We have just spent 5 nights in the beautiful Abate apartment at Antica Gracia di Querecchio.
Matteo, the property manager, was an outstandingly good communicator from our first email contact through to meeting us on arrival and directing us to places of interest and local restaurants. We both enjoyed his interesting tour of the onsite wine-making operation.
From the stunning scenery over green fields and vineyards to distant mountains, or the twinkling lights at night from nearby hill settlements we could not have wished for better views from our apartment.
Although it is about 15 mins drive from town we didn't find this a problem except on Liberation Day weekend when it was impossible to find a park at any of the hilltop towns. (Avoid visiting on the weekend of the 25th of April if you possibly can)
We would reccommend making this your base for a trip to Southern Tuscany
