Information on
Castello Ginori di Querceto

In the heart of the Val di Cecina, between Volterra and the Etruscan Coast, the Ginori Castle perches on top of a hill in Querceto an enchanting medieval village whose long and rich history has blended for over two centuries with the history of the Marchesi Ginori Lisci, a noble Florentine family who are famous throughout the world for their precious porcelain factory. Thanks to the many projects promoted by the Ginori Lisci family, today the village is an integral part of the local economy with its thriving winery, the events it organizes and the hospitality offered in its charming apartments.

The holiday apartments and the villa in the Ginori Castle at Querceto in Tuscany, were renovated with a view to preserving the warm and welcoming style of old country houses. The most distinctive feature of this charming village is its authenticity, noticeable in every detail: the stones of the old houses, the smile of the inhabitants, the small town squares, the untouched natural surroundings...

It is almost as though time had stood still in this fascinating hilltop village, far removed from the fast pace of modern life. It is a world of forgotten sounds and smells, of breathtaking views and sunsets.

Castello Ginori di Querceto is a historic village near the sea coast of Tuscany (25 km) with famous seaside resorts such as Castiglioncello, with rocks, and Cecina, Marina di Bibbona, Donoratico and San Vincenzo with long sandy beaches, equipped and not equipped. The proximity to Volterra full of charm and to the small villages of Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci, make Querceto the ideal starting point for interesting day trips.
