La Primavera is an unassuming B&B perched about 100 feet outside the back gate into Volterra. The rooms are large and stylishly appointed, with a large, modern bathroom (but some very scratchy towels). A family room and breakfast room sits in the center of a ring of rooms. Sylvia, the owner / hostess, was a lovely, helpful person who we will be certain to visit again. The location cannot be beat - just outside the walls with private, off-street parking (and parking is an issue with Volterra, as it is in many other popular hill towns). Crossing through the gate you are immediately in the center of the shopping and restaurant district of Volterra, but the B&B is far enough away that there is no noise whatsoever in your room except the occasional motorbike. Breakfast was great (more than I usually eat) and there were cakes and cookies out all day. We bought a bottle of wine and sat in the garden one afternoon after visiting nearby San Gimignano on a day trip. This would be an excellent central site for exploration of several hill towns in the region (as we did). Finally, this was the least expensive stop on our tour, and easily our favorite. Sylvia could and should charge more!
