renaissance architecture, Chianciano Terme, elegant thermal station, famous for its curative waters, and Montalcino for its most valuable wine quality (Brunello, Nobile di Montepulciano). For the fishing lovers there is a private lake for calm days dedicated to the fishing sport. While for the golf lovers we can arrange a tour to a course with 18 holes called “Conte Ugolino” near Florence.
