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.

Exceptional cottage with great pool in a stunning area of Tuscany

5 of 5
We were very impressed from the outset with this sympathetically converted hamlet. The property itself, The Hammock was exactly the standard as show in the photos so were not disappointed. The view and the pool exceeded our expectations and ticked all members of families boxes including the teenagers. We mixed the days with relaxing by the pool and visiting the local hill top towns all which had their own character. I would definitely consider returning and would highly recommend the property. Claudia, the owner and Fabio were very attentive throughout the booking and greeting process. Thank you for letting us share in your wee piece of paradise.

Perfect Tuscany!

5 of 5
Borgo Mummallia is an oasis in the Tuscan countryside, perfect for visiting all the major regional sites. Colm is a most charming and obliging host and La Terazza is a very well appointed and beautifully situated within a well maintained converted hamlet.
