Near Lucca, in the special valley of Vorno, is a small paradise called Villa Casale. The ancient casale, originally used partially as a mill for the family and the few inhabitants of the village and part as a farmhouse, has been beautifully restored.

It has no architectural pretences, is of simple lines, and the materials used in construction are those of the time: stones, hand-made bricks, timber beamed ceilings, terracotta floors. As was customary, the ground floor was used to house animals and the farm workers slept upstairs.

The spirit of this place, near a small village just outside Lucca, lies in its absolute simplicity and today, even if the mill wheel no longer turns, the timeless ancient atmosphere and flavors are present. Quiet, silence and serenity is the philosophy of life offered here, as Villa Casale is brought back to life for your enjoyment. Here in the warm golden afternoons you can breathe these simple values of the past.

Today the rooms of the old mill have become intimate and luxurious living rooms, full of warmth and welcome: the old stable on the ground floor is now the dining room where we can admire the vaulted ceiling, the stonework and other traditional workmanship.

The large kitchen, the entry hall with its big window onto the garden, bringing it inside, the study and a powder room continue in the same rustic but elegant style. In addition, how can we forget the two stone fireplaces once so indispensable, which still revive warmth and memories of family gatherings, old stories and friendly conversations?

On the upper floor are five double bedrooms, each with private bathroom. Three-room face north with views to the hills and the valley and two look southwards over the brook and the garden. Of the five bedrooms, one is a large master suite with sitting room.

Furnishings have been carefully and patiently selected during the work of restoration to provide the utmost in comfort and luxury, with period furniture and splendid decorative objects. Nothing has been left to chance. Bathrooms are luxurious, fêtes with tubs and showers.


The spacious garden is filled with potted lemons, olive trees, pines, camellias, wisteria, roses, lavender, rosemary and fruit trees, all forming a splendid backdrop to the swimming pool. Enjoy conversations under the gazebo, relaxation by the pool or under the natural pergola of the wisteria, or dining al fresco in the place of your choice.
