Montebenichi, Bucine, Province of Arezzo, Tuscany
Il Colombaio di Monte Benichi is a traditional Tuscan farmhouse whose origins date back to the year of 1232. Only steps away from the hilltop hamlet of Monte Benichi, Il Colombaio sits at about 500 meters above sea level, offering breathtaking views of the beautiful Ambra River Valley, a beautiful and unspoiled natural environment in the heart of Tuscany at the southeastern edge of the Chianti, the area producing one of Italy's finest red wines. The famous medieval town of Siena is only a 20-minute drive by car.

Il Colombaio and its solar-heated pool are surrounded by some 350 olive trees with their mystic silver-green leaves. Beyond the olive grove are unspoiled views that reach all the way to the mountains and the sea. The surrounding area is a peaceful and productive landscape with woods, vineyards, olive trees and active wildlif...

About the neighbourhood

The wooded areas near Il Colombaio are home to wild boar, falcons, deer, fox, beech maarten, and other animal species.

The lack of lakes and open water reservoirs as well as the continuous wind make Il Colombaio almost insect-free.

Local attractions:
