We were so fortunate to find and stay here. Wonderfully run and lovely set up. Beautiful authentic look and feel, but so comfortable and lots of lovely little touches. Beds very comfortable, you could tell a lot of thought had gone into making it look inviting. We decided to stay for dinner and had some lovely local delicacies on our... More

This is a very nice family driven place, that more than exceeded our expectations, especially since the rate was so low (70€/night). My husband and I were met by the owner and his daughter in a very welcoming way, the daughter spoke perfect english and they were both very serviceminded. We were going to Teatro del Silenzio/Andrea Bocelli and they... More

The Villa was well situated on the hills of Tuscany, the view of the surrounding is really fascinating. Take the dinner offer with! It's good and quite romantic ;) The WiFi is a bit unstable, but it's more of the reason to enjoy your holiday away from the media!

Let me start by saying I'm not one for moaning and have stayed in some fairly basic accommodation in my time. I booked this with my wife, and having read the reviews, we were looking forward to our visit. We arrived in the bar/reception area in which were a number of late teens/early twenties females who were less than welcoming... More

We stayed here May 2015 and loved everything about this place. Comfortable bed, outstanding breakfasts and wonderful dinner in their restaurant. Virginia is very attentive and kind. Beautiful location with fantastic views in all directions. Highly recommend.

I went there in May 2015 for 3 days. We got an upgrade to the "Tower" Appartment because of some technical problem. Nice view, nice food (breakfast, dinner). Lovely Owners ... but only the daughter speaks english :-) Not blocking but strange for a place so close to Volterra A pity that the swimming pool was not yet open. I... More

We arrived at Villa Otium after cycling from San Gimignano through Volterra. It's about 4 km outside of Volterra located on a bluff overlooking a beautiful valley and the cliffs on the north side of the city. The room was very nice and comfortable and the owners (Virginia and her parents) were exceptional. We had a very, very, very nice... More

We didn't stay here we were in a villa just down the road but we did eat here and the food was excellent. Very traditional food, the anti-pasti for two was fabulous, a meal in itself! The staff are very friendly and the cost of the food is very reasonable, well worth a visit.

Villa Otium is a perfect small hotel in the center of Tuscany which makes it ideal for exploring towns north and south. B&B is modern, fun and proprietors are a young and engaging couple. They improvise great poolside parties, play good music, serve good food generally create welcoming atmosphere. We enjoyed our stay and even went riding horses from the... More

Place was wonderful and ideally located. Pool great and very nice breakfast. Our room was good but not breathtaking like the one we had in Lucca. It was good though, a bit dark (unexpected for Tuscany) but very decent. They had a few parties down at the bar (I think they have a bunch of those) and it's really nice... More

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
