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.

Review for stay from 30 June 2018 to 07 July 2018

5 of 5
We stayed at the villa, which is a short drive from beautiful and historic town of San Gimignano for a wonderful week in July, 2018. From a location standpoint, it is an ideal jumping off point for people who want to see the real Tuscan countryside. An easy one hour drive from the Florence airport, the home is situated on a secluded hill with beautiful views. The home has a spacious three-bedroom private half which we rented. This half is where the pool is and includes beautifully landscaped terraces. The home is tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. Conveniently, the owner lives in the other half, but the two halves are completely separate, so there is complete privacy. Upon arrival we received a beautiful basket of food and kitchen goods, mid week there was a lovely cake and bottle of wine waiting for us after a day of sightseeing. From this house, it is a short ride to wineries, olive pressing cooperatives, small towns with pasta factories and much more authentic parts of rural Tuscan life – all of which we did during our week there. We were absolutely delighted with the accommodations and would recommend this villa to anyone wanting to see the true face of Tuscany.

We stayed in Quercia apartment for two weeks. It is the best equipped apartment we have stayed in.The attention to detail is excellent and the apartment was immaculate and spotlessly clean on arrival. Rosita the owner and her staff are so helpful and will do everything they can to ensure your stay is good. The pool is surrounded by beautiful gardens but is situated down quite a few steps so this property may not be suitable for people with mobility issues. I cannot recommend La Cipressa highly enough and we hope to return soon! The property is really well situated for visiting the tourist towns of Siena, Florence and San Gimignano etc but close to Poggibonsi for shopping and restaurants. All in all a perfect spot!
