Overview

Pisa Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Self catering vacation rental with private pool and gardens near Siena and Pisa

Il Collonzolo is a peaceful medioeval country house rental sitting in an unspoilt valley on the border between the provinces of Siena and Pisa.

Enjoy 4 hours free access to the nearby spa. The thick stone walls and the original layout of the inner rooms give this house an ancient atmosphere and a lovely cool temperature in summer. In winter the large fireplace in the living room creates a cozy nest. The simple and rustic décor and the natural setting of the vacation house rental take you back to the slow pace of rural life. The house is made up of 3 bedrooms each with its own full bathroom two of which, a fully fitted kitchen and a living room with fireplace are on the ground floor. On the second floor, with its own entrance, sits another bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The garden develops over different levels and features different eating and relaxing spots under the secular trees, a hammock, garden chairs, a little wooden playground for children and a pool. Family friendly holiday villa rental with pool.

lovely rustic house in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

We ( 2 adults and 2 teenagers) spent a lovely week here in August 2015 .

The location was pretty remote and away from normal life, nearest shop a mile or two away and nearest restaurant 10 -15 miles away, so its a great place to stay if you want real rural Italian life.

It was great value for a house with a pooland and lots of space around for chilling, bbq-ing etc

The house itself was a bit dated and some of the rooms could do with modernising although in a funny way it added to its charm for us, others might not appreciate it though.

The highlights were the local horseriding centre centre (Fattoria)a couple of miles away which was absolutely brilliant , we all rode and our teenagers went off on a proper trek with galloping sections through the mountains/woodlands for a full day!!

The other highlight was Sienna , great for a real Italian day out and Radicondoli the closest town with a proper restaurant owned by the son of the house owner serving really really good italian food!!

Whe had a great holiday in this litle paradise

  • 4 of 5

We liked the property because it's so natural. Veglia who ownes the property is a very nice lady with a warm hart. She takes good care for the property, her guests, the animals and is very helpfull and understanding. We can recommend this property to all people who loves the silence, the nature and the tranquility. The village is quiet and peacefull and has a very nice playground for children. There are not much stores, buth you can find everything you need. The pizzeria La Pergola in Radicondoli that the owner reccomend is excellent. We did also like the pizzeria in Castelnuovo di val di Cecina.

Beautiful Country Setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful setting in Tuscany. We loved the house - a wonderful confluence of rustic and modern architecture. Sara (the owner) was awesome! She helped us plan our sight seeing and even mailed back a dress that we left behind! I would highly recommend the property to anyone seeking a quiet country setting in beautiful Tuscany. We visited Florence and nearby Siena as well as several other historic sights (Rome is about 3 1/2 hours away). As for food, you really can't go wrong; I can't recall a bad (or even average) meal - everything was delicious. The restaurant next to the pool was quite good.

Exceptional home in beautiful Tuscani

  • 5 of 5

This house is special - in the country yet a mile from a charming small, low keyed town, a remodeled farmhouse, with world class and green fixtures in excellent condition with a caring owner - on the day of our arrival, she brought us a delicious pie made by her mother.
