It is in the nature of defense towers that they are impossible to sneak up on unseen; yet it is also true that they are a welcoming beacon as you approach.

Additional Location Information

A short stroll has guests enjoying their morning coffee or an evening pizza in the local bars or restaurants, but this village has yet more to offer. The Cecina Valley mining industry dates back to the Etruscans, and Montecatini once thrived on the wealth of the copper mine at nearby Caporciano, the richest in Europe and active until 1907. The mine itself is now a fascinating museum and a stunning backdrop to summer concerts and theatre. While the town is surrounded by forests offering meandering walks and porcini mushroom or asparagus hunting, and near the crystalline waters of Cecina river, Volterra, famous for its alabaster and summer festivals, is a short drive away, as are the Cecina beaches and Bolgheri wine cellars along the coast. Easy day trips can take in the guidebook destinations of San Gimignano, Massa Marittima, Pisa or Lucca and still have you back for sunset viewing from your top-of-the-world terrace.
