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.
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 have been completely restored 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, with modern conference tools and materials.
The Village of Tignano borders one of the most beautiful and notable 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 ‘Tatti Forest’, with its particular vegetation is also very close to the village. A Golf field is located just 30 minutes from the Village and the sea is only about 45 minutes away.
In addition to the homes of the owners who personally run the Village, there are 13 apartments, a conference/meeting/performance room for 70 people, a restaurant for guests, an exhibition of Tignano's and Tuscan countryside's typical products, a library, a laundry room and a large 8 x 16 meters swimming pool.
Also located in the village are two typical elements of the great rural communities of past times: a remarkable rustic chapel and a large fully functional wood-fired oven.
