Castello di Querceto

Castello di Querceto is a landmark of the Florentine Chianti Classico area, particularly loved by oeno-gastronomic passionates, thanks to the numerous wineries and to the local products typical of Tuscany cooking. It is an ideal place to start daily trips to the wonderful Tuscany towns: Florence is only 25 km. far, Siena and San Gimignano about 45, Arezzo about 55. and Pisa about 105. The castle is completely surrounded by the green Chianti hills, enclosed by vineyards and woods where you can relax walking in the shade of oak and chestnut threes. The estate disposes of ten apartments. Some of them are located directly in the farm centre, very close to the medieval castle, with entrance from the old stone court where the wine shop, the offices and the ancient cellar face.
