We review each country house on a scale of 3 to 5, with 5 being the best category. We have looked at price, quality and x-factor and come up with a comprehensive review, which is largely made with the heart, and therefore is very personal.

    Why not combine you summer holidays with cooking school, wine tasting and spa? This is possible at Fattoria del Colle!

    In 1592, Donatella Cinelli Colombini's ancestors began building the Fattoria del Colle farm and started cultivating the land in Montalcino and growing wine. In the last three generations, the property has been passed down from mother to daughter and the next generation is already ready.

    Donatella Cinelli Colombini has operated two vineyards since 1998 - Casato Prime Donne and Fattoria del Colle - and has radically changed them by combining new technology with traditions. She has produced a new form of very high quality wines that carry her name. The main project is the "Prime Donne Project", which is the first Brunello wine produced exclusively by women. Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino has 16 ha. with vines and the main production here, where Orcia DOC and Chianti DOCG are produced. The wines are a super high quality and of course 100% handmade.

    Fattoria del Colle is a traditional cozy little Italian village, built around a beautiful main villa (from 1592) and the buildings are today converted into holiday apartments, private villas, rooms, a restaurant, a gym with spa, tennis courts, a cooking school with Danish cook, lovely gardens and a beautiful park and swimming pool amidst an unspoilt landscape of vineyards, olive groves and farmed fields.

    In Italy's most beautiful landscape, where landscapes tell an ancient history, the Fattoria del Colle is still unspoilt, where guests discover the charm of ancient noble homes resembling museums where each room has a story to tell.

    We have selected three properties at Fattoria del Colle, which we think best suits our guests; two villas and one apartment; all with private terrace and reclining from walkways and common areas. Villa Archi for 14 people with private pool, Villa Cerentola for 8-10 people and the apartment Casa Donatella for 6 people.

    Every morning, in front of the entrance to the reception, the day's activities and events are announced, which one can sign up for. Some of them free, others for a fee. Two wine tours are held daily, a historic tour and a more wine-oriented tour. All our guests have a free wine tasting included in their on-site stay. On Wednesday, it is possible to drive to the second vineyard Prime Donne for a free tasting of the production.

    The newly renovated spa area has both an indoor and outdoor jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and beauty treatments and massages. It costs 25 € per person for 2 hours. All treatments are paid directly on the site.

    The Fattoria del Colles restaurant is open to all - including outside guests - and is open from spring to December. From May to August a weekly menu is offered which looks like this:

    Monday: Pici menu (traditional Tuscan homemade short pasta)

    Wednesday: 5 course menu incl. wine menu

    Thursday: Pizza menu

    Friday: Barbecue dinner

    You can sign up for the evening's menu no later than the morning of the event. The nearest smaller town is Trequanda, which is about 3 km from the Fattoria del Colle. From the vineyard there is a small marked path where you can walk directly to the city in just 20 minutes on foot. In Trequanda there are two restaurants, a pizzeria and a butcher. In Sinalunga, which is about 12 km from the site, you will find shops, restaurants, supermarkets, post office, pharmacy, bakery, bars and almost everything you need.

    Visit the Fattoria del Colle in southern Chianti, enjoy the lovely holiday apartments with historic vineyards and an experience a vineyard that goes far into the future.
