"Friendly hosts, beautiful scenery, comfortable, clean accommodation. Delicious breakfast! Will definitely return!!"
We had wonderful days at this beautiful B&B. Everything emits tranquility and the location in nature is fantastic! The rooms are attractively decorated, very clean and the beds are good. Breakfast is also a moment of enjoyment, a view of the mountain and Monique's homemade products are delicious! Monique and Hans are very hospitable and helpful with all our questions. And in the beautiful garden there are many places to read a book or just relax. We will definitely come back here!

We stayed in La Colombaia Amiata for a long weekend and it was wonderful, beautiful nature / view, nice rooms, nice breakfast. And received very hospitably!


Anna e Raffaele
In questo B&B nato da poco e immerso nella natura, si percepisce subito l'intraprendenza e voglia di fare dei due gestori (marito e moglie) gentili, attenti e disponibili. Le camere accoglienti sono pulite e ben curate nei dettagli. Ci ha colpito anche la colazione (con prodotti di produzione propria come marmellate, pane e dolci) gestita in modo da evitare sprechi inutili di cibo e servita al di sotto di un delizioso porticato con vista splendida sulle colline. Nel giardino è anche presente uno spazio relax con lettini e vasca di acqua, e la sera grazie alla mancanza di inquinamento luminoso si può apprezzare il ciclo stellato.
Ci siamo trovati molto bene e siamo curiosi di vedere le evoluzioni dei progetti futuri.
