VILLANOVIA IS PERFECTLY LOCATED FOR EXPLORING REAL TUSCANY

Villanovia overlooks a hilltop of the natural park of Berignone, outside the village of Mazzolla, that a legend associate to an Etruscan settlement, called Mazzum, however the first historical document that attests the existence of Mazzolla dates from the year 1080 when the Bishop of Volterra was received there.


The view spans seamlessly across the Cecina valley, the cities of Volterra and Pomarance, the Metallic Hills and Larderello, with the visible geothermal steams. The natural reserve of Berignone is untouched and populated by a large variety of wild animals, some peculiar birds and night-birds as well as covered with a dense and typical mediterranean forest. There are numerous hiking and biking paths inside the park as well as historical discoveries, such as the ancient middle-age ruines of the Bishops' Castle, the Castle of Luppiano and the fortresses of Rocca Sillana. There are a few rivers that cross the natural park, all affluent of the main Cecina river that forms a large valley and dies into the see in the nearby Etruscan Coast.


One of the few remaining untouristic spots of Tuscany. 


Located in the center of the triangle made by the cities of Pisa, Siena and Florence, offers short rides to the cities of Volterra (10Km), Pisa, Siena (about 70Km each), San Gimignano and Florence, as well as the Etruscan Coast beaches (45Km).


Volterra is a real, all year round, working town with restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and all modern facilities.

Volterra, the ancient Etruscan Volaterrae, is a city of great architectural interest, located 531 meters above the sea level, between the rivers Era and Cecina in Tuscany. The main features are the Fortress of Medici and numerous Etruscan and Roman remains.


The area is easily accessible from Pisa by car with a journey time of just one hour. Both Florence and Pisa International Airports are served by daily flights from the UK (London, Leeds, Bournemouth, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh, East Midlands), Ireland, France, Spain, Germany, Scandinavia and Russia.


Interesting unknown places to discover:

24 Km away you can reach the Metallic Hills and the village of Larderello. It is located in the center of the "Valley of the devil", so called because of its landscape characterized by geysers with features columns of white steam (already known at the time of Dante Alighieri and his inspiring landscapes of his travel through "Hell ").
