About this listing
Beautiful country house apartment, with a lovely pergola and a garden in front of the Val d'Orcia park, 10 minutes walking from Pienza
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.
There are all necessary appliances: oven, gas stovetop, refrigerator, freezer and washing machine. Linens and towels are available for all the bedrooms and bathrooms. The heating costs are not included.
A free Wi-Fi Internet Connection is available throughout the building.
Guests have full access to the pergola in front of the entrance of the apartment, available with table and chairs to make a fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner in front of the Val d'Orcia.
The garden in front of the apartment is fully available to guests.
Other Things to Note
The heating costs are not included. The wood for the fireplace is available
This is such a lovely place to stay. The house is very comfortable and makes a great base for exploring the Val d'Orcia. The views from the yard are breathtaking and its a relaxing walk into Pienza. We had our 4 1/2 year old daughter and it was a great house for children. We were able to cook dinner there after a day of exploring. Be sure to purchase fresh pasta from the shop just beyond the COOP grocery store. I would recommend this home to anyone traveling with a small child.
The views are even better in person. It was a wonderful place to stay. Sitting out at night under the stars was very relaxing and beautiful.
All the rooms are on the ground floor which makes it great for anyone who has issues with stairs. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals. The common room is rustic but sufficient. The wi-fi was good. We never used the TV.
Maurizio was very helpful. On-site Lucia was very responsive when we had questions. We used Maurizio's recommendation to hire a driver, Ilario Ghezzi, when we wanted to tour the area. Ilario took very good care of us throughout the week.
The 10 minute walk to Pienza is generally uphill. The small, friendly, town has anything you need. We will stay here again.
We spent 7 days in the apartment. The apartment is beautiful, comfortable and looking over the amazing Val d'Orcia. The apartment is very well kept and useful. This is the perfect place for a small family (we were 3 adults and 2 small kids).
We were very nicely were received by Maurizio who also gave us great tips on the area. Even though the weather was not perfect, we made use of the beautiful garden and took nice strolls in valley. Definitely going back.
Special thanks to Lucia, Maurizio's mother who Maurizio was extremely helpful and discreet.

Io e la mia famiglia abbiamo trascorso due settimane incantevoli in quello che noi riteniamo uno dei luoghi più belli d'Italia. La casa infatti si affaccia sulla Val d'Orcia ed offre un paesaggio veramente incantevole. La Sig.a Lucia ci ha amabilmente accolti ed è stata molto disponibile e discreta. La casa è ampia, accogliente e ben attrezzata. Abbiamo usufruito della bellissima pompeiana esterna e del giardino senza limite alcuno. Il luogo è molto silenzioso perché un pò appartato rispetto al centro di Pienza ma allo stesso tempo molto comodo sia alla cittadina che ad altre località interessanti da visitare. Sicuramente ci torneremo.
Nous avons été très bien reçus par Maurizio qui a eu la gentillesse de nous amener de Sienne notre location précédente à (website hidden) location est tout a fait conforme à la description et la vue est époustouflante.Avec une voiture il est facile d'aller à Montalcino et Montepulciano.
Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Aufenthalt in Podere colombaio. Die Lage ist großartig mit einer traumhaften Aussicht über Val d'orcia bis hin zum Amiata.
Es ist ein sehr schönes Haus im wundervollen alten toskanischen Stil mit einem traumhaften Garten mit atemberaubender Aussicht.
Die Wohnung ist sehr schön eingerichtet.
Besonders geeignet für Kleinkinder, da keine Treppen innerhalb der Wohnung oder zum Garten vorhanden sind.
WLAN ist frei verfügbar und optimal zur Reiseplanung.
Das Haus liegt wunderbar ruhig nur wenige Gehminuten unterhalb von Pienza. Nur wenige Meter entfernt von den Drehorten zum Film "Gladiator".
In unmittelbarer Umgebung findet man die bekanntesten Fotomotive der Toskana, wie die Kapelle vitaleta oder die belvedere villa.
Pienza selbst ist wohl eine der schönsten städte der Toskana.
Maurizio war uns ein hervoragender freundlicher Gastgeber, welcher uns wichtige Tips und Empfehlungen für unseren Urlaub gab. Besonderen Dank hierbei an Maurizios Mutter.
Die Temperaturen waren im Juni noch nicht so hoch und daher angenehm für unser dreijähriges Kind.
Podere Colombaio is a beautifull historic house with an awesome view over val d'orcia.
Just a 10 minute walk away from pienza.
Podere Colombaio is still
The best place when u like to visit val d'orcia.
