“The most amazing experience!!”
Reviewed 6 July 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We booked Vecchia Quercia for one week for our wedding in May. From the very beginning, Francesca was incredibly accommodating, and went above and beyond for us every step of the way. She is very responsive, connected within her community (which was helpful as she put us in touch with a number of people we used as vendors for the wedding), and just an all around delight. The property itself is just a dream. They take great care in maintaining the grounds and the views and accommodations were perfect. Francesca runs a catering business and was happy to plan meals, provide breakfast, etc. and their food was AMAZING! The town of Poppi is a very short distance away from the Villa and is absolutely adorable, quiet and full of friendly locals. I can't imagine spending this week anywhere else! Thank you Francesca (and family!) for the most incredible experience ever!

We were a group of six couples visiting Italy to celebrate our 60th birthdays; we stayed at La Vecchia Quercia for two weeks, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The property is perfect for larger groups like ours - we required at least six bedrooms with their own bathrooms, a large living area, well equipped kitchen and spacious, private grounds. We received all this and much more. It is hard to imagine a more beautiful, rustic place - somewhere 12 people could celebrate together, but also find totally private nooks to relax and while away the day.

The manager, Francesca is a gem - always happy to assist with advice, restaurant or tour bookings etc - even offering to accompany one of our group to the local hospital when he was unwell. We enjoyed Francesca's cooking on a couple of memorable occasions, and would highly recommend this to any future guests.

Poppi is a lovely place - the walk from the villa to the castle along a quiet country lane is a highlight, and dinner at the pizzeria beside the bridge is a real treat.

I could rave on about La Vecchia Quercia - suffice to say that it is the quintessential Tuscan experience, one not to be missed.

We were a group of 17 and had an amazing holiday. The property and location were fantastic and Francesca was so friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend the catering- we had 4 meals over the fortnight we were there and they were all delicious. The kids also had a cookery class making pasta which went down a storm. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property

We stayed here with our children, and grandchildren, to celebrate out Ruby Wedding Anniversary. It was a fabulous week. Francesca and her lovely family made our stay special. The main house and separate 2 bedroom addition were spacious, well furnished and comfortable. It was hot so the pool with fab views was brilliant . Much time was also spent playing table-tennis. The facilities were good for cooking and barbecuing too.

Francesca cooked our anniversary dinner & our farewell meal too that coincided with our 8-year old grandson's birthday - good food, well-presented & plentiful.

Loads to do roundabout - Poppi with the old town & castle, Bibbiena, Arezzo, Cortona & the National Park.

“One of the most beautiful places we have ever been.”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We are a big family (from 52 years to 9 mnths) who have been benefited from spending 2 weeks at Francesca wonderful place Fattoria la Vecchia Quercia. The place had everything we could ever need and was actually better than some major expectations we had ahead. The house, pool area, views, etc. simply must be experienced. The hosts (Francesca and her mother) was always helpful and very pleasant to get acquainted with. Francesca and her husband also made us 2 wonderful Tuscan meals at the location. In addition we attended to cookery course and learned a lot about Tuscan culinary traditions. Briefly, Fattoria la Vecchia Quercia must be experienced to understand how wonderful the place is.

Words cannot describe the wonderful memories we have of our week at Fattoria la Vecchia Quercia.
My husband and I happened upon this special place while searching for a wedding venue in Italy and after our initial communication with Francesca we both felt sure that this was "the one". As soon as we arrived we knew we had made the right choice. The property is perched on a hill outside the town providing exquisite views of the castle and surrounds - a perfect setting for a wedding or family get-together. The villa is comfortable and tastefully decorated, with an attention to detail and character that makes it stand out, while at the same time feeling homely and welcoming. Despite the fact that the villa was full, there was plenty of space and we never felt crowded.
Francesca is a very special person and we were so lucky to meet her. She helped along every step of the way - booking the ceremony in the castle, giving us contacts for celebrants, music and transport, even coming to translate at the florist and bakery in the days before the wedding. It is so rare to find someone who is so efficient, yet still so warm and welcoming. We immediately felt at home and enjoyed every second of our stay, especially our wedding day which went without a hitch. The delicious food, ambience, music and wine made for a wonderful experience for us and our friends and family.
Another highlight I must mention was the beautiful dinner Francesca and her mother prepared for us the weekend we arrived…we were so sorry we did not have time to do a cooking class as the food was delicious.
I could not recommend Fattoria la Vecchia Quercia more highly. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer - we are already planning our 5 year anniversary return visit!
