La Mattonaia is a welcoming and comfortable apartment located on the ground floor of Il Colombaio, a characteristic old farmhouse that lies on the side of a hill, nestled among olive trees and vineyards. The apartment has an independent entrance from the courtyard and direct access to the garden at the rear. It is fully decorated with period furniture and antiques, family heirlooms dating back to the 1800s and early 1900s, which create a particularly warm and cozy atmosphere.

The space
Il Colombaio is composed of 3 buildings: the farmhouse, the hayloft and the stable. The farmhouse is partly inhabited by our family, while the ground floor houses La Mattonaia. The hayloft and the stable have been transformed into two small cottages: Il Fienile and La Loggia. The buildings are surrounded by an olive grove and a lawn where the swimming pool is located, in an isolated and panoramic position.
La Mattonaia is an apartment of about 60 sqm, consisting of a large living/dining room with kitchen corner, a bedroom with a double bed (160x190 cm), a bedroom with two single beds (80x190 cm) that can be joined together, a bathroom with shower box. The living room has direct access to the garden at the rear, equipped with table, chairs, umbrella and sun chairs.
All the windows are protected with screens (mosquito nets). Independent heating. Wi-Fi. The kitchen is equipped with a 4-ring stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge with freezer, as well as Nespresso machine, coffeemaker, toaster, kettle.
We provide all bed and bath linen, changed on a weekly basis.

! IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO CONSIDER BEFORE BOOKING !

HEATING - As this service is just occasionally needed and its use varies with lifestyles and personal tastes, it is included in the rental price up to an average consumption of 2 units per day. Over this amount it is charged as extra, according to meter readings taken upon guest arrival and departure and based on the current energy cost per unit. The meter is located inside the apartment so our guests can check and manage their consumption at any time.

INSECTS - ... not only mosquitoes! In recent summers we have also been experiencing unusual and prolonged heat waves which, in the countryside, bring with them a large number of horseflies. In these periods, stifling heat and aggressive insects can make it impossible to stay outdoors during the day. If you are planning a countryside vacation during the summer, please be aware that this risk exists. Here at Il Colombaio, all the windows are protected with screens and we have also placed screens in the pool area; however, take all the necessary information and precautions before leaving.

INTERNET - Please be advised that here at Il Colombaio, as well as in many Italian rural areas, the Internet connection may be slower than expected and, especially in the event of thunderstorms, temporary interruptions may occur.

POOL - The pool is shared by the guests of the property; no visitors/ousiders are allowed. It is open from the beginning of May to the end of September.

Guest access
The pool is shared by the guests of the property: no visitors/outsiders are allowed. The pool (10x5 m.) is salt-water and open from the beginning of May to the end of September. There is no lifeguard service: guests use the pool on their own responsibility. Everyone is kindly requested to keep the area in order, put the sun-beds back in their place and close the umbrellas when leaving the pool.

Other things to note
The rent does NOT include:
- tourist tax (1 Euro per person per night, for a maximum of 5 nights, excluding children under 12) to be paid on site;
- any extras: heating over 2 units per day (to be paid according to the consumption); laundry service: 5 Euro.

During your stay
We are always happy to welcome guests who choose to stay in our region and help them, if they want, get the most from their holiday. Many travelers don’t venture outside the major destinations. For this reason, they sometimes go back home thinking that Tuscany is a mostly touristy destination with lots of tourists everywhere. Quite to the contrary. If you are ready to venture off the beaten path and see more than what you find in guidebooks, you will go home with a completely different image of this amazing region, certainly one of the most beautiful places in the world.
