The Villa has hosted many illustrious guests such as Gustavus III of Sweden, Federico IV of Norway, Christian II of Denmark, the Royal Family of Great Britain, Benedict Stuart Cardinal of York, General Murat, Luigi Buonaparte, Paolina Borghese, Carlo Alberto of Savoy, the poets Byron and Shelley, and various other personages from the history books. The area of the Pisa hills was already an attraction for enlightened travellers in the first half of the 1700s with the growth of the thermal spa of San Giuliano (Bagni di Pisa), which became a fashionable spot for the well-off classes. The mansions on the road along the hills, already renowned as places of gentle idleness and relaxation in the heart of the countryside and also for their small industrial facilities for the transformation of agricultural products, soon assumed the characteristics of true leisure resorts, just like those narrated by Carlo Goldoni and which we can continue to enjoy today http://www.bagnidipisa.com/ .
The Villa Agostini della Seta di Corliano http://www.villacorliano.it/ is on the road which runs along the foot of the hills from Pisa to Lucca, passing through the small town of San Giuliano Terme. The Villa is a historical fifteenth century mansion surrounded by a centuries old park. It is a property of great charm in which the owners offer, in 12 rooms and 2 suites, a relaxing stay immersed in the beauties of the local countryside. Guests, if they like, can join in the day to day activities of the villa. They can have relaxing strolls in the park, potter around in the gardens, chat or have dinner with the owners in the farmhouse of the villa - today a high class restaurant http://www.ladycarlotta.it/ They can also organize all the necessary details for your meetings, events, weddings in the 1700's small pivate church or in the small Pisa Palace 1400's sky garden or in the 35.000 smt park of Villa della Seta di Corliano.
Conventions can be hosted in a historic Italian cinema http://www.lumierecinema.it/ (founded on 1905) and restructured with modern audio visual technologies on 2004 near the Vecchio Dado Resturant http://www.vecchiodado.com/ (founded on 1746) and the Royal Victoria Hotel http://www.royalvictoria.it/default-it.htm (founded on 1839).
We also suggest a very good italian ice cream in the old "diacciaia" of the Caffè dell'Ussero, (founded on 1775) now located to De Coltelli gelateria http://www.decoltelli.it/
