We really enjoyed our time at Dolci Colline, the place is perfectly situated in the heart of Tuscany, minutes away from Cortona and an easy driving distance to many surrounding towns. The bungalow itself was a perfect size for the two of us, nice and clean with a well-equipped kitchen, and the shared pool was an added bonus. Elena and Enrico were fantastic hosts, they gave us a very warm welcome and had useful recommendations of things to do during our stay. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Tuscany.
Perfect vacation in beautiful Tuscany!
We had an amazing stay at Dolci Colline. The entire property is beautifully maintained. Our apartment was nicely furnished and located close to the pool. We especially loved the breakfast that was served right in front of our apartment on the private terrace. Also Enrico's free tour to the olive oil mill was amazing. The place is nice for some relaxing days, but also for city trips to the beautiful Tuscan cities such as Siena, Cortona and Castiglion Fiorentino. Elena and Enrico were amazing hosts, gave great advice and were extremely helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this place!
Dolci Colline is a located on a beautiful spot . It has a lot of character. It almost feels like a small village on it's own. We were welcomed by Enrico who made us feel very welcome from the start. Elena we met later. During our stay Enrico and their daughter offered us fresh biological vegatables from the garden and eggs. The small kitchen was outfitted well and enabled us to cook and use the fresh products.
Our apartment was Capannina. A small one room, two person, atmospheric apartment. Although slightly smaller than anticipated we loved it. Nice and clean on arrival with airconditioning enough to keep us cool with outside temperatures reaching 36+ degrees C. For guests interested in this apartment we do suggest taking soft luggage. Space for storing suitcases is non existent. We managed, but in hindside would have taken foldable bags with wheels.
The small terrace offered space for two, enough to have breakfast in the morning and diner in the evening. If however the weather does not permit eating outside, there is only a small table inside. Luckily the weather in Tuscany is mostly good.
The pool is large, surrounded by tiles and well kept grass, and easily accomodates all quests. It is kept immaculately clean. No unnecessary chemicals, which gave it a more natural feeling. Enough beds too, and as good as new. We had no problem finding either a sunny spot or one that offered some shade, if necessary.
Dolci Colline is nearby the nice village of Castiglion di Fiorentino, Arrezzo and Cortona. Florence is a bit more than an hour by train, with free parking near the station. An ideal spot to visit Tuscany's highlights.
hello Marcello thank you for your nice review but I have to answer you about space in the CAPANNINA.
In fact the CAPANNINA is our smallest apartment for this reason has a low price. the other seven apartments have cost more but are larger. regarding the cleaning service is possible to do so for a fee.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Capannina cottage. Both Elena and her husband were really helpful, showing great restaurants and sights as well as their own olive oil production and arranging a tour at a local winery just for us. The cottage were clean and well kept as well as the surroundings.
Thank you Elena and Enrico for those relaxing days we could spend at Dolci Colline. You were really friendly, helpful and open-hearted which allowed us to feel absolutely comfortable.
Capannina was not very spacious but cosy and nicely furnished. We also enjoyed the big pool area surronded by trees and green fields.
One day, Enrico brought us to the "Frantoio"- the place where they produce their extra vergine olive oil. The tour through the manufactory was very authentic and interesting. At the end we could taste typical bruschette and were also offered a glass of homemade wine.
We absolutely recommend the place to people who like to relax off the beaten track.
Staying at Dolci Colline was so peaceful and relaxing. The surroundings are beautiful, quiet and perfectly maintained by Elena and Enrico. We had the privilege staying there for 6 nights and we just didn't want to go when the time came. The location is fantastic, with great views and so many places in a driving distance within 1 hour or less. We highly recommend to have breakfast at the terrace, just perfect start of a day sitting there enjoying the bird singing, flowers and calm.
Agriturismo Dolci Colline is the perfect place to step out from the daily life!
Elena and Enrico creates a feel good oasis im middle of olive plantations with fantastic view to the city of Castiglion Fiorentino.
Appartments and surrounding areas are clean, the swimming pool is only one step from the apartment and offers on hot days a refreshing.
During our stay we used the possibilty to do a olive oil tasting at their olive mill, excellent stuff.
We enjoyed our trip and can only recommend this charming place.
