About Donata

I am an architect since 2000, graduated in Florence but I love to travel and discover the world.

Villa La Dogana is in my family for generations, and all of us have experienced some great moments and continue to love the place.

The affection and dedication to the villa and the entire property that surrounds it (1000 hectares) brings all of us to have the care and attention that La Dogana deserves, maintaining and renewing its characteristic warmth, ease and fun.

Donata purchased this villa in 1885

Why Donata chose Metropolitan City of Florence

I live in Florence but we have many guests who like to spend some time at Villa La Dogana, with or without us. Many consider this place a paradise. This is the reason why I decided to start renting the when we don't live it. Above all it gives us great pride to see customer satisfaction.

It's also a great way to meet lovely new people.

What makes this villa unique

We love to keep the villa to a high standard.

In the quiet season we work a lot around the villa, making it every year more comfortable for us and for our guests.

We pay careful attention to details, cleanliness but also efficiency of the whole house.

We believe that the holiday is rest but also fun.

The large swimming pool with elegant sun loungers, cushions on the lawn, pergolas and bersot, the 10 comfortable rooms, the suites in the tower and large beds combine to promote relax. The large and super equipped kitchen, fireplaces and barbeque for cooking enthusiasts, along with football goals, a volleyball net, walks and sightings of deer for the sport are all a good start for a great stay and fun for all ages.

Villa la Dogana is situated at a height of about 650m above sea level: this privileged altitude allows to enjoy a mild climate in the summer, very much cooler than the nearby Florence. This is the reason why we have no air conditioning: usually just need to open the windows and enjoy the cool breeze of this peaceful countryside.
