Volterra is a very ancient independent Etruscan town, strategically located in the middle of the Colline Metallifere, 30 minutes from sea where the former commercial port was placed 2500 years ago. It is an extremely fascinating town, just for the presence of ancient Etruscans who left numerous testimonies visible to the naked eye, such as the various gates and walls, treasures found in the necropolis all around the town. Volterra is a town of art, one of several, that managed to memorise three thousand years of history with its monuments.
Volterra is located about 60 km from the international airport of Pisa, 75 km from Florence, 55 Km from Siena, 28 km from San Gimignano and only 35 km from the beaches of Cecina.

The hotel has 45 rooms spread over three floors with a restaurant, a large terrace with solarium and a swimming pool. The property is located in the historic center of Volterra and has the style of ancient convent with refined well maintained spaces.
The ground floor features common living rooms. Thus, it consist of three rooms, furnished in a simple but comfortable way, the restaurant, which is available for groups of friends, even not-residents, who want to organize dinners or lunches. The host of the house cooks typical Tuscan cuisine, rich in flavours, aromas and absolutely particular tastes.
On the ground floor, in the large main hall, every morning is served a rich buffet for breakfast. In summer periods, there opens a small inner cloister adjacent to the dining room where you can enjoy outdoor breakfast during the first cool morning hours, or have a dinner in the pleasant evening atmosphere.
There is an extensive pool area, accessible by an elevator of the first floor, which is very rare item in a historic district.
The rooms, situated on three floors serviced by elevator, are furnished in "Arte Povera" Tuscan-style or classic-continental style. Some of them overlook an internal courtyard or cloister, others are faced on a characteristic very quiet street of the old town. Some rooms have a small terrace.
