Overview

Volterra Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

The exclusive farm Spicchiaiolona, now a beautiful villa, with the two houses “Acasa” and “Il Castelletto”, which with its ancient stone-walls can tell you a secular history, lies in the heart and in one of the most beautiful places of Tuscany (12 km westward from Volterra, 20 km east from San Gimignano) nearby the open road between Colle di Val D’Elsa and Volterra on a hill with a wide panorama. All around you’ll see cornfields, woods and olive groves.

Acasa is an hour from cultural centres as Florence, Pisa, or Siena and from the refreshing sea. It offers you good room for 8-10 adults and is perfect for families or bigger groups. Acasa has 4 big double rooms, 1 single room (with two saparated beds), a terrace, a living room and a big kitchen. A fireplace with wood, electricity, constant warm water, 2 bathrooms with shower (and on demand, heating in every room) are at complete disposal. An invitingly wonderful swimming pool (20 x 4 m) offers you a nice place where you can appreciate the fantastic view and Tuscan atmosphere.

Whose choice?: Acasa is perfect for 2 or a big family. It has as much space as you want to relax, to play, to make a trip etc. A swimming pool 20 m long and 4 m large invites you to bathe and, from the terrace beside it, you can admire an unforgettable view. Close to the pool you will find a wood-burning oven to cook your pizzas and a little kitchen, which completes our offer. Couples, families or friends from overseas may rent it for long periods and invite their friends to come by.

The beautiful location: A wonderful accommodation: hospitality in a relaxing atmosphere, peace and silence. A lot of room for children, a parking space, a refreshing swimming pool, the Tuscan landscape with its hills, cypresses, olive-trees, cornfields and woods, the sunshine, the brightness, the rare sound of nature - all this will give you a wonderful holiday. The house is situated on a 10.000 sqm ground surrounded by fields and woods.

Winter in Tuscany: The house is lovely during the winter for vacations or a longer stay for studies. Ask for special conditions.

Great house in the heart of Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Spicchiaolano June 2010 for 10 days. We have really nice memories of this time. During the day the view and surroundings are beautifull and exactly what we expected from the Tuscan landscape. In the evening and night the area gets a romantic and magical touch because of all the fire flies that surround the house, a really nice suprise! We have been told the fire flies are only there around the month May and June.

The location of the house is good to discover the nice villages of Tuscany or visit Florance. Our part of the house had a great big kitchen with a nice terras, great for BBQ and enjoying Italian wines, cheeses and sausages till late in the evening. The pool is big and has a great view. The owners are friendly, helpfull and come with nice suggestions for restaurants and day trips. Next to that the Italian people are so nice for small children, you can easily bring them to restaurants and trattoria's and enjoy the nice food!

We would really like to return here some day and enjoy the heart of Tuscany!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this property in March 2010. The house itself is situated high up in the mountains and is more than worth the slightly scary drive in the dark.

The house itself has a beautiful outlook and is very well presented. The main rooms and bedroom are well furnished with a well equipped kitchen supplying everything you could need.

Sadly we didnt get the chance to try out the pool as it was cold and snowing during our visit but that still didnt spoil the beauty of the property and the surrounding area.

The owners were more than helpful, happy to assist with everything we needed, couldn't fault their hospitality.

i would definitely recommend this property for anyone wanting to experience rural Tuscany with a touch of luxury.

Traumhochzeit, Traumurlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Bei der Suche nach einem Domizil für unsere Traumhochzeit in der sommerlichen Toskana stiessen wir schnell auf Spicchiaiolona und die beiden wunderschön gelegenen und perfekt ausgestatteten Häuser.Bereits beim Kennenlernen haben wir die Gastgeber ins Herz geschlossen und wurden wie Freunde empfangen und nach einer wundervollen Woche (Hochzeitsfeier und Flitterwochen in einem) bei bestem Wetter, in zauberhafter Landschaft und bei einer großartigen Gastgeberfamilie-deren erklärtes Ziel offenbar war,uns jeden Wunsch zu erfüllen und für einen unvergesslichen Urlaub zu sorgen-versprachen wir, ganz bald wiederzukommen. wir haben so viele tolle kleine Orte von Volterra aus bereist, aber sicher noch nicht alles entdeckt -und kommen definitiv wieder. Eine Reise in diese Unterkunft empfehlen wir jedem, das muss man einfach erlebt haben!!!!

