Great find on the twisty road up to Volterra. Arrived in time for dinner so we had a great antipasto plate followed by a huge platter of grilled pork and a Tagliatelli ragu. No tv but nice clean room with great rustic charm. Good basic breakfast lots to eat and good coffee. WiFi erratic though but no real problem for...

We enjoyed our stay immensely. Our room was comfortable, the location was fantastic, and the owners were intent on making us feel welcome and comfortable. Not only did we enjoy their breakfasts, but we chose to eat dinner there each day instead of going into town. The setting is deep in the Tuscan countryside with vineyards and olive gardens all...

What a nice and warm family, in a beautiful decorated B&B, where they cook lovely food. The area and the views are great sitting at the pool or in the garden. The room was quiet and comfortable. A place to visit again, definately.

We've just had 3 wonderful nights at Villa Otium. The staff were friendly and helpful, the views wonderful, the bed comfortable and the room and bathroom clean, and finally the food and wine were fantastic. We'd definitely return if in Tuscany in the future.

The room was very nice and quiet and the whole place (including the restaurant) was beautifully decorated. This B&B is owned by a very nice and friendly family and the location is great with beautiful views. When I go back to Tuscany, I will certainly stay here again.

We visited Volterra for the first time this summer and we absolutely loved our stay in Villa Otium. We arrived at around half past 9 in the evening and we were super hungry and ate in the restaurant. The meals were lovely and the atmosphere very relaxed. The owners are so friendly and even though we speak next to no...

Up a winding road in Tuscany, off the track, welcomes you Villa Otium, with a wonderful big garden and an almost endless view of Tuscany 360 degrees. The Hotel itself makes you feel so much at home that you will noe want to leave. The rooms are superbly tastefully decorated, and the bathrooms wonderful. Get a sip of coffee or...

We spent one night here during our week tour of Tuscany. Virginia is such a delightful young woman who created this B&B with her parents. The rooms are small, but cosy. As this is not a place you would hang around all day unless perhaps n the summer when you can swim in the outdoor pool, therefore while out touring...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Otium is heaven where you will find hospitality, kindness and tranquillity. Immersed in the heart of the Tuscan countryside and only a few kilometres from the splendid Etruscan city of Volterra, which has been the cradle for history and culture for the last 3000 years. Villa Otium has been completely renovated and refurbished in typical Tuscan rustic style. The bedrooms and recreational areas introduce guests to a warm and inviting environment, away from the cold and formal structures that we are usually confronted with in modern lifestyles. ... more   less
