We stayed at Elena and Enrico's beautiful place for three nights. We had a very warm welcome (from Elena's 'ciao bella' to Enrico's espresso and comprehensive information about the area and our stay). We booked the cottage Limonaia which was even more charming than the pictures suggest (and this goes for the entire residence). The swimming pool is absolutely gorgeous with great views of the surroundings. We loved the breakfast, including fresh eggs from Elena's chickens and home made cheese, which was served on our own private terrace in front of the Limonaia cottage.
The location is nice and quiet and nearby some lovely villages. Enrico also showed us around their own oil mill which was very interesting.
We highly recommend staying at Dolci Colline and wished we would have stayed a little longer!
What a lovely cottage for 2-3 persons set in the breathtaking Tuscan countryside! My mother and I truly enjoyed the relaxing Italian pace of life in Limonaia, with its high ceilings, comfy bed, big picturesque window and front porch. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment and utensils to cook dinner, and the bathroom was nice and clean as well. Even though there were complications in our travel plans, Enrico and Elena accommodated us fantastically. We were welcomed warmly and given suggestions on where to eat and sightsee and how to get to the nearby towns, as well as Florence. Highly recommended!
Elena is a wonderful host - very helpful and pleasant to talk to. Dolci Colline Villas Limonaia is a perfect getaway on a beautiful place and I already recommended it to my dearest friends. Overall experience - wonderful! :)
Elena and Enrico were great hosts. They gave us dinner recommendations and told us the best routes for travel around Tuscany. One of the nights we were staying there, the power went out. Enrico had the power company on the scene immediately to repair it. It was such a relaxing time at their beautiful farm. They even through in a free breakfast because we were on our honeymoon!
We loved our short stay at Dolci Colline! The hosts were wonderful--very kind and welcoming. They also spoke wonderful english, which was a huge bonus. The apartment/villa was exactly as described and was perfect for a short stay in beautiful Tuscany. We hope to be able to visit again soon!
Thank you for the most amazing holiday - Dolci Colline is the perfect Tuscan escape. We were breath taken when we arrived as the whole place is stunning and the welcome was so warm. Limonaia is a sweet little cottage and the surroundings are so romantic. Enrico and Elena are the best hosts and are so helpful - we recommend the olive oil tasting and the beautiful breakfast. Our only regret is we didn't stay long enough - we are already planning our return visit to this special place. 5 stars isn't enough! Hannah & Guy
Elena and Enrico are the perfect hosts - the little house was perfect! The house is quite small, but enough for 2 people. The design is very original - all to the "Lemon"-theme. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need.
Enrico gave us a tour of the oil mill where they make their own extra virgin olive oil - very intesting and very fun!
I can definitely recommend the "Dolce Collini" houses.

About the Host, Elena
Hello, I am Elena, I am 45 years old and live in the countryside with my husband, my daughter , 6 dogs and other animals. Before living here I lived in Florence and worked in fashion, I was doing a very different life but I love the countryside and animals! now I am not a city woman but a peasant woman! In Castiglion Fiorentino (90 km from Florence) we have a holiday farm with 7 different apartments, in Florence I rent the apartment in which I lived before coming to live in the country.
I love to meet people from all over the world.!!
I am very careful to clean in fact all my apartments should be completely clean and comfortable. I ALWAYS SAY. ... IS NOT EASY DELIGHT ALL guests ... BUT IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO ASK DURING YOUR STAY YOU MUST DO IT! I am always available! I hope to see you in Florence or to Dolci Colline!!