Das ist das Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt, gut beschrieben an der Strasse nach Volterra (am Ende eines gut versteckten Feldweges).

Die Zimmer sind grosszügig und unsere Wohneinheit hatte eine geräumige Wohnküche, ein Grosses Wohnzimmer UND eine herrliche Terrasse mit grossartigem Ausblick auf die Landschaft.

Die Gastfreundschaft der Familie war sagenhaft: sowohl der grosse und gut ausgestattete Pool mit Aussicht auf die Landschaft stand uns zur Verfügung als auch die Grillterasse mit Pizzaofen (und hervorragender Anleitung).

Gemüse aus dem Garten stand zru Verfügung und die Gastgeber vertreiben ein hervorragendes Olivenöl. In der Gegend gibt es einen Käsebauern. Die Städte Firenze, Siena und Pisa sind innerhalbeiner Stunde erreichbar - obwohl es auch unmittelbar genug zu entdecken gibt.

Wir kommen wieder!

Schöne Zeit in tollem Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

1 Woche haben wir mit insgesamt 8 Personen im Haus Acasa verbracht. Diese ging leider viel zu schnell um!!! Denn wir waren dort hervorragend untergebracht in einem sehr schönen und ausreichend großen Haus, wie es für die Toscana auf dem Lande typisch ist. Das Haus ist modern ausgestattet, sehr gepflegt und lässt auch sonst keine Wünsche offen. 8 Personen können sich dort gut verteilen und bei Bedarf zurückziehen. Schöner ist es jedoch, sich in der Küche oder - noch besser - auf der Terrasse zu treffen (mit einem wunderschönen Ausblick auf die Landschaft) und gemeinsam die Abendstimmung bei untergehender Sonne zu genießen. Toll ist auch, dass vom Haus aus viele sehenswerte Orte der Toscana in bequemer Autoreichweite liegen – wir haben das ausgiebig für kurze Sightseeing-Touren genutzt. Gut war auch, dass die Vermieter mit auf dem Anwesen wohnen. Sehr nette und hilfsbereite Menschen (!!!), mit denen man sich auch auf Deutsch sehr gut verständigen kann. Bei Bedarf waren sie immer ansprechbar und hatten für uns viele sehr hilfreiche Tipps für Ausflüge und Restaurantbesuche parat.

Mit großem Dank für einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt im Haus Acasa!

Weltmeister 2014 in Italien bei "Freunden"

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren eine Gruppe von 9 Personen, die bei Michael und Eleonora ein SUPER Feriendomilzil gefunden haben, um unsere deutsche Fussballmannschaft zur erreichten Weltmeisterschaft zu bejubeln. Die Anlage selbst hat alle unsere Erwartungen voll und ganz erfüllt. Die Lage des Objektes ist einfach nur mit traumhaft zu beschreiben. Ein absolutes Highlight war (ist) der Pool. Ein Muss ist allerdings ein Auto, da die nächste Einkaufsmöglichkeit in Volterra doch schon ein kleines Stück entfernt ist. Die Gastfreundlichkeit von Michael und Eleonora möchte ich an dieser Stelle auch noch einmal ganz besonderes erwähnen. Daher noch einmal ein ganz großes DANKE!! Wenn wir Wiederholungstäter wären, würden wir mit Sicherheit noch einmal zurück kommen.

Car: recommended

Volterra, “the city of wind and cliffs”, is full of surprises: cultural spots like Etruscan arches, walls and tombs, a Roman theatre and medieval architecture; artisans and their alabaster and gold craftwork as well as excellent restaurants will help spoiling you. Alabaster- and goldsmiths invite you for shopping. “La zuppa volterrana” and wild pigs are cooked with the same care as for a lobster and you can try a good table wine instead of a Tignanello. The landscape and view of Acasa will make it difficult for you to go out for trips to San Gimignano, Siena, Florence, Pisa or the sea, which are just the musts you do not want to miss.

A good Restaurant is 2 minuts far from the house, shops, supermarket are in Volterra (15 minuts)

Other Activities: birdwatching

Golf: There are two excluives Golf places in Castelfalfi (30 km) and the new place in Bagnana near Siena (50 km)
