Il Poggiarellone stands in a hilly position, in the midst of the unique scenery of the hills surrounding Volterra, on the ancient oil and wine route that continues on to San Gimignano; once an old Pisan watchtower, it enjoys, precisely for this characteristic, a unique 360° view. The recent renovation has been carefully and accurately carried out by the owners, seeking to respect the typical characteristics of its history, with particular attention to the use of the typical materials of the area so as not to upset the singularity of the house and to render it comfortable for guests. The chestnut-wood ceilings with terracotta tiles, the travertine floors, the beautiful half-vaulted terracotta ceilings of the living area together with the large and elegant rooms embellished with design elements, the cosy and spacious bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, the brightly-lit and well-equipped professional kitchen, the large living area and beautiful garden with the panoramic, heated swimming pool, make this property the perfect destination for family gatherings or for large groups of friends looking for a relaxing holiday in a tranquil area, close to Volterra. The exterior of the villa is a triumph of colourful flowers with areas dedicated to aromatic herbs, all surrounded by multicoloured hedges and, absolutely not to be missed in June, the spectacle of expanses of golden wheat studded with red poppies. A tableau that can be admired from the panoramic terrace of this property, while tasting a good Tuscan red wine, and from where you can admire unique and unforgettable sunsets. In addition, its position, just a few kilometres from provincial roads, allows you to quickly reach the main art cities of Tuscany, like Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa and the characteristic little villages of the Volterra district and the Sienese Chianti as well as the Tyrrhenian coast with Cecina and Vada renowned for their white beaches.
