Riccardo is situated in an ancient building that looks onto the main square of Querceto and the castle's tower.
Querceto is a wonderful Tuscan village hidden from the big traffic routes. The origin of the "borgo" goes back to 1000 a.c. and finally owned, in 1543, by the Lisci family of Volterra.
In the 18th century Francesca Lisci, last descendant of the family, married Marchese Lorenzo Ginori and since then the castle and the land is in the Ginori Lisci family.
Our guests can relax around a beautiful swimming-pool (16mtx8mt) surrounded by olive trees with stunning view on the valley.
In front of the house there is a nice terrace with tables and chairs where our holiday houses' guests can relax, eat and connect to the free wifi.
You can't miss the visit of our cellar and the tasting of our wines “Marchesi Ginori Lisci”.

Querceto fa parte della nostra famiglia e dei nostri cuori da secoli; qui abbiamo imparato a conoscere ed amare la natura, abbiamo apprezzato il lavoro degli artigiani e conosciuto persone straordinarie che da generazioni hanno lavorato nella nostra azienda agricola. Di generazione in generazione abbiamo fatto del nostro meglio per far VIVERE questo piccolo, magico angolo della Toscana, cercando di mantenere il più possibile il suo carattere e le sue meravigliose particolarità. Quello che ci auguriamo è che anche i nostri ospiti possano “respirare” l’unicità ed autenticità di questo posto. Questa, per noi, è la più grande soddisfazione!
