A wonderful stay

We are a young family with a three year old child. We have just returned from a two week stay at Podere Colombaio. We had an excellent holiday, the house was exactly as described on the website and totally lived up to our expectations. The location was perfect, the view amazing, the tranquility etc. All one needs for a wonderfully relaxing holiday. The layout of the house suited us perfectly and our hosts seem to have though of everything.

It felt private and homely. Our hosts, Lucia and Maurizio were wonderfully welcoming and we hardly knew they were there but they were there when we needed something.

The house is five minute walk from Pienza which has a host of amenities, everything we needed we could get in the small town. There are numerous restaurants too.

I can highly recommend Podere Colombaio and I think we will certainly return.

Fantastic Vacation in Podere Colombaio in Pienza

The Val d'Orcia has stolen our heart and staying in Podere Colombaio was perfect for us to enjoy the amazing landscape with its warm yellow brownish colours of summer. We enjoyed so much watching the sunsets from the pergola or reading a book underneath an abricot- or plumtree. We took numerous pictures of the hills and house, which was used in the movie "The Gladiator".
The accomodation is superb: in the kitchen you can find everything to prepare yourself a delicious italian meal. For fresh ingredients it was just a 15 minutes walk to the weekly market in the centre of the town, Pienza.
Sleeping went amazingly well, although it was quite warm outside. I also appreciated so much a relax hour in the bath-tub! We did not miss a swimmingpool at all!
Breakfast in aperto on the pergola, every morning, wonderful! Diner, with candle-light and sunset over the hills, sipping a glass of Vino Nobile... We would return immediately!
Lucia was expecting us on arrival(late, sunday afternoon, so not that common), so we felt immediately welcome! For me it was very nice talking in italian with her! She gave some good tips for trips and also for restaurants, and the way to the big outlet shop :-)
Pienza itself is a lovely small town, richly decorated with flowers; one can find lots of lovely shops, some small art galleries and of course some fine restaurants. We also visited Montepulciano, Montalcino (both 20 mins drive), San Quirico d'Orcia, Bagno Vignoni, Cortona, Siena (both 1 hr drive). Our son and his girlfriend went to the sea for one day (2 hr drive) and were very excited about it!
We hope to be able to return soon and count down for next summer :-)

What a wonderful villa so very close to Pienza. Thank you so much for making us feel welcome on the day of our arrival. After everyday's excursion to another interesting destination in Tuscany, it was like coming home to our own home. I enjoyed the kitchen! We had a warm fire to relax by and plan our next days fun, while someone was cooking or making tea or coffee. Pienza is only a very short walk away and it is worth to spend at least 4 days just to see everything what this lovely village has to offer. The pergola offers a very nice outdoor space for having breakfast or sundowners, while enjoying the fantastic Val d Orcia view. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Tuscan retreat

Having visited Pienza and stayed locally in the past, we were looking for a property close to the town with views across the Val d Orcia. This villa was perfect in every way and we enjoyed a wonderful week with our 9 month old son and my elderly mother. The villa is traditional and has everything you need. The garden is superb with breathtaking views and was great for our little boy. As the property is on one level, access was good for my Mother who is actually disabled. Our hosts were wonderfully attentive and at the same time respected our privacy. We have always enjoyed this area of Tuscany and would recommend to anyone wanting to experience the Italian countryside.

We recently stayed at Podere Colombaio just outside the wonderful town of Pienza. This is a very authentic and private apartment overlooking amazing views of Tuscany! It is very spacious and great quality with beautiful historical features.

The location is perfect. With Pienza less than a mile away and then you have Montalcino, Montepulciano, and many quaint villages just minutes away. Amazing restuarants and wine!

The owners Maurizio and his mother were great and provided wonderful Italian hospitality. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well maintained.

Podere Colombaio is a great authentic Tuscan experience!

Near by are the picturesque abbeys of Sant’Antimo and Monte Oliveto Maggiore, Bagno Vignoni, Pienza, and towns of art as Montepulciano, Chiusi, Arezzo and Perugia. We are at about half an hour driving from Montalcino and three quarters of an hour from the Chianti region, Siena, Orvieto, San Gimignano; little more than an hour driving from Florence, the Tyrrhenian Sea, Viterbo and Assisi, and less than two hours far from Rome. From the farm you can clearly see the profile of Mount Amiata, whose top, equipped with excellent skiing plants, is only thirty kilometres far.

How to reach Podere Colombaio from Pienza: From Pienza follow the road Monte Amiata (Gallina); after 1 Km at the sign Pieve di Corsignano turn right, after 100 meter go straight in a gravel road at the third house turn left. Podere Colombaio is 20 meter ahead.
