A beautiful little property, rustic, rundown but utterly charming. Roberta is amazing as host. Our room was spacious, lovingly decorated. Godd fridge for purchases in town, free wifi even by the pool. No air on made for a sticky night and I could of strangled the 2 cats that fought outside our window at 3am for over an hour but one of my nicest days in Tuscany was sitting by the pool drinking Chianti Roberta bought for us. 5min walk to town. Loved it.

I visited this beautiful place on a wine tour through Tuscany, on the way to the wine fair Vinitaly. This is what you get: A small, beautiful hotel with a very friendly atmosphere and lovely Italian charme. I cannot understand other negative reviews, I was throughout positively surprised.

The website is pretty well informing you about what to expect - but my expectations were exceeded. The owner and staff are very helpful and make you feel at home. Big and cosy beds, neat and tidy room, TV and free Wifi in room.

It has been a lovely stay. Thank you!

My wife and I stayed at Il Colombaio in october 2012. It is an old farmhouse with many old furnitures inside. The owner Roberta is very kind and helpful and you can see the family members around which brings a warm atmosphere. It is not a hotel that you would want to spend too much time inside but it has many advantages. It is at a close walking distance from the town of Castellina in Chianti and there are some nice restaurants nearby and a good ice-cream shop. Travelling by car to many Tuscany towns, including Siena is easy since the location is very convenient. The price of the rooms were reasonable and we thought it was a perfect base to visit Tuscany towns.

We were loking for a nice place to stay in Tuscany that was not main tourist stop. The Hotel II Columbiao was the perfect location and our host Roberta was great. Our room was clean and located in the main house. It had a TV with satallite service. The breakfast was basic but we appreciated the fact that we didn't have to plan a breakfast stop before starting our day. I asked Roberta for a suggestion to park for a day trip to Florence (less than an hours drive) She recommended the Piazzale Michael Angelo which worked perfectly. The parking was free, and easy to get to without crossing prohibited travel zones. The view alone was work the ride and it is a easy walk to Florence. We also walked to town and had dinner, coffee, and shopping. The walk is short and level and has a great view of the Tuscan valley. We also visited Siena, less than a 30 minute ride and Volterra, about 90 minutes through Tuscan back roads. All were ealily accessable from the hotel. We drove from Rome and the hotel was easy to find. It has ample parking adjacent to the building.
We would have liked to have spent more time in Tuscany and plan to return. I would definetly plan to stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the best view.

It's a family style hotel. The mother of the owner was sitting in the lobby watching TV all day long. The room was super nice, and the staff was enthusiastic. Although it is not in the town center, but it is still within walking distance to the village, which is a beautiful place.

We stayed at this little hotel for four nights last year and thought it was absolutely lovely. Now there is no tv in the room but who cares ? We were in gorgeous Tuscany who needs tv's!! Stayed in a suite which had two bedrooms and lovely big bathroom. Very clean and very classic interior. Service was very good and the pool was great and makes this suitable for kids. Breakfast was also good - very simple which is all you need really. We will definitely stay in Hotel II Colombaio the next time - and there will be a next time we visit Castellina.
