The landscapes

Casa all’Olmo is always a quiet and peaceful place to staywith a variety of colours throughoutthe seasons: colours of a mature wheat field are so much different from those of a ploughed or harvested field. This is the right place to spend a holiday plunged into nature in a sunny and uncontaminated environment.

  • The farmhouse




    Surrounded on the north side with the Volterra sloping down hills, the Podere Casa dell’Olmo is located on the western side towards Cecina and the Thyrrenian Sea. In this area below the city was situated, since the middle ages, one of the most importantwoodlands, which was exploited to provide wood to the “urbs” (“city”) and to the numerous convents and monasteries. In the early twelfth century this location, alike many others, was linked to Volterra by a road that descended from the city to the valley floor up to the Cecina river passing through the present property.
    The woodland, called “del Ragone”, was traversed by this road named “Strata vetera del Ragone” along which, since the thirteenthcentury, the populace settled forming small settlements, “villae”, or little farms most probably related to wood cutting work and transportation of logs.
    Many remains of these settlements are still present in the area surrounding the property. Close to the Casa dell’Olmo a small portion of this important road is still visible and practicable. The building, dating back to the fourteenth century, belongs to this historic period. The northern part hosts the original and oldest core of the house. The building was enlarged over time, as the woodland almost disappeared and the house passed from a woodsmen house into a farm with animal sheds, barns, storehouses and anything else necessary to rural life. The original buildings were carefully restored.
    Currently Casa dell’Olmo consists of 6 large and comfortable apartments, 70 square meters each, that have 1 separate kitchen, 1 living room, 1 closet, 1 bathroom and 2 bedrooms. Apartments are equipped with satellite TV and air conditioning in the upper floor.
