OurThis tuscan retreat owes its charming name to the place where it is set and called by the locals Al Principe.
The greeny valley that surrounds the property has a fanciful misterious name as well: "La valle del Canto" (the valley of the sweet song).
It's hard actually to trace back the origin of such important epithets. The history of Lucca is a shrine of culture and traditions but it's also peppered with legends and old stories. The area nearby the Villa between the River Serchio and the Castle of Nozzano was already famous some centuries B.C. when the Romans arrived and built their fabulous private Villas (Domus) and their military settlementes. The fertile valley, the navigable river, and the lavish wooded hills made certainly all that possible!!
So, the "Valle del Canto" was dotted with luxury homes, thermal baths, vast agriculture fields and streams and small rivers that romantically bathed this land. On the other hand the "Residenza al Principe" may refer also to an important Major General of the Italian Army that in more recent times mad this Villa it's private exclusive summer residence! Anyway whatever the truth is, the place "Al Principe" is certainly one of the most fanciful fascinating one.
