My husband and I returned to Colle this year after having our wedding reception on the vineyard last year. We absolutely love this place and have been coming here for family holidays for around fifteen years and it is our favorite holiday destination because it offers the chance to relax in an unspoilt and romantic part of Tuscany. The setting is stunning - with panoramic views from the pools and apartments of the typical Tuscan landscape. It is the perfect place to relax but also to explore the charming Val D'Orcia area. Siena is only 35 minutes away across the dramatic Crete Senesi and the towns of Montalcino, Pienza, San Quirico d'Orcia and Montepulciano are all under 30 minutes away and Florence about an hour.
Colle is surrounded by informal gardens and trees that also offer some shade if you're visiting in the hot months of July and August. We've also enjoyed trips here in October when the weather is cooler - it is great to see a working vineyard at different times of the year and experience the seasons.
We've stayed in a range of apartments as a couple and with groups of 14 in one of the two larger villas. The great thing is that even though there are a range of villas and apartments in the main house and outbuildings they are still very private - there are plenty of places to find a quiet spot to read a book or have a glass of wine in peace whilst admiring the views. There are three pools all with amazing views and never crowded and also a jacuzzi up at the Villa Cenerentola with possibly the best view in the world...Accommodation and linen is spotlessly clean and the apartments have kitchens and necessary equipment so that you can eat in when you feel like it. We recommend the Macelleria in Trequanda that sells produce from the local farms - honey, cheeses, salamis, wild board sausage, Chianina beef, fresh pasta, olive oil, just to name a few things!
The staff here are great - really welcoming and warm and during your stay they offer wine tastings, tours of the vineyard and cookery classes. Having got married here we were so happy with how helpful everyone was and they made everything so easy for us. There's also a great restaurant at the vineyard and so you don't need a designated driver because of course you can't come here and not sample the amazing wines. Trequanda is also a great village with a pizzeria and Conte Matto restaurant and feels very unspoilt. This is a food lovers paradise! There's a big slow food movement in the area also.
I think this is a great area to go to if you want to avoid the tourist crowds and is by far the nicest part of Tuscany to visit. I'd be happy to offer any advice to anyone staying at Colle or this area.
