Volterra CR - between balze, calanchi and spectacular sunsets

This holiday stay farm is situated on the western side of the hills of Volterra, with spectacular panoramic views of the sheer cliffs and balze (erosive area typical of the local area) of Volterra. This accommodation offers eight apartments that have been refurbished and furnished with attention to detail. They are equipped with every mod con. All around the farm you will enjoy unforgettable views of hills, Calanchi (Calanchi are a particular geological phenomenon in the local Tuscan landscape a bit like badlands found in the Arizonian desert) and olive trees. The swimming pool is surrounded by cypress and olive trees and faces a breath taking panorama. There is a light breeze  coming from the sea which blows constantly and keeps the temperature mild even during the hottest days of our summer.

Volterra CR - between balze, calanchi and spectacular sunsets

At sunset, when the sky is painted red, the last rays of the sun paint the magnificent surrounding area of the Balze (erosive rock)  in pink. Later on, when the hills are a dark profile distant in the horizon, the lights coming from the small surrounding medieval towns around Montecatini Val di Cecina, Lajatico and Terricciola stand out. In the distance you can see the bright lights of Pisa. Thanks to the efforts made by Pietro, Angela and their children, the guests can discover again all aspects of farming life that are almost forgotten: the planting of the seeds; the harvesting; the lovely al fresco dining with many people to celebrate the harvest, eating delicious food cooked  by Angela using fresh ingredients. Guests can also enjoy food produced like in the old days: the wonderful taste of fresh extra virgin olive oil, the taste of freshly picked vegetables from the vegetable patch, or the fresh and delicate taste of raviggiolo cheese made with freshly squeezed sheep milk.

Also, in Autumn, Angela’s kitched is often filled with the intense aroma of white truffle coming from Volterra. Pietro is indeed an expert truffle hunter and very often he organizes trips for his guests at the week end, out in the woods where one can find lots of truffles, and the excursion ends eating dishes cooked with truffle.
All the apartments are spacious and furnished with very expensive furniture, they have a washing machine, a dishwasher and an electric oven. On the ground floor, in what used to be the wine cellar, today you will find a communal dining room where you can enjoy breakfast and lunch. Every apartment has a garden area and there you have a table and chairs and a large umbrella available to use.

It's also available the internet wireless connection. A short distance from the house, you will find the “Balze and Calanchi” walking trail. It is a country road, unpaved with fantastic panoramic views that winds through hills and reaches the entrance to the towns of  Montecatini Val di Cecina e Lajatico. This road is beautiful to walk along all year long because it always offers different landscapes depending on the season. Volterra is one of the main cities of art in Italy and its central position allows you to reach all the other cities of art very easily: Firenze, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano and, moreover, the Tyrrhenian coast with its famous beach resorts like Castiglioncello, Donoratico and the beautiful Gulf of Baratti and Populonia.
