The Experience

A lifetime’s treat. Writers, celebrities and a First Lady have all stayed here, in the opulent Tuscan villa with its House & Garden interiors. You can even make it your own: indulge family and friends and get married in its chapel. It’s beautiful throughout the seasons here. Come for a few days, join a Slow Food house party, sample local wines, listen to opera. An interior designer has worked his magic on every room, mingling fine English furniture with classic Italian style, while Puccini, Verdi and Dante lend their names to the grander bedrooms, awash with frescoed ceilings, lavish fabrics, king-size beds and double sinks. Also: a family kitchen, a formal dining room, a library and a multimedia room, tennis and an outdoor pool. Dine al fresco, on divine Tuscan cuisine, and let your gaze drift over the floodlit gardens, heady with gardenias, to the 50 acres of pine forests and olive groves beyond. You are bathed in tranquillity yet it’s a five-minute walk to the delightful village of Vorno, and unspoilt Lucca is a ten-minute drive.

Could not recommend Villa Michaela more highly. Stunning villa in beautiful surroundings. All at the villa were so accommodating. Delicious Tuscan restaurants close by. Only complaint was that the holidays had to end!!!
