“Spectacular setting for many adventures”
What a glorious week it has been! The glorious grounds of the villa have provided a spectacular setting for many adventures for both adults and children alike. The memory of walks in the olive groves, finding tadpoles in the pond and admiring fireflies by night will live with us for years to come. Lazy days spent by the pool was balanced by fascinating days spent in Firenze, Lucca and Pisa. And every evening we were happy to reurn to the comfort of Villa Colombo, hour home away from home. The highlight of the week was the evening we spent by the pizza owen. Yummy homemade pizza dressed by the children – could anything be more fun?!? Just make sure you light the fire early enough to allow for the oven to heat. Delicious pizza and fun guaranteed!. We also highly recommend the Taverna at Villa Caruso. Delicious food in a magnificent setting only a brisk stroll away. A warm thank you for sharing this beautiful villa with us The extended Family Nordberg
LEONTINE VEERMAN AND YOSEF KAPLAN “This is the house you dream to have in Italy”
We spent just a couple of days in Patricia and Paul's beautiful house in Lastra a Signa but from the very first moment we felt completely at home. This is the house you dream to have in Italy, grand and impressive, yet very personal and intimate, beautifully furnished, but sturdy and welcoming. You are always aware of the nearness of Firenze, confirmed by the magnificent view from the terrace and gardens, and at the same time you find yourself in a beautiful rural environment, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards, and watched over by extremely friendly couple of housekeepers.
HELEN HANGLIM “I cannot wait to return”
We had a great holiday at Villa Montebello Colombo. It's a seriously beautiful Villa and has so much history. The gardens, the views, the olive oil! It's so easy to get to all the amazing towns and villages and other places of interest. Nothing is more than and hour away and Florence is spread out before you - but its so quiet and peaceful. The Villa itself is beautiful, with great decor throughout. This is the perfect place for a family reunion or for a group of friends. I cannot wait to return.
“I loved the 7 days we stayed in the house”
I loved the 7 days we stayed in the house. We swam in the pool and played with Ugo Thank you so much!
FONSECA – MILANEZ – MONTEIRO “Our family called this welcoming house our home”
For seven wonderful days, our family called this welcoming house our home. This was not because our roots trace back to Tuscany. In fact our diverse roots trace back to many other places but this one Neither was it because we live nearby. On the contrary, we are spread over continents away from here. What brought us here in this hot summer was the love that makes us a Family to begin with, a love that relies on our memories more than on blood or land of origin. In this house we shared our stories of the past, our worries and hopes, our plans. We are thankful that this root gave us shelter and that these walls made us feel united, but still free to roam. GRAZIE!

FERNANDO CHEHTMAN “It truely is a special place”
I had the chance to celebrate here my 40th birthday with a group of friends last year, and I couldn't have asked for a better place to do it! The Villa Montebello Colombo is Tuscany at its best, sitting on top of a hill, overlooking Florence from the distance, and quietly surrounded by olive trees and vines. The interior breathes a timeless and authentic grandeur, and the views from the terrace and almost- every window are superb. It truely is a special place, that I can't recommend highly enough.
