Podere Fornacchia 14

5 Reviews


RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Podere Fornacchia is located near one of the most enchanting places in all of Tuscany, the town of Volterra, cradle of Etruscan civilization, set on the spur of a hill at 541 m above sea level and dominating the Val di Cecina. It enjoys a secluded position on a hill that offers beautiful views of the hilly landscapes that characterise the area and from where you can see the profiles of nearby Monte Voltraio, an ideal destination for hikers and walkers. The structure stands within an old renovated farm complex and is made up of a main building and an annex, with elegant family furnishings and air-conditioned rooms, allowing groups and large families to have their own space as well as a large common area comprising living room and kitchen overlooking the garden. The farm is surrounded by a large, perfectly kept park with green lawns and living areas and is guarded by a garrison of olive trees and a vineyard that produces a red wine of Sangiovese quality and a white Vermentino, which the owners will be happy for guests to taste in the cellar next to the farmhouse. The property also includes a splendid consecrated chapel which is available for weddings. It is just 2.5 km from the historic town centre and from the 13th century town walls that contain thousand-year old architectural and artistic masterpieces, where you can find shops, museums and numerous restaurants, while within easy reach are the art cities of Siena, Florence, Luca, Pisa and San Gimignano as well as small villages scattered around the territory, oases and nature reserves, such as those of Berignone and of Monterufoli, very close to the town and, also, the beautiful beaches of the Livorno coast and Versilia. Please Note: when the property is rented in this solution no other guests will be present on site.
