Medieval Tuscan village house with access to pool


Bedroom apt.1 - San Francesco

Il Cerro is a prestigious ancient house situated in the medieval village of Orciatico, in the country land of Volterra, and with a magnificent view of Volterra and the valley of high Valdera from its doorstep. The building, dating from the sixth century, has been restored with total respect to the original architectural style of the building, with cooked stone floors and beamed ceilings, to creating a beautiful Tuscan country house furnished with a mix of antiques and comfortable country furniture. 

Here you can enjoy a very Italian holiday, with all the pleasures of being in a spectacular countryside setting in the heart of the picturesque medieval village of Orciatico.
