La Colombaia is a rustic, shabby chic farmhouse in a remote, tiny mountain hamlet high in the beautiful Tuscan/Le Marche Apennines, a perfect spot for walking, exploring & enjoying the countryside. There are no shops or cafes in the hamlet & it's a 20 min drive down the mountain to the nearest shops. We're close to a working farm that raises the local Chianina cattle & a house next door. Come for peace, quiet and tranquility, there are lovely towns and places to visit but no malls & nightlife!
Tuscan stone built farmhouse in the Appenine mountains, 2 hours from either Ancona, Bologna or Rimini airports. Swimming pool and terrace and beautiful views. Situated in the deep countryside in the Sasso Simone nature reserve, home to many different species of wild flowers, birds and other wildlife, including deer, wild boar and porcupine. The working farm nearby is also home to the unusual local Chianina cattle. The beautiful medieval town of Urbino is 45 minutes away. Wonderful restaurants in the nearby town of Urbania. The house, which is built in the local stone, has origins stretching back several hundred years. It has been, at various times, a farmhouse, a convent school and latterly, the village priest's house. This part of the Apennine mountains, on the border between the regions of Tuscany and Le Marche, provides miles of unspoilt countryside for walking and cycling. Sit out on the terrace by day and watch the ever changing spectacular view of the wonderful Appenine mountains and at night relax in the hot tub watch fireflies and the stars as you sip a glass of prosecco.
The house has 5/6 bedrooms one of which has a mezzanine bedroom with 2 twin beds, 3 of the bedrooms have double beds and 2 bedrooms have twin beds. The house sleeps up to 12 people. There are 2 bathrooms, one en suite and a shower room. The dining room has an antique wood burning stove and the sitting room has an open fireplace. The house is furnished tastefully with many antiques. There is a dishwasher and washing machine.
Guests have access to a 4m x 10m private swimming pool and a wooden, larch hot tub as well as miles and miles of beautiful unspoilt meadows and forests on your doorstep. There is Internet access, the networks are Rete Appio 1 (which works outside in the garden) & Rete Appio 2 (which works in the house). The password for both networks is password.

The house is entirely yours, I do not live on site, however we have a lovely English couple who live nearby who also speak good Italian. They are on hand to help out at any time and will meet and if arranged in advance can meet & greet you when you arrive. Otherwise either they or I will arrange to let you know where to pick keys up for access to the house.
