Farm house one mile from Pienza. Pienza is a historic centre of rare and exquisite beauty. It is found in Tuscany, 40 miles from Siena, in a landscape of evocative beauty. My house faces an expansive valley dominated by Mt. Amiata. An isolated structure, it is surrounded by fields and plenty of beautiful views. The house is called 'Colombaio,' and is characterized by a tower that was once a home for pigeons. The tower structure is typical to the Tuscany area. The house has recently been renovated and retain all the character and charm of the original building with wooden ceilings and cotto floors.
On the ground floor there are an apartment of 75 sqm (sleeps 4+2), you will find the following rooms: quite large kitchen/living room with doors leading outside. From the living room, there is a small entrance that leads to the two twin bedroom.. From the entrance you will find two small but comfortable bathrooms: one with shower and the other with a bathtub. The kitchen is equipped with all dishes and a sufficient number of pots and pans.
This place is heaven on earth.
The Val d'Orcia is a very special place and when you visit once, it will be under your skin. We were lucky enough to spend 9 weeks here and loved every single minute.
The house is perfectly equipped for a very comfortable stay, it is rustic but completely charming. The shower is very powerful and with two bathrooms and two bedrooms it is a great space for two couples to stay comfortably. Excellent Wifi too.
Upstairs lives Maurizio's mother, who is a very kind and welcoming lady. You will hardly know she is there as she is out alot of the time. The house is 15 minute walk up to Pienza which is a beautiful town with everything you need, including restaurants and a few bars.
On your doorstep is the whole of the Val D'Orcia, you definitely need a car to explore all the fantastic surroundings, including Montepulciano and Montalcino.
Do not miss the Restaurant La Porta in Montechiello, by far the best dining experience in the area.
Maurizio is a fantastic host, meeting us on our arrival day, when we were a few hours late and showing us everything we needed to know, as well as being on hand when we had any queries during our stay.
We hope very much to return to Podere Colombaio next year and for many more years to come. This really is a very special place.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
