A MILLENARY HAMLET
Querceto dates back to the 11th century and, unlike many other nearby hamlets, Querceto does not feature on the tourist map, making it a rare jewel of its kind and the perfect place to retreat in meditation. Preserved as a living hamlet by its owner, the Marquis of Ginori, Querceto is home to 35 permanent residents – an eclectic collection of farmers, writers, athletes, musicians and yogis!
AN OASIS OF PEACE
Querceto is perched on the rolling green hills of the Val di Cecina, on the edge of Tuscany’s largest national park, Monte Rufoli, and at the heart of the Etruscan Coast – where many UNESCO world heritage sites can be found. Surrounded by wild woodland, Querceto also lies just 20 km away from secluded beaches on the Mediterranean sea, making it an ideal location both for mountain fans and beach lovers.
EASY TO REACH
International guests can easily reach Querceto by flying into Pisa airport. Alternatively nearby airports include Florence, Bologna and Rome. Both Ryanair and Easyjet fly to Pisa, Bologna or Rome. From any of these airports it is possible to take trains to Cecina, the closest train station to Querceto (you may visit www.trenitalia.it/ to work out your train times). We can organise pick-ups from Cecina station to Querceto with local drivers or taxis.
If you prefer renting your own car so that you may sightsee during spare time we can also recommend a number of car rental companies (as little as €8 per day).
