5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We had 5 wonderful days at Casale Il Colombaio and after weeks of travelling the warm welcome from Paolo and Giuseppina and the comfort of their B&B was just what we were looking for. We arrived tired and stressed because of a minor car accident, and not wanting to go out to eat, Paolo went out and got pizzas, complete with a bottle of red wine, for us to have in our room. This is just an example of the care and attention Paolo and Giuseppina give to their guests. The room was large with a very comfortable bed, dining table, good shower and an outdoor setting where we enjoyed the morning sunshine and use of the wifi connection which was excellent, indoors as well. Paolo gave us directions to some wonderful restaurants nearby and to sights within the area. He also took the time to give us excellent directions for returning to Siena, something we could have done with before our arrival, as if you are a traveller not familiar with Tuscany explicit directions are really helpful. If you've had enough of tourist crowds a stay at Casale Il Colombaio provides a relaxed, family atmosphere where nothing is too much trouble in making you feel welcome and valued. Thank you so much Paolo and Giuseppina for making the conclusion of our visit to Italy so wonderfully memorable.

The hosts were wonderful, the building was amazing, and the surroundings were beautiful.

The perfect spot to stay, while discovering the surrounding towns or further out in Tuscany.

Would definitely recommend it!

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast, very professionally run. The room was spotless and well appointed. Modern, new fixtures in the bath did not detract from a completely authentic restoration. If it is hard to imagine how something built in 1300 can be both authentic and completely comfortable, you should make a reservation and stay here yourself to see how it's done. Breakfast was delicious and included fresh fruit and high-quality baked pastries. The hosts were very friendly and responsive. I would recommend this to any friend, and even suggest they arrange their trip to include a visit here.

Room Tip: I believe every room would be unique. I stayed in a room facing the entry gate to the property that...

This beautiful bed and breakfast combines the best of all worlds. It is located far enough off the beaten path that it would be unlikely to ever hear a car. Yet it is only 8 miles to Siena and 50 miles to Florence. There are so many fantastic places to visit within a short drive that it's hard to choose which ones to explore.

The building itself is beautifully renovated with such attention to detail. It's hard to believe the building is hundreds of years old. Our room and bathroom had all the modern conveniences and were more than comfortable. The bed was the real gem. A sturdy iron frame and great linens.

Breakfast was great. Homemade baked goods as well as cold cuts and cheese. Giuseppina and Paolo were gracious hosts and made us feel right at home.

My only word of caution to anybody interested in this lovely location is to make sure you get whatever you need on the way to the inn. There is nowhere within walking distance to grab a soda or snack. But that's a small price to pay for such a relaxing setting.

What a beautiful location, and what excellent hosts. After two weeks of Rome, Venice and Florence, our last four days here were an excellent way to slow down and relax. Both he and his wife served a delicious breakfast every morning, and Claudio gave us excellent advice on where to visit and where to eat in the surrounding countryside.
Sunflowers and firefiles(!) made the time even more enjoyable. Our heart-felt thanks to both of them for having us there.

Room Tip: In hot weather the upper rooms get a bit warm, without air conditioning a fan (provided) is needed t...
