Holiday Rental House
Two old tuscan houses isolated in the countryside between Siena, Arezzo and Florence. In July and August we rent them only together, in the other periods they are available also separately. The houses with swimming pool at La Doccia are just 5 minutes from the town of Ambra, but seem away from the world, hidden in a clearing in a wooded valley, along a stream, that runs next to the houses, and a little waterfall. Its position gives the Doccia a romantic and almost fairytale ambience, characterised by peace and intimacy. La Doccia boasts a big swimming pool and a large garden. Furthermore, guests will find an old wood burning pizza oven, which they can use to prepare delicious pizzas and roasts of all kinds. Next to the oven is a small covered terrace with a masonry barbecue and a workto...Two old tuscan houses isolated in the countryside between Siena, Arezzo and Florence.
