Castello di Querceto

Castello di Querceto located in the small village of Querceto is undoubtedly one of them.

It was build around 1000 .a.c and was passing from hands to hands as a strategic stronghold for the city of Volterra and Republic of Florence later on.

Today, the beautiful castle is a property of the old Ginori Family who inherited it from other nobles „The Lisci” after their marriage.

Today’s Querceto is an old, Tuscan Borgo where only few people live. This makes it really unique to be there.
Stay tuned, we are organizing an extra tour to let you fall in love with this unforgettable place 🙂
