“Really Great Property”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

This property really is as it says. Clean, well furnished, comfortable, safe, quiet.... It ticks all the boxes for a get away from it all holiday with a young family. Stayed here with my husband and 2 children (5 and 9). It is located in the beautiful countryside yet only 5 minutes drive from a lovely little town with nice restaurants, post office, butchers and the most important coffee shop. A little further, about 15 minutes drive you are in Volterra, were you can take your pick of restaurants, shopping, sightseeing. Then just return to the peace of this property and a cooling dip in the pool. The swimming pool was a life saver for us as we experienced a heatwave for a few days. The pool really made it easy and never more then 3 or 4 people at it!

Located very central to all main attractions, about 1 hour will take you to almost them all and the driving is fine.... not for the faint hearted as some reads are very twisted, but not fast.
Jill who looks after the property was a pleasure to deal with, polite, patient and friendly. Though we could tell she was busy, she had lots of time for us. Even obliged us with buying us milk and bread as we were arriving late. This was much appreciated with 2 children.

We would certainly have no hesitation in staying again.
Thank-you Ross

“Absolutely fabulous, views like a medieval painting!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in La Volpaie apartment with our 9 year old son and had a great time. The apartment is within a restored farm house on a hill, about 4 mins drive from Saline di Volterra and easy drive from many lovely Tuscan historical places. The restoration was beautifully executed, keeping with local architectural features. At the same time there are all mod cons. This apartment is in the corner of the building which allows for beautiful views but at the same time a total privacy. The apartment is large, downstairs open plan area, lodgia and utility room. Upstairs 2 on-suite bedrooms. All very nicely furnished. A good size swimming pool in the garden area. What makes this place very special are the views of the surrounding hills with farmhouses dotted around and the hill town Volterra in the distance. We were looking for a peaceful place for our family to spend time together after the rush of the school year and busy work and this apartment turned out to be a perfect find. We highly recommend this apartment.

“Has a good feel and is in great location”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Le Volpaie was one of those places that completely meet our expectations. The apartment is lovely, well appointed with everything being clean and in working order. The view is terrific with Volterra in the distance and the surrounding dramatic hills. It was a good base for visits to Firenze, San Gimiano and the Bolgheri wine country. Wifi would be handy but we had own own device from the car rental company and that worked tolerably well

“Absolutely a beautiful part of Tuscany an outstanding holiday”

Excellent location for the apartment which is very well equipped and spacious – Air con an essential even in September when we visited. We were met by Jill who showed us where everything was and was most helpful. Has a good sized pool area and is set in a beautiful part of Tuscany with wonderful views all around especially from the Loggia – balcony – where many an evening was spend watching the sun set with a glass of local wine or two ! Great days out were all about 1 hour away , Siena – Florence –Pisa and some great beaches were only 30-40 minutes drive. Loved the local restaurant which saw us most evenings but the hill top town of Volterra has many bars and restaurants that we just did not have enough time to try. Will definitely be back to stay

“Great Tuscan stay”
Reviewed 22 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

people found this review helpful

This is a great apartment with stunning views over to Volterra and surrounding farms and villages. Located in a renovated former farmhouse, it was very quiet in October - great reason to go then. Just about warm enough for a swim and not too many mossies (screens on the windows would be a good addition).
The apartment has two decent size bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs - very comfortable. Sofa bed in main room is better for sitting than sleeping. Lovely loggia to see the view. Well fitted out for everything you are likely to need on holiday.
Volterra is 20 minute drive and great off season - can imagine huge traffic jams in summer. Watch out for parking wardens in supermarket car park in San Gigimano, and wild boar on the road if you are driving at night. Roads are winding and slow - good excuse to take things easy and adopt the Tuscan lifestyle.
