Irene and her family were so hospitable and kind to our friends who were in Italy for our wedding. They were so accommodating, helpful and responsive and made sure that everyone was comfortable. The pool area was amazing, and we even had our brunch after the wedding there for all of our guests. Definitely a recommended place to stay.

Irene was an outstanding host. She quickly answered all our questions before our stay and provided superb service during our stay. Whenever we needed anything at all - she and her brother were there to help us - including trips to the doctor, accommodation for other friends who came just for one night etc. The place is stunning, in a fantastic setting in the middle of nature, just like on the pictures. Little towns and restaurants are not far away, so we could always buy what we needed without too much effort. The apartments are all very nice and well equipped. Despite the heat, it was nice and cool inside, and one place even had air-condition. We all had our little terraces and balconies for ourselves, and then one big terrace for eating all together (we were 4 families). One night was a cooking night provided by Irene and her family - it was simply amazing. Everyone got to cook a bit, including all the kids who just loved it. Afterwards we ate the most amazing gnocchi, tiramisu etc. and had a lovely evening. All of us will try to repeat the recipes......:-) Needless to say we can highly recommend this place. It was a fantastic week, every one of us thoroughly enjoyed it. We hope to be back !!

The host family were fantastic and made us feel at home; nothing was too difficult. The 4 separate flats were ideal for us friends, and there was a larger kitchen and dining area for us to eat together when we desired. Irene and her brother also cooked us a great meal with local produce. We will be back should we want to be in the same area again; local restaurants they recommended were impressive.

We have used Air BnB in many cities in Europe (London, Barcelona, Prague, Stockholm etc) and our experience with Irene and her family at Il Doccio was by far the best we have had. Irene was very responsive and was very helpful in organising things while we were there - she was a real asset. We were 6 adults and 4 children from 3 families and so the setup was great. The villa has 4 separate flats but are all in the same building and so it was great to have a bit of our own space but yet be together for a holiday. The villa was very nice and the photos do a good job to accurately describe the villa. The pool area is huge and has loads of sun chairs and space. It is not connected to the villa but is about 35m away. We did a cooking class with Irene and her Mum and then had a family meal afterwards, which was the highlight of our trip (definitely ask for the pork fish which was delicious). We had 4 kids (4, 2, 1.5 and 1 years old). Irene arranged for high chairs and cot beds for all the kids, which was great. There are a number of steps in each apartment, but it was very manageable. There is also an enclosed outside patio that worked great with the kids and nice for the adults. The overall location was convenient as it allowed for a number of day trips (Florence is about 50mins, Siena about 70mins etc) local sights (small winery 2 miles away, also a local cheese maker) and hanging out by the pool. You definitely need the directions to fine the place as there are a number of small country roads to take but it is only about 10mins from the Motorway. The only downside I would highlight is that the internet connection is not the greatest. The villa has thick walls and so some rooms get great internet and some get almost none, was not a problem for us, but for anyone who wanted to have lightning fast internet it may be a problem (however, not sure you will get fast internet anywhere out in the countryside). The other downside was that we were only able to spend a week there!!!

Ciao!
It's hard to put together something to say about me. Let's say that I love my job -yes, I'm a professional host - I love people and I love traveling.
When traveling myself I'm curious about local culture, food and people. I believe in a SUSTAINABLE way of doing tourism, and this is what I propose you, being my guest in my region, and what I look for in my trips.

We have 8 kind of accomodation: HOUSING, LIVING and VISITING Tuscany is our motto - ask for our services!
