Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Arezzo Area - Typical Farmhouse with pool

Immerse yourself in a Tuscan dream. Spend your holidays at Brolio Quinto!

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.

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.

About Giovanna Cecchi

Hello,

I LOVE DOGS................as you can see from my photo. I am 49 and I moved from Florence to this great place.

I like my job very much and I hope you will feel happy at my place

Giovanna Cecchi purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Why Giovanna Cecchi chose Arezzo Area

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.

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.

Guided tours in Cortona, Castiglion Fiorentino, Arezzo, ect....

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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!

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.

Golf: A private lake offers the occasion for calm days dedicated to the fishing sport, while clever persons can play golf, a golf course with 18 holes called “Conte Ugolino” near Florence.
