My wife and I visited Italy mid-August 2013...it was a truly amazing trip! We wanted to stay close to Florence but also enjoy the Tuscan countryside we had heard so much about...That's when we came across Villa La Quercia in our search for a Private villa... La Quercia is Spectacular! The property is amazing. We would walk through the vineyards and olive groves, and just take in the incredible landscape and tranquility surrounding us. We would often just sit outside on the terrace enjoying the Tuscan air. We ate plenty of our meals outside on the terrace. The private pool was great to come home to after a long day of exploring Italy. It was both refreshing and relaxing after a long fun-filled day.
What really made our stay as great as it was, was the hospitality provided by the owner Veronica and her daughter, Marguerite...they were the best hostesses we've ever encountered during our travels...and we travel a lot. They are willing to help in any way and are sure to allow you your privacy. We highly recommend you don't pass up the opportunity to have a butlered served dinner cooked by Veronica right at the villa. She's an amazing cook! We enjoyed our first meal in Italy sitting under the Tuscan stars enjoying a four course meal (that included a bottle of the estate's own Chianti) served by a butler. It was truly one of the best meals we've ever had! And speaking of cooking...you can't pass up Veronica's cooking class either. Veronica offers cooking classes in her cooking studio that is on the property as well. On our last night at La Quercia, we took a cooking class with Veronica and she had us prepare our own 4 course dinner that we had chosen with her, including making our own pasta from scratch...the end result was mouth watering... We highly recommend La Quercia and we can't wait to go back...Thanks Veronica and Marguerite for a fantastic holiday! We have never encountered such warm and generous hosts. We hope to see you both again real soon! :-) -Eric

Je garderais de mon séjour à la Quercia la beauté des paysages, le calme de la maison, les odeurs du jardin, de la cuisine de Véronica avec toutes ses attentions qui font de ce séjour un moment merveilleux.

Veronica, thank you for an amazing week of food, friends, and discovery. We all had an amazing time, your house is beautiful, the grounds immaculate, the cooking school enlightening, and your graciousness heart warming.

Two families of four, including four college aged children, enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing vacation in this 17th century renovated villa in the heart of Tuscany. Everything from the location to the beautiful and spacious accommodations to the peace and quiet of living in your own Italian villa with an outdoor pool, created an ambience of ease and comfort throughout the seven days we stayed here. The most enjoyable part of the trip was venturing into Florence, San Gimignano, Siena, and a wine tasting excursion, and coming back to a clean and fun atmosphere. This is a place that everyone can enjoy from adults to teenagers to children (our soccer fanatic teens really enjoyed the soccer field located below the winefields in the backyard with a spectacular view!). We highly recommend this for anyone of any age looking for a relaxing, exciting, and truly authentic taste of Italy.
A great family vacation in a beautiful and relaxing setting

Villa La Quercia is comfortable and charming. We loved the private pool. We enjoyed having coffee on the patio in the morning and gathering around the kitchen table at night to discuss the day's events. We felt the location, close to Florence, provided easy access to the hill towns of central Italy. Veronica was an excellent host, baking us goodies and taking us to the best wine tasting I've ever had. Given the opportunity, we would definitely return.
I highly recommend Villa la Quercia for a stay in Italy. It is a short bus ride into Florence as well as a starting point to visit many other areas of Tuscany.
Villa la Quercia is a labor of love for Veronica and I saw it every day, The Villa is exactly what I pictured a Villa in Italy would be. It is architecturally beautiful, has magnificent views of the country side, and offers tranquility and privacy. I spent a week there with my husband and other family. Everything I needed for a comfortable stay was available from a functioning kitchen to a private, immaculate swimming pool.
Veronica, the owner, provided us with places to go for food, fun and history and I was never disappointed. She made certain we had the privacy we were looking for but also made us feel very welcome. She even baked treats for us.
I hope to go back to Villa la Quercia sometime in the future and share it with others. It is truly a pleasant retreat that we called home for a week.

Dear Veronica, what a wonderful holiday we have had in your beautiful villa. The kids have been swimming every day while us adults have indulged in wine, food & conversation to last a lifetime. Waking to the birds will be greatly missed as well the beautiful gardens, artwork and your delicious cakes! Thank you so much. We could not have asked for a more wonderful place for our family holiday. Much love and good wishes from the Sommer family

Located just south of Florence, La Quercia provides easy access to all of Tuscany. Set among the vineyards, gorgeous vistas span all directions. A blooming rose garden amid immaculate grounds adds beauty. The home offers many gathering places: a wonderful patio, a large family room, and a pool. Bedrooms are spacious and nicely appointed. Veronica, a warm and gracious host, prepares excellent breakfasts daily that include fresh juices and homemade pastries. Don't miss her cooking school!

We started coming to La Quercia in 1998 and have recommended it to family and friends over the years. Owner, Veronica Clemente, has achieved a Tuscan dream of simplicity and tranquility, served with local food and wine. The villa is decorated with elegant restraint. Butler-served meals prepared by Veronica and made from her grandmother's recipes are offered for affordable prices. The house, pool, and grounds are spotlessly clean and groomed. Be sure to take a cooking lesson in Veronica's kitchen, where the least and best cooks will be delighted.

We loved living at Villa La Quercia and will never forget the beautiful place. We have wonderful memories - of exquisite food, incredible cooking classes, great conversation, lots of laughter, and beauty all around us. Feeding the chickens, Fragola, Oreste and Manu, the soccer field full of treasures, picking lemons and herbs, the grape and olive harvest, beautiful bunches of flowers, little baby chicks, our quest for wine. Children, anxious everyday to roam the beautiful land. Our year there was so special and made Italy such an incredible experience.

Dear Veronica, thank you so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful villa!!! The beautiful sun, rolling hills and wonderful property made this trip a vacation of a lifetime. It was the perfect place to celebrate 40th birthdays and 15th wedding anniversaries - a week that will be remembered forever. Take care" Bill & Jasmine Ontario, Canada
