VILLA LUCIA “Under the Tuscan Sun”-Connoisseur Magazine Profile

Written by Aksel Ritenis

(Located near LUCCA, North Tuscany)


Historic VILLA LUCIA is situated in the charming traditional village of Vorno, a delightful gathering of rustic stone farmhouses and majestic villas set in the lush countryside at the foot of Monte Zano in Northern Tuscany.

The main structure of Villa Lucia dates back to the year 500, while later additions and beautiful frescoes reflect the artistic period of the 18th century. The enchanting walled garden was featured in the 2002 edition of Architetture del Verde, a book on elegant Lucchesi villas and formal Italianate gardens. The expansive garden will delight you with its extensive grapevine pergola, ancient grottos and fountains, and swimming pool. For those wanting a little more exercise, the villa offers a gymnasium and our own private tennis court.


Caravaggio, one of the three-room premier suites, has a separate salon with fireplace and a large bathroom with antique tub, double marble basin, and a glass shower that allows sympathetic integration with the historic frescoes.

The deluxe rooms (Bronzino, Raphael, and Michelangelo) are very spacious and have glorious scenic frescoes.

The villas premium rooms Fra Angelico and Da Vinci, are located off the main drawing room that is decorated with beautiful Tuscan silk curtains, marble fireplace, fine antiques and grand piano.

The upper floor houses the villa’s other magnificent premier suite, Botticelli, which boasts its own kitchenette and dining area together with a large bathroom, antique tub and walk-in open marble shower. The two cosy attic bedrooms, Donatello and Giotto, are located off the sumptuous cinema room, which has ample velvet sofas and a state-of-the-art entertainment system with a giant plasma screen.
