While I realize this building is centuries old it would still be nice if they updated some of the furnishings and fixtures. For the price I don't think many people would expect a soiled sofa with a big hole in it, and while the old skeleton keys are quaint I expect to be able to lock the door when we... More

Stunning villa in perfect village, olives and lemons, presecco in the charming garden. Many surprises. You won't stay anywhere more charming. Lovely walks from the villa in the hills. Great views and good restaurant short walk. Thank you Bron for making our stay so special. Would love to come back.

I brought 18 girls to Villa Michaela over a long weekend in April for my sister's hen party. Everything about our stay exceeded expectations - our host, Bron, was delightful, recommending things for us to do in Lucca and putting on the most delicious spread of food for breakfast; the Villa itself was spectacular - the rooms were adorned with...

Staying at Villa Michaela felt just like that - like I was living a dream. The charm and pure beauty of the place, mixed in with the history and otherworldly elements to the property make Villa Michaela the penultimate Tuscan escape from the business of every day life. Easy to see this would be a wonderful location for a birthday... More

Not only was the weather amazing along with the hospitality but the views, the rooms etc were just stunning and really made my weekend getaway irreplaceable and made some life long memories. To have the chance to only spend a few hours travelling and end up in such a beautiful paradise surprised me. I will do everything I can to... More

I have now stayed at Villa Michaela a number of times now while away on business. It is a Magical property with excellent hosts. The grounds and pool are wonderful, with a secluded garden. It is also very close to the city of Lucca.

I have had the privilege of spending several holidays at Villa Michaela over the past decade. This villa is a piece of history with the most extraordinary antiques and collection of art and paintings combined with every modern convenience including a swimming pool framed in local stone and a tennis court amidst the olive groves. Every bedroom has an ensuite... More

I'm a musician from munich and i stayed for new years eve 2014 at the Villa Michaela with my wife and my two children. First of all we met David Blake who was as nice as someone can be to our children. He was to sum it up the perfect host. The Villa is for people who are into movies... More

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights to celebrate our anniversary last year. On arrival we were welcomed by Lucie and Gavin with a much appreciated cold glass of wine and shown to our room. The room itself was beautiful, like travelling back in time. The furnishings are not new and plush as in a modern hotel,... More

I like this place a lot. Spent about 7 days there in two different visits in December 2014 and Eary january 2015. It's funny because I've seen some of the reviews refer to Villa Michaela as having a bit of a haunted house vibe... maybe so. Any authentic Tuscan villa should have an element of that! Couple of things that... More
