In the heart of Tuscany surrounded by the unspoilt green nature and only 20 km from the ancient Etruscan town of Volterra, stands on the top of a gentle slope PODERE IL SOLE: an ancient farmhouse dating back to the 18th century and completely renovated at the end of the last century in total respect for Tuscan architectural traditions.
To frame this wonderful and evocative place the high towers of Volterra rise to the east and to the south the splendid sculptures of the famous “Theatre of Silence” in Lajatico, home of the great tenor Andrea Bocelli.
The complex consists of main farmhouse that is spread over 2 floors with an overall surface area of 850 sqm on the ground floor composed by large living rooms, a large kitchen and 10 bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms.
Currently the property is used as business accommodation but can be easily converted into a prestigious private home.
Close to the farmhouse we find the smaller farmhouse of 200 sqm that develops on 2 floors and it has been completely renovated in 2014. This one is divided into 2 independent apartments on 2 floors with a surface area of 100 sqm each.
PODERE IL SOLE is also enriched by a large swimming pool (16x6 meters) set on the hill and offers the opportunity to cool off and relax on hot summer days.
The property is also provided with 2 hectares of mostly hilly arable land.
Teatro del Silenzio, literally the theatre of silence, is a natural amphitheater built in the beautiful setting of Lajatico's hills born by the will of the Arch. Alberto Bartalini and Andrea Bocelli.
The theatre of Silence is a unique place in the world, where nature joins music. A theatre that remains silent for about 364 days a year. Then, once a year, silence is broken by the music and beautiful voice of Andrea Bocelli, who every year returns to his native country of Lajatico for a concert with other International artists.
A small landscape jewel of the hinterland of Volterra in the Heart of Tuscany.
