Description

4 double, 2 quadruple, 3 aparts to sleep 28+ in the heart of Tuscany land

Villanovia is a conservative restoration example of a historic Tuscan farmhouse: it is preserved rustic and original but modernly equipped.
You can enjoy the swimming pool as well relax at the hot tub/Jacuzzi; you have the comfort of the air condition, the Internet wifi connection as well Amazon Prime on TV.
Its distinctive special character provides a cozy and warm atmosphere.
The house provides 700sm of internal living accommodation and 37 acres of private land.
Uniquely located on a hilltop inside the natural park of Berignone, overlooking the Cecina valley, the cities of Volterra and Pomarance, the Metallic Hills, and Larderello, with the visible geothermal vapors.
Villanovia is off the beaten tracks and worth the 4 Km gravel-road drive, that will take you to our relaxed and far-from-it-all country house.
Staying in our property will offer you a 360° view over unspoiled Tuscany, its history, and hills. And you and your family will feel at home! The house sleeps 20+ (extra beds/futon and + 3 cots are available) in large and comfortable rooms or cozy apartments equipped with a private kitchen corner.
The 16th-century ground floor entrance (all in stone) is the most ancient part of the house. Here you have a sofa area with satellite TV and indoor stairs to the upper floor where 6 accommodations are located, as well as a terrace overlooking Volterra.
Perfectly located for a total relaxing vacation, at the same time offers short rides to the cities of Volterra (9Km), Pisa, Siena (about 60Km each), San Gimignano, and Florence, as well as the Etruscan Coast beaches (45Km). A large kitchen and an impressive 170sm stone-walls living room with original brick arches complete the property.
The panoramic swimming pool is 5x12, fenced for children's safety.
Our premium service is the interior stylish room with a bubble pool, refreshing and relaxing. It is inspired by the Etruscan thermal springs environment, in rustic marble and stone.
Wi-Fi is available for free.

ENVIRONMENT
Villanovia overlooks a hilltop of the natural park of Berignone, outside the village of Mazzolla,
The view spans seamlessly across the Cecina valley, the cities of Volterra and Pomarance, the Metallic Hills and Larderello, with the visible geothermal steams. The natural reserve of Berignone is an untouched spot, one of the few untouristic of Tuscany.
Located in the center of the triangle made by the cities of Pisa, Siena, and Florence, offers short rides to the cities of Volterra (10Km), Pisa, Siena (about 70Km each), San Gimignano, and Florence, as well as the Etruscan Coast beaches (45Km).
Volterra is a real, all-year round, working town with restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, and all modern facilities.
Volterra, the ancient Etruscan Volaterrae, is a city of great architectural interest, located 531 meters above sea level, between the rivers Era and Cecina in Tuscany. The main features are the Fortress of Medici and numerous Etruscan and Roman remains.
The area is easily accessible from Pisa by car with a journey time of just one hour. Both Florence and Pisa International Airports are served by daily flights from all major airports in Europe.
There are numerous hiking paths inside the park as well as historical discoveries, such as the ancient middle-age ruins of the Bishops' Castle, the Castle of Luppiano, and the fortresses of Rocca Sillana. There are a few rivers that cross the natural park, all affluent of the main Cecina river that forms a large valley and dies into the see in the nearby Etruscan Coast.

SPECIAL FEATURES
Among the many features of the house, superior views and a relaxed atmosphere are the ones that most distinguish our place. In addition, we have a large traditional wood oven still functioning. Once upon a time, it was used to produce bread for the local community of farmers. The property also owns part of the surrounding Mediterranean bush with wild animals such as night birds, deers, wild pigs, and also the Mediterranean turtle!
Interesting unknown places to discover:
24 Km away you can reach the Metallic Hills and the village of Larderello. It is located in the center of the "Valley of the devil", so-called because of its landscape characterized by geyser with features columns of white steam (already known at the time of Dante Alighieri and the inspiring landscapes of his travel through "Hell ").

Prices: prices are calculated per week (7 nights), in low season the minimum stay will be 4 nights. Indicative prices refers to 14 guests occupancy, each guest above the 14th will be charged €50/week or stay. For a detailed rental offer please send your inquiry with the number of total people in the group.

Fantastic villa for a group holiday

By Roop on 29-Sep-2022

We booked directly with Laura and the whole experience was delightful. Laura was communicative and helpful in answering my many questions. The villa is atop a stunning hill, overlooking the Tuscan countryside. A bit of an adventure to get there, but we were specifically after an idyllic place, so worked for us. We were a group of 20+ and the place was big enough to accommodate us all. The kitchen is also well equipped. One evening, we hired Villanovia's homecooks who made us wood fire pizza, which was excellent. Overall, would highly recommend to big groups and would happily go back again.
