Farmhouse: Our main crop is the olive tree, from which we obtain a great product quality thanks to the passion and the time spent working on it. The extra virgin olive oil is certified by us controlling the entire production cycle, from the planting of trees, until the extraction of the precious nectar and thanks to strong experience and passion handed down to us by our father.
The farmhouse Palazzolo delle Querce is located in the heart of Tuscany in the province of Siena (Crete Senesi), between Val di Chiana and Val d'Orcia (both Unesco Heritage). In this wonderful area, well protected by the might of winds and made picturesque by the bulk of oak trees, rises the ancient watchtower Palazzolo delle Querce. Ancient documents attest the existence of the watchtower since the first years of sixteenth century. Characterized by the medieval tower, Palazzolo delle Querce was a must for those who, moved by social and commercial purposes, had to tread the path that connected the ancient Etruscan town of Chiusi to the walls of Montepulciano. Founded as watchtower between the old trade routes of Tuscany, this structure becomes later a small monastery where the monks, thanks to the peacefulness of the area, devoted themselves to prayer, to sheep and the cultivation of vegetable gardens. In its continuous metamorphosis, the structure became for a short time an elementary school and later farmhouse where the farmers began to transform and enhance crops of grapes and olives that still characterize the local landscape crossed by the streets of Nobile wine.
In just five minutes you can reach Montepulciano and Acquaviva, towns well served with supermarkets, bars and restaurants. The public transportation are lacking, so we suggest to traveling by car. The nearest train station is Montepulciano Station, about 10 km from the farmhouse. The area is rich of both public and private thermal baths (Chianciano Terme, Bagno Vignoni, Sant'Albino, San Casciano dei Bagni, Bagni San Filippo, Rapolano Terme and Bagni di Petriolo) and offers the opportunity for guests to enjoy relaxing and regenerating treatments.Get the full listing »
