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, in the 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.

About the neighbourhood
The town of Volterra, and its splendid territory is, probably, one of the most varied and rich parts of Tuscany. Its undisputed historical tradition joins with the splendid natural surroundings which offer, from the landscape to the vegetation and fauna, an imposing patrimony. Situated in the heart of Tuscany, about 40 km from the sea and not far from the most important art cities of the region (Florence: 76 km; Siena: 60 km; Pisa 66 km; San Gimignano: 31 km), Volterra is a tourist destination not to be missed as well as the ideal spot for relaxing holidays in very evocative countryside.
