Not so far from the attractive Etruscan walls of Volterra, The Chiostro delle Monache is an ancient Franciscan convent, that was built together with the Church of San Girolamo in 1445 a.C. by the municipality and then assigned to the Franciscan order. Restored as a Hostel, The Chiostro delle Monache offers now some agreeably furnished private rooms, all with private bathroom and shower, and facilities, that you can find in higher hotels. Our aim is to propose a new idea of Hostel, closer to a low cost Hotel, perfect for families, study trip, business trips, groups, friends

Situated at only one km from Porta a Selci and the Etruscan Museum, this Hostel is situated in a quiet position, far from the city chaos and traffic, with the possibility to park the car free of charge. From her you can reach the most important cultural cities as Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano and the seaside.

Without structural barriers, this facility is well characterized by the internal marvelous cloister surrounded at the four sides by an open gallery, built respecting the drawing of Michelozzo (sculptor and architect in Donatellos laboratory), where you can sit and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the ancient Franciscan Convent, just a good stop.

We offer a small caffetteria, a tv corner and a reading room, a wi-fi connection is free of charge, but also a beautiful frescoed hall, where breakfast is generally served. By reservation it is also available for dinners, brunches, business meetings, ceremonies and parties.
And for our younger guests, we have a play area, interior, where they can spend some time in the heat of summer and get to know with other children.

At the back of the Chiosco there is a wide free parking available for all our guests and free of charge.
