About Villa Michaela

Via di Valle 8, Vorno
Lucca, Tuscany Italy
Tuscany, 55060

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 50 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 125 , designed and built 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,

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  75 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.

Unforgettable Tuscan Wedding
Venue Service

By Olivia Hedley, on 14 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2019

I attended the most picturesque wedding at Villa Michaela over the Summer. We arrived in Pisa airport & were at Villa Michaela within 30minutes. The Villa & surroundings are truly what dream weddings are made from: Blue tinted mountains, rolling olive groves, the faint smell of rose & fig in the air. We hiked & swam in the huge beautiful pool. The intimate chapel where the ceremony took place managed to fit around 120 of us. We were walking distance from fab restaurants & only 5kms to Lucca. The food & wine were spectacular & the house was perfect for a party. I have fallen in love with Villa Michaela and can not wait until we meet again.

Romantic idyllic Tuscany
Venue Service

By David Blake, on 31 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2019

I attended my niece Katie s wedding last year with all my family at the wonderfully atmospheric Villa Michaela and it was indeed a memorable occasion . It is a privately English owned villa with accommodation for 39 people and a wonderful chapel actually attached to the main villa where the service took place which managed to seat all of us - more than 100 people. Being a bit of a musician myself I was amazed at the acoustics and the quality of the villa grand piano ! Wonderful views, huge pool, great food and brilliant wedding organiser who went to so much trouble with everything . Other memorable points were the walk down the little road to the village trattoria which laid on a huge Tuscan banquet for us all at a massive table in the garden and also we very much enjoyed the ancient pizza oven in the grounds of the villa where a chef whipped us up some amazing and unusual pizzas ! Great place to get married and very close to Pisa airport and Lucca but perfectly secluded in lovely green hills, and olive groves.
