What a gem

Let me start by saying the pictures don’t do justice to what you actually see, the views of the Tuscan country side are absolutely breathtaking. The weather was perfect, hot outside but cool in the house and the pool was great for us and our kids. The house itself was the perfect size for us our 2 teenage kids and another couple that met us for a few days, it is fully equipped with everything you would need, really a home away from home. The near by town of Orciatico is only a 5 min walk and has a small store , bar and a great family owned restaurant we ate at twice. Our favourite was the wonderful and art filled town of Lajatico which is about 3 km away and can be seen from the house. Just an amazing little find close by with great shops and a family run restaurant called Nello’s where the food is all homemade and absolutely to die for, definitely a must try if you rent this house. It is also a wine lovers paradise, with vineyards every five minutes when you are driving . It was a great place as a home base for doing wine tastings at one of the hundreds of vineyards and to visit Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano or many of the amazing little hill top towns in the area. I would highly recommend Casa Colomba to anyone wanting to visit the Tuscan country side or if you just want to have a wonderful home to kick back and relax at. Thank you so much Janis for opening up your wonderful home for us to enjoy. Rod and Kari
