“One of the most beautiful places we have ever been.”
Reviewed August 3, 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!

“Absolut amazing and breathless”

Due to our marriage we booked this estate in Poppi. During our pre-visit in April our expectations were absolutely outdone. A wonderful and pre-loved estate on the top of Poppi with breathless view over the city and adjacent area. The owners Francesca and Andrea and their family were outstanding hospitable and there were no request to much for them.

Our 7-days stay was absolute amazing and was only topped by the wedding celebratory and the delicious food Andrea and his team made for us. Absolute outstanding!!!

Francesca and family, thank You very much for everything, again. We had wonderful days in Poppi.
Mille Grazie :-) Seline and Sascha

“Perfect villa for relaxing stay with family”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We had a week at this villa with a family group of 11 with ages from 8 to 72. It has loads of room both inside and outside, a lovely pool, lots of hidden areas to sit in peace. The location is perfect, on a hill with lovely views of the nearest town, Poppi. We did some sightseeing in Arezzo, Poppi, La Verna, Florence, but it was very tempting to stay at the villa all the time. One day, Francesca and her Mum ran a cookery class for some of us and the kids loved making fresh pasta and then ravioli. We eat our food in the lovely banqueting hall. We eat all our meals outside and there was plenty of kitchen equipment, an industrial dishwasher and proper cooker etc. The villa was perfect for a group and we could have easily fitted it another 6 people! I probably wouldn't recommend it for small children because there are steps and the pool doesn't have a big shallow area. Francesca is great at helping with plans before you arrive, ie booking a restaurant and also provides lots of advice during our stay. The daily delivery from the bakery was also a great idea! We would love to come back and stay here!

“Once-in-a-lifetime experience - a Tuscan dream wedding and home away from home”
Reviewed June 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We are so grateful to Francesca and her family for the kindness and hospitality that they showed us leading up to our stay, during and even after our stay in the villa in April 2015, along with close family and friends for our wedding.

We planned our trip within four months, from Toronto, and were very busy throughout the the days leading up to the wedding and trip. Francesca was in touch with us by skype and email throughout, despite having other weddings to plan in the meantime, and was always so helpful, cheerful and generous with us in sharing ideas and resources, something we didn't find to be the case with online services or wedding planning services, and she was doing this as a villa host! She went above and beyond to help us navigate the services in Poppi, knowing that we might have trouble with speaking in Italian with local vendors.

When we got to the villa, we felt immediately like we were at home. The villa is a wonderful and private haven. We had our families, many with small infants under one or two, stay with us - and there was enough privacy for people to feel comfortable. The villa and surrounding farm were so beautiful and charming that it was like a dream to stay there.

We got married in the Poppi castle and had the reception and other events in the villa, and it was just perfect. Francesca and her family and staff were so attentive and helpful, and just really thoughtful and nice people to be around, as well. They seemed like they weren't just doing a job but loved what they do. We ordered catering for the wedding dinner and the brunch the next day and it was so delicious and everyone is still talking about how fresh and appetizing the food was.

In terms of getting there from Florence, Francesca recommended taking the highway - unfortunately, we forgot to take her advice and took the winding hills the first time - however the highway is definitely an easier route for those with children and those prone to motion sickness.

ALL of our guests felt a sense of gratitude and relief upon arriving at the villa and that sense of appreciation stayed with them throughout the rest of their vacation and long afterwards. We know that we have a once in a lifetime experience that we share with our closest loved ones, and each one of them has expressed thankfulness to us for arranging such an epic time. All we can be credited for is choosing the right villa to stay at! The villa was a perfect blend of attentive host, tasteful decor, privacy, hospitality and a beautiful and calming setting.

Overall, we just want to say thanks again to Francesca and her lovely family for the kindness and care they showed, to make our wedding and family vacation a dream and wonderful memory. We hope to come again for a reunion!
