Other things to note

Our estate is for those who loves the country and its creatures, who like to walk 400 meters up the hill and enjoy a panoramic view while swimming in our 26 meters pool; those who appreciate we grow without using pesticides and therefore stand scorpions, ants and mosquitos as a part of nature and for those who prefer reading a book instead of watching tv.

Finally, for those who “like to ask”, because we are always here for you: for a light bulb to change, for a helping hand with your children, for a question about places to visit or interesting things to do, or just for a chat.

As a guest at La Dogana, we were treated like family. Emanuele and his daughter Lucia embraced our 2 children and would always go above and beyond to help us settle in to Italian life. The apartments have THE most incredible views of the lake. It is peaceful beyond belief and it is really well located to so many great places for day trips including the beautiful village of Cortona. It's also really close to a train station where we parked the car for free and travelled for the day to Rome and Florence. The swimming pool was clean and big, and once again, had a fabulous view. As for the Italian restaurant across the road, it was divine - fresh produce, particularly the garden truffles, in the hands of a world-experienced chef. Emanuele and Lucia were consistently on-hand to offer advice and suggestions. Lucia is incredibly hands on with the guests, taking my daughter horse-riding with an Italian horse whisperer and accompanying us to the hospital to help with translations when my kids were sick. They really care for their guests, as evidenced when we were there by the amount of return guests, even after 25 years! If you are looking to be more than just a tourist and want to really experience Italy, a stay in La Dogana with all its natural beauty is a must. We know that we will return again and again. Thank you Emanuele and Lucia for taking us all under your wings.

My daughters and I stayed at La Dogana for 9 days and we had a fantastic experience. It was even better than I would have expected in all regards. Our apartment was comfortable, beautiful and contained all that we needed. My daughters enjoyed the pool and the animals. The scenery is fantastic and there was lots of room for children to run and play. Emanuele and Lucia made us very welcome and suggested things for us to do that made our stay more memorable. We will definitely go back to stay again!

Dear Tanya, thank you very much! I am always glad when our guests enjoy not only what dogana offers but also its spirit. Have a nice year in Florence, and if you will pass through here, it will be a pleasure if you come visit us. Emanuele p.s. Lucia and Vasco send a great hug to Mary! :)

We had a wonderful week at La Dogana. The room was comfortable and Emanuele and Lucia were wonderful hosts. We were there during a wicked heat wave and the pool was a godsend. A great location to explore the region. Loved having the bread guy stop by each morning too! It's a quiet place for some wonderful rest and family time.

Lovely place, we arrive late but Emanuel patiently guide us to his place. Huge house. Toilet is new, room are spacious and comfortable. Sadly the restaurant is close when we visit but there is a restaurant 2km down the road which is fantastic! Very quiet and amazing view!
