HINTS OF HISTORY
On the ancient road that connected Lucca to Pisa, stands Villa La Dogana.
Typical residence of the Tuscan countryside, the villa was born as a summer residence of the Orsini princes of Rome.
History has it that, to reach it, the noble family even had a small station built right in front of the house.
Today the station is a little further away, but still easily reachable, even on foot, and it is very pleasant to reach, with the picturesque trains that travel along this route, the art cities of Pisa, Lucca and Florence or Versilia or even the thermal baths of Montecatini and San Giuliano.
The scents of a culture of living now lost, the breath of serene and reassuring volumes, wide open to capture the rhythm of the landscape and the richness of a park hidden from view by most make Villa La Dogana the ideal place to savor the spirit of the most ancient holidays in Tuscany.
A theory of peaceful and peaceful environments, marked by the Tuscan tradition, in a composition of elegance and calm colors characterize the interiors of the villa.
The ancient terracotta floors, the wooden beamed ceilings and all the family furniture have been recovered and restored. The rooms are all equipped with independent heating, a double bed for the double rooms or two French beds for the suites
With magnolias and centuries-old holm oaks over 300 years old, yews, holly, willows, judas trees and a wonderful bamboo forest with a green room in the middle, where you can isolate yourself from the world.
