We spent one night here during our week tour of Tuscany. Virginia is such a delightful young woman who created this B&B with her parents. The rooms are small, but cosy. As this is not a place you would hang around all day unless perhaps n the summer when you can swim in the outdoor pool, therefore while out touring... More

We traveled around Tuscany 8 days and we were in 5 hotels. It was the best place of our trip. Grazie, Orietta! Wonderful views of Volterra, 4 km from the town. Nice garden with pool. Beautiful rooms. Very tasty dinner and homemade breakfast. We could not and did not want to leave... We plan to come back next year!

Great location - in the middle of Tuscany hills. The villa is nice old house, with small, but cosy rooms. Beautiful view, excellent food in the restaurant. Friendly staff. Only 4 km away from town of Volterra. I would definitely visit it again.

Lovely location just outside of volterra (may favourite quaint little tuscan village). Very friendly couple that runs the place and even though our italian and their english was equally limited we managed to understand each other quite well. Their daughter speaks good english and was very helpful. Nice restaurant on site at which we had an authentic home-cooked tuscan meal.... More

We were so fortunate to find and stay here. Wonderfully run and lovely set up. Beautiful authentic look and feel, but so comfortable and lots of lovely little touches. Beds very comfortable, you could tell a lot of thought had gone into making it look inviting. We decided to stay for dinner and had some lovely local delicacies on our... More

This is a very nice family driven place, that more than exceeded our expectations, especially since the rate was so low (70€/night). My husband and I were met by the owner and his daughter in a very welcoming way, the daughter spoke perfect english and they were both very serviceminded. We were going to Teatro del Silenzio/Andrea Bocelli and they... More

The Villa was well situated on the hills of Tuscany, the view of the surrounding is really fascinating. Take the dinner offer with! It's good and quite romantic ;) The WiFi is a bit unstable, but it's more of the reason to enjoy your holiday away from the media!

Let me start by saying I'm not one for moaning and have stayed in some fairly basic accommodation in my time. I booked this with my wife, and having read the reviews, we were looking forward to our visit. We arrived in the bar/reception area in which were a number of late teens/early twenties females who were less than welcoming... More

We stayed here May 2015 and loved everything about this place. Comfortable bed, outstanding breakfasts and wonderful dinner in their restaurant. Virginia is very attentive and kind. Beautiful location with fantastic views in all directions. Highly recommend.

I went there in May 2015 for 3 days. We got an upgrade to the "Tower" Appartment because of some technical problem. Nice view, nice food (breakfast, dinner). Lovely Owners ... but only the daughter speaks english :-) Not blocking but strange for a place so close to Volterra A pity that the swimming pool was not yet open. I... More
