My family stayed at La Doccia in the height of summer and had a wonderful time. The enormous pool was the highlight of the trip for my children, and its magnificent views across undulating Tuscan countryside just added to the fun of swimming. Our room (Milton) was large - in fact all 4 of us slept in it comfortably - and had a lovely sitting room and kitchen attached. The terrace adjoining the room was a godsend in the summer heat, and the children could play there while we appreciated the views. The remoteness of La Doccia was perhaps its principal charm - one certainly feels that one is not on the beaten tourist track, yet it is located near enough to all the main sights to make it an incredibly convenient location. Our children loved the trip to the castle at Poppi. The directions to La Doccia given by our hosts made finding it very easy.
