“The Most Beautiful Place I've Ever Stayed”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at the Fattoria Vecchia Quercia for a week at the end of June. We were a large family group of 17 celebrating being together and a couple of rather large birthdays!! Well, if turning 50 means I'd get to stay here again, bring it on, I'd turn 50 every day!!

This truly was the loveliest place to stay. The house is beautifully maintained and presented, the bedrooms were really comfortable (and cool even when it was really hot) and the kitchen was very well equipped. The best thing for me, though, were the gardens and the pool area. The view from the pool overlooking the Casentino valley and Poppi Castle is stunning, like something you'd see in a movie. The gardens are gorgeous - there are lots of different places to sit and hide if you feel like a bit of solitude, and the smells everywhere are just incredible - jasmine, curry plants, any number of herbs and flowers.

Francesca is the perfect host - she did separate cooking classes for the kids and the adults and the results were delicious! We had also arranged for her to provide breakfast for us in the morning - well, that was one of the best decisions we made. She and her team laid on the most amazing spread for us every day using homegrown and locally sourced ingredients. She couldn't have been more helpful or more welcoming.

Poppi Castle is well worth a visit and we had a lovely dinner in Arezzo one evening. We probably should have explored the region a bit more but we didn't want to leave the villa! We'd all go back there in a heartbeat - thank you, Francesca!

“Beautifully appointed, tranquil and comfortable - a real sanctuary”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I stayed here for a week with my extended family (parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, in-laws etc) - there were 17 of us at one point, but Vecchia Quercia is big enough to accomodate very large parties very comfortably. Plenty of space, loads of bathrooms, lots of sitting areas inside and out, means everyone can find a quiet spot if needed, and the eating areas are big enough for everyone to eat together. The villa is beautiful inside and out, comfortably furnished, and the gardens are just lovely. The pool area has an unbeatable view out over the valley down to the castle and village of Poppi - it's gorgeous.

Francesca and her team looked after us amazingly well, helped out with all sorts of arrangements and catering - they spoiled us every day, and went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for our stay. We owe them a huge thank you for everything.

In short - absolutely wonderful, a real bargain and a beautiful, restful spot. Enjoy.

“Perfect villa in a perfect location with a perfect host”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Everything about our stay with Francesca at Fattoria Vecchia Quercia was absolutely fantastic. The villa is beautiful, very well kept and nicely decorated with all the facilities you could need. Bedrooms are large, bathrooms are clean and modern and kitchen is well equipped. We were a party of 17 and there is plenty of room to spread out with loads of places to just relax. Gardens are lovely, as is the pool and the views are breathtaking. I would highly recommend taking the breakfast option. All the meals we had provided by Franscesca and her crew were superb. Cooking classes for both kids & adults were thoroughly enjoyed. I can't say enough nice things about Francesca. She was so helpful and friendly. We'd return tomorrow if we could.

“Wonderful villa; amazing hosts; great views.”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Our large extended family stayed here for a week in May and we were all very impressed with the villa, which has been renovated very authentically (simply, honestly and well) and is very well thought through, the beautifully maintained gardens and amazing views of Tuscan countryside. Francesca and her family, who own the place, were very helpful, around when we needed them, but never encroaching on our space, and cooked us 4 amazing evening meals and a brilliant breakfast. Can't recommend highly enough !
