Agriturismo Le Docce
About the home
Agriturismo Le Docce is situated in a wonderful part of Tuscany, called Valdelsa, right at the centre of an ideal triangle with Florence, Pisa and Siena at its vertices, all the three of them lying just a 30 minute drive away.
Valdelsa is a region particularly rich in history, art and culinary traditions, whose main towns are San Gimignano, Certaldo, Volterra and San Miniato.
During your stay, you can relax, read, listen to music and swim in the wonderful swimming pool or just forget the hectic city life in the utmost peace.
We have been a family of farmers for four generations and we are therefore proud to let you taste the wine and extra-virgin olive oil that we produce.
The beautiful 7x14 metre external swimming pool with Roman steps at the top of the hill is perfectly integrated in the spectacular natural context and gives full views of the unique surrounding landscape. The stone solarium terrace around the pool is furnished with sun loungers and sunshades.

The Tuscany / Firenze Province region
Due to its history is one of the Italian regions with the oldest and defined identity.
The Tuscan region is mostly hilly. From the climatic point of view, Tuscany has characteristics different from area to area, but generally has a fairly mild climate.
The protected areas cover nearly 10% of the region, and includes three national parks. Tuscany is known worldwide for its great wealth of monuments and works of art, famous throughout the world are the cities of Florence, Pisa, Siena and, though less known Arezzo, Lucca.
Valdelsa is a region particularly rich in history, art and culinary traditions, whose main towns are San Gimignano (15 km), Certaldo (7 km), Volterra (km 28) and San Miniato (17 km).
The Castelfiorentino area
Castelfiorentino is located in Val d'Elsa, the territory is extended mainly on the valley with hills.
Castelfiorentino is a mere 5 minute drive or bike ride away from the farm. In Castelfiorentino you will find cafés, restaurants, supermarkets, a street market, banks, chemists', a post office, a hospital, shoe and clothes shops, food shops and so on.
A very suggestive feast takes place on 1 February, the day of Saint Verdiana (the patron saint of Castelfiorentino). On the occasion of the procession, numerous market stalls are placed along the streets of Castelfiorentino.
“In/Canti & Banchi” is certainly one of the most important events in Castelfiorentino. Taking place every year in the fourth week of May, In/Canti & Banchi involves the whole town and sets off the urban scenery with original and spectacular performances. Story-tellers and musicians invite people to a trip in their magic world. In May people like making whoopee in the squares, in the streets and in the most secret corners of this town at the gates of the Chianti region, where the In/Canti & Banchi Festival brings the ancient propitiatory feasts to mind, when people sang stornelli in the courtyards.
