“Italian Countryside at its finest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

Just a short 10 minute drive outside of beautiful San Gimignano, tucked away in the Italian countryside is this down-to- earth and cozy farmhouse. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pool was a wonderful treat & the view from the pool was amazing & beautiful. A bonus was the pool was never busy. At times we had the pool to ourselves. Another highlight was the meals that were served at the on-site restaurant...delicious four course meal at a very reasonable price. The breakfast buffet, which was included in the room's rate was also quite enjoyable. You do require a car to stay here in order to explore romantic & gorgeous San Gimignano and the surrounding area. We look forward to visiting this rustic but well-maintained farmhouse again.

Fattoria Voltrona is by far the best hotel/agritourismo i visited in Italy. The accommodation is great, the food exceptional, the nature around it just breathtaking....and San Gimignano is just few minutes by car....The staff is so polite and helpfull...Just the perfect vacation in Tuscany

Room Tip: You can get an upgrade, and take a beautiful bungalow down the road from the main building...

My first visit was in may 2012 and i enjoyed every second of it! Charming Fattoria Voltrona im coming back this year again in may:) wonderful icelandic horses and the beautiful landscape of Toscana. Good food and wine and charming helpful staff. Near to all the touristplaces like San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Firenze and Pisa easy to get there by car. Cathrin from Sweden.

Room Tip: Choose the one on the second floor with a nice view and a balcony.

When we went to Toscana we were looking for a road trip with beautiful scenery. Our expectations on this tour was high and we wanted to spend the night at a genuine agriculture house with a wineyard. Fattoria Voltrona surpassed these expections by far. Great environment, nice living, good tasting dinner and very nice and helpful staff. I wish we spent more nights at this yard and made day trips rather than bouncing around different toscana for other accomodations.

My first visit to Voltrona was in may this year. I and a friend of mine booked a riding vacation on Voltrona. It was the best vacation I ever had! We came very late at night and when we came to the room there was a plate with bread,cheese,ham and red wine waiting for us! What a start! All the staff we met was very kind and helpful! Always happy and friendly!
We rode on the Icelandichorses for 4 days. some days we were out all day with a stop for dinner by a restaurant! We rode between wineyards and olivetrees and got some wonderful wievs from the top of the hills! Our leader Linnea was perfect! She was friendly and helpful and she knew a lot about the country, nature and the history. She helped us with everything!
I can highly recommend this riding trip!
The other two days we stayed at the farm, they told us about things which was worth to see in the neighbourhood. I mostly liked San Gimignano with its towers, its old town with fantastic restaurants and of course the best icecream in the world!
The second time I was in Voltrona,in september, I could only stay for 2 days. It was not fun to leave so soon! But we have two very enjoyable days at Voltrona. The rooms are fresh and the furniture are in old style.Very comfortable!
I hope I soon can come back, this is not the last time!

My husband and I loved the genuine beauty of Fattoria Voltrona and its beautiful surroundings.
We loved staying in the middle of the olives and fruit trees fields, sipping a glass of locally bought wine in the garden in front of our bedroom.
The welcome is very warm and characterful, the food is so simply good. The view from the dining patio is breathtaking. We walked across fields to San Gimignano.
We are looking forward coming back with our 3 children when they will be old enough to peacefully sleep all in the same room. Our daughters would love horse riding there!
