Castello Ginori di Querceto


Simple rustic apartments, comfort without the frills - this farmhouse is great value. A charming timewarp - leave your car and cares behind


8 places


Sleeping from 2 – 8


Here’s something for families who want the Tuscan sun but don’t want to spend the earth. Querceto is a hamlet, a rambling medieval borgo on many levels, whose nucleus is a castle around which workers’ cottages have evolved (and in the family since 1543!). Leave the car outside the walls and enter a timewarp; the Liscis may own 15 hectares of vineyards and produce a number of important red wines but no-one is in a hurry here. The apartments will charm you: a clean plain décor in a rustic style, comfort without the frills. There are bright tartan cotton bedspreads, dark shutters to keep out the light, resuscitated floor tiles and nice old doors, simple kitchens with copper pans; the farmhouse sleeping eight (set apart with a small private pool) is brilliant value. The restaurant in the village serves traditional Tuscan dishes following the Ginori Lisci family’s old recipes, you can order fresh bread at reception and buy locally grown farm veg twice a week. The grounds (not the gardens) are yours to roam, picnic spots are close and the big swimming pool is down the steep track, surrounded by olive trees.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Cristina Sannazzaro

  • Querceto is the perfect place for nature lovers and for those who are interested in visiting famous Tuscan cities and towns such as Pisa, Florence, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Bolgheri and other charming villages of the Val di Cecina.
  • For those who love the sea, the beaches of Cecina and Bibbona are only 25 minutes away.
  • In the summer, towns around Querceto hold various festivals and events, interesting to take part if you want to know the traditions of their inhabitants, for example Calici di Stelle in Montescudaio or the Medieval Week in Volterra.
  • Querceto is also the heart of the vineyard of our family, and guests of the apartments will have the opportunity to take a guided tour of the village and the cellar, which ends with a tasting of wines and olive oil.
