Country Charm Meets Elegance at Agriturismo Il Colombaio
Our guests love beauty and comfort, but being pretentious is just not their style. That why we choose boutique-style accommodations that are comfortable and charming, with a homey, countryside atmosphere touched with an air of sophistication.
Il Colombaio is a historic, characteristic farmhouse, nestled along the border between Tuscany and Umbria, and conveniently located halfway between Rome and Florence. An important farm estate during the 1700s, this lovingly restored, family owned & operated property boasts stunning, 360º panoramas of the Italian countryside. Our guests rave about the gorgeous sunsets, starry nights and peaceful atmosphere that fittingly reflects the character of the region.
Sleeping rooms are uniquely decorated - some with family antiques - and are situated in a main casale, second casale, or lower wing of the property. All rooms feature private ensuite bathrooms, hair dryers and air conditioning. Free WIFI is available in common areas of the villa. In addition to an inviting swimming pool, Il Colombaio also features a sweeping panoramic terrace, cozy indoor lounging areas and an elegant restaurant.
Each morning you'll enjoy an abundant assortment of breakfast items, including freshly baked cornetti, marmelade-topped crostate and various delicious torte. Cheeses, meats and fruits are always on hand, as well as eggs, yogurts and breads. Special dietary requests? No problem! We're happy to include gluten-free items and/or dairy alternatives.
Delectable lunches and dinners (that our guests rave about!) are served up by talented Chef Adorno, whose specialties include regional favorites like tagliatelle with truffles, wild boar ragù and hand-made ravioli. Desserts are ... well ... out of this world, and might include creamy panna cotta, rich chocolate torta or Chef's incredible mille foglie. Naturally, meals are accompanied by excellent regional wines.
