: A1 / E35 - Valdarno
: Castiglione della Pescaia
Until the half of the '900 il Colombaio belonged to the ancient property of Badia Coltibuono. It is located in the surroundings of Cavriglia, a small town in the heart of Tuscany, approximately 40 km from the cities of Florence, Siena and Arezzo. The nearest international airports are Florence (50 km) and Pisa (120 km); Rome is 240 km away. The easy access to the motorway A1/E35 Milan-Florence-Rome (10 km) allows you to reach many interesting spots within a short time; still using pleasant and very panoramic country roads, you can reach in less than an hour the famous areas of Chianti Classico. In Cavriglia, 1,5 km from il Colombaio, you can find food shops, restaurants, bank, chemist etc. Both the towns of Montevarchi and San Giovanni Valdarno, with commercial centre, railway station and every kind of stores and services, are only 8 km away.
We are also ideally located for l'Eroica, the famous Italy's retro cycling race that starts every fall from Gaiole in Chianti, 10 km from here, and winds on dirt roads through stunning Tuscan countryside, featuring only vintage bikes and vintage outfits.
