Description from manager

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Just one kilometre separates this prestigious property from one of the most sought-after destinations in the heart of Tuscany. We are in Volterra, the cradle of Etruscan civilization, on a hilly spur 541 m above sea level overlooking the Val di Cecina and there, welcoming us, is La Vecchia Fonte, a stone house recently built with the best materials of the local tradition, including typical Volterra sandstone, exquisite terracotta and wood for the ceilings. The complex, elegantly furnished and equipped with modern bathrooms and functional kitchen, consists of a main building and an annex divided into independant units, is the ideal accommodation for large groups and families with children who can have their own space while sharing the common areas, those indoors, such as the large living room with lots of sofas and a large television set, and those outdoors, in the well-kept garden areas or just soaking in the lovely infinity pool, the best place to admire the breathtaking and unforgettable sunsets over the immense landscape with a patchwork of green hills and cutivated fields stretching to the sea. Just a step away from the historic town centre of Volterra and its 13th century town walls, with thousand-year old architectural and artistic masterpieces and with numerous shops and restaurants, you are also within easy reach of the art cities of Siena, Florence, Luca, Pisa, and San Gimignano as well as the small villages that dot the Val di Cecina, the nature sanctuaries and reserves, such as those of Berignone and Monterufoli in the immediate vicinity of the town, and the beautiful beaches of the Livorno and Versilia coasts.

Additional amenities: American coffee machine, baby cot, electric oven suitable for pizza in the basement area, iron and ironing board, moka coffee machine, mosquito screens in the bedrooms, safe., satellite TV in the main villa in all annex units, squeezer, stone barbecue
