We are a family of 4 and have just returned from a wonderful holiday spent at Docciola Barn. Its location was perfect, so close to San Gimignano and yet completely secluded. The pool, which was essential given the hot weather was spotlessly clean. The barn was well kitted out and beautifully converted to a high standard. Kathy was good at communicating throughout our stay and provided essential information prior to our arrival making everything run smoothly. We would advise hiring a small car essential for nipping about and exploring the neighbourhood. The trains to Florence and Siena are nearby with free parking if you get there early! We are already hoping to visit again next year. Highly recommended.
I adored this villa and hope to go back again in the summer. The views from the terrace are just wonderful, and although a mere walk from the town the solitude a calm is heavenly. It is not, as others have said, a overly equipped , luxurious home, but for that it is authentic and utterly charming. I loved the traditional, large room with a massive open fireplace (where we burnt bay leaf braches and wood collected from the surrounding grounds) ItIt was a little to cold to swim but we ate out most days, and enjoyed splendid sunsets. We knew the road was challenging, but we managed fine with a rented manual car, and usually chose to walk to town anyway. It was a small price to pay for a very reasonably priced rental in such a perfect location, and it did nothing to tamper our enjoyment. Grazie molto Singnora Fitzgerald!
We had a large group(12 Adults & 2 infants at different times), and we found the directions we were given and indeed the information for the house/area was excellent. We kept in touch with the owner via email a few times in relation to a few bits and found her easy to deal with. Getting to the property was fine but would recommend a sat nav. Realistically anybody renting would need a car. The driveway as discussed on previous reviews was one of the main bad points of the whole trip. It's a very steep,long and uneven gravel track that makes getting in and out of the site very difficult. We had 3 cars and 2 were at times unable to get up with people in the car. I had a jeep (4wd) and I would recommend that anybody renting this property would need one. Even that struggled to get up the drive. The house is a real traditional Italian farmhouse. It has good space but lacks a bathroom downstairs. We found that like other properties the power in the house was only ok, we bought a microwave (due to the babies) and found we did not have enough power to make it work properly in the main house. The bedrooms in the main house are all fine with great room. The new kitchen is nice and well equipped but I was told the oven could do with replacing. We all found that the night's were a little cold even with the heating lit but that could be down to the time of year. The barn was lovely too, 2 good bedrooms and a great bathroom and a nice kitchen and living space. A bit more modern than the main house. The pool area was lovely but due to the time of year we stayed the water was freezing. Really freezing. It would have been nice to have it heated, but it was never mentioned if this was possible.
The location in relation to the town was (apart from the driveway) good with lots to see and do.
Overall we would find that the driveway really takes from the property and we would not return to the property due to this issue.
The property and house are amazing, beautiful views and well maintained interiors. The house is also well stocked with everything you need to cook up an Italian feast and then have a good and comfortable nights sleep afterwards.
Definitely also nice and close to San Gimignano and easy drives into Chianti area and the surrounding villages. We drove to Certaldo to catch the train into Florence and Sienna which was also very easy.
The one negative is the driveway down to the property is long (approx 400m) and in serious need of maintenance with our rental cars struggling to make it up the hill at times, and sometimes not making it hence requiring a second try. In terms of walking into town we had four young children with two in prams and as a result of the state of the driveway walking wasn't an option. If the driveway was better maintained this would be a five star property given the price charged.
I would definitely recommend this property for families if the driveway was maintained or be prepared for some tough driving each time you head out.
We had a fabulous family holiday here, eating outside at the large table with the fireflies dancing in the background was enchanting. There were 9 of us and plenty of space to accommodate everyone. The pool is a great size, the kitchen is very well equipped and the setting is divine.
The only drawback for us was the very steep walk into San Gimignano as we had a couple of persons with limited mobility, otherwise it was very well situated.
We had some wonderful meals in restaurants both in town and in the surrounding area as recommended by the owners. All in all a great place.
