Villa Michaela is a historical villa in the hills of Tuscany in Vorno, close to Lucca. Our villa is nestled in 50 acres of olive groves, pine clad hills & gardens.

We have two buildings for guests, one is the main villa filled with stunning frescoes, antiques, a communal kitchen our guests can use and our large kitchen where we serve breakfast to our guests.

The second, Casa Una, offers a communal kitchen & outdoor eating area.

The pool, BBQ, tennis court, bar & kitchen are all communal.

The space
Villa Michaela's Dante deluxe suite is a one of our guests favorites. The stunning decor, exceptional views and dreamy bathroom make it one of our most sought after rooms. The beautiful frescoed ceilings, terra-cotta floors and finely painted walls all add to the luxurious atmosphere the Dante room provides.

The Dante room offers stunning views of the gardens, the pool, and the Tuscan hills and mountains. Lounge in the large bed and gaze out the windows at the Tuscan skyline. The soft colors combined with comfortable seating and workspace make you feel at home immediately.

The massive bathroom, with stunning views of the pool and the Tuscan hills and mountains is an oasis from the rest of the world. The large double jacuzzi tub, set in the center of the room, is the perfect place for a long relaxing bubble bath.

There is ample closet space in the bathroom so you can unpack and settle in with ease and comfort.

The Dante room measures 40 square meters and the bathroom is 23 sq meters. Each meter was designed and decorated with the utmost care and consideration not only to our guests comfort but also to maintain the history of the villa.

The Dante room is located on our first floor so the ability to climb stairs is required.

Where you’ll be

Vorno, Toscana, Italy

Vorno is a celebrated Village in the Lucchesia area well known for its exquisite water and its welcome cooling breezes off the hills in the hot summer months. Villa Michaela is surrounded by Tuscan hills, covered in olive groves and fruit trees. The drive to the villa is lined with ancient stone walls, grape vines, Italian Cyprus trees and stunning views of the surrounding mountains.There are many well-known Villas built centuries ago by Lucchese aristocrats wishing to escape the intense heat of summer with no through traffic. The Villa Michaela estate is situated directly on the Via Francigena, the centuries old pilgrims route running from Canterbury to Rome. As a result, there is amazing hiking from the house. The other great claim to fame of our Village is its strong affiliation to the invention of the internal combustion engine (motore a scoppio) by two Vorno residents Barsanti and Matteucci. We are also very fortunate to have a wonderful family-owned trattoria-A Bimbotto- within a five-minute walk from the villa. The restaurant offers a huge garden, traditional Tuscan fare prepared under the guidance of Nicola, the owner, using his grandmother's recipes. They are popular for making the best pizza ever known.

Hello. I am Vanessa, the owner of Villa Michaela in Vorno, Tuscany, Italy.

My family has proudly owned and restored Villa Michaela over the past 40 years. Villa Michaela dates back to the 15th century and has always been an important part of Vorno history. In the 1800's the Lucchese architect Nottolini and his family purchased the Villa. This is when the famous architect remodeled the chapel, giving it the beautiful look it has today.

The estate also includes other buildings such as the Limonaia, the building where the lemon trees were traditionally stored each winter. Now it serves as a beautifully decorated full service kitchen often utilized for cooking courses and the breakfast room for our guests.

We have a grand pool, with plenty of lounge space as well as two outdoor dining spaces, under the grapevine covered pergolas or stunning hundreds year old trees.

Outdoors we have a lemon garden where our guests can lounge, eat al fresco lunches, and listen to the subtle sounds of our fountain amongst the lemon trees.

Another vine covered dining area is just outside the pool's stone walls with amazing views of the Tuscan hills and mountains. In this area there is also a gathering space with a fire pit.

Beyond this area the villa offers a tennis court beautifully positioned next to our ancient olive trees.

We also have a shop where you can buy our wines, cookbooks, local products, or serve yourself from our honesty bar. We also offer massage, yoga, pilates, cooking classes and other special services. You can contact us to schedule these for your stay.

In my 40 years of owning Villa Michaela I have had the pleasure of welcoming guests from all over the world including ex-first ladies, famous movie stars, and world famous writers. All of our guests bring something special to the Villa whether they are famous or not, and we look forward to welcoming each one of you.
