First of all thanks for coming to retrieve us when our car rental fell through and for taking us shopping for groceries and back to get the car. Your place is heaven on earth. The gardens, the house, spectacular. You provided everything that was needed for our comfort. Your hospitality and information and advice were very much appreciated. We will certainly recommend this place to everyone.

“Perfection!”
Reviewed 15 December 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Our stay this past spring was perfection. We were met on arrival by David who offered a glass of wine while we chatted about the area and he made some recommendations. The gardens are beautiful and the olive grove perfect for a stroll. Morning coffee was even more delicious taken on the sunny terrace, joined by Flint and Rocco!
The area is very central to southern Tuscany with short drives to Cortona, Montepulciano and Siena. Our favourite was the nearby hilltown of Lucignano with the marvelous restaurant of "Il Goccino". We ending up eating there 3 times.
La Colonica was the perfect place to stay with comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen (with home grown olive oil) and all the comforts of home in Tuscany! Cesare and David were hosts. We will definitely try to arrange a return trip!

“The Complete Package”
Reviewed 4 December 2011 for a stay in May 2010

Four of us stayed in this delightful, extremely well equipped villa for one week and I only complaint was that we didn't have more time to spend there. The owners and hosts, David and Cesare have thought of everything to make your stay extremely comfortable and relaxing. The villa is light and airy with big bedrooms and accompanying ensuites. This is a rarity in Italy. It is so tastefully furnished that we could have happily bought the place, lock, stock and barrel. The villa is located in an authentic little village that is not overrunn with tourists but is very central to all major towns and attractions. You will need a car but parking is not a problem at the villa. Being surrounded by 5 acres of beautiful gardens and an olive grove made for a very tranquil existence which was just perfect after a hectic day of sightseeing. The kitchen is well equipped and we made full use of this every night as we love to cook and there was nothing better than sitting around the dining table and staring out at the gorgeous vista of Tuscan hills and cypress pines. I have to say that having the week at la Colonica was the highlight of our trip and we look forward to returning. We have no hesitation in recommending this outstanding villa, so if you are thinking of staying in this area, look no further and make a booking.
