Le Querce

Val d'Orcia (Siena) - Tuscany

Set in the heart of Val d'Orcia natural park the house is surrounded by large oak trees that filter the sun creating an immensely pleasant mixture of light and shade. Le Querce is a comfortable, generous and sunny family house.


Next to the main house a lower building has been converted into a loft like dépendance with a large living room withan open space kitchen and massive antique beams running from one end to the other.


The garden was designed by the landscape gardener Peter Curzon. Climbing roses, hydrangea petiolaris and honeysuckle as well as lavender, sage, rosemary and cistus mix well with the old local oaks and fruit trees. A large covered pergola is the ideal place for delicious "al fresco" meals not too far from the swimming pool.


The lay-out of the house follows the farmer's traditions, with the living quarters on the first floor, the stable has been transformed into a spectacular summer living room with 7 large windows.
