PODERE LE QUERCE- the Oak Trees - is a traditional Umbrian
farmhouse situated on a hillside about 1km outside the unspoiled
medieval town of Città della Pieve on the borders of Umbria
and Tuscany.

Le Querce stands at the end of a quiet country lane and
overlooks a wooded valley, terraced olive groves and vineyards and
enjoys panoramic views. The house has been carefully restored, but
still maintains its original character and now has two private
, each sleeping 2. The accommodation is very
comfortable and well equipped and the apartments may be rented
individually or together for a group of 4 people.

The house is an ideal base for exploring many of the wonderful
historic and artistic towns of this fascinating area of central
Italy, whether you have cultural, historical or gastronomic
interests - or, indeed, all three!

The property stands in 9 acres of private land planted with around
100 olive trees, together with fruit trees and woodland, with lawns
and landscaped gardens surrounding the house. Cypress trees,
aromatic herbs and shrubs, roses, jasmine and wisteria give a
Mediterranean feel, whilst terracotta pots of geraniums provide
splashes of brilliant colour. The peaceful setting and wonderful
views, together with very comfortable accommodation, combine to make
this a perfect choice at any time of the year.

Swimming pool (15m x 3.5m) A spectacular lap pool, shared by
the apartments, is located a little way beyond and below the house
in a marvellously tranquil position and is bordered along one side
by olive trees and a large fig tree; on the other side is a wide
terrace paved in terracotta with sunbeds and deck chairs for
lounging and sunbathing.

Both apartments have traditional beamed ceilings, terracotta tiled
floors, oriental rugs and quality antique and country furniture;
central heating and woodburning stove for the cooler months;
portable fan; hairdryer; iron & ironing board.

A good selection of guide books and maps is available, as well as
plenty of novels and other reading material, Board games, CDs and
DVDs. Internet WiFi access.

We regret the apartments are not suitable for children under 12 and
we do not accept pets. We prefer non-smokers.



L'OLMO Apartment
(see separate entry for Il Bosco Apartment)

Originally the hay barn, this lovely apartment faces south and west
with views of the rolling Tuscan hills and the bell towers of Città
della Pieve. Double doors lead out on to lawned gardens and a shady
pergola with table and chairs - a perfect spot to enjoy a glass of
wine whilst watching the sunset.

Living area with beamed ceiling is pleasantly furnished with
comfortable sofa, writing table, terracotta tiled floor with
oriental rug, dining table and chairs; the pretty painted kitchen
area has a 4-burner gas hob and sink set into a tiled counter, small
oven with grill, good sized fridge and washing machine.

Bedroom with 2 full size single beds (or king size double on
request), dressing table and built-in cupboards. Further door to
small lobby.

Shower room with tiled walk-in shower, basin and WC.

This apartment is particularly pleasant in the summer.



Città della Pieve (1.5km) is an unspoilt medieval hill town,
but has all facilities such as banks, 2 small but well stocked
supermarkets, theatre, post office, hospital & pharmacy. There is a
good selection of restaurants, friendly trattorias and wine bars
serving Umbrian specialities. Saturday morning market. There are
traditional festivities during the year as well as exhibitions and
gastronomic events.

Numerous places of interest are within easy reach: Montepulciano,
Siena, Perugia, Orvieto, Cortona, Assisi, San Casciano, Arezzo,
Deruta, Bevagna, Montefalco, to name but a few.

There are many smaller but delightful towns and villages in this
fascinating area of Umbria and southern Tuscany. Southern Tuscany
lies to the west of Città della Pieve and the Val d'Orcia, with its
now famous landscape of hills punctuated by winding lines of cypress
trees (Iris Origo's La Foce) and charming hill villages such as
Pienza, Montalcino (Brunello wine), and Montichiello are also within
a short drive.

Rome and Florence are easily accessible by train in
just over an hour from Chiusi mainline station (8km)
