La Colombaia is a leopoldine house, typical residence of the 16th century of the Val di Chiana, finely restored respecting the material and original architectonic characteristics. These antique farmhouses take their name form its creator, the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo, who decided to finance their construction in order to improve the living conditions of the farmers of the Val di Chiana, after the drainage of the swamp land.

In this wonderful Villa in the Tuscan countryside, thanks to a professionally led work of recovery, one can admire all the typical architectonic characteristics of the Leopoldine which this antique rural home has kept intact throughout the centuries.

Today, a wisely use of colors and high quality materials have made La Colombaia a unique property, unique in its kind, able to unite with taste and simplicity all the charm of the antique Tuscan tradition to the highest quality standards of modern living.

The wonderful park around the Villas hosts the big swimming-pool (6x14 meters), open from May until September and is surrounded by secular, olive and cypress trees. The pool disposes of parasols and sun beds and is reserved exclusively for the use of the guests. From the park of Villa La Colombaia, placed in an extraordinary natural context, one can enjoy the sun throughout the day and admire a splendid sunset with a view on the rolling Tuscan hills, among rows of cypresses, vineyards and olive trees, and of Cortona, the antique Etruscan town, which can be reached in less than ten minutes.
