We were very enthusiastic to arrive to this truly Tuscan place. The house had a couple of bedrooms, all decorated in the same country style; unfortunately not all of them had a bathroom in the bedroom, which was also our case, because we had a dog. The host told us in her emails that we would have a "PRIVATE BATHROOM",... More

Barbara V, Proprietario at Agriturismo Il Colombaio di Barbara, responded to this review

I am really sorry for the missunderstanding. I thought you had read the website in wich there is wrote that the bathroom it's outside the room. Clearly it is private. The fireplace room it's the only room I keep for people who takes dogs or cats with them, because some guests may have an allergy to dogs or cats hairs.... More

My wife and I, plus our son and 2 grandchildren (ages 13 & 12), had a unique and wonderful stay here. A quiet and relaxing contrast to the crowds and noise of the big cities. The farmhouse is spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated with host Barbara's eclectic art. Our rooms were roomy and airy & the bathrooms were nice. There... More

Spent two days here for my Sisters 30th birthday. The agriturismo is gorgeous and filled with Tuscan art from the owner Barbara. Barbara was accommodating for everything and truly lovely host, I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Siena and surrounding villages, the views are incredible, bedrooms are vintage and breakfast was lovely. Horse riding nearby was marvellous and... More

Recommended by a close friend, my partner and I just had a glorious 3 days at this very special enclave away from the crowds. The setting is gorgeous, in its secluded but beautifully laid out B and B. The rooms are all distinct and face out on beautiful views; the breakfast room is fabulous and always with the option of...

We booked this location in July, 2013, for our first stay in Italy on our 10th anniversary vacation, based on a recommendation by friends who stayed there 10 years ago. It was wonderful. We stayed for 5 nights, using this as a base to explore Siena, Florence, and Chianti. Barbara, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. She helped us... More

What a peaceful, beautiful and idyllic place! If you're looking to relax and unwind there is no place better! It's so rustic and yet you feel as if you're right at home. We expected it to be closer to Siena but the 15-20 min drive wasn't too bad. I would have no hesitation to book here again! The owner is... More

We spent 6 nights here and loved the place very much. It is handily situated less than half an hour from wonderful Siena. Though we are around 70 owner Barbara put us humorously in the "Lovers Room" with a large four poster bed. The farmhouse is full of interesting furniture and old agricultural implements + her own pictures and ceramics.... More
