Description

“Il Colombaio di Barbara”is a charming and typical 17th cen. Tuscan farmhouse located in the medieval borough of Torri at 12 kms from Siena. Each bedroom has private bathroom inside or next to the room and there is a large garden with a swimming pool

Welcome to Il Colombaio di Barbara Farm Guest House in the Tuscan hilly countryside!
We are locate among the beautiful Tuscan hills at the foothills of the antique medieval borhough of Torri, at a few kilometers from the center of Siena.
At my place the guest feel embraced and welcomed by a kind of musical silence and a truely magic atmosphere in which time seems to have stopped.
The estate is a charming and typical XVIIIth farmhouse with 6 bedrooms- with private bathroom - living room, breakfast room and dining room. Each room is decorated in a very unique way: warm colours on the walls, oil paintings, Spanish tiles and mosaics on the floors. All the furniture is handmade, with Venetian stucco finishes.
The Farm House is sorrounded by an extensive garden with swimming pool, and a very beautiful ‘pergola’, entwined by wisteria, where to refresh and dine in the hot summer nights.

As soon as you arrive, please come to the reception for checking-in.
All guest have access to the breakfast room, to the dining room, at the garden and at the “Pergola” space and to the swimming pool in summer.

Let me tell you something about me.
My name is Sumito Barbara Viale, I am 54 years old and I have lived a wonderful life. I have traveled a lot, I have met amazing people and marvelous places and I have also experienced the spiritual dimension of meditation. When I had a son I decided to stay in the Tuscan countryside, and thus began the long history of the Colombaio. The first years of my life were spent in beautiful Venice, city which gave me the opportunity to fully immerse myself in the vast Italian creativity: I owe this city most of my passions as shaping ceramics, love for beautiful music, art in general and photography.
Despite the beautiful environment where I grew up, from an early age I felt the need to travel, with the aim to discover new places and new cultures. I lived in England, Germany, the United States and more than once I was in India, a place I was particularly affected from its strong energy. I can in fact define myself as a positive person, with a vital and courageous attitude towards life. I am very honest with myself, and consequently also with the others. I am extremely friendly and welcoming, I love socializing with people, share with them the beauty that this land has to offer and be able to make magic their stay here.
For more than thirty years I meditate, and I must say that this is perhaps the activity that mostly completed me, both in body and in spirit. In fact, I started very young when, twenty years old, I met what would have been my spiritual teacher for the rest of my life, Osho. It was he who directed me towards the path of inner clarity, and that helped me to get into the wonderful world of meditation.
Lately then I was able to exploit all my experiences, I dedicate myself totally in the aid relationship towards the others. I became Counsellor, and I'm starting to organize various creative workshops that merge meditation and the discovery of the wonders of Tuscany.
Having lived in Tuscany for nearly two decades I can advise you on the best places to spend your afternoons: places unknown to most people, carefully preserved by those who inhabit them, and help you bring to light the true essence of this region beyond the beautiful cities of art.
Finally, I hope that you will come to see me in this little corner of paradise, so I can share it with you!

The Farm Hose area, at some 12 kms from Siena, is surrounded by landscapes of unique beauty , by cities full of art, history and tradition. The estate is located at the foot of a centuries-old wood, immersed in the tranquility and beauty that only a place like the borough of Torri and the Merse valley are able to give and in a green lung between Chianti , Maremma, the Crete Senesi and the Orcia valley. The Merse valley includes places of interest such as Monticiano, Chiusdino and Murlo and many smaller country towns such as Stigliano , Orgia and Brenna , just a few minutes from us. The river Merse is a wonderful waterway chased by small and large pools where you can relax and swim surrounded by the fascination of the area ( the Natural Park of the Merse valley) . It flows into the river Farma near the village of Petriolo , famous for its water that flow at 43 °, known since Roman times, and laden with hydrogen sulphide with healing properties. The hot springs are freely usable 14 kilometers away from us , taking the freeway SS223 towards Grosseto.

Not far for the town of Siena, from the Farm House it is also very easy to reach other famous and charming town and villages as San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Voterra, Pisa, Lucca, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano, Cortona, Bagno Vignoni, Arezzo.
You will have also the opportunity to go trekking, horse-riding, bathing and relaxing in Petriolo and Rapolano spas.
In the vicinity of the Colombaio di Barbara are highly characteristic places , such as the beautiful Abbey of San Galgano founded in 1288 by Cistercian monks . Today the Abbey is a tourist destination thanks to concerts , plays and ballets that are often organized in the summer, and also thanks to the Arthurian myth of the "Sword in the Stone" attributed to St. Galgano. It 's only 14 km away from us going to Chiusdino and taking the SP73bis .
Not far away (about 20 minutes) another place is very impressive: Murlo , a town between the Merse and the Arbia valleys. In ancient times this area was inhabited by the Etruscans of which you can admire historical evidence in the " Antiquarium of Poggio Civitate " museum located in the center .You can reach Murlo from the SS223 in direction Grosseto, at the junction turn left towards Murlo ( Casciano di Murlo , Ville di Corsano and Buonconvento).
Known worldwide for their colourful appearance are the Crete Senesi ( Province of Siena, in the Orcia valley) , 10 minutes away from the Colombaio di Barbara. The landscape is characterized by gently rolling hills surmounted by a lonely oak, a cypress or isolated farms , stretches of forest and rainwater pools.
In the Orcia valley are also the country towns of Asciano, Buonconvento, Monteroni d'Arbia, Rapolano Terme, San Giovanni d'Asso and Trequanda . A building of particular interest in this area is the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, founded by St. Bernardo Tolomei in the thirteenth century.

This is a super place to stay. The breakfast was excellent. There was a mix up with our arrival time but only because I could not pick up an email sent to me. Although Barbara gives brilliant instructions on how to find her, airbnb do not give those instructions when you click on directions. Coming from Siena the road to turn off at is a short while after the service station at the roundabout.
