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.

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.

From the moment I made an enqury about the house right through to our arrival the owner, Amanda was most helpful in providing information on the local area, restaurants, the apartment and places to visit. She also made herself available throughout our stay via email which was reassuring for us. The apartment is beautifully decorated with comfortable furnishings and good beds but all credit must go to the gardens which is delightful and very well maintained. The general area itself is quiet, which is what we wanted, and at the time of our holiday there were only a few other apartments occupied. The pool is pleasant and a necessity in the hot sun and was never crowded. The house is very weel equipped and has the added bonus of internet! We were able to visit all the usual recommended towns in the area and used the train to get to Florence which saved the hassle of driving and parking. Amanda had provided information on lots of lovely restaurants close by which are all highluy recommended. We hope to return to this tranquil area and home again

We had a fantastic time and thought that the location and accommodation was exquisite. It really is impossible to describe how lovely the situation was, what with the valley disappearing into the gorge below the property, or the breathtaking view through the valley onto the beautiful scenery in the distance. The accommodation itself is excellent being a very tasteful conversion of an ancient farm house. We fell in love with the ancient town of Volterra, situated on top of the hill and a short drive from the property. It is unspoilt, full of Tuscan character and full of wonderful places to eat and visit. The owner worked tirelessly while we were there, making us feel extremely welcome. Highly recommended.
