The use of this technique gives the interiors a unique feel, rustic yet elegant. The floors are covered with Florentine porcelain tiles. The apartments of “Podere Querceto” are a perfect combination between the comforts of a modern house and the traditional architectural design typical of Tuscany.

The Querceto farmhouse is an oasis of relaxation in the centre of Val’Orcia, perched on a hill overlooking the beautiful town of Pienza. Upon opening the door of your individual apartment within the farmhouse, you will feel as though you are in a renaissance painting.
Situated on the top of a green hill, the current house was built upon the remains of an old 1300s building, which was demolished and then rebuilt at the behest of Pope Sixtus V, pre-1600.
The current planning and building has given the farmhouse estate a new lease of life. It is a new building that adheres to the original architectural style, using the same top-quality Tuscan building materials used in the 1600s, for example, Florentine terracotta tiles and wooden beams. Great attention has been paid to such details but all modern comforts have also been included, such as a natural swimming pool.
The large farmhouse will be divided into 6 apartments which range from 80 to 165 sqm. Almost all of them have two floors and a large private garden. Each apartment has its own private entrance, as well as its parking space situated away from the front of the building so as not to ruin the magic atmosphere of the house- front. The estate is much enhanced by a natural swimming pool: a pool of water with its own natural ecological system of purification, thus blending in nicely with the surrounding environment.
