Villa Fraggina , Volterra - Pisa

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 4 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Traditional style meets modern comforts in this wonderful stone villa, whose two bedrooms will easily accommodate a family of four who want some time out together, or two couples who want to head off and explore the delights of the region. Set in some fine Tuscan countryside, this cosy property is in an ideal location for visiting the walled Neolithic town of Volterra – which is within easy reach, just a few kilometres away. Meanwhile, the historic cities of Pisa, Siena, Florence and Lucca are also easy destinations for leisurely days out. The coast of Tuscany can be reached in an hours drive. But back at the villa, your fantastic private infinity pool, which is set in attractive gardens, is certainly and attention-grabber. Surrounded by a spacious sun terrace, furnished with loungers and parasols, this is surely the perfect spot in which to enjoy the sunshine and admire the views of the distant hills. Wander back up stone steps, inhaling sweet lavender as you go, to a spacious loggia and barbecue terrace, which are the perfect spot for serving up al-fresco meals.

Inside, the open-plan design of the lounge-diner creates a sense of space and comfy furnishings. The feeling is contemporary throughout – the kitchen features a modern breakfast bar. And the bedrooms – reached via an impressive marble staircase – are minimalist chic in style, with flashes of colour from faux-fur throws and pretty cushions. So, why wouldn’t you choose this villa…?

Our Thoughts
This villa manages to feel luxurious while maintaining its rustic charm. Traditional beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and brick archways merge effortlessly with slick, contemporary furnishings and lighting, offering guests the best of both worlds. History buffs won’t want to skip a trip to nearby Volterra, whose medieval frescos and fascinating museums are real crowd-pleasers. Some of our guests simply wish to relax and choose not to leave the private infinity pool at all.

Villa Fraggina ist ein Ort, an dem man sich gut erholen kann. Die Lage ist wunderbar – der Blick – der abendliche Sonnenuntergang – das ist Toskana pur. Zur Erholung trägt besonders der große Infinity-Pool bei. Wir haben die Gegend und das Haus genossen.
Zur Optimalwertung fehlt aber doch einiges:
Ein erheblicher Punkt ist die Anreise/Abreise. Den Weg als ‚holprige, ungeteerte Straße‘ zu bezeichnen ist eine deutliche Untertreibung. Auch der Hinweis ‚ nicht geeignet für Sportwagen, Kleinwagen, tiefer liegende Autos oder Automatik-Schaltung‘ reicht nicht aus. Uns bescherte die Anfahrt einen ungeplanten Werkstattaufenthalt. Klare Empfehlung: Allradantrieb und Bodenfreiheit. Der Weg hat durchschnittlich ca. 10% Steigung und teilweise Schotter, der so hoch ist, dass ein Fronttriebler den Weg vom Haus nach Volterra nur mir durchdrehenden Reifen bewältigt – mit 4 Personen + Gepäck beladen ist dieses Stück nicht zu schaffen.
Die Beschreibung zeigt das Haus unmittelbar nach der Renovierung. Inzwischen hat der Zahn der Zeit daran genagt: z.B. sind Fliegengitter teilweise altersschwach, der Wasserablauf einer Dusche funktioniert nur in Zeitlupe, die Dusche am Pool spritzt in alle Richtungen, die Aussenbeleuchtung funktioniert teilweise nicht, manche Gartenmöbel sind defekt, im Pool zeigen sich Roststellen, im Garten hat der Rosmarin den Lavendel fast vollständig verdrängt. Es fehlt an der Bestandspflege.
Ein zweiter Punkt ist die Sauberkeit. Ein Haus mit Reinigungsservice sollte bei Übergabe sauber sein. Das trifft nur bedingt zu. Dass keinerlei Reinigungsmittel/-materialien zur Verfügung stehen ist bedauerlich. Wenigstens einen Staubsauger zur Verfügung zu haben wäre hilfreich. Eine echte Kleinigkeit – aber eben verwunderlich – sind die lange überfälligen Toilettenbürsten. Auch hier fehlt es an der Bestandspflege und die eigentlich schöne Einrichtung leidet darunter (z.B. deutliche Kalkablagerungen).
Diese Dinge tun dem guten Erholungswert der Villa aber keinen Abbruch. Sie ist als Urlaubsort zu empfehlen – nur sollte man mit dem richtigen Auto anreisen…

To Tuscany team comments for this review:21.09.2018
OWNER COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback. Apologies for the inconvenience with the road, it will seem strange but the access road in the ugliest part is not owned by the villa and therefore it is not easy to intervene on a makeover, but it is right to find a solution for easy access to all the guests who book the villa. In the coming months the owner will have meetings with the municipality of Volterra to obtain a permit for the reconstruction of the sloping road at her expense. We are counting for the next season that the road is set up as best as possible to have no problems and an easy access to any car (except sport or low). I will consider as well all the others sugestions. Thank you for having stayed at the villa, I hope to see you again in future. All the best. Chiara
