Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Volterra, Province of Pisa, Tuscany
Villa Capannina has been owned by my family for nearly 30 years.

It is a typical cosy cottage with a private pool on the outskirts of Volterra in the heart of Tuscany. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen and has just been decorated throughout.

It sits in 6500m sq of secluded grounds with magnificent views of the Tuscan hills looking 50 miles north to Abertone. We have 99 olive trees as well as pear, apricot, walnut, fig trees. We have a small area of vines.

The pool is 12ft x 20ft with steps into the shallow end 3ft. (Deep end 6ft)
We have 4 sunloungers by the pool and there is also a table with 'umbrella' and 4 chairs.

There is a raised wooden terrace to the side of the house with a dining table and chairs. This also has a large 'umbrella' to give some cover.

It is perfectly placed for day trips to Floren...

The view from the terrace at Capannina is unbelievably beautiful at all times of day and at night if you catch the firefly season as we did, it is truly magical.
we found the house very comfortable and well appointed. Volterra itself is a lovely town and captures the true flavour of Tuscany with much to see of historic and architectural interest, super shops too and the Saturday market is a must !
We enjoyed day trips to Florence , Sienna and the coast ,also San Gimiano is about half an hour away.

The perfect place to stay - quiet and peaceful yet 5 minutes from Volterra. We had two great weeks either sitting by the pool or daytripping to Florence, Sienna and the coast at Cecina.

The house was easily big enough for our group of 4 and you could tell it had just been decorated. Plenty of room inside and masses of room outside. We ate on the terrace most nights and just admired the view.

Fabulous - we'll definitely come back next year.
