LA COLOMBINA is located in the hills of Gello and Casaglia, a territory known for its iron and copper mines and for the beauty of its scenery. It is a fascinating house for short or long summer or winter holidays in one of the most beautiful parts of the Tuscan countryside.
The house with its typical rural aspect has been recently renovated and furnished with antique furniture chosen with attention to the smallest details, in a perfect combination between tradition and comfort.

Ciao! I am Monika and I started to rent villas in Tuscany many years ago, in 1999. It all began when I fell in love with the Italian's, ( most of all my Italian husband.. :) ) and the natural beauties of this fantastic country , the history, the food and the ancient traditions of one of the most beautiful places of the world: Tuscany!
Today, my company is specialized in the rental of vacation holiday homes and villas not only in Tuscany and Umbria but also in other regions of Italy and gives direct assistance in Tuscany - Monte San Savino near Arezzo directly from the heart of Tuscany from May to September
I personally prepare tips and infos for my holiday guests regarding cultural events, shopping tips, wine tasting or info regarding typical local restaurants ...and much more!
I want you to feel " at home away from home" when living in one of my properties, to get in touch with the real Italian life meeting my Italian house owner friends and me. That is why I do my best to make your Dream Holiday in Italy come true!
I hope to welcome you soon...!
