Surrounded by the olive groves and the vineyards that form the typical Tuscan landscape, the villa stands atop a hill in Valdera, in a small medieval village just a few kilometres from Volterra, the town of alabaster, in the province of Pisa.
Valdera is a region situated south-east of Pisa, in which wide plains alternate with hills rich in century-old forests. It is the ideal holiday destination for those who love trekking and mountain biking, but also for those who want to devote to their well-being and for sea lovers: many spa and seaside resorts are within easy driving distance of the villa. Thanks to its strategic position in the heart of Tuscany, the villa is also an excellent accommodation for those who want to visit all the major Tuscan cities of art, including Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Siena and San Gimignano.
The Liberty building stands atop a hill commanding the town of Volterra and the surrounding countryside. Built in the mid-19th century, the villa is furnished and decorated with furnishings and paintings of the same period.
In front of the living room and the kitchen stretches a stone-paved garden furnished for having meals in the open air, whereas the pergola opens onto the wonderful panorama of the town of Volterra.
The private swimming pool (10x4 m; depth: 1.30 m) lies in the garden below, and is accessed through a brick staircase. The swimming pool with salt water has a whirlpool corner. The pool side is furnished with sunshades and sun loungers.
