About The Experience
Whether searching for the perfect Tuscan venue to host a wedding, special event, or a family reunion, this large Tuscany villa near Volterra, is the quintessential Tuscan villa. Volterra, the town of alabaster and the vampire family from the Twilight book series, also happens to be full to charm and wonderful architecture. The villa, owned by a famous film producer, is made up of a 17th century villa and an ancient farmhouse with outbuildings. Set on a hill with beautiful and extensive views, this ancient villa is well located for visiting the charming and medieval towns of Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena, and Florence.
Location Description

Volterra is located 10 km away and offers all kinds of shops and restaurants. Volterra is a true regional gem where you can capture that "hill town experience" in full. From the characteristic main piazza to the Roman ruins, Volterra has something from every century all the way back to Etruscan times. Wander along the Etruscan walls, dating from the 4th century BC, or purchase your own alabaster memento in a nearby shop. Visit museums, the exterior of a 15th century fortress (the interior is a prison!), or sit in the Piazza dei Priori, one of the best town squares in the region-- and the site of many historic and often bloody events. Great day trips include San Gimignano, Siena and Florence.

Nearby Attractions: San Gimignano and its famous towers is one of the most visited towns in Tuscany. Visit the 12th century Duomo and the People’s Palace. Yearly festivals include a music festival dedicated to theatre, ballet and opera performances and a Medieval Harvest Festival where the people of San Gimignano dress up as knights and play medieval games and have tournaments. Top wineries surrounding San Gimignano include Montenidoli, Teruzzi & Puthod, Il Palagio, Fattoria Cusona and Panizzi. In less than an hour and a half, the seaside town of Livorno, and the famous Bolgheri winery can be reached.
