“Beautiful villa, perfectly located for Tuscan sightseeing.”

The listing doesn't fully do this property justice. It is even more impressive than the photos - only 35 minutes drive from Pisa airport and within easy drives of some excellent day trips such as Florence, Lucca, Monte Carlo and some amazing little Tuscan hillside towns and wineries. The owner, Stefano, made great efforts to ensure we got all that we wanted out of our stay - we had very early flights into Pisa so he allowed us to relax poolside whilst the villa was prepared for us from the previous guests and even took the trouble to book us a table at the local trattoria (Benitos - well worth a visit for steak lovers). The booking process was very simple and he was extremely prompt and helpful in getting back to us over any questions we had. The property was spotlessly clean and we were left to our own devices during our week's stay. The rooms are all of a good size - my only "negative" feedback on them would be that only the second floor rooms were air conditioned, and that the settings on that were such that it turned off after a few seconds - I suspect we just needed a tutorial on how to use it, but it could perhaps be pre-set to stay on for longer as some of the guests were finding the nights uncomfortably warm. Fans were provided for the other rooms - on the whole this was only a minor niggle and one I'm sure Stefano will attend to. The kitchen is a decent size and well equipped, and the big marble outdoor seating area is a lovely setting for evening meals. The communal lounge area comfortably sits 9 round the TV. The garden and pool area is beautiful - plenty of loungers and deck chairs for sitting round the large pool, with the occasional sound of distant church bells adding to the serene atmosphere! There are large grounds around the pool - a small kids play area is perfect for toddlers and when we visited, even a small football pitch as well as table tennis and fussball tables. The villa is on the edge of a fairly small village - there are neighbouring properties but they are not imposing. There are a couple of small shops and a couple of restaurants in the village which are an easy walk away. The little pizzeria also served really delicious pizzas and pastas at a really reasonable price and was staffed by really friendly servers. A car is definitely needed if intending to explore the surroundings - there are a few mid-sized supermarkets in Alto Pascio (sp) about a 10 minute drive away. All in all a great location - thanks from us all, Stefano!

“Fabulous Tuscan getaway...”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Villa Colombai is the perfect base from which to explore Tuscany or the perfect retreat in which to relax and take in the beauty of the countryside while spending quality time with friends and family. Space is the main advantage... a huge house with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate large families or groups of friends with a large pool and garden where children can run free and adults can always find a quiet spot. The surrounded countryside offers fantastic walks through the forests on wide paths, and restaurants and local shops are also within easy walking distance. Larger supermarkets are a short drive away. Pisa, Lucca, the beach, San Gimignano and Florence are easily accessible for day trips. This charming house is highly recommended!

“Fantastic definitely recommended”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at Villa Colombai as 3 families (6 adults and 5 children aged 4-10).

Stefano kept regular contact in the lead up to the holiday, offering to find us things to do, book excursions and providing ideas for the week. We were warmly welcomed on arrival, again with lots of help on getting settled

The villa is very well equipped both internally and externally with everything needed for a large group. The house was more than adequate in size for us and the outdoor area fantastic with a pool, outdoor games area, play equipment area, football pitch and more.

We had a fantastic time and I would highly recommend a stay at Villa Colombai.

We stayed one week with the whole family[13-76 years]in this beautiful Villa and had a wonderful time.Everything we could need was there,the bedrooms were spacious and very clean,the whole House is beautufully decorated and there is plenty of room for everyone.We spent most of our time outside,because the wheather was warm and sunny.We used the swimmingpool,the pingpongtabe and the relaxing chairs very often,but visited also nice places like Lucca,Florence and Pisa.
Everyone likes to come back next year..Our grandchildren loved the place too.
