This hamlet was built in Medieval times by the noble families of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. It sits on top of a hill, 150mt. above sea level, overlooking a magnificent scenery of vineyards, olive trees and gentle hills surrounding the town of Volterra. The hamlet, although many centuries have gone by, has not suffered from changes spoiling its characteristic flavour, keeping as true and typical as the people of Tuscany can witness.
