We stayed here one night. Marinella, the owner, was very gracious. She allowed us to arrive early and hang out in this county retreat. This is a farm near town, so you would need a car to stay here, I think. You have to drive into Volterra: it is a little far to walk. However, we strolled on roads around the property, where we had lovely views. The B&B is located in a former monastery: the dining room was a chapel in the Middle Ages. There are many olive trees on the property, as well as a large garden whose vegetables are used for dinner. My daughter (17) took a cooking class, which she loved. She learned to make homemade pasta, and helped cook a fancy meal. We parents enjoyed eating the food made by the class: it was wonderful. But it was also very pleasant to eat communally with the other cooking class members (a group of 4, including my daughter) and guests. Breakfast was good: it included the usual pastries, but also eggs cooked to order. I also liked Volterra: there were more tourists than I expected there, so I was glad to stay out of town. However, there were quite a few galleries showing art made locally, especially including items made from local alabaster. I enjoyed looking at it! Marinella and her staff were gracious hostesses. I strongly recommend this country retreat, and wish we could have stayed there a little longer.
