About Katia Di Nardo

Hi, I'm Katia and with my family I work in agriturismo La fonte from 2005. I was born in Volterra in 1977 and I love this area. My passion is cook (I'm not a Master Chef, but I like to cook Italian dishes and eat them with my family and my friends (my friends are also my guestes!).

Katia Di Nardo purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Katia Di Nardo chose Volterra

I suggest you to have an holiday at agriturismo La fonte because is avery quite place, in the middle of Tuscany's hills and very close to the village (called Villamagna: it's a caratteristic Tuscany's village with shops and services). From here is easy visit the most important Tuscany's cities: Florence, Siena, Lucca and Siena (45/50 minutes by car). In 15 minutes you can go in Volterra and in 20 minutes in San Giminano.

Un havre de paix, proprio très gentille et responsable, grand appart situé dans un paysage 100% toscan, grande terrasse, foyer extérieur. Tout simplement sublime sans oublier les couchers de soleil et le ciel étoilé...

Un petit conseil: ayez l'adresse précise, nom de la rue principale du petit village de Villamagna, sinon votre GPS sera complètement déboussolé.

Agriturismo La fonte is strategically based in the heart of Tuscany, the area offers splendid itineraries though an uncontaminated countryside dotted with historical ruins, castles, villas, medieval hamlets and ancient Roman sites.From there you can visit Volterra in 15 minutes by car and San Gimignano in 20 minutes. The nearest village with services is only 1km far (1 minute by car). Furthermore, many famous Tuscan centres of incredible artistic and historical value, such as San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa, Siena, Florence and Lucca, are just a short drive away.

The “magic and mysterious” city of Volterra has its roots in three thousand years of history. It is possible to find evidence and traces from every historical period which gives the artistic city a unique aspect

Located on a hill overlooking the Val d’Elsa valley, surrounded by fortified walls, San Gimignano is an extraordinary example of medieval town planning. Art city, rich in art treasures, San Gimignano is an important tourist attraction, that has been proclaimed natural and cultural heritage by UNESCO.
