To arrive at Villa Quercia, you have to drive through a mature oak forest. And that sets the tone for this glorious farmhouse conversion. Stone, brick and artisanal woodwork combine to create a rustic Tuscan borgo with its own distinct character.
That character has been amplified through a very recent restoration of its two main villas, which can be hired separately or together. In all, there are six bedrooms and space to accommodate up to 12 overnight guests.
Each has a spacious living room with a beautiful fireplace, dining room and kitchen equipped for any event. Outside, there’s a delightful fruit garden and a flower-filled patio space to enjoy dinner in the shade. A gloriously large pool completes the offering.
Previous guests have commented on how the property has helped them in their creative endeavours: writing, painting and performance. What we know is that it’s a great choice for those keen on reconnecting with nature – and therefore themselves.
Simplicity and space, light and quietude – they’re all here in abundance. Marry that to the glorious views and local historic attractions and you have a villa beautifully set up for family holidays, special occasions or even restorative retreats.
