 A few words about Lucca

Lucca is a real jewel with ancient history and yet many modern activities - like the concert season in the summer featuring the most famous pop artists. In the Autumn and Winter starts a quite remarkable concert and opera season at the Teatro del Giglio.

According to Forbes, Lucca is the second-best place to live in Europe, “with the same Tuscan charm of its neighbors Pisa and Tuscany but without the crowds”.

Around Casa Dotto there are many local restaurants and wineries. Just  5 minutes’ drive from the Villa you can train your golf capabilities or take lessons with a Pro at the local Gol Club at Vicopelago; or you can play at two important golf courses in Tirrenia, just half an hour away.
