villa for sale
The exclusive setting for this stunning luxury villa, Volterra, is an ancient medieval village perched on a hill in the valley of the Cecina river. The origins of this Tuscan village date back to about 960 when a German family took to Italy in the wake of the Emperor of Saxony. In 1630, the Tuscan village was able to avoid the plague by closing the walls and hiring a barber-surgeon.
During the early years of the Kingdom of Italy there was a significant period of economic and social splendor that allowed for great expansion thanks to the mining of copper, practiced since Etruscan times. The village prospered, just think about the fact that the little town had 2 theaters and a musical band.
The prosperity of that period is still visible today thanks to the presence of historical buildings and homes as well as beautiful luxury villas scattered throughout the territory.
