Villa | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Our family villa, reminiscent of the typical Tuscan “Leopoldino” style of architecture, was built with natural materials according to canons of bio-architecture, creating a comfortable environment.

La Colombaia is situated in open countryside on a gentle slope, surrounded by a large garden and fields planted with cypress trees, fruit trees and a biological vegetable garden, from which guests can gather fresh produce.

The grounds also host a large pond with fish and wild ducks, where in summer one can admire lovely lily pads and their splendid blossoms.
Close by, just 100 meters from the villa, is a plant nursery, the owner's business and passion, with a vast collection of tropical plants.

La Colombaia is occupied on the first floor by its owners, Paolo and Anna.
At guests' disposal:
A few steps away from the guest quarters, on the south side of the villa, is a shared with the owners swimming pool (4.5 x 9.5 meters 1.3 depth), with a slatted-oak sun deck bordered by rosemary and laurel hedges. Open from May,25 to October,5
The swimming pool, an oak solarium, and lounge chairs and umbrellas sit adjacent to the villa.
We love the fact that the villa and garden function in perfect harmony. It is a pleasure to welcome guests who love nature as much as we do, and it gives us enormous satisfaction to share in their joy.

Distances:
Just 300 metres from La Colombaia, our guests can visit the renowned bakery owned by our good friends the Bonci family, whose delicious cakes are world-famous. A 10-minute walk takes you into Montevarchi's historical center. Dating back to 1000 A.D., here you will discover lovely churches, many museums, restaurants and shops. Florence, Siena and Arezzo are only 40 minutes away by car or train. The A1 Autostrada and the railway allow easy travel to the north or south of Italy.
La Colombaia is located in the Arno River Valley at a 30 km radius from Arezzo, Siena and Florence, with the Chianti hills to the west and the Pratomagno Mountains to the east.
More than any other place, this is a land where tradition and daily life exist side by side in perfect harmony. Montevarchi, situated in the midst of what is known as unspoiled “wine country” - with its vineyards, olive trees, castles, medieval hilltop villages and churches - is one of the more lively towns south of Florence.
The old-town center of Montevarchi is only 1 km from La Colombaia.
It only 10 minutes walking distance from the villa to the old center of the town.
The history of Montevarchi dates back to circa 986, when pilgrims and travelers stopped here on their way to and from Rome.
Montevarchi: for centuries the “market town” for Valdarno, Chianti and Pratomagno – and one of the most important in Tuscany.
A meeting place for traders, townsfolk, the local livestock and grain “dealers” and above all for farmers and small local producers who, until the 1960s used all means possible to get to the town squares of Montevarchi, to make deals and sell their goods: free range chickens, vegetables, rabbits, artichokes, olive oils and chestnuts.
Today the area is famous for its contribution to the international fashion industry and boasts the location of prestigious fashion outlets like Prada and "The Mall".
The area has excellent restaurants, a farmer's market and regular train service to Florence, Arezzo, Rome (with connections to every major Italian city) More info and photos about the area
