The apartment belongs to Tenuta Larnianone, a family run wine estate of about 340 acres, that counts 8 different Villas and Apartments surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, at 5km from Siena. The Estate is completely immersed in the countryside (you need a car to get to the grocery!) but is only 13 minutes to the closest supermarket and about 20 to Siena's city center.
What to expect:
The apartment is located under the office of the Estate, where our member of staff Barbara works from Monday to Friday, from 8.30 am to 1pm. Colombina is very cozy and functional and it's developed entirely on the ground floor (80 sqm). It is ideal for 3 people but it’s possible to accommodate one more bed for a child under the age of 12. The house consist of a living room/dining room, a kitchen, and two bedrooms with two bathrooms. The little garden in front of the house has got a BBQ and a little table, and it is surrounded by the olive trees of the Estate. The swimming pool is about 100 meters away and it's shared only with some of the guests of the other Villas.
There is no air conditioning but fans in all the rooms.
Heating cost is included.
Renting a car is highly recommended (you can't go shopping on foot from the estate!)
In Siena there is no Uber service and taxis are not always available (better to book them in advance).
The swimming pool is guaranteed from 1st of May to 30th September; it's open from 8AM to 8PM
Only the guests of the Estate are allowed to enjoy the shared swimming pool spaces. Each unit has got its area, with sunbeds and sun umbrella. The pool IS NOT HEATED.
The organization of any event involves extra costs to be defined when booking with the property.
The kitchen is equipped with stove, oven, dishwasher, coffee machine (NESPRESSO), pots, salt / pepper and our extra virgin olive oil. We provide plastic bags, dishwasher tablets, laundry soaps and fabric softener to our guests, as well as some courtesy coffee pods.
The bathrooms have hairdryers and at the entrance we provide a small welcome kit with shower shampoo in paper sachets.
It is possible to request a basic shopping to be found on the arrival, at an extra cost of 50 euros.
