Il Colombaio 13
Il Colombaio is a peaceful oasis in the heart of Chianti Classico, with expansive views on rolling hills and rows of vineyards. The location, near the village of Gaiole in Chianti, is perfect for visiting the several hilltop villages such as Radda, Castellina and Greve, and the many fortified castles and walled abbeys of the area. Siena is also at less than 20 km away.
The property was completely restored a few years ago. The house is equipped the beautiful huge terrace stretching along the west side of the house for outdoor meals and also for sitting and relaxing, making it an ideal place where to rest and enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the Chianti landscape. There is a beautiful pool (14 x 7m) located a few steps below the terrace in one of the flat lawns of the property, making it ideal for families with children.
The discreet yet comfortably furnished interiors combining country style with a modern touch suggests a pleasant ambience. A particular feature is the very well equipped kitchen opening on to the terrace, ideal for those who love cooking and enjoy 'al fresco' dining.
