The house is secluded and totally private, and is located 10 minutes drive from Volterra , a hilltop town really steeped in history, founded by the Etruscan, subsequently inhabited by the Romans and later a thriving city through the Middle Ages and Renaissance: beside its historical & artistic attractions, Volterra is blessed with a large number of good restaurants and by some very excellent...

This spacious 17th century house met our needs perfectly. While retaining many period features, it is comfortably-furnished and well-equipped with modern appliances. The extensive garden includes several distinct sitting areas, so that one may choose to relax in either the sun or shade as the mood strikes. We made good use of the large swimming pool from which there is... more
