Stay in the hills in Volterra
Thanks to its geographical location, Volterra, an ancient picturesque town built two thousand years before Christ, is an ideal base for going on day trips to visit Tuscany’s cities, towns and seaside resorts. Villa Rioddi, located just outside the old town centre of Volterra (1.3 km), is the perfect base for exploring Tuscany. Since it is so close to the town, you can get to the old town in just five minutes by car or in 20 minutes on foot.
The villa offers breathtaking panoramic views of the mountains above Lucca as far as Massa Marittima and, on a very clear day, you can catch a glimpse of the island of Corsica and enjoy spectacular sunsets.
Villa Rioddi has 13 rooms and 2 two-bedroom flats and is surrounded by luxuriant gardens lined with hedges, fruit trees and impressive olive trees, which allow guests to sit outside in the shade on hot days and eat fresh organic fruits. The hotel is nestled in the countryside yet close to the town centre, thereby combining the comforts of a hotel with the spaces and features of an Italian “agriturismo”. In fact, they can call it an Agrihotel!
The swimming pool overlooking the Tuscan hills offers an enchanting view and awaits you for a sunny afternoon or a splendid evening where you can fully enjoy the panorama.
