Description from manager

Description

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. La Colombaia is an old farmhouse set in the heart of Florentine Chianti, 30 km from Florence, among the splendid hills surrounding Montespertoli, a well-known “wine town”. In 2002 the owners began renovation work on the old farmhouse, used in recent years as a storehouse for the estate. The salvage work was very thorough, maintaining and reusing the original structures and materials, bringing back a farmhouse which today greets guests with terracotta floors and ceilings, chestnut beams, sandstone fireplaces and stairs, walls hand-painted by spatula, wrought iron railings and accessories, the typical décor of the Tuscan countryside. The villa is surrounded by a wonderful park, at complete disposal of the guests, with a panoramic pool, the ideal spot for spending the hot summer days. La Colombaia is an excellent departure point for visiting the most beautiful attractions in Tuscany, from famous art cities like Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Volterra and San Gimignano to not less famous little Chianti towns like Greve in Chianti, Castellina in Chianti and Gaiole in Chianti. NOTE: THE BUILDING NEXT TO THE HOUSE IS NOT AT CLIENTS USE AS THIS IS A PRIVATE STOREHOUSE USED BY THE OWNERS. NO OTHER GUESTS WILL BE ONSITE

Interior

The villa has two floors plus a tower. The ground floor is divided into two wings, the first composed of a sitting room with (ornamental) fireplace, a dining room, a kitchen and a bathroom with shower. The second wing is divided into a sitting room with fireplace, a large kitchen (not in use) and a toilet. The two wings are connected by a door in the main kitchen. The first floor, reached by a staircase from both the right and left wings, is composed of 2 double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom with shower, two twin bedrooms with joinable beds, a double bedroom and two bathrooms with shower. From this floor a staircase leads up to the tower with a twin bedroom with joinable beds.

Park

La Colombaia is surrounded by a 2.000 sq m. garden, a carpet of green grass framed by rose bushes, laurel and herbs. In various corners of the garden you can cool off in the shade of large trees, cypresses, lime and mulberry trees. You can enjoy the panorama, sitting in the garden or around the pool, which makes this property unique and appreciated by all those who love the beauty of the landscape and nature. But it will be just as pleasant to spend time with friends savouring the typical dishes and good wine in the open air, dining in the large stone-paved courtyard outside the two kitchens of the house.

Swimming Pool

The pool, situated 10 metres from the house, is reached along six steps and fenced. Of rectangular shape, it measures 12 x 6 m with a varying depth from 1.30 to 1.60 m; it is purified with chlorine and is lined in grey PVC which blends well with the surrounding landscape. Access to the water is by large steps. The border is paved in terracotta and the solarium area is lawn, furnished with sunbeds, deckchairs, small tables and sun umbrellas. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October.
