We recently stayed at Villa Otium for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The location was great to use as a base and of course had amazing views.
Despite our lack of Italian, Maurizia & Giulio (& Fabio) were all so lovely and helpful. Fabio took time to give us some advice on where we could visit which was greatly appreciated.
We ate at the Villa each night and were stuffed to the brim with delicious Tuscan food. The vibe in the dining area was always quite cheerful, helped on by the friendly hosts.
One afternoon when we were enjoying the view on the sun chairs, and we were brought out a platter of antipasto. It's moments like this that add to a memorable trip.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa Otium is heaven where you will find hospitality, kindness and tranquillity. Immersed in the heart of the Tuscan countryside and only a few kilometres from the splendid Etruscan city of Volterra, which has been the cradle for history and culture for the last 3000 years. Villa Otium has been completely renovated and refurbished in typical Tuscan rustic style. The bedrooms and recreational areas introduce guests to a warm and inviting environment, away from the cold and formal structures that we are usually confronted with in modern lifestyles. ... more less
