Informazioni sulla proprietà

Il Colombaio

Nestled in the hills that extend from the Chianti towards the Arno river valley, on the border between the provinces of Florence, Siena and Arezzo, lies Il Colombaio, a characteristic and charming old farmhouse surrounded by silvery-green olive groves.

The property is composed of three buildings: the farmhouse, the hayloft and the stable.

The farmhouse is partly inhabited by Andrea and Marina; it has an independent apartment on the ground floor, while the hayloft and the stable have been trasformed into two small houses. The buildings are surrounded by an olive grove and an extensive lawn where the swimming pool is located, in an isolated and panoramic position.

Il Colombaio offers you the chance to enjoy the everyday pleasures of life in Tuscany, the beauty of the Tuscan countryside and its authentic rhythms, as well as being the ideal starting point for exploring this region.

Whether you want to visit the popular sights in Tuscany, or to hike or bike amidst the hills of Chianti and the Crete Senesi, at the end of a busy day you can find the warm feeling of coming home and relax.

Each apartment is independent and has a private garden, equipped with table, chairs and sun chairs. Because your privacy is our priority, and we want you to feel right at your own home.

Il Colombaio is the ideal place for those who love ciclying: Andrea is an amateur cyclist, he knows all the routes in this part of Tuscany, and is always willing to provide help and suggestions and, on request, guided tours.

The famous vintage cycling event “L’Eroica” takes place in Gaiole in Chianti, just 12 km from here, the first weekend of October, during the traditional grape harvest.

About INTERNET - Please be advised that here, as well as in many Italian rural areas, the Internet connection may be slower than expected, and the data allowance is limited. This means that you can use Internet for browsing, e-mailing, voice calling, but you'll have to give up live streaming, up/downloading large files, online gaming and video calling. If these activities are your priority, we suggest you to search for an accommodation that ensures a reliable and unlimited connection (cities and towns are generally better served than rural locations).

Please understand that the quality of the internet connection does not depend on us: we share with our guests the same service that the Companies give us. As always happens, rural areas are left behind by technological advancements but, on the other hand, it is precisely this "slow time" that makes the Tuscan countryside so appealing as a holiday destination.

Su Marina

We are a family of 3: Andrea, Marina and our daughter.

Marina acquistò questa casa nel 2003

Perché Marina ha scelto Cavriglia

We think this is an ideal place to live. Cavriglia is surrounded by the most beautiful places in Tuscany: Chianti, Crete Senesi, the cities of Florence, Siena and Arezzo, just to mention the closest ones; at the same time Cavriglia is an “authentic” village, because it is only lightly touched by the tourist routes.

Che cosa rende questa casa unica?

Our property combines privacy and comfort, the typical atmosphere of the old Tuscan farmhouses and the quality of being at hand. We are always happy to welcome guests who choose to stay in our region and help them, if they want, get the most from their holiday. Many travelers don’t venture outside the major destinations. For this reason, they sometimes go back home thinking that Tuscany is a mostly touristy destination with lots of tourists everywhere. Quite to the contrary. If you are ready to venture off the beaten path and see more than what you find in guidebooks, you will go home with a completely different image of this amazing region, certainly one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Great place to Stay!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Il Colombio which is a well equipped 2 bed ground floor apartment in a nicely refurbished farmhouse. It was heartening to find that the pictures on the Owners Direct website are very accurate unlike some holiday accommodation ads. It is set in a beautiful area with amazing views and easy access via the narrow winding roads to the superb medieval towns that the area is famous for. We are now Chianti Classico converts after visiting the early September wine festival in Greve! As there is no Air Con we were lucky in that our 2 week stay saw the temperature drop 10 C to the mid 20s but still very pleasant and warm at night. The pool is a lovely feature and the accommodation felt private but not isolated as there are two other holiday properties on site as well as Marina and her family going quietly about their business. My view is that it deserves 4.5 stars and improved telecoms/WiFi (and air con for the hot months) would definitely make it 5*

