The exclusive farm Spicchiaiolona, now restored, with its two houses “Acasa” and “Il Castelletto”, of which its ancient stone-walls tell you a secular history, lies in the heart and in one of the most beautiful regions of Tuscany 12 km east of Volterra, 20 km west of San Gimignano on the road between Colle di Val D’Elsa and Volterra, (loved for its panoramic position by motorcycle riders,) on top of a hill with a wide panorama including the Monte Amiata and Corsica. All around you’ll see cornfields, vineyards, woods and olive groves. The house is situated on a 10.000 sqm property accessible only by a private street.
The hamlet is 1 km from the closest and very recommendable restaurant, 15 minutes from Volterra and 30 minutes from San Gimignano, an hour from the cultural art-centers of Florence, Pisa, or Siena and also from the refreshing sea.
Acasa on two floors offers you comfortably room for 8-10 adults and is perfect for families or bigger groups. Acasa has 4 big king-size rooms, 1 room (with two separated beds), a terrace, a living room and a big modern eat-in kitchen with a chimney. There is a diaper changing table, highchairs and cots, if needed. Wood, electricity, warm water, 2 bathrooms with shower (and on demand, central heating in every room) are at your complete disposal. The beds are made up and towels are in the rooms.
Whose choice? Acasa is perfect for a family gathering or befriended families. It has as much space as you want to relax, to play, to hike, to go sightseeing or whatever. Enjoy Acasa’s private terrace, where you eat, chat, read or relax or enjoy a glass of wine. With unfriendly weather you can stay in the eat-in kitchen or the living room to play, write, read, discuss, chat or watch TV.
With the guests of Il Castelletto (six at most) you share the pool zone with its big swimming pool of 20 m length and 4 m width, which invites you to bathe, and its pool border of 85 sqm. Above the pool there is a pool terrace and veranda (150 sqm) with a wood-burning pizza oven, a barbeque, a little kitchen and a toilette, which completes our offer. You will either swim and play in the water or sunbath, read, chill out, have a drink, play and dance on the terrace or prepare your pizzas (children love it), cook and eat in the veranda, while admiring an unforgettable view.
The beautiful location and generous hospitality in a relaxing atmosphere, peace and silence, a lot of room for children, a parking space, which is only accessible by a private road, a refreshing swimming pool, the Tuscan landscape with its hills, cypresses, olive-trees, vineyards, cornfields and woods, the sunshine, the brightness, the fragrance, the sound of nature - all this will give you a wonderful holiday, perhaps even a moment of excellence.
Winter in Tuscany: The house is lovely during the winter for a longer stay for guests who are studying the Italian language, art, cultural history or just want to take a timeout. Ask for special conditions.
