Volterra chateau / country house description

The exclusive farm Spicchiaiolona, now a beautiful villa, with the two houses “Acasa” and “Il Castelletto”, which with its ancient stone-walls can tell you a secular history, lies in the heart and in one of the most beautiful places of Tuscany (12 km westward from Volterra, 20 km east from San Gimignano) nearby the open road between Colle di Val D’Elsa and Volterra on a hill with a wide panorama. All around you’ll see cornfields, woods and olive groves.

Acasa is an hour from cultural centres as Florence, Pisa, or Siena and from the refreshing sea. It offers you good room for 8-10 adults and is perfect for families or bigger groups. Acasa has 4 big double rooms, 1 single room (with two saparated beds), a terrace, a living room and a big kitchen. A fireplace with wood, electricity, constant warm water, 2 bathrooms with shower (and on demand, heating in every room) are at complete disposal. An invitingly wonderful swimming pool (20 x 4 m) offers you a nice place where you can appreciate the fantastic view and Tuscan atmosphere.

Whose choice?: Acasa is perfect for 2 or a big family. It has as much space as you want to relax, to play, to make a trip etc. A swimming pool 20 m long and 4 m large invites you to bathe and, from the terrace beside it, you can admire an unforgettable view. Close to the pool you will find a wood-burning oven to cook your pizzas and a little kitchen, which completes our offer. Couples, families or friends from overseas may rent it for long periods and invite their friends to come by.

The beautiful location: A wonderful accommodation: hospitality in a relaxing atmosphere, peace and silence. A lot of room for children, a parking space, a refreshing swimming pool, the Tuscan landscape with its hills, cypresses, olive-trees, cornfields and woods, the sunshine, the brightness, the rare sound of nature - all this will give you a wonderful holiday. The house is situated on a 10.000 sqm ground surrounded by fields and woods.

Winter in Tuscany: The house is lovely during the winter for vacations or a longer stay for studies. Ask for special conditions.

                  Car: Recommended

                  Volterra, “the city of wind and cliffs”, is full of surprises: cultural spots like Etruscan arches, walls and tombs, a Roman theatre and medieval architecture; artisans and their alabaster and gold craftwork as well as excellent restaurants will help spoiling you. Alabaster- and goldsmiths invite you for shopping. “La zuppa volterrana” and wild pigs are cooked with the same care as for a lobster and you can try a good table wine instead of a Tignanello. The landscape and view of Acasa will make it difficult for you to go out for trips to San Gimignano, Siena, Florence, Pisa or the sea, which are just the musts you do not want to miss.

                  A good Restaurant is 2 minuts far from the house, shops, supermarket are in Volterra (15 minuts)

                  Other Activities: birdwatching

                  Golf: There are two excluives Golf places in Castelfalfi (30 km) and the new place in Bagnana near Siena (50 km)
