Villa Michaela is a magnificent 18th century villa whose heritage, and raw beauty in the heart of Tuscany, is only ten minutes from the unique walled city of Lucca, 25 mins Pisa airport, 1 hour from Florence, Forte dei Marmi, Cinque Terre. Rhode School of Cuisine "I'd struck gold" DAILY MAIL "Breathtaking" INDEPENDENT.

No need to take the whole villa - come and stay with us on our house party or bed and breakfast basis , join our Culinary Weeks hosted by the Rhode School of Cuisine , Puccini breaks or the Lucca Summer Festival - this summer with Jeff Beck , The Eagles and many others . Set in 50 acres of glorious pine forests and olive groves the villa has a huge pool ( 12m X 18m ) and a Greenset tennis court. The main villa sleeps 24 with Casa Una at the gate sleeping 11. Casa Una is great for young families who like to self cater although they can of course join in any lunches/ dinners prepared by our wonderful fusion chef. We are featured in Alistair Sawdays "Special Places to Stay in Italy "

Lorenzo Nottolini , celebrated court architect to the city of Lucca and responsible for the famous Lucca acqueduct ,lived at Villa Michaela and constructed our beautiful consecrated chapel seating 100 with a grand piano where we hold many weddings and music and opera recitals.

Villa Michaela is five minutes walk from the centre of the picturesque village of Vorno with the best butcher for miles around , a grocery shop and 2 family run trattorias ( Il Rio and Il Bimbotto . ) There are many other restaurants within 10 minutes drive- notably La Cecca at

Coselli ( written up by The Sunday Times as one of the best restaurants in Tuscany - pigeon risotto being a speciality) and Lo Scompiglio in Vorno which has wonderful views from it' s large terrace over vineyards towards the hills. The extensive market gardens in front of the restaurant are the source of all the delicious fresh produce served.

The villa is perfectly situated to explore the wonders of the Renaissance , the Leaning Tower and Duomo in Pisa, the wonders of Florence and Siena , wine and olive oil tasting in Chianti , boat trips around the Tuscan archipelago , Italian language and cooking lessons , hot air ballooning , golf at the fabulous Versilia course , thermal spa treatments at Montecatini Terme - children at Villa Michaela enjoy the snooker room , cinema and hikes up the hill to see our newly born goats - very efficient olive grove lawn mowers !

Lucca itself was voted by Forbes magazine as the second most attractive place in the word to live and visit and bicycling around the mediaeval walls is an experience never to be forgotten. Throughout the year there are many activities starting with the carnival in Viareggio

the March Camellia Festival in Pieve di Compito , wonderful Easter Parades , great concerts including Andrea Bocelli in July , art exhibitions , markets, fashion outlets , the Lucca half marathon and of course bicycling galore in the famous Lucchese hills.

"I thought I was dreaming!!"

From the moment I arrived in this magical place I knew my last minute weekend plans had been a success. The warm welcome I received from everyone at Villa Michaela made me feel part of the family straight away.

Delicious food (and lots of it!), decedent accommodation, fine company and gorgeous surroundings...what more could you want!? Perhaps a laid back swimming pool, tennis court above the house and freedom to roam the countryside - or indeed nearby historic walled city Lucca - if you so wish? It's all there.

I can't wait to go back, already rounding up my friends and family to join me next year! x
