Docciolina, La Panca - Greve in Chianti - Florence

4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 8 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

This villa, high up in central Chianti, feels like a much-loved home – and, no wonder, with extensive views across the fields and woodlands of a wide hilltop valley. The renovated traditional house has a charming mixture of decorative early-20th-century furnishings with chic contemporary touches. Paintings, prints, tiles and mirrors will all catch your eye here. Outside, a beautifully tended garden, full of colour, steps down to a private pool with a shallow section that is ideal for children.

Docciolina is well placed for visits to Florence, Siena and San Gimignano, but you may prefer to potter about in Chianti’s heartland, enjoying its vibrant small towns, such as Greve – a picturesque 20-minute drive away. The villa’s four outside tables and chairs, split between two delightful terraces surrounding the house and the lawned lower level, make al-fresco meals at home a must … but so is eating out at the highly praised restaurant in your hamlet, La Panca. With four bedrooms and the same number of bathrooms, Docciolina has become a favourite with groups of both family and friends.

Our Thoughts
The owners’ pride in Docciolina is evident inside and out through many decorative and practical touches. It makes for a villa that has a lot to offer in low as well as high season. In warm weather, we predict you’ll spend hours pootling between the terraces surrounding the house, with their great views and shady tables, and the lower garden. There, the pool’s setting, internal steps and clever shallow section are real bonuses.

Notes
Four bedrooms. Four bathrooms – one en-suite. One of the double bedrooms is on a mezzanine above the lounge. It has an open connection with the ground floor.If you want the twin to be made up as a double, please request when booking. Pets are not allowed.

Pool
The chlorine-free pool is divided internally by a low wall over which the water flows, creating a narrow shallow strip the length of one side which is ideal for children to play in. The water is accessed by internal steps. A terracotta-tiled terrace on two sides has sunloungers and chairs. Nearby, a pergola gives shade to a table and chairs on the lawn.
Pool size: 10.5m x 5m, 1.2m-1.6m deep, open from April to September, weather permitting.

Ondanks een late aankomst werden wij allerhartelijkst ontvangen door Carlo en Roberta met sinaasappelbubbels. Ze spreken alleen Italiaans, Het zwembad is het beste dat wij ooit hebben gehad. Zalig zacht, zout water, superschoon door de infinityrand. Niet ijskoud, maar aangenaam verfrissend door recirculatie van het water.
Tuin met bloemenpracht is geweldig mooi. Nauwelijks last van insecten. Maar....
Het huis is niet erg uitgebreid geoutilleerd. Servies is een allegaartje. Met het vliegtuig konden we weinig bagage meenemen. We misten daarom een basisvoorraad, zoals kruiden, vuilniszakken, toiletpapier. Voor een huis met een dergelijke huurprijs, mag je dit wel verwachten.
We misten ook een huisboek (met actuele gegevens over huisarts, apotheek, huisvuilinstructies, dichtstbijzijnde supermarkt en openingstijden), keukenlinnen (geen hand- en theedoek, vaatdoekje was nb van de vorige huurders!). Huidige huisboek is een verzameling printjes van de website (2014).
Het huis, zwembad en tuin liggen na 18.00 u in augustus volledig in de schaduw. Er is geen buitenspeelgoed. Dat verwacht je wel met zo'n groot zwembad (wij hebben drie tieners). Badlakens hangen in het schuurtje bij het zwembad. Vraag goed hoe het fornuis werkt. Je moet het handigheidje even doorhebben, anders werkt het niet. Het interieur is overgedecoreerd. Behalve de benedenhuiskamer vonden wij het een rommeltje en niet zo stijlvol. De pooltafel staat in een hele krappe kamer. Je kunt je keu bijna niet keren; muren zitten vol butsen. Is hilarisch. Het sanitair is gedateerd. Douches geven een piepstraaltje en temperatuur is lastig stabiel te krijgen (mengkranen).
Neem altijd de sleutel naar buiten. Als de deur dicht valt, sluit je jezelf buiten. Als de poort ook op slot zit, kun je geen kant meer op.
Kortom, het huis ( niveau van afwerking, luxe en comfort binnenshuis) rechtvaardigen volgens ons de hoge prijs niet. Maar het zwembad en het uitzicht over het dal maken een hoop goed.
Local attractions Il Cielo in La Panca, goedkoop, authentiek en eco/fair trade.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:19.08.2019
Thank you for your review. We do apologise that you did not find the house well equipped. The owner explains that the crockery is a rustic mix of different handmade pieces so do not match. They apologise there were no garbage bags and will supply in future. A basic supply of toilet paper is always provided until guests are able to stock up for their needs. We will ask the owner to update the information book and to check the plumbing. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the swimming pool and outside area with the amazing views and hope you will return to Tuscany very soon.
