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.
We completely loved our stay with Elena and Enrico, what beautiful people who made us feel so very welcome. DolciColline Capannina was everything we dreamed it would be, just like the pictures showed. The pool was gorgeous and the view of Castiglion Fiorentino was magical. We celebrated our 25th anniversary here and Capannina was the perfect place for just that-very romantic and the perfect jumping off point to visit all the hillside walled cities that surrounded us. We loved Cortona, Castiglion Fiorentino, Siena and took the fast train from Florence to Venice, and also took a day trip to Cinque Terre during our 7 night tour of Tuscany. We rented a car but I would recommend renting one with GPS as Italy is huge and we would get lost searching for towns without it. There is a reason that DolciColline received a 5 star rating with Trip advisor, Elena and Enrico keep a very clean and well maintained property, I will gladly stay here again and recommend to anyone I know who plans to visit Tuscany. Enrico gave us a tour of the olive oil plant where he demonstrated the process of making olive oil which his family has been doing for generations. I loved seeing his passion for an age old family tradition. We sampled and bought his olive oil and his fine red wine. Elena's passion besides DolciColline is her love of animals, she nursed baby birds who fell out of their nest, she has a pigeon named Albertino that fell in love with her and you can often see him following her around from tree to tree, or riding on top of her head. We loved their dogs Lulee and Draco and Albertino the pigeon. I have absolutely zero complaints, and nothing but love for Elena and Enrico and DolciColline and our little romantic Capannina. I will remember this trip with such beautiful memories, my favorite two are seeing the olive trees at night with fireflies dancing all around them-so magical, and finally laying by the pool in the hot sun with Castiglion Fiorentino in the background, if I close my eyes I am right back there. Much love to you both~ Teresa and Ken
Wir hatten einen wundervollen Aufenthalt in DolciColline, die Anlage inklusive Pool ist sehr gepflegt. Die Gastgeber Elena und Enrico sind wirklich tolle Gastgeber, die wenn erwünscht einem auch das Frühstück bereiten und auch gerne mal ein Schwätzchen halten :) Wir konnten uns dort sehr gut erholen, waren viel mit den Rädern in den umliegenden Bergen unterwegs oder im bezaubernden Tal joggen.
Wir können DolciColline uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen. Weiter so!
Our stay at Dolci Colline was amazing. The private cottage is beautiful, the bed is comfortable and the view is unbeatable. Elena was a great host and very accommodating to our schedule. Her husband was even kind enough to show us his Olive Oil mill. I would definitely stay here again! The ONLY small concern was the cottage does not have Wifi which made it difficult to research places to go at night. (the reception area does have wifi, but it is outside and public).
Ahhh, what can I say. Dolci Colline is amazing! Elena and Enrico go above and beyond to make their guests feel at home, and we absolutely did. We didn't want to leave! We had a delicious 4-course dinner brought to our apt the night we arrived, which I highly recommend doing. There is nothing better than home cooked Italian and a bottle of red wine brought to your own cottage. We also ordered breakfast in bed two days. As an American that is used to eggs in the am (which is a bit difficult to find in Itay) the breakfast with eggs, cheese, toast, juice, coffee, jams, yogurt and something sweet was a perfect way to start our adventures.
The cottage was clean, comfortable and there was plenty of hot water along with great toiletries. We loved all of the animals on the property - 6 sweet dogs (hi Drago!) and a pet pigeon named Albertino that took a liking to my husband. Elena gifted us a bottle of their own delicious wine and olive oil. We also purchased additional OO to take home as gifts.
Dolci Colline is located up a long winding road, but that is all part of the charm, and it is still very close to a town with everything you need. When we arrived our GPS got us a bit lost but a neighbor was kind enough to hop in her car and show us the way. I would get an exact address in the future incase you are not as lucky in finding someone to assist.
We took trips to Castiglion Fiorentino, Cortona, Siena, Florence and Chianti en Greve. We would definitely return to Dolci Colline and we highly recommend staying there for an authentic Tuscan experience!
It was a lovely stay! The place is great and big, you really feel like living in the nice Tuscany house. Elena and Enrico are wonderful hosts, who made us feel very at home. They where very helpful with questions we had and gave us some nice recommendations of the places to visit and restaurants so eat. We defenetly recommend this place its very well located. The best part was when we went for a tour of Enrico's own Extra Virgen Olive Oil production! Was very interesting to see how the process is made and at the end taste the olive oil right there in the place! DELICIOUS!
Elena and Enrico, once again thank you for everything!
We had an excellent stay at Dolci Colline. We were able to use the mountain bikes every day and the hosts even gave us a bottle of their wine on the last day. The pool is absolutely beautiful and the location is ideal being only an hour's train ride from Florence, and a 20 minute bus ride to Cortona. Highly recommend.
