“Wonderful week in Tuscany”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stayed here for one week in the summer of 2013 and could not have been happier with our choice. We were travelling with our two teen daughters and used Tana de' Lepri as our home base to visit Tuscany. The apartment was awesome, large and comfortable, and cool because of the thick stone walls of its original construction. We delighted in our relaxation at the beautiful and clean pool every afternoon. The place is a 5 minute walk from the old town of Colle which was an unexpectedly lovely and non-touristy place. And from here we were able to easily make day trips to Volterra, Florence, Siena, and San Gimignano. It is so conveniently located and yet you feel that you are really away from the hustle and bustle of it all.The place worked great for our family but also would serve as a great retreat for someone travelling alone and lends itself to romantic get aways for couples. Enrica and Claudia were the kindest of hosts. We highly recommend this place!

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor are probably coolest though the upstairs may have a bit more privacy. I su...

Wonderful location just a short stroll to the main centre. Picturesque rural setting with spacious grounds and very peaceful after a hectic travel schedule. Accommodation very comfortable, well appointed and spacious. Enrica and her team were a joy. Very helpful and obliging-good local knowledge on sights, local transport etc. A great base for visiting other main Tuscan sights. We (2 couples) stayed a week and were sad to move on. Highly recommended by all our friends in Australia.

Room Tip: Rooms on the pool side are very good.

This is the most amassing place. The accommodation is excellent, spacious and well appointed. We were welcomed with open arms on our arrival and treated like family whilst we were there. The grounds were beautiful, well maintained and spacious. Far enough from the road to be completely safe for children. The pool looked fantastic. a nice space. I will go again with the family this time.

Initially, booked in for 3 nights, extended it to 4. A great base for visiting the Tuscan area. Close enough to the walk to the village. Very clean and well equipped apartment. Beautiful grounds and pool. Helpful hosts. Suggest you take insect repellant if mosquitos like you and would have liked to have a screen door. Booked in here on the advice from a fellow traveller and would recommend Residence Tana de Lepri to anyone visiting this area.

We spent 3 nights at Tana de Lepri in mid-September. We were traveling with another couple and we were totally pleased with both of our lovely apartments and the beautiful and carefully tended grounds. The apartments were comfortable and nicely decorated, and the bathrooms were modern and spotlessly clean, as were the kitchen areas. Though the residence is an easy walk into town, the sights and the sounds suggest that you are far out in the countryside. Lovely places to sit, relax, eat and even barbeque are scattered throughout the grounds. The landladies gave us helpful information about the location of good restaurants and a large grocery store and tried to help us find a vineyard to tour, though we learned that on Sunday, most of them are closed. The location was excellent for day trips to chianti wine country, Siena, Volterra, and other hill towns. The pictures and description of Tana de Lepri are completely accurate, and our experience was better than we ever dreamed. We would love to have stayed at least a week, and will surely return if we visit Tuscany again.

Tana de' Lepri is only a 5 minute walk from the "centro storico" of Colle Val d' Elsa.
But it feels like staying in a green agriturismo: peacefull, quite, wonderfull views.
And every single thing in our clean apparment was in perfect working order!

Room Tip: We arrived early, and the ever friendly owners showed us 5 rooms from which we could choose!

We just came back from Tana de Lepri and have stayed there 9 times as always Enrica & Ilaria
were fantastic hosts and as ever very helpful. The village of Colle is as original as you can get with many wonderful eating and coffee places and not too many tourists. The village is very central to Senna - Florence and many other Tuscan attractions We have recommended it to many of our friends--- they always thank us and enjoy there stay there.
