Italian air conditioned villa close to shops: with stunning views as far as the Etruscan city of Volterra, Villa Etruria is an elegant property offering an ideal way to enjoy this popular part of Tuscany. The owner has carefully maintained the house to offer optimum levels of comfort and an abundance of charm.
This private village house has a beautiful entrance courtyard offering a loggia for relaxing outdoor dining with magnificent views over the undulating Tuscan hills, shaded by a century-old wisteria . There is a Pergola and large terrace beside the pool, and small lawned terraces below the villa for sunbathing and simply contemplating this stunning location.
The property enjoys a village setting so whilst clients should expect some noise of everyday village life, the great advantage of this position means that within easy walking distance are a small selection of shops including food shops, bar/patisserie, bank, post office, pharmacy. There are several good restaurants in the locality, as well as museums, trekking, mountain bike trails, horse riding, golf and tennis.

This elegant "liberty-style" villa offers an ideal way to enjoy a very popular part of Tuscany. In the small village of Fabbrica, where the villa is located, you can find groceries, restaurants, bars, a bank, a post office and a pharmacy. A short drive away you can visit towns full of artistic and cultural interest such as Volterra (full of squares and palaces) and San Gimignano (the city of beautiful towers where you should visit ‘Piazza del Popolo’ and the ‘Duomo’). Don’t miss a visit to San Miniato, a charming village halfway between Florence and Pisa. Like all Tuscan towns, it is rich in natural products and has a strong passion to preserve its history and traditions. Taste the San Miniato white truffle, “food of kings”!
