Item Description

Artist-designed luxury Italian villa in charming countryside 1.5 hours outside of Rome. Pool, garden, orchard, outdoor pizza oven, Italian groundskeeper, luxurious bedrooms. Privacy, idyllic stone main house with 3 huge bedrooms, 2.5 enormous baths, double living room with fireplace, gourmet kitchen. Additional stone guest house with light-filled studio room (with double pull-out bed), kitchen, and 2 large bathrooms and 1huge bedroom over-looking pool and back patio. Outdoor tables and sitting areas. 

La Dogana, previously the customs house for the area, is situated an easy 1.5 hours from Rome near the tiny town of Farnese where you'll find a lovely grocery store, homemade gelato, and a few restaurants. Nearby are the must-see towns of Pitigliano, known for their locally produced wines and cheese, and Orvieto with its incredible Duomo.
Surrounded by the Tuscan hills and close to Lake Balsena for boat rides, there is much to see, eat, and experience....though you'll have a hard time forcing yourself to leave the amazing grounds of this property! La Dogana is next to a conservation forest ideal for walks in the shade and an easy drive to other charming hillside villages.
