TRANQUIL VILLAGE LIVING, NEAR VOLTERRA IN ORCIATICO

Orciatico Condo Rental Photos and Description

Charming 2 bedroom village property with pool access, and commanding views

The property is part of a recently built condominium which has its own secluded pool. There is car parking on the street outside the house. The condominium is located within the tranquil village of Orciatico, which is set some 300m above sea level and overlooks the valley with spectacular views.

The property comprises 2 bedroom, lounge and dining kitchen, with two balconies and two ground floor terraces. The house sleeps 4 adults. Accommodation includes, on upper floor; master bedroom with own balcony and stunning views over valley, double bedroom with twin beds and balcony, bathroom complete with bath, shower, WC, bidet and wash hand basin; Ground Floor; spacious lounge, TV, dining kitchen. Kitchen includes gas hob, washing machine, fridge, microwave oven with grill. Ground floor shower room complete with whb and wc. The garden has level terraces front and back where alfresco dining can be enjoyed.

Locality: A good central base for visiting Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa, Florence and Lucca.

The property is part of an exclusive condominium development within the village, and commands spectacular views over the valley.

It is located within easy drives to the major tourist attractions of western Tuscany and access to the coast south of Ceccina is within 75 minutes.

Volterra, the nearest 'main town' is within 30 minutes drive and affords a rare glimpse of Italian history, ranging from early Etruscan relics through Roman times, with passing refences to the renaissance including the Medici occupation to the present day and has appeared in the recent Twilight films. This town is a microcosm of history for those seeking to explore.

For those seeking the simple pleasure in life such as eating and wine tasting both Volterra and its hinterland offers a wide range of restaurants and bars to suit everyones taste.

The house: The house itself comprises two bedrooms on the upper floor, master bedroom with double bed and access to balcony which overlooks the valley from the highest point in the condominium. The views are stunning (I would say that of course) The second bedroom contains two single beds and access to a west facing balcony, which is a sun trap in the late afternoon. The master bathroom is finished with marble wall tiling and contains a shower, bath, wash basin, wc and bidet.

The ground floor is open plan, with the exception of the shower/toilet room. The kitchen is simple and rustic in appearance, with dining table space. The rear door opens on to a terrace and garden where it is possible to dine should this be your choice. The lounge opens onto a covered terrace area then onto the main garden area which is landscaped for relaxation. This terrace is surrounded by a selection of jasmine plants which in the evening provide a range of scents.

Modern apartment in lovely little village.

  • 4 of 5
Wonderful, modern apartment. A good base for exploring Tuscany. Definitely need a car. Orciatico has a small shop for supplies and an ATM! We had a delicious meal cooked by Max at the little restaurant in the village. Loved the apartment and the location but not the bells ringing at night.

Thrilling memories - 1st time in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5
I am finally writing to say how wonderful our experience in this villa was in August 2010. Our family of five was excited to arrive in this hilltop village and find the breathtaking views awaiting us from our terrace and balcony. The accommodations were spacious, clean and well-appointed. I would return every year, if I could, simply to explore the region from this central point, and to return to the peaceful retreat that Orciatico offers. I cannot compliment this place enough. Thanks above all to Jill from myself, my husband and 3 children. Memories for a lifetime!