Beautiful and quiet place in rural Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and quiet property on a hill above a small village. Beautiful and fresh mornings with roosters in the houses scattered on the hills, and beautiful evenings. Hot afternoons can be spent on the pool. Scenic curly roads leading in and out. A kind and nice owner. We did not want to leave. But if we happen to visit again, I will ask for a better internet connection. It really helps in planning the next day.

un cadre et un accueil exceptionnels

  • 5 of 5

Merveilleusement situé en pleine campagne Toscane, à mi chemin entre Florence et Sienne toutes deux accessibles facilement par train(c'est un conseil à donner), ce gîte est extrêmement confortable et conserve une vraie fraicheur sans climatisation par 30° à l'extérieur. Outre les visites de Florence et Sienne, sa situation nous a permis de découvrir des villages ou villes comme Castellina in chianti ou Arezzo. Quant à l'accueil par Marina il a été non seulement parfait mais aussi chaleureux. Tout était parfait!

Great choice.

  • 4 of 5

The il colombaie spot was a quaint authentic building in a beautiful area around Tuscany. Our spot was clean and a perfect size for 3 or 4 people. The pool is a wonderful addition and the town of Cavriglia is very close and has all you need.

Marina was very accommodating to many changes in our schedule. She was helpful and also let us feel very private. The house has all you need but recommend to bring essentials like shampoo, dish soap etc if you are coming for a longer stay.

We were very happy there and would recommend and return to this spot again.

Charming and delightful

  • 5 of 5

We had a most fabulous time at the farmhouse for 9 days. The views are amazing and you can take advantage of walking around there. If up to it, you can walk down to Cavriglia (the little town down the hill). Montevarchi, the nearest town is quite nice for shopping for food. We walked up the hill to the old church above and were surprised to see the little zoo with peacocks!!! The location is so central...Arezzo is the capital of old towns and within a 45 min drive, you can visit dozens of medieval towns. Of course, Siena and Florence are a must. We went down to the lake which was also very nice. The wine, the food and the vistas were all breathtaking. We miss it already. And thanks Marina for your kind hospitality. We will definitely be there again. Cheers, Daisy and Peter

Freundlicher Empfang, zuverlässigesehr gute Wegbeschreibung, Küche gut ausgestattet, Einrichtung guter Mix aus alt und Idea. Wunderschöner Garten und Pool. Erholsam ruhig gelegen und doch zentral für Ausflüge nach Siena, Arrezzo, Florenz, La Vialla. Martina zwei schmusefreudige Kater kommen gerne vorbei. War ein sehr angenehmer Aufenthalt.

Il Colombaio is located in the surroudings of Cavriglia, a small town at the gates of the Chianti, in the historic heart of Tuscany, equally distant from the cities of Florence, Siena and Arezzo which are approximately 40 km away. The property lies on the side of the hill that descends from Montaio to Cavriglia; Montaio is an ancient hamlet, where you can enjoy the panorama of the entire valley. Although Il Colombaio is located in the open country, it is only 1,5 km far from Cavriglia, 20 minutes walking. In Cavriglia you find coffee bars, restaurants, food shops, laundromat, bank and chemist.

Both the towns of Montevarchi and San Giovanni Valdarno are only 8 km away: here are railway stations and every kind of shops, stores and services, including the open-air market every Thursday morning, in Montevarchi, and every Saturday morning in San Giovanni.

The easy access to the motorway A1/E 35 Milan-Florence-Rome (the Valdarno exit is only at 13 km) allows you to reach numerous interesting spots within a short time, both in Tuscany and Umbria, while few kilometers south of Cavriglia you enter the suggestive territory of the Crete Senesi.

The point of reference for all cycling enthusiasts is "Tuscany Bicycle" in Gaiole in Chianti, 12 km away, where you can rent both modern and vintage bicycles.
