This lovely villa is located on top of a hill surrounding Volterra, the magical city who was funded before the Iron Age, and was the land of the Etruscan from the VI century B.C.. After a long and gloriuos story Volterra was eventually conquered by Lorenzo De’ Medici (Lorenzo the Magnificent) in 1472 who built a lot of the famous palaces we can visit today in Volterra, though the famous Palazzo dei Priori, which is where the Town Hall is based and where they celebrate weddings was built in 1246. Palazzo dei Priori is the oldest palace of this kind in Tuscany and it inspired the design of the more famous Palazzo Vecchio in Florence where weddings are celebrated in the famous Sala Rossa.
This villa was built as a country house of a noble family in 1800 and has been completely restored preserving most of the original flooring and architecture, including a spectacular sit in chimney in the kitchen. The villa overlooks a breathtaking landscape despite being very close to the city itself (just 10 minutes drive). The villa is rented as a whole and is composed of 11 bedrooms finely furnished (22 people max), 5 of which have air conditioning (the other do not need any as the walls are so wide that preserve fresh air throughout Summer). Outside there is a private swimming pool and a nice gazebo for informal dinners overlooking the valley. In the gravelled patio in front of the villa there is enough space for even big reception of around 150 people.
In case of rain a marquee needs to be rented if your group is bigger than the capacity of the villa or max 30 people.
A private chapel is available for blessings and symbolic weddings.
Additional accommodation is available in the proximity, though not at walking distance.
Prices are provided upon request, but you will be amazed at them! This is a perfect location for your wedding in Tuscany.
