Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
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.
WI-FI Internet (available only in the area of the reception)
