Tuscan villa sleeps 8 + 1 w/pool & stunning views

Il Colombaio di Montebenichi is an ancient traditional Tuscany farmhouse originally built in the year 1232. It is only steps away from the quaint hamlet of Montebenichi on a hilltop at about 500 meters above sea level, with breathtaking views, and only 20 minute car drive from Siena.

This villa rental with pool is surrounded by a beautiful and unspoiled natural environment, in the very heart of Tuscany, at the south-eastern border of the Chianti, a world renown wine area. It dominates a valley called “the Valdambra”, which has preserved the integrity and beauty of its territory. Customers that have stayed at the villa consistently comment ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Il Colombaio is located only 300 meters from the charming medieval town of Montebenichi, that sits atop a hill at 510 metres above sea level and is surrounded by a beautiful and unspoiled natural environment, in the very heart of Tuscany, at the south-eastern border of the Chianti.

The villa has unspoiled views that reach all the way to the mountains and the sea, perched above the valle of the river Ambra, which is a tributary of the well known Arno river that flows through Florence. The surrounding area is a peaceful and productive landscape with woods, vineyards, olive trees and active wildlife, scattered with villages and castles, and at every turn a splendid panoramic view.

The house location is ideal for those who loves nature, as from the house, there are several trekking tracks that take you in the the woods and allow you to enjoy first hand the nature around you.

From Montebenichi, the Chianti road winds around woods, olive groves and vineyards taking you to medieval villages, imposing castles, and wineries. It takes 40 minutes to drive to either of two world renown wine areas such as Montalcino (important for its Brunello) in the southwest and Montepluciano (known for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano) in the southeast of Tuscany, and of course you are all ready in Chianti.

Slightly south of Montebenichi, you find the “Crete Senese”, an extraordinary and unique land known for its clay lomes (which give it its name), unique views and the thermal spa town of Rapolano, with its natural hot springs of sulphuric-calcium thermal waters that come out of the ground at 38°C (100 F). It takes 20 minutes by car drive to get to the two spa resorts in Rapolano Terme.

The house is located 1 hour drive from Florence and Florence's airport, 2 hours from Pisa and 2 1/2 hours from Rome’s airport and 20 minutes from Siena.
