Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Volterra, Italy your home away from home

Volterra is a beautifully built walled town in the countryside of Tuscany, in the Pisa region. Known for the two beautiful medieval castles, Volterra is one of the finest medieval towns in Tuscany, yet is never at the mercy of tourist crowds as many Italian towns can become.

Things to do on holiday to Volterra, Italy

The rich historical heritage of Volterra is unsurpassed. The 10th century cathedral is wonderfully impressive, even by today’s standards, and has been enlarged many times over the centuries. However, it is the number and quality of Etruscan finds which really excite those with an interest in history, bringing visitors from around the world to Volterra accommodation to see for themselves. The Guarnacci Museum holds the best Etruscan artefact collection in the world, and is a ‘must-see’ attraction for anyone staying in self catering Volterra holiday rental accommodation. The Etruscan baths, aqueducts and amphitheatre still stand, and you will regularly pass through the beautiful Porto dell’Arco as you wander the streets of Volterra.

Pieces from the Renaissance era can be found in Volterra too. The Civic Art Gallery and Museum of Sacred Art are both well worth visiting from a holiday rental in Volterra, housing some of the most impressive works from the Sienese and Florentine Schools. After a day of artistic enlightenment, there are over 20 restaurants within the town to explore. Sipping local wines and delving into regional gastronomic specialities is an absolutely fantastic way to spend your evenings. Throughout the year are a whole host of cultural events, celebrating everything from classical music to art, folklore to gastronomy, with the annual Volterra Teatro festival being the jewel in the crown.

The countryside surrounding a Volterra holiday rental is filled with hidden treasures, from ancient monasteries to roman villas lying in ruins. Exploring the hills and plains on foot, horse back and by mountain bike is an absolute delight, with many miles of signed trails leading you through the finest parts of the countryside.

Places to visit on holiday to Volterra, Italy

The largest attraction in the area is the town of Pisa, which is within easy reach of a holiday rental in Volterra. Famous for its leaning tower, Pisa can get a little crowded during the summer months, but if you can retire to a Volterra villa rental after a long day of sightseeing in Pisa, the crowds are never a hassle. The shopping, restaurants and festivals of Pisa are a huge draw too, and in the surrounding area, there are both golf courses and magnificent hiking trails.

Weather in Volterra, Italy

Spring and autumn are also hugely pleasant times to visit a Volterra holiday rental, as temperatures remain around 30°C during the day, but the sting has been taken out a little.

Having arrived in the dark during a thunderstorm, we were greeted by Sonia and Rosario, who gave us a very warm welcome as well as lots of their home-made products-the red wine was one of the best we've ever tasted! It was also nice to arrive home one evening and find 3 delicious pizzas waiting for us! The apartment has fantastic views and the large bathroom is particularly well equipped, with lots of hot water! The swimming pool was superb; it is well-maintained in an excellent position-a sun trap even in September! This apartment is also in a good position for visiting Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra. Thank you so much, Sonia and Rosario, for a lovely stay.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      You have to travel down a gravel track for 2 1/2 km before you arrive at the villa, which is adjacent to a working farm. The villa was exceptionally clean although a bit old fashioned by our standards. However, the beds were comfortable although not all the beds were made up, and we couldn't get sheets for a couple of days. The villa is arranged on 2 floors, the top mirroring the ground floor, which has a living room/dining/kitchen, two double bedrooms and a shower room. Kitchen area is a bit small, but there is also a BBQ area and outside dining. Good size pool with plenty of loungers and deck chairs, all set nicely in lovely grounds, with good views. Enjoyed our stay here, and the isolation does give you solitude. The city of Volterra is about 10 km distant, so not too far for the supermarkets and shops. Would recommend a stay here.
