A 3 star situated in a 16th century mansion, with a lovely swimingpool, overlooking wonderful landscapes.
The owners are very nice and helpful.
Say hello to Luca from me if you step by!
We spent two very nice weeks there.
Unique Quality: Being out of the town, it is quiet, you get the impresion of being in a summer residence...
There is no parking fee (this is not the case for the other hotels in Volterra).
Can someone recommend a place to stay in Tuscany? We want to use this as a home base for about 3 weeks during June/July, 2005. Accommodations for 4 adults.
We have heard of villas or homes for rent. We do have a budget, we would like something in a mid-range, or slightly higher. A comfortable bed is a must!
We would like to capture the local culture and be accessible to roads so we can venture out during the day. Any insights or suggestions for Americans in beautiful Italy? Suggest restaurants? Suggest sights or excursions.
We would like to also visit Venice in mid-June and then take a train (?) to Tuscany.
We're saving up right now in hopes of returning to this beautiful country. Thank you! Rita
We're going to Tuscany for the first time in October and November so I can't give specific recommendations. However, I can give you some web sites that we used to make our reservations. We've booked farm rooms which is called agriturismo in Italy. You might want something a bit more cosmopolitan.
We made two reservations via the first one above and one reservation with the second listed above and have been pleased with our communications so far.
Good luck. I hope you get some more informed answers to your question.
I stayed in a villa on this farm in 1997 and loved it. Very friendly hosts and the food and wine was fantastic.
You may want to check out this web site which has several categories of accomodations. We have found it very helpful in our planning.
One restaurant we really enjoyed is Latte di Luna in Pienza.
Last year in August we stayed at Villa Rioddi (near Volterra): www.sirt.pisa.it/villarioddi;
Very nice 16th century mansion with a nice swimingpool; Moreover, the city of Volterra is very nice (nicer than San Giminiano and less crowded) lots of nice restaurants and then it is a good homebase to visit Tuscany: 30 km from San Giminiano, 60 km from Florence, 60Km from Sienna, 60 km from Pisa and Luca...
You will need a car, though.
Check my Tuscany page for some tips.
