Ancient Leopoldine villa with private pool, set in the rolling hills of southern Tuscany a few kilometres from Cortona. Ideal for families with children and groups of friends who want to spend their holidays among comfort, sport, nature and fun.
Villa La Colombaia is an old Leopoldine house typical of the Valdichiana, carefully restored in the Tuscan tradition, and located a few kilometres from the Etruscan town of Cortona. The villa is set amidst rolling hills, where the rich and fertile Valdichiana offers splendid views among rows of cypress trees, vineyards and olive groves.
Cortona, beautiful to visit from an architectural point of view with its narrow alleys and noble palaces, has also every kind of service. The small hamlet of Fratta S. Caterina is also just 1.5 km from the villa, where a restaurant and some basic shops are within walking distance.
In the large green park surrounding the villa there is a large fenced swimming pool (size m. 7x16, depth m. 1,20-2,20), surrounded by cypress and olive trees, a gazebo with a small sitting room for aperitifs in the open air and various equipped areas where you can relax reading a good book in the hammock, and have fun with exciting challenges at table tennis and volleyball, while for children the swing will certainly be a point of reference.
Next to the villa, as you leave the lounge, there is a large wooden gazebo equipped with a table, chairs, barbecue, wood-burning oven and sink where you can spend fun evenings in the company of family and friends, eating grills and pizzas with a good glass of local wine.
Villa La Colombaia is tastefully furnished and well equipped, and a skilful use of original colours and fine materials has made it a structure that combines the charm of ancient tradition with the most modern standards of everyday life. On hot summer days the shady car park and air conditioning will guarantee a cool and comfortable holiday.
For those who love walking or cycling, the Sentiero della Bonifica (Land Reclamation Path) passes right next to the villa, winding along the ancient main channel of the Chiana, connecting Arezzo and Chiusi.
