The Villa

Step back in time in this beautiful historic monastery of the Val d'Era, dating from about 1700 and built near the church of San Biagio. From the large garden with beautyful swimming pool and thanks to the dominant position, it is possible to immerse yourself in a hilly landscape interspersed with the colors of the different crops.

The interior has been tastefully renovated respecting the rural tradition while preserving the terracotta floors and beamed ceilings. The large hall on the ground floor invites you to conviviality: a pool table, comfortable sofas and in the dining room a large table to share the pleasures of the table.

It has 12 + 3 beds (1 triple consisting of three single beds, 2 triples consisting of a double bed and a single bed, 2 double beds, 1 twin with joinable beds) and 6 bathrooms (1 with whirlpool bath, 5 with shower) and a separate toilet.

On request we provide equipment for children (high chair, cot with linen).

San Biagio offers everything for an exclusive and unforgettable holiday in Tuscany!

* If the property is rented to you, no other client will be present in the entire structure.

The Surroundings

Located a few kilometers from Volterra, a jewel of Etruscan, Roman, medieval and Renaissance art that dominates the entire valley of the Cecina river from a hill of 550 m to the sea, San Biagio is the ideal accommodation for a stay in Tuscany , to one of the most unspoilt areas of the region, a stone's throw from the sea and from the most beautiful important cities of art such as Florence, Pisa, Siena, Lucca and San Gimignano.

Ideal starting point for excursions by mountain bike, walks or horseback through the hills. Or would you rather go to one of the wineries for a wine tasting or visit the Etruscan museum in Volterra.

Volterra celebrates 3000 years of history and cherishes an artistic and architectural heritage that can be admired and appreciated simply by strolling through the narrow streets of the historic center. Volterra has always been and still is a close-knit community, where as children we learned to walk by chasing the pigeons that paraded on the stone pavement of the main square, the Piazza dei Priori. We played hide and seek and hid along the medieval walls and in the Etruscan tombs, went to school in 18th century buildings and prayed in 13th century churches. Today our children play treasure hunt among the paintings of Rosso Fiorentino and Ghirlandaio.

Enjoy one of the most beautiful areas in the world, Tuscany, from this special holiday home.
