I was invited, by a friend to join her at Villa Michaela, in Vorno near Lucca,for this past Easter holiday. Our rooms in the main house had the charming names of ‘Verdi’ and ‘Camalia’ flanking one side of a huge piano filled sitting room. In the morning you could hear the doves cooing and in the evening, the song of church bells. Our king sized beds were divine, comfy and beautifully made up. The gardens were in full bloom with red camellias, yellow roses and a peak display of fragrant wisteria. This week long stay was what Tuscan dreams are made of, encouraging one to water color or write prose. Too cold to swim but perfect for a hike up the hill through the olive groves. So many beautiful pictures on the walls, mirrors, side boards and porcelains to live with. I am looking forward to my next trip, hoping to ride bicycles around Lucca again and to have more fabulous dining pleasures in the villa’s gardens.

Beautiful rooms, magnificent views, and Vorno is a perfect little village boasting a local restaurant better than it ought to be. Amazing real Italy with incredibly welcoming hosts. Stunning walks from the house across the valley and over Lucca and into the snow-cropped mountains. A* Italian destination.

Had the pleasure of returning to Villa Michaela a few weekends ago for a birthday party. Could not speak more highly of the place!! Beautiful building and stunning grounds in a sleepy Tuscan village - excellent restaurants a stone’s throw away. Our room was plush - gigantic comfortable bed with a beautiful view of the valley that stretches out to the city of Lucca. We were only a short drive into town even though the peace and quiet in the mornings couldn’t feel more remote!! Only problem is that we couldn’t stay for longer!!! Can’t wait to come back!!!

Villa Michaela is beautiful. The sort of idyllic hideaway that you hope and dream exists, but that you never chance to stumble upon unless you are in the know. I was lucky enough to experience its wonders for a friend's birthday and I can honestly say that it is the most beautiful and magical place I have ever stayed in - it has traditional frescoes decorating its walls, a chapel, a dining room of epic proportions complete with elegant chandeliers, and all sorts of curiosities and art to peruse, if that sort of pastime appeals to you (as it does to me). Wandering the villa makes you simultaneously feel as if you have stepped back into the past and onto a film set. It really is all that. We were lucky enough to have delicious meals both at the villa and at the local restaurant in the village, and to spend a day in Lucca, which is a short drive away. It is an epic location for a party, holiday, wedding, any sort of special event or getaway, and what makes it so refreshing is that it is full of character and original features. Such things cannot be easily replicated or found in a world of sterile hotel chains and monotony. What's more, it is great to know that the places of dreams can exist! Everyone at the villa was amazing, and helped to make the stay as special as it was, so thank you Villa Michaela and all for a truly wonderful time!

Villa Michaela is a stunning example of the type of villas that dot the countryside around Tuscany. The house itself has a grand charm, nestled in the hills behind the church in Vorno village. The pictures don't do the area justice - the grounds are verdant, the pool is refreshing, and the Villa fits seamlessly into its surroundings. I stayed with my girlfriend and a group of friends for her birthday, and we couldn't have had a better time. Each room is unique, from the luxurious Dante suite with its giant bath and huge windows, to the lovely coach house. The village is sweet and quiet with a great restaurant just around the corner, but is well situated for some gorgeous walks, with a few more options ~20 minutes away. The hike up to the observatory and into the forest is breathtaking...coming from London it's so great to get some clean, fresh air. You can extend it into a 1.5 hour hike that takes you all the way back to the back garden of the house by the tennis courts. Lucca is a short drive away (~15 min) and is one of the loveliest little towns in Tuscany. The Villa itself can accommodate groups, and I think this is really where it comes into its own. For a weekend away with friends, we had such a great time eating delicious food, exploring the local area, having a wonderful catered dinner organised by the host, singing in the chapel, and just having the best time. If this sounds like your type of holiday, I would definitely recommend it.
