All around you’ll see cornfields, woods and olive groves. Volterra lies in the heart of Tuscany. Il Castelletto is about an hour away from cultural centres such as Florence, Pisa or Siena and from the refreshing sea. It offers 3 big bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with shower, a living room, a big dinette kitchen, a terrace with grill and a good room for at least 6 adults. You will find a big fireplace with wood there as well as electricity, constant warm water, dishwasher and heating in every room.

Whose choice?: Il Castelletto is perfect for adults, the young and children. It offers 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 will you find a wood-burning oven to cook your pizzas and a little kitchen, which completes our offer.

The beautiful location: A wonderful accommodation: hospitality in a relaxing atmosphere, peace and silence. A lot of space 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 wonderful holidays. The house lies on a 10.000 m² property 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.

HOUSE WITH SCENIC VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We were two families who spent 2 weeks at this magnificent location 10 km east of Volterra. The owners were very helpful and made it to one of the best vacations so far. The house is located on a hill top, the view from the pool is scenic. The owners helped us with bicycle rental, booking of restaurants etc. For people who likes bike riding there are multiple scenic routes to choose from. We will be back some day!

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5
This property is over 150 years old, but has been beautifully maintained and updated. It sits just south of Volterra in the Tuscan countryside. The view of the surrounding hills and vineyards is amazing. Inside, there is a modern fully functioning kitchen as well as modern bathrooms, swimming pool, and Wifi. The property is clean and comfortable, and the host family very accommodating. From here, Florence, Pisa, or Siena are all an hour or less away by car. I absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a great base camp from which to tour Tuscany, or a property to disappear in for an extended period of time.

IDYLLISCHE VILLA

  • 5 of 5
Wir (Familie mit 3 Kindern [15, 12, 8 Jahre alt]) haben wunderschöne Tage in diesen alten Gemäuern verbracht. Das Haus liegt auf einem kleinen Hügel inmitten von Oliven- und Kirschbäumen in einem herrlichen Garten mit einem Super-Pool. Bis Volterra oder San Gimignano ist es nicht weit. Bei uns sind so alle auf ihre Kosten gekommen: die Kulturbegeisterten, die Naturfreunde, die Schwimmer und natürlich die, die einfach einmal nichts tun wollten.
Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber, geschmackvoll und gut eingerichtet; man muss nichts von daheim mitnehmen.
Eleonora ist unglaublich nett und steht ihren Gästen immer mit Rat und Tat zu Seite. Wir haben ihre Gastfreundschaft sehr genossen.

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY AT

  • 5 of 5
We spent some days in May at this lovely place. Wonderful views, very friendly people and nice, clean and well equiped apartment, We were a party of 7 celebrating a birthday in Tuscany. The birthday dinner was made at the charcoal grill with the wonderful view. We rented a car and visited small villages in the neighbourhood and also had a drive to Firenze. We would really like to recommend this apartment.

TRAUMHAFTE TOSCANA PUR!

  • 4 of 5
Wir verbrachten im Oktober mit unseren 4 Kindern eine wundervolle Ferienwoche im Castelletto! Das Haus thront in der Nähe des hübschen Städtchens Volterra inmitten eines riesigen gepflegten Gartens auf einem Hügel und bietet eine phantastische Aussicht in die toscanische Landschaft. Das Castelletto ist sehr gemütlich, bestens ausgestattet und bietet viel Platz auch für grosse Familien. Neben der Terrasse vor unserem Hausteil haben wir vor allem auch die grosse Terrasse beim Pool mit dem Pizzaofen und dem Grill sehr geschätzt. Dort haben wir mehrmals die Abendsonne genossen und mit den Kindern zusammen feine Pizza gebacken, ein in jeder Hinsicht gelungenes Ereignis. Den grossen Pool haben wegen der schon etwas frischen Temperaturen vor allem die Kinder genutzt, und dies mit grosser Begeisterung.
Vom Castelletto aus machten wir Ausflüge ans Meer, nach Volterra, Pisa, San Gimignano und Siena. Es ist ein ausgezeichneter Ausgangspunkt für viele Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Toscana.
Die herzliche, unkomplizierte Gastfreundschaft von Eleonora und Michael sowie ihre kleinen Aufmerksamkeiten haben das ganze zu einem wirklich gelungenen Aufenthalt abgerundet. Castelletto, wir kommen wieder!

PERFETTO!

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben eine fantastische Woche im Castelletto verbracht. Für uns war es das ideale Heim, um mit unserer Tochter (8 Monate) zu entspannen und gemütliche Tagesausflüge zu unternehmen.
Das Haus, der Garten und der Pool sind wunderschön um zu verweilen und den Tag genüsslich zu verschwenden. An den heissesten Tagen weht immer ein erfrischender Wind und die raschelnden Olivenbäume und Zypressen haben eine sehr entspannende Wirkung. Und der Pool hat seinen Namen auch wirklich verdient. In diesem Pool kann man richtig Längen schwimmen. Es ist kein "Alibi-Pool" wie an vielen anderen Orten!!
Das Innere des Castellettos lässt auch keine Wünsche offen. Die gemütlichen Räume und die grosszügigen Schlafzimmer sind ideal um ein Buch zu lesen, einen Nachmittagsschlaf zu geniessen oder die frischen Einkäufe in der Küche zu einem toskanischen Menue zu kombinieren.
Für uns war Il Castelletto perfekt für eine unvergessliche Urlaubswoche!

San Gimignano and Volterra, cities which don’t need a description, are situated in one of the most beautiful and lovely places. Trips on the little roads give you the possibility to feel yourself back in another time. We can only fall in love with these places: a soft landscape, the sun, the cypresses, the olive trees, the wine, the excellent food, the spontaneity of people’s life, etc. Volterra, the “city of winds and stones” and San Gimignano will continuously surprise you: they are rich in culture, handcrafts and restaurants (trattoria). Etruscan walls, towers and graves, Volterra´s Roman theatre and the medieval architecture will spoil the art-lovers. Alabaster- and goldsmiths invite you for shopping; la “Zuppa Volterrana”, the Vernaccia of San Gimignano (wine) 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.

Other Activities: Bird watching
