I Capannini Volterra Italy
Volterra, one of Tuscany’s most alluring locations, sits 1,770ft above the Cecina Valley and 18 miles from San Gimignano to the north-east. And although Volterra may lack its neighbour’s hordes of summer tourists, it is all the more quietly appealing for it.
The town is known for its Etruscan walls, dating from the fourth century BC, and parts of which still remain.
Leaving aside its present-day real estate, Volterra has rich, centuries-old architectural history. Its walls, which completely surround it, date from the 13th century and come complete with watchtowers and moats.
In the stunning countryside of Volterra and at only 10 minutes from the Etruscan town, an old restored stone farmhouse set on a hill with a beautiful panoramic views. The house, restored by the present owners, consists of: - On the ground floor: entrance hall, spacious kitchen, dining-room, living room, storage-rooms, and bathrooms; - On the first floor there are 5 double bedrooms each with its own bathroom. A stunning swimming pool overlooking the beautiful countryside.
