Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Castiglion Fiorentino - BROLIO QUINTO

Villa built in the 19th century, cultural attractions, panoramic position,

Brolio Quinto is the ideal location for a peaceful holiday in the warm atmosphere of an old country farmhouse, beautifully preserved in its original architectural style.You can rent the top floor of this historic farmhouse with its independent access. It sleeps 8 + 2comfortably in the four bedrooms and an addition sofa-bed is available in one of the four bedrooms. The stone farmhouse,built in the 19th century, is at a height of 320m. There are panoramic views of the old castle of Montecchio and Cortona, a short drive from the farmhouse. S. Savino Mountain, Lucignano and the Trasimeno Lake are all close by, offering plenty of cultural attractions and the folklore of international renown.The farmhouse is surrounded by fully-fenced grounds of 4.5-hectares, which include a stunning private swimming-pool (6x14 m) set in a spacious, sunny position. The pool is fully equipped with beach-umbrellas, deck-chairs and sunbeds. A barbecue and other equipment are available so that you can eat in the open air.

Bio Tuscan food: Grab the unique chance to visit a typical dairy farm close to our farmhouse, which produces and sells cheese, ricotta and sheep’s cheese. “Pecorino” is the most typical traditional Tuscan cheese. Seasoned ‘pecorino’ (sheep’s cheese) is about 2.5 kg; it has a pale yellow texture and small holes. It is seasoned for at least 120 days, and has a strong and slightly spicy flavour. Fresh pecorino is about 1 kg, and has a compact white texture. Seasoning lasts for at least 20 days, though the cheese is usually eaten after 30-45 days. Ricotta is a dairy product produced by heating the whey left from cheese processing and adding pasteurised milk, whose specific origin – whether sheep, cow or both – gives pecorino its specific name (sheep’s ricotta, cow’s ricotta, mixed ricotta). The cheese, made with whey, pasteurised milk and salt, is sold immediately once it is produced. Ricotta has a soft and cream-like texture, and a sweet flavour.

Tourist attractions: Moreover the first Sunday of September the city accommodates the ancient Giostra of the Saracino, typical medieval quarrel. If you will be hosts of the Brolio Quinto farm holidays, in the months of July and August you can assist to the famous Palio of the city of Siena, which is only distant 45 km. Siena is soaked of traditions and artistic masterpieces of inestimable beauty like the Cathedral, the Communal Palace and the famous square Piazza del Campo, where takes place the Palio.More nearby we can find cities like Cortona, than in the August month she accommodates a famous market of the antique; wealth of Castiglion Fiorentino are art works which as the Church of Saint Francisco of the 1200. Castiglion Fiorentino is also the inhabited center more neighbor to the BROLIO QUINTO farm holidays.An other goal for interesting tourist routes can be Pienza,and Montepulciano with the wine quality Nobilewel of the renaissance architecture.

Bio oil: Direct sale of the estate’s products: extra-virgin oil.

The owners are glad to share with their guests, the produce from the extensive vegetable garden, with its large selection of seasonal vegetables, herbs and fruit trees.

Why Giovanna Cecchi chose Castiglion Fiorentino

My property is simply unique. Not only for its strategic location, the beautiful enclosed park, panoramic location, peace, love for detail, but mostly because it is an authentic farmhouse in a great combination between elegance and informality. My presence is very discreet, thanks to the big space can also be difficult to meet. Many of my guests said they enjoyed my suggestions and discovered the unknown routes to tourist guides ... thanks to my knowledge of the area.

I try to convey a love of nature and animals (I have 3 dogs and 1 cat), hoping to spend my guests a pleasant stay with the love I have for my work.

Hi, my property is simply unique. Not only for its strategic location, the magnificent park, the attention to detail, the silence, but also for my decision to offer an authentic farmhouse with all comforts. In fact, the Agrituirsmo was born many years ago, when the owners of the farms placed at the disposal part of the house to tourists. My presence on the farm is very discreet and is often regarded by my guests very useful. Thanks to enormous spaces, could also be awkward to meet. I try to convey a love of nature and animals (I have 3 dogs and 1 cat), hoping to spend my guests a pleasant stay with the love I have for my work.

What makes this farmhouse unique

On booking organize guided excursions with truffle dogs, including steps to clean and keeps the truffles.

Guided mountain bike tours in the surrounding areas.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wir verbrachten 2 traumhafte Wochen in Brolio Quinto. Die Ferienwohnung lässt keine Wünsche offen, tolles Ambiente mit den antiquen Möbeln, wir waren 9 Personen und hatten reichlich Platz. Toll war der große Esstisch im Wohnbereich und die Küche ist mit der Geschirrspüler und ausreichend Geschirr sehr gut ausgestattet. Die Anlage und der Poolbereich sind sehr gepflegt und lädt zum Spielen und Entspannen ein. Giovanni ist eine sehr aufmerksame und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, wir fühlten uns vom ersten Moment willkommen. Ausflugsziele gibt es reichlich, vom Grundstück aus kann man die wunderschöne Stadt Cortona sehen. Thank you Giovanna for our staying at your beautiful estate, we felt very welcome and comfortable, Monika & Ralf & kids

Sun, pool & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The estate with all its olive trees was beautifully taken care of and the pool area was very clean and nice. Giovanna let us pick fresh apricots from her trees and brought us vegetables and herbs from her garden. We bought olive oil to take with us home that was pressed from her own olives. Our stay was just what we needed with sun, relaxing, our own pool and short trips to the nearby villages and to Florence.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a week in September with the whole family, 2 adults and our 3 children aged from 23yrs to 18yrs. The whole holiday was a wonderful experience, fantastic weather (warm but with a breeze), fantastic location and a lovely farmhouse with fabulous grounds and pool. Giovanna and her parents were perfect hosts - friendly, helpful with information about local restaurants we otherwise would not have found, extremely generous with their fresh veg from the garden, providing lots of information about where to visit etc. Giovanna was even kind enough to bike with us to the local cycling path to show us the way. There is loads to do in this area - as well as the beauty of the landscape and the hill top villages, there is a very good shopping outlet - always popular with my girls! We will definitely be returning, it has been voted as one of our best holidays by the whole family.

Finns loved the place!

  • 5 of 5

Two families from Finland rented this beautiful farmhouse late June. Fourd kids, ages 7, 6, and two 4-year olds loved the place. Garden was lovely and the fence was great, kids couldn't go too far. Pool was also fantastic. We loved the peaceful atmosphere and the location - easy to travel with rental cars. Owner and her parents (who we met) were extremely helpful.

We are certainly coming back next summer!

Fantastic Villa and Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four, with two children under five and had fantastic time staying in Brolio V. The property is in an excellent location for sight-seeing throughout Tuscany and Umbria. There are many fantastic sights within an hour's drive. The property itself was beautifully clean and has all of the essentials, plus more, that you require for a self catering holiday especially when you have young children. Our kids just loved the pool and you wouldn't beleive the wonderful views from the house and the pool. You can see Cortona in the distance!

The owners were very friendly and helpful and gave us some great vegetables from their vegetable garden.

We just loved the place and would completely recommend this as a place to stay in Tuscany.

Castiglion Fiorentino is also the inhabited centre more neighbour to the farm holidays. An other goal for interesting tourist routes can be Pienza, a jewel of the renaissance architecture. But not even Chianciano Terme, elegant thermal station the much famous for its curative waters.
