The Property

  This property is ideal for investment and for an ideal,  relaxing time in the heart of Tuscany.   The development is newly built: the ancient podere (that belonged to Pope Sixtus) has been completed and divide into units.   Basically the development grows upon ruins of ancient houses (farmhouses) from 1600 and now has been restored: comforts of a new apartment by using original material of Tuscan Renaissance (cotto tiles, typical local ceramic), chestnut beams in the roof and the typical mezzane (where you have the beams and the cotto tiles to cover the inside part of the roof). Podere Querceto is on the highest point of the area, on a hill, from which you will be able to enjoy beautiful panoramic sights of the surrounding countryside. Querceto is just in front of Pienza.   All the apartments are 2 bedrooms apartments (with one or two bathrooms), they have their own garden and veranda, they are on two or one level, and have a size range between 80 sqm and 114 square meters. At the moment, prices start from 260.000 € up to 414.000€. Although Val D’Orcia is a seismic safety area, we build earthquake resistant houses.
