About The Experience

If you’re looking for a large Italian villa with enough room to fit as many as ten couples, this surely is the place for you! Peacefulness, with gorgeous views of the surrounding olive groves and cypresses await your arrival, as does a charming garden with a private swimming pool. In addition to beauty, you’ll be a quick drive away from Volterra and San Gimignano, two Tuscan towns that are not to be missed!

Location Description

The nearest town of Volterra is located six kilometers away from the property. Volterra is situated on a rocky hilltop 1770 feet above sea level and is filled with restaurants, shops, markets, and ancient castles. It is a great place to visit for anyone interested in the Etruscans. It is encircled by Etruscan walls and features the Guarnacci Museum, home to a large display of Etruscan antiques and artifacts. The rivaling town of San Gimignano is a short drive away where you will find more museums, shops, restaurants, and wine. San Gimignano is well known for its towers and rich history dating back to Etruscan times. It has seen many ups and downs throughout history, but San Gimignano has survived, and today it is very well preserved-- almost just as it was in its medieval prime! It is a wonderful place to wander and explore, and major sights include the 12th century Duomo, the People's Palace, and museums dedicated to artwork and archaeology. Other day trips might include spending time at the beaches of Cecina, or visiting Siena, Pisa, and Florence.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
It was wonderful. We did not use the living room at all or the dining room as we were either outside by the pool, under the pergola or in the kitchen and of course, in the bedrooms or taking showers, etc. The kitchen was small but cozy and would be where we would sit and talk about the day. All of us were never in at one time, so it worked out. The table outside the kitchen was used by one or more several times.
Enjoyed Most:
The outside was definitely our favorite, with the view and the grounds. Loved the pool. During the day, there was a tranquility and beauty to it. Our group always has good conversation and laughter and that continued, however I noticed that people were either together or taking the opportunity to be off by themselves reading or sleeping or relaxing. The bedrooms were nice.
Enjoyed Least:
Interrupted sleep because of barking neighbor dogs.
Surrounding Area:
The history, the beauty, the people, the unspoiled quality of the countryside.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Volterra. No. Wonderful view of it at night.
Tips or Restaurants:
I was relying on the group and several of them had Rick Steves' books. In Lucca we found a wonderful restaurant - friendly, great ambiance - my friend checked and it was in Rick Steves.
Directions:
I would definitely put directions in from all sides and possible ways of coming. We came from Florence and we encountered a 439 and went to marker 11 and drove and drove because we didn't understand that the letters underneath made it a different road. Several people had GPSs.
Check In Out:
It went smoothly.

Elise, June

Overall:
It is a magical place. Dorella and Tuilio were wonderful, the house is clean, quiet and beautifully kept. The view is spectacular. We were a family of 18, and had an absolutely great time. This was probably the most beautiful villa we've rented so far, and we are a long-term customers of Rentvillas, and we keep returning to Italy almost every year.
Enjoyed Most:
Everything!
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing, whatsoever.
Surrounding Area:
View, good strategic location to visit many places in Tuscany.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Volterra is 6 km away. Our young family members hiked to Volterra, but for most of us you need a car.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa is very well equipped.
Directions:
It was easy to find even without the GPS.
Check In Out:
Very smooth and pleasant. Dorella is wonderful!

Judith, June

Overall:
This was our first experience renting a villa. It could not have been any better. The villa met all our needs and exceeded our expectations.
Enjoyed Most:
With the temperatures above the normal the pool became one of the best features of the property.
Enjoyed Least:
It was not as close to cities in the area but was ok for driving to them.
Surrounding Area:
The acessibility to the Tuscan Hill Top towns.
Tips or Restaurants:
Booklight for reading as lighting very dim in most bedrooms. Il Monte on SR68 about KM 57 marker next to sunflower fields was able to seat and feed 12 of us on short notice without reservations. Take train from Ceraldo to Florence.
