The Perfect end to a wonderful two weeks in Italy
I was so happy we chose to do Tuscany at the end and Marina's place was prefect. After a lot of site seeing it was nice to slow down, relax and enjoy the view. What a beautiful farm house. We stayed in two nights cooked and sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the view along with every morning with our coffee. The apartment was the perfect size for us and came with everything we needed. Marina was the perfect host and would defiantly stay again.
Charming Cottage in the Heart of Chianti!
My Grandfather was staying in one of Marina’s rentals for 5 weeks and I stayed in the La Loggia for a little over a week to visit him, it was perfect. Comfortable king bed, with AC, and a kitchen. This place is ideal for families traveling together or if you are just looking for a peaceful escape where the Tuscan views take your stress away. Only tip is I would definitely bring some bug spray and citronella candles. Marina was lovely and such a generous hostess! Would highly recommend!
An amazing stay on a gorgeous property. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute there. We will be back!
Classic wine country stay!
The place was exactly as advertised. Beautiful cottage, wonderful pool, quiet and everything needed to make it a fantastic stay. Our host Marina did everything to make you as comfortable as possible. Her place along with the cottage, hayloft, and surroundings make this a must do!
Perfect Tuscan gem
First off, Marina was a gracious host, welcoming us to the property. The apartment was perfect and made for a comfortable stay. The private patio was awesome!...beautiful view of the countryside and a great spot to sip on wine as the sun sets. Cooling off in the pool was also wonderful. It was well kept, clean, and a great spot to bask in the sun. This property is in a perfect location to make day trips to any of the surrounding cities....Siena, Florence, and San Gimignano...not to mention the countless wine tasting opportunities! However, the smaller town of Cavriglia is just as charming and full of wonderful people! I will definitely be coming back to this spot for future Tuscan adventures! Thank you Marina!
We had a wonderful stay in Marinas house.
We wished we could have stay more days. Tuscany is a beautiful area with lots of towns to visit and after a long hot day wondering around was very nice to come back to our little cozy home!
"Il Colombaio" is located in the surroudings of Cavriglia, a small town at the gates of the Chianti, in the heart of Tuscany, an area of 40 km away. The property lies on 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 stores, shops and services, including the open-air market.
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 a few kilometers south of Cavriglia you enter the suggestive territory of the Crete Senesi.
The point of reference for cycling enthusiasts is "Tuscany Bicycle" in Gaiole in Chianti, 12 km away, where you can rent both modern and vintage bicycles.
