On a trip to Italy my wife and I had the good fortune to stay at the Villa Porta all'Arco. The rooms were very comfortable and the management was just so warm, gracious and helpful. It's a nice walk (uphill...but everything in the area is uphill or downhill) into Volterra and the area is so beautiful. Breakfast at the Hotel is very nice. The pastries are to die for and the selection of juices, teas and coffees was very nice. If we're in Volterra again we will definitely stay here again!
