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

Summers in Volterra are wonderfully hot, especially in July and August when monthly average temperatures exceed 27°C, with daily maximums often reaching up to 36°C. 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.

Travel to Volterra, Italy

Pisa International Airport (PSA) is just 65km from the heart of Volterra. Luckily for those of us visiting Volterra holiday rentals from the UK, there are a great range of flights to Pisa from airports both big and small throughout the UK.

                                                          Diese Cottage hat uns ( 2x ca. 50 Jahre und 2x 22 Jahre) ausgesprochen gut gefallen!!! Das Anwesen liegt sehr ruhig und fast versteckt in einem Waldgebiet. Die Anreise hat aber durch die sehr guten Hinweise von Fr. Dr. Pirazzi super geklappt. Das Haus ist ausgesprochen liebevoll eingerichtet! Das Mobiliar ist sehr schön, die Betten sind hochbequem. Die Küche ist mit allen Dingen perfekt ausgestattet, so dass die Selbstversorgung großen Spaß gemach hat. Vielen Dank, dass wir auch den Kamin benutzen durften! (Nur aus Romantikgründen, die Heizung hat sehr gut funktioniert!) Die Terrasse (incl. Grill) haben wir auch sehr genossen. Und dann dieser traumhafte Blick vom Haus und der Terrasse nach Volterra.... einfach zauberhaft! Die Parkplatzlösung möchten wir auch ausdrücklich loben. Gerade bei starker Belegung des Anwesens bleibt so die Ruhe erhalten. Liebe Frau Dr. Pirazzi, ganz herzlichen Dank für die tolle Zeit, die wir in Ihrem Haus verleben durften. Katrin und Wolfgang Roth

                                                          Amazing property and Stunning Views

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We enjoyed a 5 night stay at the end of September 2016. We hired cars that we pre booked from pisa airport and it took us approx 1hr ftom pisa to volterra. We booked all four houses. The farm House, the cantina , the Loggia and the studio. This was perfect for our family holiday (ageing from 3months - 84years )as everyone had their own space but we where still all together to enjoy eating and time around the pool, The views are amazing I can't explain just how breath taking they are. All of the properties are beautifully decorated , clean and well equipped if like us you want to combine eating in/ out. Both the farm house and Cantina have open fire/ log burner and there are fire pits outside and a pizza oven which the children loved cooking on at night and we loved sitting around with a glass of wine (local wine is gorgeous and cheap) The swimming pool is private to the four properties, again with stunning views and surrounded by fruit trees which we could pick and eat. There are plenty of sun loungers, and toys for the children to play with as well as a lovely play area. There is a local supermarket 5 min drive from the farm that has everything you may need. A visit to volterra town is a must it is beautiful and if like us you have teenagers that are twilight fans you can visit the famous buildings and sites that feature in the new moon film. We ate in a few restaurants in Volterra both gorgeous and reasonably priced. One of the restaurants was in the main square where we watched an archery competition. Josh the owner was fantastic nothing was too much trouble he was very knowledgeable of the local area and was able to advice where to go/ eat etc. We loved it and can't wait to return. One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited Thank you Josh and Louise

                                                          Wonderful relaxing stay in Tuscany

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          In Mid of August 2016 we arrived at Diacceroni resort. We chose this place reading all the nice commentaries from the previous visitors. When we, 2 adults and 2 girls, visited the resort for the first time, we found everything available and in shape as described on the homepage and the HomeAway booking page: -very friendly owner and team, always helpful, providing the expected service and beyond (thx for the cooking recipes..) -rooms (we stayed at Pelagaccio) were clean and well equipped -surrounding included everything we were looking for: great pool with 360 degree view, table tennis, horse riding at Diacceroni, friendly neighborhood, beautiful landscape, etc. - don't miss the parties (3 times a week)! Generally it was the perfect place to be, if you want to relax on one hand and enjoy meeting people on the other. Our girls loved the horses and were easily in contact with other kids. The whole family decided already during the stay to return next summer. Thank you again to Massi and his team. We will see each other soon. Kathrin, Rainer, Daria & Marla
