Wonderful property ideally located for the town at night and the beach during the day, we rent bikes and cycle 15/20 min to the beach every day its fantastic , The Villa is spacious with more than ample room for a party of 8. It has quality finishes throughout, lovely well maintained garden and a lovely outside eating table and BBQ. We have been twice and would highly recommend for friends and family. Hosts are exceptionally friendly and on hand should you have a problem.
I have just returned from a 10 day stay at Villa Dodi with a few friends. The villa is ideally placed for a short and flat cycle to the beach during the day, and in the evening you have the truly wonderful medieval town of Pietrasanta, which is a quintessential Tuscan town with excellent restaurants and bars. An evening spent here is not to be missed.
Within an hour and a half of the villa we visited Portofino, Florence, Pisa (30 mins) and Lucca (30 mins), all of which are well worth a visit. I will most defiantly be back, as the villa is of the highest standard inside and out, and Tuscany is simply beautiful.
It’s a real highlight to fly from the UK and arrive in the fabulous Tuscan climate and the icing on the cake is to be based in one of the best villas I’ve every stayed in. Days can be spent lazing at the beach club to soak up the sun or visiting one of the many local attractions, this year we visited Lucca for a bit of culture and Portofino which I’d thoroughly recommend as it’s one of the most picturesque harbors in Tuscany. My favorite way to spend the early evening is sitting outside at one of the many cafe bars in the old town of Pietrasanta watching the world go by before heading to one of the many restaurants for a healthy caprese salad followed by a not so healthy pizza. All in all I’d thoroughly recommend Villa Dodi for a truly wonderful holiday.
I stayed at this truly magnificent villa for a week and could have easily stayed longer. Electric gates welcomed me into the villa's complex which boasted manicured gardens and the outside entertainment seating and BBQ area. When I entered the front door, I was impressed by the two large marble pillars and the marble interior which had a pleasant cooling effect.
The whole house had a relaxing ambience about it and was comfortable throughout.
I met the landlord Franco - who was very friendly and funny, and owner Oriana who was delightful and had a comprehensive knowledge of the area.
The Pietrasanta town is wonderful with a beautiful town square and lovely bars, restaurants, shops and church. The villa is a perfect base for exploring the town
and the other nearby areas of Forte dei Marmi and Lido di Camaiore which had great restaurants.
I recommend this villa and would book again!
Villa Dodi can't be faulted for its high spec bathrooms, kitchens and overall sense of spaciousness and grandeur. There's everything you should need and if you have any questions, the wonderful proprietor is on hand to help maximise the enjoyment of your stay. The beautiful clean beach is just two miles from the villas and there are lots of other nearby attractions, Pisa is just 30 mins by car and the beautiful ancient city of Lucca is a similar distance. Of course there are also the breathtaking mountains that are worth venturing into! Pietrasanta, the town itself is delightful and has a cultural centre and plenty of coffee houses! You won't be disappointed.
We just returned home after spending a fabulous week touring Italy, and staying at lovely "Villa Lana" was what made our experience so enjoyable. Our party of six consisted of two couples and two singles, so we required 4 bedrooms & baths. Incredibly, our villa had an entire floor that went unused, including an extra 2 full baths. This property could easily accomodate 8 people in supreme comfort. We had room to spare and felt like we were staying in a top tier hotel.
The landlord Franco, who also conveniently lives next door, is one of the most charming and accomodating people any of us has ever known. From the moment he greeted us until our farewell on the final evening, he made us feel as if we owned the villa, and he was just there to see to our every need. He's charming beyond belief, and a great help when it comes to providing dining and touring suggestions. If you're like us, you'll consider him part of your family in short order.
Villa Lana is modern with an Italian flair. It has spectacular views, and is conveniently located to the train station and downtown Pietrasanta, which proved to be an unexpected gem of a town. Great dining & shopping, without crowds of tourists clogging the streets. If you're looking for the authentic Italy, Pietrasanta is it!
If the rating system allowed it, we would rate our experience at Villa Lana 6 stars. If you're planning on visiting this part of Italy, you owe it to yourself to stay here, and enjoy the charm of both this wonderful villa and it's charming host, Franco. Very highly recommended.
