This grand, 18th-century villa sits among the pine-covered hills of Tuscany, between Lucca and Pisa. A rural retreat with 14 bedrooms, a swimming pool and tennis court, it’s a much-loved venue for weddings and events.
Just outside the historical village of Vorno, the large luxury villa stands within 50 acres of gardens and olive groves. It’s an easy 25-minute drive from Pisa International Airport, and just 15 minutes to Lucca. It’s worth a day trip to this impressive Medieval city, known for its pretty piazzas and promenades. Alternatively, you can explore the local countryside on foot or horseback, taking in the spectacular views of the Italian countryside.
The interior of this splendid villa is an eclectic mix of Italian style and British design. In the main villa, there are 10 individually-decorated bedrooms, nine of which have en suites. In the separate luxury farmhouse, Casa Una, there are a further three double bedrooms and one triple room.
The property has several beautiful reception rooms, large games rooms and a home cinema, but the highlight is the grand dining room. Seating up to 35 guests, this exquisite room features original frescoes and antique Venetian chandeliers. There are also numerous outdoor dining areas within the immaculate private gardens, as well as a tennis court and huge swimming pool.
At Villa Vorno, you’ll start the day with a continental breakfast served in the stunning Limonaia kitchen. This building where the lemon trees were traditionally stored each winter is now a beautifully-decorated kitchen with space for up to 20 guests. There’s also a housekeeping and laundry service provided throughout your stay.
