Picche description

This small country house is set in the typical green hills of central Tuscany, about 10 km from Volterra and 16 km from San Gimignano, which are among the most beautiful cities in Tuscany. The property is also close to the nature reserve Montenero. The accommodation comprises of a kitchen-living room (about 20 m²), a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a bathroom with shower, and is equipped with a veranda, which is ideal for al fresco dining. The surrounding area invites to enjoy pleasant walks and relaxing picnics on equipped areas. The property is reached via a gravel road of 4 km. This gravel road is part of a historic route, also known as salt road, which connected Volterra to San Gimignano and is connected to the main Via Francigena-Road. Even in the Etruscan era of Volterra, the salt was an important resource of this city. In Volterra, the capital of alabaster production, you can walk in the footsteps of the Etruscans: The almost completely preserved Etruscan walls and numerous remains, the Piazza with the imposing Palazzo dei Priori, the characteristic alleys with typical restaurants and the Roman amphitheatre will surely fascinate you! From the higher parts of the city you will also enjoy the views of the surrounding countryside with its hills, as you can see from the paintings of famous painters. A little further away is the charming medieval town of San Gimignano with its 15 towers. From a distance you can see the characteristic silhouette of this pearl in Tuscany, where you should enjoy a good local Vernaccia white wine at the beautiful Piazza Duomo. In the 12th century cathedral, you can admire frescoes depicting stories from the Old and New Testaments. A must is the panoramic view from the ruins of the Rocca: you will remember the breath-taking view of the towers and the surrounding hillsides for a long time! The favourable position of this holiday home also allows you to spend relaxing bathing days at the sea of the Tyrrhenian coast: Cecina with wide child-friendly sandy beaches is about 45 km and the beautiful Castiglioncello with bays between rocks is about 55 km. Baby cot on request and included in price.
