Podere Cafaggiolo, the main house with the pool and above the cottage Il Gelso

Along the road from Volterra (12 km) to San Gimignano (15 km) you find the Cafaggiolo estate, not far from the villas of Ulignano (17th century) und Scopicci (18th century) as well as the medieval church "Pieve della Nera" (11th century).
A few steps from the farmhouse you can see the trail leading to the adjoining and uncontaminated "Natural reserve of Monte Nero" with the lovely waterfalls of the Nera. The variety of rare plants and animals surprises constantly visitors fond of nature and trekking with the sudden appearance of many species of birds and ungulates as well as with wide fields covered with wild orchids.


The short distance of 12 km to the most interesting etruscan city of Volterra, of 15 km to San Gimignano, the "city of the medieval skyscrapers", and only 45 km to the coast will allow you to complete a unique holiday made of physical and intellectual well being and enrichment.

A barbecue oven for cooking with charcoal, the pool and a children's playground complete the rich array of the outdoor comforts and beauties you will find.
