About Franca Voghera

Around 25 years ago, we began to explore the Tuscan countryside as tourists.

Like so many others before us we fell in love with the area, the peacefulness of a foregone era.

Franca Voghera purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Franca Voghera chose Volterra

The property sits on a typical Tuscan hillside which overlooks a broad valley. It is an historic homestead dating back to the 1500’s hundreds. You can feel the history of generations of farmers who lived here in the past, working hard the surrounding lands as they used to do back then.

The property, completely restored, has 4 apartments with all the modern comforts yet preserving the charm of an old historic farmhouse.

What makes this apartment unique

What is the charming appeal of this place? It is the place itself: marvelous, serene, pristine, a place where it is still possible to encounter wild animals such as deer, buzzards, badgers and yet others. At night, you can count the stars in the open sky - remote but nonetheless so near to the most artistic cities in Tuscany.

Civilization is easily reachable but here total peace reigns.
