Excellent cottage in a beautiful position at the edge of the historic walled city of Volterra, within reach also of many lovely Tuscan sites. Beautiful shady garden and very welcome pool - not heated but absolutely fine in August. Very helpful and charming host, who did everything to make our holiday relaxing. Only draw-back, which did not affect us too...

The villa is situated just inside the ancient walls of Volterra, which means restaurants and sights are within walking distance. We received a very warm welcome from Daniela even though we were late in arriving. The kids enjoyed the pool and the hot tub, and the flag performers practising next door. The villa had everything we needed and the garden...

About the neighborhood
Volterra, a haven of Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Rennaissance art, dominates the Cecina Valley, 550 metres above sea level, affording a spectacular view as far as the sea.

The city still retains traces of its majestic past which gradually unfurls as you wander through the narrow streets and explore the Etruscan Museum, The Art Gallery and Museum of Sacred Art. And yet Volterra’s charm not only lies in its historical patrimony
but in the undefiled surrounding countryside, a slow traditional way
of life and its age-old tradition of alabaster carving.
This elusive stronghold requires careful and patient attention for it
takes time to absorb its timeless atmosphere, treasured secrets,
unique ambience and culture.
