Overview

About the property

Villa in Volterra - San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy - Secluded Property Nestled in the Tuscan Hills, Surrounded by Fields and Forest

Located on a hillside, the property dominates over a cultivated valley, surrounded by the Birignone natural park and with breathtaking views of the small town of Casole D’Elsa in the distance. When reaching the property, an electronic gate opens onto the private car park, the house is reached by mean of a stone pathway surrounded by manicured lawns also leading to the private pool entirely fenced in to provide children's safety. The main entrance to the house is from the front lawn directly into a specious, luminous living room with fireplace. In the right hand corner of the living room there is a beautiful flight of tiled steps that leads to the first floor sleeping section of the house. Next to the stairs on the ground floor an open arch leads to the large downstairs bathroom finished in Travertino marble. Across the living room, a double door opens on to the fully fitted kitchen equipped with breakfast bar, which in turns leads to the utility room and, opposite, to our dining room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Five of us stayed in this house for a week in summer 2011, and the unanimous response on arrival was an overwhelming ‘Wow’!



After a pretty leisurely drive across country from Pisa, the big roads turned to small roads, then finally into a track. Nothing new there from previous experiences of Tuscany. However, this house despite being off the beaten track is fantastic. With plenty of ‘mod cons’ and ample space for a family much larger than ours, the house has been thoughtfully designed and built.



Apart from our disappointment at the week coming to an end, none of us could find a single fault with the property. Although there were four adults, we also had our little boy with us who was only 3 years old and there was plenty to occupy him in the garden with its shed full of toys and a small activity area.



If you want peace and quiet, you won’t be disappointed. There are good views (with barely another property in sight), enjoyable walks with very little traffic. Jump in your car
