What makes this villa unique
Villa la Dogana is for me unique because so much tied to nice old memories and so meny more to have.
It is an isolated Villa, although close to the town of Barberino. It is in a large garden, located in the middle of a 1000 ha family property of woods and fields, with wild animals such as deers, fairs, pheasants and wild pigs.
The swimming pool is in a protected position in order to allow long season bathes.
A large outdoor table under a gazebo has a useful BBQ.
The pleasant farm restaurant at 500 meters has very good tuscan food.
It takes about 35 minutes to reach Florence by highway, and around 1h to Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Bologna and 100 of sights.
Barberino Design Outlet at 15 minutes drive.
