Frantusa, a recently built villa, is located in the heart of the Volterra hills, in the cradle of Tuscan art and history. The house is situated in a strategic position for both country and beach lovers, a few kilometres from the medieval towns of Volterra, Pisa, Lucca and Siena. It is within easy reach of the magical city of Florence, noted for its architectural beauty, of the renowned Costa degli Etruschi with its famous beaches of fine white sand and of the numerous wine cellars which produce some of the most well-known Italian wines like Sassicaia and Ornellaia; it is also possible to make small naturalistic excursions. From the swimming pool guests can enjoy an excellent view over the valley while they relax in total tranquillity. The house is a few meters from the property Frantusina, but at the same time it is in a total privacy and confidentiality.
