A corner of paradise

Wine resort in the Tuscan vineyards.

Discover our home

In the heart of Chianti, Il Colombaio di Cencio offers its guests peace and quiet in a corner of paradise, the perfect base from which to explore the Chianti area or simply enjoy the tranquillity of the unspoiled nature all around.

An old, skilfully renovated farmhouse set amongst vineyards, olive groves and cypresses.

In verdant Tuscany, in the heart of Chianti, surrounded by woods and fruitful vineyards.

All the apartments are located in old but skilfully and meticulously refurbished farmhouses. Furnished in Tuscan style, with a kitchen or kitchenette and TV (and some with a fireplace), they offer a unique view of the neighbouring hills. And, of course, they are accompanied by a splendid swimming pool. You will also have access to the garden, which is fully accessorised to hold barbecues!

The apartments, all of which have been skilfully renovated.

Our historical, traditional-style farmhouse features three independent apartments.

  • Istrice (sleeping 2-4)
  • Oca (sleeping 2-4), on the ground floor
  • Lupa (sleeping 4-8), on the upper floor

The swimming pool, wood-fuelled oven built from stone and the brick barbecue are all at the disposal of our guests, making their holiday perfect.

The only neighbour beyond the grounds: our elegant, prize-winning vineyard.
