Beautifully restored 12th century farmhouse and cottage within 10 minutes of Volterra - plenty of Tuscan ambience. Air conditioned bedrooms and window screens throughout. Well stocked kitchen leads out to a fully covered al fresco dining terrace.
Built on the pre-Roman ruins of an Etruscan villa, this 12th-century farmhouse sits in a valley above 70 acres of prized olive groves with its own gurgling stream. A large level is furnished with sun loungers and a hammock. The villa has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms while an adjacent cottage houses another bedroom and bathroom. The smoke free villa's interiors feature antiques, excellent reproductions, a great kitchen, a PC with Wi-Fi, screened windows and doors, heated mattress pads and a delightful touch of whimsy. Three of the four bedrooms are air conditioned while the fourth has walls against a hillside to keep it cool.
For most of the year, the friendly American owner lives in an apartment along one side of the home that is served by its own separate entrance, and he'll happily demonstrate the workings of the wood burning oven on the grounds.
Heating, electricity, firewood and calls made from the house mobile phone are paid on location.
