The current village of Tignano is a rural complex dating back to the early 1600s, but its name refers to an ancient Roman origin. It is said that in the fourth century A. D. Santa Attinia was born here, one of the saints highly venerated in Volterra.

Antico Borgo di Tignano

Among its most famous guests was Pope Pius IX who hosted the Piarist of Volterra in1800 at the Village. 

Located in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, the village of Tignano, is the perfect place for those who wish to combine art and nature. Its strategic location makes it the ideal base to visit the major Tuscan cities such as Siena (45 km), Volterra (20 km), San Gimignano (22 Km), Florence (70 km) Pisa (80 Km) or excursions to visit the ‘unspoiled’ countryside.

The houses of the village has been completely renovated with lush gardens, which with its texture of herbs, bushes of juniper, myrtle and mastic shows the typical varieties found in the Mediterranean region, with its intense fragrance.

In addition, the Village has a meeting/conference/performance room that can accommodate up to 70 people, complete with modern conference tools and materials.

The Village of Tignano borders one of the most beautiful and prised areas of the region called the Val di Cecina. The area, in fact, has three nature reserves known as “SCI” (Sites of Community Interest): Montenero, Monterufoli-Caselli and Berignone.  The ‘forest of touch’, with its particular vegetation is also very close to the village. A Golf Course located just 30 minutes from the Village and the Mediterranean sea is only about 45 minutes away.

In addition to the homes of the owners who personally run the Village, there are 13 luxury apartments, a conference/meeting/performance room for 70 people, a restaurant for guests, a shop selling local products and basic travel staples, a room-library with wireless internet service, a laundry room and a large swimming pool 8 x 16 meters.

Also located in the village are two typical elements of the great rural communities of an earlier time: an exquisite rustic chapel and a large wood-burning oven in perfect working order.

True life.

True life.

The renovation of the structures was completed by using only original, traditional and natural materials, wherever possible. The ceilings of several buildings were cleverly reconstructed by using the original ``Volterra's volticciole``. On the top floors, the exposed roof is entirely rebuilt using traditional techniques, exposing the original beautiful wood beams and joists. The plaster used in the walls is a mixture of rustic local compounds alternated with original brick and stone.
