The Casetta is located in the heart of Tuscany just outside Volterra in the Pisa Province, between Florence, Pisa and Siena. This former farmhouse has been recently renovated and is tastefully decorated. A stay in this charming house (6-10 persons), surrounded by a nature reserve, at the foot of Monte Voltraio is a special experience.

The predominantly natural garden (1 ha) has many cypress, olive and fruit trees, and offers various shady places to relax, read or eat. The garden is surrounded by a picturesque landscape of vineyards and olive groves, rolling wheat hills, woods, sunflowers, in short: a typical Tuscan landscape. In the distance you can see the snowy mountains of the Apennines! We rent the house to people who value peace and beauty.

What's so special about this house: This large house is several hundreds of years old and has recently been completely renovated.

All rooms are large (approx. 5 x 5 m.) with high ceilings. There are two large kitchens, enabling the house to be used as a whole, or seperately as two fully equipped houses (with internal seperation).

Bed linen and towels are included in the rental. There is a internet access.

Cots are available for children as well as garden toys.

The English speaking care-takers of the house live in the immediate proximity.

The house has no swimming pool, but there is a swimming pool within 10 minutes distance.

Villa Palagione, an ancient Medici palace, is within walking distance of the house and serves coffee, wine or an authentic Italian meal.

In the city of Volterra (10 minutes) is just about everything you may need during your stay, including supermarkets and a hospital.

At this moment the house is for Sale; ask owner for details.

                                                                What a beautiful house! We rented this tuscan beauty with friends for 2 weeks and we are sorry we couldn't stay for a whole month. We loved the spacious house and incredible view. The kids could play safely and there were a lot of toys and baby beds. There was even a stroller. The house is situated in the country, but was close enough to the town of Volterra, and also not far from the beach, Siena, Florence, San Gimigliano, Cecina. We flew to Pisa (budget airlines) and rented a car.

                                                                The environment is beautiful for walking, but you really need a car for grocery shopping etc.

                                                                We love Italy, we love Tuscany, we love the villa La Casetta and we will surely be back!

                                                                A fairytale house with breathtaking view

                                                                Catherine G.

                                                                This house is perfect for a family holiday (We rented this house with our family: husband and me, and our 1,5 year old twins).

                                                                All rooms are so big! The bedrooms are enormous and so is the bathroom. It was very convenient that there is a large bathtub for our baby-twins. We enjoyed very much cooking meals in the huge kitchen (fantastic: great stove, microwave and dishwasher!) For the kids there is so much to see and to do: not only the toys (baby-pool, slide and swings) but also nature; so much plants and flowers.

                                                                The garden is very romantic. The sunset between the hills is breathtaking beautiful.

                                                                Also the weather in june is great: sunny days, but cooler nights.

                                                                Town and places to swim are not far away. We really had a wonderful holiday!

                                                                Een huis met een fantastisch uitzicht

                                                                patty r.

                                                                Verleden jaar huurden we, opa, oma en ons gezin met drie kinderen voor de eerste keer de Casetta. Bij aankomst dit jaar werden we weer net als verleden jaar overweldigd door de magie van de locatie; de rust, de ruimte, het grote solide huis en het arcadische landschap rondom.

                                                                De kinderen kunnen veilig spelen in de enorme tuin die zo goed als vlak is. Het huis is met smaak ingericht en heeft twee keukens, hetgeen heel handig is wanneer je de Casetta met twee gezinnen bewoond. Opa en oma bewoonden het ene deel en ons gezin het andere deel. Een auto is wel noodzakelijk om de boodschappen te doen. Wij hadden twee auto’s die veilig bij het huis geparkeerd kunnen worden.

                                                                Location

                                                                Volterra, Pisa, Italy

                                                                Volterra, once the capital of the Etruscans, is a lively town 4 km from our house, which has much to offer. There are several museums, a Roman amphitheater, city walls from the Etruscan and Medieval periods and many more attractions. You can shop and enjoy coffee at one of the many outdoor cafes with a medieval atmosphere. There are two large supermarkets for daily shopping. There is also a hospital with an excellent accident and emergency department. Within walking distance from our house is Villa Palagione, once a Medici palace, but now an arts and culture centre where you can follow all kinds of workshops and also enjoy an authentic Tuscan four course dinner in a casual atmosphere. The famous cities of Florence (70km), Siena (45km), Pisa (60km) and Lucca (70 km) are easily reachable by car. The resort of Cecina is three minutes away. There are many undiscovered and beautiful hamlets hidden in the hills surrounding Volterra where time seems to stand still for centuries.
