A beautiful place, very nice swimmingpool, we had a very good time at Quercecchio. Also the host is very kindly, I think we will stay in the future more times at this wonderful place! We also like the rooms.

Our trip to Antica Grancia di Quercecchio was too short! We would like to spend a week in this wonderful relaxing environment. Our goal was to find a place in the Tuscan countryside to ride our mountain bikes and we were not disappointed. The rolling hills, ripe vineyards, pheasants in the fields, and the wild boars surpassed our expectations. Of course the Montalcino Brunello drew us to this location but the memories will bring us back. The rooms of Quercecchio are tastefully furnished with a rustic feel. The bed was comfortable and the cool fresh air at night was awesome. We were looking for a self-catering experience and thus enjoyed preparing our own food or visiting one of the Matteo recommended restaurants. The history of the restored 15th century monastery is rich and adds to the charm of the stay. In the rush to sample the local Brunello, don't over look the wine made onsite at Quercecchio, it is wonderful. Our room was over the oak barrels and Matteo graciously gave us a tasting and a tour. We will return for an extended stay. Grazie Matteo.

Southern Tuscany is a wonderful place to spend your holidays. Towns like Siena, Volterra, Montepulciano and Montalcino are our favourites.
We'be been looking for a nice appartment for a long time and found Agroturismo Quercecchio about 5 years ago. Since then, we're coming every year. Matteo is a fabulous host, very nice, helpful and the Agroturismo is a fantastic former monastry. It has a large pool - very refreshing when it's hot.
It is NOT a hotel, i.e., you will get a clean appartment and it won't be cleaned every day, so you're responsible for making your bed, preparing breakfast etc. ! We like this as I am annoyed by the typical hotel setup (I've seen too many hotels in my business life).
It is about 10 minutes drive to Montalcino, a fantastic town - not only because of the excellent wines. Very nice small streets, nice piazza and very good restaurants ...

It is some drive to the Sea (Grosseto about 45 minutes drive), but I like the quiet and CLEAN (I have seen some really TERRIBLE and DIRTY beaches in Italy) pool ....

Charming setting for a tastefully restored 15th century farm with all modern facilities to make your stay comfortable. The rooms are large, clean, fully equipped and the finishings are of high quality, from flooring, to ceilings to furnishing and fittings.
The pool is large, clean and equipped with tables, chairs, sunbeds and gazebos for families to relax safely with their little ones.
Matteo is a great host, speaks fluent English and will help you with anything you need, from supplies to information on the area. Although the apartments are self contained and you will need to do your own grocery shopping for the stay, you will find a nice basket for your 1st breakfast, with anything from milk, coffee, jam, tea, butter and pastries, so no need to rush to the nearest supermarket if you really want to go to sleep.
The wine mAde on the farm is of the highest quality, so you might want to get your personal supply from here.
A short drive from montalcino, half an hour from pienza and montepulciano and 1 hour from Siena. It's an ideal starting base for visiting the region.

We needed a base of operations from which to enjoy Tuscany and found Antica Grancia di Quercecchio on Trip Advisor. We stayed there for a week and enjoyed it immensely. The setting is idyllic--an old convent beautifully restored, set in a valley outside Montalcino. The agritourismo is a working vineyard, producing the famous Brunello di Montalcino wine. Matteo is so wonderful--he provided excellent recommendations for nearby restaurants and general travel advice for the region. He gave us a tour of the winery and explained the process they go through to make their wines. We were interested in taking a cooking class, so Matteo arranged for a chef to come to our apartment and teach us how to cook a delicious Tuscan dinner--it was a real treat and a highlight of our entire trip to Italy. He even gave us a bottle of his famed Brunello to enjoy with the meal. We were travelling with our daughter so we reserved a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment. It was spacious, with a large sitting room and nice kitchen area and beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside. We really loved our stay at Quercecchio.

I can't think of a better base of operations to see southern Tuscany. Quercecchio is set in an incredibly scenic area outside Montalcino. The accommodations are very comfortable, with good air conditioning and an elevator, in addition to spacious apartments. The setting is very quiet and relaxing. The pool is nice and large with plenty of lounge chairs. Matteo is, perhaps, the most gracious host I have every encounterd in my travels. He was always going above and beyond the call of duty. We are now Facebook friends and intend to keep in touch. If you are a fan of Brunello wine, this is the Holy Grail, as Quercecchio makes a great Brunello and and a nice Rosso di Montalcino. If you love history, you will love staying in a converted 15th century monastery. I highly recommend a stay here!

Driving from Florence felt a little different, we were worried that we'd get lost but Matteo made sure he met us at the top of Montalcino. He welcomed us warmly and he immediately provided us with tips of where to eat and how to best enjoy the surrounding areas, Pienza, Sienna, Montepulciano, and we sure did! Of course, we enjoyed the wine tour and Brunello de Montalcino. Our apartment was spacious and warm. We enjoyed seeing so much of the beauty that surrounded us. Matteo is such a wonderful host to a beautiful place!

Room Tip: so many wonderful views....
