The Surroundings

The villa is located a few steps from the historic center of Volterra and offers a beautiful view of the majestic Medici fortress and the valley of Cecina. San Gimignano, Siena, Florence and the coast are also easily accessible. If you prefer a trip on a mountain bike, walks or on horseback to the nature reserve of Montenero, that is also possible. 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, starting from this special holiday home.
