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.

This year we spent a week in this great apartment near San Gimignano and a week on the cost (Calabrone). This apartment was definitively the best we have had during all stays - great compromise between Tuscany tradition and the convenient, new equipment. Very well equipped kitchen, bathroom (including washing machine), no surprises versus apartment description at all. Superb pool and surrounding area - even if on the pictures pool looks a bit bigger, it very nice - you can sit on the sun-chairs directly next to pool or lay on the well managed grass area. The view from the pool is marvelous - you can delight Tuscany hills and Volterra. You also have a small but nice private garden with a lot a plants. Ideal place to have an evening wine! If I would have to find any cons (still, with overall apartment evaluation 5/5) I could say that the last 2 km of the road is quite dusty (gravel road), but that's the price you pay if want to be a bit aside - usually such apartments have last 1-2km of the gravel road. Overall we really loved the apartment and can definitively recommend it. Thanks to Daniele and Fabio for all support during the stay.

Upon arrival we were met by Fabio who introduced us to the property very well. From arrival to departure everything was better than described and we had a fantastic holiday. The property has everything you require and more. The Infinity pool was beautiful particularly in the evening. Although there are a few other properties around the Borgo it actually enhanced our trip as we were able to chat to others and learn from their experience of where to go i.e. supermarkets etc. Overall, we had a great holiday and would stay here again without hesitation. Thanks very much.

The property is beautifully designed with a large, private terrace from which you can enjoy a fantastic panorama of the countryside and the hill topped old city of Volterra in the distance. We never tired of the views or watching the swallows sweep past us and, on occasions, eagles soaring over the valley in front of you. The herb garden in front of the terrace was just coming into flower attracting bees and butterflies and was very handy for our home cooking! A special thank you to Roberto who greeted us with some Chianti and home made biscuits and was always available to sort any queries out. Many basics had been provided such as tea, coffee, sugar, herbs, oils etc which were very welcome and a whole range of cleaning products. The peaceful hamlet has been tastefully restored using a blend of original and new materials and the swimming pool is stunning although cool weather and a busy itinery meant we didn't get to try it. This is a great base for exploring the area: Volterra and San Gimignano are very close and a must see although avoid weekends when parking gets difficult or go early morning or late afternoon; Florence is an easy drive but we drove to Castelfiorentino and took the train, 6 euros per person each way and the station is very close to the centre of Florence; Siena is a well worth a visit (we preferred it to Florence) and its Duomo is must see at 4 Euros per person; Monteriggnoni is a lovely place to visit en route to Siena; and the Chianti region also makes for beautiful drive with many interesting towns to stop off at. Making a welcome break from driving, there are some lovely walks from the hamlet, exploring paths off the quiet lane/ road in both directions we saw deer, wild boar, tiny lizards, a pond full of frogs as well as lots of birds and butterflies. A truly wonderful holiday!!
