Overall Property Description:
Fattoria Quercia al Poggio was once a rural village home to a small community of farm workers consisting of around 10 families, first share croppers then dependants of the estate. Vallombrosan monks also resided here until two centuries ago. At that time, the village was truly self sufficient: shepherds, farmers and woodcutters exchanged their goods and the remainder was then sold at the market.
Today the owners have converted the village to offer guests the chance to enjoy a truly relaxing stay immersed in the Tuscan countryside. They personally follow each phase of the wine-making process in order to achieve a quality wine, sold both locally and internationally, to satisfy lovers of a genuine Chianti Classico.
Quercia al Poggio offers guests a wide range of self-catering apartments with the choice of one, two or three bedrooms. All apartments have spacious living areas, bathrooms and fully-equipped kitchens.
The property is composed by 2 main parts: the apts "Cappella", sharing one of the 2 pols, and about 400 mt far from these, the apartments "Proneta" (these can be booked together as a single villa, with private pool, sleeping about 20 guests).
Our staff are delighted to welcome you and provide all the assistance you may require during your stay.
