Our farm lies in a peaceful and scenic country setting among sunflower
and wheat fields. Around here, it is quite common to come across
pheasants, deer, squirrels, hares and other wildlife.
In fact, the whole area boasts a unique blend of nature and rich
The old restored farmhouse has been divided into four fully independent
and tastefully furnished apartments on two levels for guest accommodation,
ranging in size from 70 to 100 sq. mt.
Three of them have two bathrooms, and they are suitable for wheelchair
access. The surrounding fields and meadows are perfect for a relaxing
stroll or a picnic, and children love to watch and meet our animals.
The working farm
At La Colombaia, whose farm covers an area of 200 hectares, our
family grows organic crops of cereals, including spelt.
We also raise several breeds of poultry on natural feed, as well
as rearing horses, donkeys, sheep of the 'Apennine' variety, ‘cinta
senese’ pigs and ‘chianina’ cows and calves.
Our family lives at the heart of the property. We shall be delighted
to assist you with all the information you may need, and contribute
to make your holiday a pleasant experience.
We are also available to take you on guided tours of the farm, if
you like. Your pets are welcome by prior arrangement, and there
is ample private parking for visitors' cars.

Where we are
La Colombaia is just 2 km from Vicchio di Mugello, in a rural hamlet
of about ten houses called Pesciola. We are within easy reach of
Florence, Faenza and Ravenna.
The railway station and sports facilities of Vicchio (swimming pool,
tennis lawn and fishing/rowing lake) are just 3 km from the farm.
The panoramic and quiet roads that surround this spot allure anyone
to relaxing walks and to bike or horse rides. La Colombaia is located
along the road to Vespignano, where art lovers will not want to
miss Giotto's birthplace.
Nearby, the Ragnaia stream is crossed by a bridge in whose vicinity
it is said that Giotto was pasturing his flock and tracing on a
stone the rustic portrait of one of his sheep when he was spotted
by Cimabue who immediately wanted him as his apprentice in Florence.
