La Doccia is a lovely example of a restored Tuscan barn. It has its own swimming pool, garden terrace, and lovely views of the countryside, yet is only a short walk from the Porta San Matteo gateway into medieval San Gimignano, therefore perfectly placed to explore all this beautiful town has to offer.
This lovely detached barn has been converted with great care to offer comfortable accommodation. It is fitted and furnished to a high standard in traditional Tuscan style with terracotta tiled floors and beamed ceilings it retains many original features such as the charming slanted bricks on the bedroom windows which look out onto the lovely countryside. In the sitting room and in one of the bedrooms, large arched frosted glass windows give a light and airy feel, whilst ensuring privacy and protection against the heat of the sun. The villa has the added bonus of air conditioning throughout (payable locally).
A few steps from the house is its lovely garden terrace with pergola, table and chairs and barbecue. Secluded by a hedge to give you privacy, it is the perfect spot for dining alfresco whilst enjoying the view of the bell tower of the Church of Santâ??Agostino.
The large private swimming pool (14m x 7m), close to the house, is in a lovely position, surrounded by grass lawn and secluded by olive trees, it enjoys a fine view of the countryside. Use of the pool is reserved for guests renting La Doccia. The owner who lives in the farmhouse next door, has a vineyard and an olive grove from which he produces his own wine and olive oil and whilst being helpful and friendly will not intrude on your privacy.
The grounds of La Doccia and the ownerâ??s house are fully enclosed and there is covered parking. This much sought after property is perfectly placed for exploring San Gimignano with its historic monuments, and excellent selection of shops and restaurants on foot, yet Florence and Siena are easily accessible via the rail, road and bus links at Poggibonsi only 11kms away.
