Casa Quintino is a lovingly restored farmhouse which combines rustic charm with modern amenities. A truly unique spot, perfect for groups of friends, romantic weekends & family gatherings.
It is situated one hour equidistant between Florence, Sienna, Pisa, and 25 minutes from Volterra & San Gimignano.
You will need your own car as there is no public transport nearby.
Expect spectacular views over unspoiled Tuscan hills.
Please make sure you leave everything as you would wish to find it.
Cleaning is done only once before you arrive, however you can arrange additional cleaning with Cristina as required.
We do allow well-behaved small dogs on the ground floor, if they are well behaved and have flea guards. If they break things please tell us.
Smokers are most welcome to use the patio outside. No smoking inside please.
We are miles away from neighbours so noise is not an issue.
All breakages must be reported and shall reimbursed from your security deposit. If any larger damage occurs we will have to send you an additional bill.
Passports must be photocopied on arrival.
We have a new system for recycling waste in our area, which entails detailed separation of waste into different bins ready for collection.
To meet the municipal standard, we kindly request you to sort your own waste as you go, to enable minimal offensive handling when you leave.

2. INDIFFERENTIATO: Mixed waste: dirty wrapping White bin in kitchen / car port
3. VERRO / PLASTICO: Rinsed plastic bottles / containers Brown basket in kitchen

5. CARTA: Paper and cardboard boxes Blue bin near car port
6. BAMBINO: babbies disposal nappies Pink round bin in bathroom
When you leave, please put all the above bins in the storage container near the car port to enable easy collection
