RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. This magnificent historical convent in the Val D'Era, full of the charm of another age, dating probably to the 18th century, stands in the vicinity of the church of San Biagio. Thanks to its dominant position, the large garden offers a view of the hills interspersed with the colours of the different cultivations.
The interior has been tastefully restructured in respect of the rural tradition, maintaining the terracotta tiled floors and wooden beamed ceilings. The large living room on the ground floor is an invitation to conviviality: a billiard table, comfortable divans and, in the dining room, a large table for leisurely meals.
Situated a few kilometres from Volterra, jewel of Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Rennaissance art, which dominates, from a 550 m high hill, the valley of the river Cecina as far as the sea, San Biagio is the ideal spot for a Tuscan holiday, exploring one of the most uncontaminated areas of the region, not far from the sea and the beautiful art cities like Florence, Pisa, Siena, Lucca and San Gimignano.
Please Note: when the property is rented in this solution no other guests will be present on site.
