We arrived in Volterra in the evening with no accommodation booked. And after a few stressful drives around the city walls we just parked the car and stumbled upon La Primavera having heard nothing of the place before. Luckily this was not high season, so we got a room, left our bags in the room, and headed to town for... More

We stayed two nights with Silvia at her immaculate and homey B & B in mid-September, and truly enjoyed our stay. The B & B was situated just outside the Porta Florentina, close enough for easy access to Volterra, but quieter and more peaceful than the busy scene inside the city walls. The room was high-ceilinged, spacious, and very nicely... More

We had a wonderful time staying at La Primavera with Silvia. The inn has about five rooms built around Silvia's father's childhood home. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated, and the location is perfect... just a couple minutes walk from Volterra's main street with a safe & private parking lot to keep your car if you're driving. Silvia had... More

A 10 minute walk from where the bus drops you off, right down the main street of the walled town. Silvia is so sweet and a wonderful host. The room was wonderful, spotless with a very comfortable bed. We had 2 great nights in Volterra, and Silvia's breakfasts were the best we had in our 15 days in Italy. Recommended... More

This is a charming B & B that felt like home. Silvia, the sweet owner has special touches throughout. It's obvious she loves cross-stitch, teapots, cats and cooking, none overdone....except her wonderful breakfast items each morning. We were fortunate to stay with her for 3 nights, having a wonderful very large room with a sitting area and views of yard... More

Our family stayed in two rooms for a few nights in late May. Sylvia was extremely helpful before our trip with providing all the information we needed and she is absolutely wonderful in person! Her breakfast is fantastic. I think she makes many of the items herself. The garden is lovely and is a great place to relax in the... More

Due to trouble with our car we arrived late, 11 p.m. Fortunately Silvia received us without any trouble and we had a refreshing sleep and a nice breakfast. La Primavera is on a short walking distance to the lovely centre of Volterra, so we were able to explore it quite easily.

This was our second visit at this B&B and it was as good as our first, so many years ago. Last time we were a couple, this time a family. Silvia the owner was very helpful and when we arrived the room was perfectly made, including a cot for our 18 months old. She provided not just the sheets but... More

My daughter & I stayed 2 nights here. Silvia is a lovely hostess & was very helpful in all respects including allowing my daughter to use her personal phone to call her bank when my daughter was having cc issues. The room was clean, neat & quiet. The breakfast was the best we had anywhere. A variety of cereal, pastries,... More

We are two couples who had a wonderful stay at La Primavera! Silvia is a sweet, friendly host who takes great care and pride in her B&B and it shows! Our rooms were lovely...good size, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. They opened onto a comfortable common area that faced a pretty courtyard. Delicious breakfasts that included Silvia's home baking were... More
