Property description

The Casetta is located in the heart of Tuscany just outside Volterra in the Pisa Province, between Florence, Pisa and Siena. This former farmhouse has been recently renovated and is tastefully decorated. A stay in this charming house (6-10 persons), surrounded by a nature reserve, at the foot of Monte Voltraio is a special experience.
The predominantly natural garden (1 ha) has many cypress, olive and fruit trees, and offers various shady places to relax, read or eat. The garden is surrounded by a picturesque landscape of vineyards and olive groves, rolling wheat hills, woods, sunflowers, in short: a typical Tuscan landscape. In the distance you can see the snowy mountains of the Apennines! We rent the house to people who value peace and beauty.


What's so special about this house: This large house is several hundreds of years old and has recently been completely renovated.
All rooms are large (approx. 5 x 5 m.) with high ceilings. There are two large kitchens, enabling the house to be used as a whole, or seperately as two fully equipped houses (with internal seperation).
Bed linen and towels are included in the rental. There is a internet access.
Cots are available for children as well as garden toys.
The English speaking care-takers of the house live in the immediate proximity.

Villa Palagione, an ancient Medici palace, is within walking distance of the house and serves coffee, wine or an authentic Italian meal.
In the city of Volterra (10 minutes) is just about everything you may need during your stay, including supermarkets and a hospital.

At this moment the house is for Sale; ask owner for details.

Volterra, once the capital of the Etruscans, is a lively town 4 km from our house, which has much to offer. There are several museums, a Roman amphitheater, city walls from the Etruscan and Medieval periods and many more attractions. You can shop and enjoy coffee at one of the many outdoor cafes with a medieval atmosphere. There are two large supermarkets for daily shopping. There is also a hospital with an excellent accident and emergency department.

Within walking distance from our house is Villa Palagione, once a Medici palace, but now an arts and culture centre where you can follow all kinds of workshops and also enjoy an authentic Tuscan four course dinner in a casual atmosphere.

The famous cities of Florence (70km), Siena (45km), Pisa (60km) and Lucca (70 km) are easily reachable by car. The resort of Cecina is three minutes away. There are many undiscovered and beautiful hamlets hidden in the hills surrounding Volterra where time seems to stand still for centuries.
