This small gem of a hotel is located right beneath the Volterra city walls. The hotel is lovely, with comfortable and well-decorated rooms, and the most comfortable bed we had in many vacations. It's set in a nice garden, which would be an added attraction in summer (we were there in winter). The hosts are very nice, and the breakfast... More

Volterra is a beautiful medieval town in Tuscany, & is definitely one of my favourite towns in Italy. It is not far from San Gimignano, but evidently lacks the tourism draw of that (also beautiful) town. This B&B is located very close to the city walls, just a couple of hundred metres from an Etruscan gateway into the town. The... More

This hotel is conveniently located, just outside the walls of this beautiful Tuscan town. The rooms are spacious, nicely furnished, and clean. It only takes a few minutes to walk into the wonderful old city, though it's uphill. The hosts are lovely people and eager to help you with logistics or just to chat at breakfast. You do need to...

We stayed in a three-person room. The room was beautifully decorated, which made me feel comfortable instantly. Also good size, lovely view and very friendly owners. Wi-fi worked without a problem and the room was clean. Downsides were that the third person was on a fold-out-chair-bed instead of an actual bed, so not as comfortable. Also I dearly missed insect-screens... More

I must admit I was a bit surprised by the lack of Customer Care when we arrived.The reception desk was supposed to be open at 3:00pm but no one turned up until 10 past.Then the elderly lady(the...

Located about a 10 minute walk below the Volterra town walls, it is located in a 19th century Italian villa. Our room was nice enough for 3 people. The owner is welcoming though I had to rely on my memory of high-school Spanish to communicate with him in Italian (sic) - he does not speak any English. My only complaint... More

My wife were really looking forward to staying in Volterra and this hotel based on all of the good reviews and with close it was the city center. We arrived around 5pm to drop off our stuff and get ready to head out for dinner. Upon arriving, we were greeted by an older gentleman who was very nice and accommodating.... More

We only spent one night here, but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is amazing, all the original touches give it character missing in new builds. The hostess was very friendly on arrival and gave us some information about the city, she told us about the house and how it had been in the family for many years. We enjoyed... More

We booked this hotel, just outside the city walls as the ones inside were all booked. We were so lucky! This is the friendliest hotel in Volterra and the owners were so helpful. They started breakfast early just for us as we had an early appointment. The hotel has a small parking area and they organised all the guests so... More

I stayed here for one night in September 2013. My jaw dropped when I saw they view from our room (41). AMAZING. The hotel itself is super quiet and quaint-- I loved the decor and the period features. I found the bed comfortable (no complaints here about the mattress!). Shower was nice-- lots of hot water. Breakfast was tasty, too,... More
