“Tuscan treasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

We spent a week at La Colombaia during our 3-week holiday in Italy. Our accommodation was all we could have asked for and really felt like an oasis after each day's meandering in the Tuscan countryside. Our hosts, Elena and Daniele are warm, helpful and go out of their way to share the Tuscan 'experience'. Danielle's Tuesday wine tour and the Friday pizza night were highlights. There is a nice social atmosphere that exists and there was always lots of advice from the other residents regarding places to visit. Really central and the swimming pool is fantastic! The main courtyard is the main congregational area, in part because the wifi reception is strongest there. Great views too!

We stayed one week, simply it is our best holiday so far. It is of a perfect size place, not too large to feel isolated and not too small to have privacy if you need it. Views from the place are breathtaking, hosts Daniel and Elena are busy looking after there vineyard but always around to help. They made for guests a tour around their winery, and treated us with pizza party. Perfect relaxing holiday.

These apartments are set in stunning Tuscany backdrop, amist the vineyards and olive groves. The owners are friendly and will do anyting they can to help make your stay as comfortable and memorable. Apartments are basic but have sufficient cooking facilities - there are BBQ's and a pizza oven in the garden. Highly recomend this as a base for relaxing, exploring and enjoying Tuscany at its best.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for a week in late May, having got a very good package deal through Thomson, with flights from London, car hire and self catering accommodation for£350 pp. Unfortunately, we didn't have great weather, so we ended up spending more time in the apartment than we would otherwise have done. It was spacious and the place is run by a nice couple, but we had a few niggles about the accommodation. On the plus side, it has a nice pool area and some good places to sit outside looking over the surrounding area, which is pretty. Our apartment was unfortunately quite dark, and it felt really damp and cold in the poor weather. It was only equipped for very basic cooking, with a microwave, toaster and hot plate - an oven would have been nice for pizzas etc. A hair dryer would also have been useful. The only soft seat was on the small 2 seater sofa bed in the living/dining area, and the real bed was very hard and uncomfy, so we didn't find it a very comfortable place to spend time. We also ended up getting loads of mosquito bites every night, which was really annoying. Wifi was supposedly available at a cost, but the signal didn't stretch as far as our apartment, and I saw another guest standing just outside reception with his iPad, which I suspect may have been the only place that there was decent reception. I hate not being able to get onto the Internet and feeling cut off when I'm away, so that was disappointing.

Bear in mind that they take their siestas seriously round there - on the Friday we went out about 1.30pm hoping to get some lunch, and we drove for 2 solid hours (not exaggerating) without finding a single restaurant or even a shop which was open so that we could buy some food. We ended up in the big shopping centre at Empoli in a very bad mood, eating fast food pizza slices in desperation!

All in all, for the price we paid we really couldn't complain, but we didn't have a vey comfortable week there. The best thing about this place is probably the location - it's very handy for day trips to Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Siena, Vinci etc, all of which we did and enjoyed.

I stayed at La Colombaia for six nights and it was absolutely wonderful. The rooms were very comfortable and the service was excellent. We went on a tour of the winery hosted by the owner. It was very easy to travel around Tuscany using the central location of La Colombaia. The host and hostess shared their experiences and gave us suggestions.

We spent a truly relaxing week here. Would we go back yes. Would we recommend yes.
Pace of life slows right down. Great trips to amazing sights. Lovely evenings in the garden
with lovely guests and even lovelier home grown wine. The hosts Elena and Daniel just want you to be happy, which we were.

We spent a week at La Colombaia, felt instantly relaxed on arrival and were made to feel incredibly welcome by the owners. The apartment was extremely comfortable although the cooking facilities could have been better. With so much to see and do in the local area, we had a week full of sightseeing and enjoying the Tuscan countryside. We recommend going to Montecatini Alto - take the funicular railway up to see the tiny, picturesque town at the top. We will be going back to La Colombaia!
