Rooted in the famed foothills of Lucca, Tuscany, Villa Michaela is a drop of Italian heaven. Nestled amongst 50 acres of olive groves, gardens, and panoramic views, the 18th C estate is a fairy-tale wedding venue sleeping 39 people with the balance of your guests being able to stay in three excellent bed and breakfasts within 5 minutes walk of the villa.
Please take a moment to watch our wedding video at the end of our entry.
Situated in the middle of the picturesque village of Vorno (home of the inventors of the internal combustion engine Barsanti and Matteucci), Villa Michaela is only five minutes walk from a traditional family owned trattoria/pizzeria where many of our bridal parties book a huge table for the Friday night with a wonderful value set dinner including wine. "Il Bimbotto di Vorno".
We are also lucky enough to have 4 excellent bed and breakfasts within easy walking distance of the villa sleeping about another 50 people and we also have parking for 30 cars.
Just a stone’s throw from the village of Vorno and 25 minutes from Pisa airport, Villa Michaela is conveniently connected and yet exists in a world apart, in a haze of warm stone and the heady perfume of a thousand flowers. Untouched but lovingly maintained since it was built many years ago, it bursts with a unique charm and heritage.
The venue has a range of locations for you to host your day, which can all be decorated to suit your chosen style. The options even include the possibility of saying " I do " in the Villa's own celebrated chapel seating 120, designed by the famed Tuscan architect Lorenzo Nottolini (1787-1851) also responsable for the Lucca acquaduct. The acoustics are second to none and the chapel comes complete with a very superior grand piano. We have local musicians of all types who can attend either the service or the reception / dinner.
For your wedding breakfast and throughout your celebrations, the chefs at Villa Michaela will be on hand to create a gourmet menu, drawing from traditional recipes and the freshest of local produce. You are of course welcome also to organise your own catering /wedding organiser etc and indeed to bring your own chefs if preferred. We offer an all in price for the wedding dinner which includes all tables, chairs, cutlery, waiters, water and half bottle of wine per head.
Crockery, glasses, wine, waiters, a delicious three course Tuscan dinner, wedding cake and fruit and cheese platters. Depending on the main courses selected the price varies between euros 98 per head and euros 120 per head.
We also specialise in smaller intimate groups and are able to create a whole weekend activity programme for you and your guests, including a pizza party using our centuries old pizza oven and a trip to Lucca to cycle the walls or dip in to its historical architecture and atmosphere.
