Our farmhouse will welcome you in a wonderful setting, full of beauty, tastes and events to live an unforgettable experience with your loved ones.
The farmhouse (called 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.
At about 1 Km from the farmhouse is the cyclo/pedestrian route of the Canale Maestro della Chiana, which links Arezzo to Chiusi and reaches the archaeological site of Sodo, in Cortona. It is a 62 +12 km route, properly equipped and protected for those who like to travel slowly, cycling or walking.
The ancient road used for both canal and lock maintenance is, in fact, a natural track without any height or level differences which makes it particularly suitable for sport tourism with the family.

Farmhouse Brolio Quinto was established more than 10 years ago in the heart of the Val di Chiana. To this day, it includes all the features an authentic farmhouse should have: in fact, it is a farm which operates in the tourism industry, offering board and lodging.
This business was created to support the agricultural and livestock sector and is regulated by a specific national law which determines how the farm should host the guests.
One of my four dogs is a sweet Lagotto, the breed used for the truffle hunt, named Blich, trained as a sniffer when he was a puppy, who often found fragrant Scorzone truffles in the inner garden of the farm.
GUIDED TRIPS IN RESERVES
Those who love nature and good cuisine can enjoy trips with professional truffle hunters and sniffer dogs, with notions about their cleaning and preservation.

Giovanna Cecchi purchased this farmhouse in 2011
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 4 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.

- für eine tolle, geräumige, ruhige, gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung - für ein unglaubliches Grundstück, das mit so viel Liebe angelegt und gepflegt ist - für eine herzliche Gastgeberin, die sich rührend um unsere Kinder und uns gekümmert hat und uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stand Danke!
La propriété est magnifique : grand terrain arboré, très belle piscine et maison toscane typique. L'environnement et la vue sur la région sont vraiment splendides.
La propriétaire est très sympathique.
A conseiller vivement !
The property is simply stunning! The house is spacious and well equiped. The garden is beautiful and so are the views. It's a great holiday home for relaxation - great swimming pool and bbq - but also for sightseeing. It's close to Cortona and Val d'Orcia. I'd fully recommend anyone to book this place! Giovanna is a great host also!
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.
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.
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!
We had a very nice stay with a charm owners that allow you to have fresh vegetables from their garden.
The house is very confortable and the children loved the swimming-pool and the garden.
You are very well located for see sighting the sourrondings as Cortona, Siena, Motelpuciano and Montalcino and so on.
We kept a unforgettable stay!
At only 20 km, we can reach Arezzo, where, every the first Sunday of the month, is carried out an important market of the antique. Moreover the first Sunday of September the city accommodates the ancient Giostra of the Saracino, typical medieval quarrel. I n 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, and not less interesting, we can find cities like Cortona, than in the August month she accommodates a famous market of the antique. 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.
