Casa Joanna is situated in the charming traditional village of Vorno, famous for Royal families of the past who designed and built their summer villas in this tranquil, temperate village just south of Lucca (10 minutes drive) and north of Pisa (30 minutes drive). Chosen for its beauty, the views of the rolling Tuscan hills and the ever so slightly cooler temperature in the summer, Vorno became the home of some of the most amazing villas in Tuscany. Today the village has four restaurants, a village shop/ butchers, church and cafe. There is a regular bus service into Lucca. Located within the walls of Villa Lucia, Casa Joanna has it's own private garden, separate entrance and parking. The school house was designed and constructed in a grand style well over a century ago. The 4 metre high ceilings on the piano terra give an open spacious feel to the rooms with a large chandeliers hanging from the brick-laid vaults. A terrace provide al fresco dining for guests, partly shaded by an old cherry tree and mulberry trees. The delightful garden of terracotta pots, fruit trees, local flowers and scented climbers of jasmine and honey suckle create a truly Tuscan feel. The house can be rented out as one whole with 6 en-suite bedrooms or two separate houses with their own staircases and 3 en-suite bedrooms (not available as option in high Summer). All beds have Sleepezee 2000 pocket sprung mattresses, with linen of 400 thread count. The pool is salt water and exclusive for a six bedroom rental. Drinking water in the villa is spring water. We are very lucky! Casa Joanna is full of art, books and games. The kitchens are well equipped. There is fibre optic broadband wi-fi available. Roman is our house manager, who lives about 5minutes away with his family. He is on hand to provide any help required. We have several chefs we use to prepare meals, cooking schools, cooking demonstrations (extra costs provided upon enquiry). Roman is happy to arrange transport from and to the airport (extra cost upon enquiry). We can arrange beauticians, and hairdressers if required (extra cost upon enquiry). Bikes can also be organised (extra cost upon enquiry). Roman is also a registered tour guide and will happily assist (extra cost upon enquiry). For all these extras, we do ask that you give us as much notice as is possible.

Our third trip to Casa Joanna, which is simply a stunning property that is very well maintained and cared for and offers a luxurious, spacious, and ‘warm’ environment to relax for the whole family. Every one loved the pool, the beautiful art and homely touches that make this home feel like your very own Tuscan retreat. Correspondence ahead of our stay was, as ever, timely and helpful. Contacted during our stay was courteous and helpful, and we can only say THANK YOU SARAH & ROMAN for your service and care. The local restaurants are fabulous, the local people are friendly and caring, and the local countryside (which I spent time exploring on an mountain bike, and my wife ran trails in the hills) is simply breath-taking. Cannot recommend this place enough! Until next year!

Amazing Tuscan Villa

A lovely property in a very quaint village!54 Via della Boccaccia, Capannori, Tuscany, 55012, Italy

11 May 2017

We had a party of 5 that thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the West side of Casa Joanna. The apartment looks even better than the photos can indicate. The bedrooms are all nicely sized and each has its own individual bathrooms. The master bathroom is particularly nice with 2 sinks, a ver nice shower, and soaking tub from which you view the forested hills outside of Vorno. The common space is very large open room with a huge table (that can seat more than a dozen people), a very nice kitchen and a seating area that has a comfortable couch and love seats. The kitchen has all of the equipment needed to cook whatever you'd like. It also has all of the utensils, plates, bowls, etc as well as glasses that you would ever need. When we arrived, there was milk in the fridge, coffee in the cabinet, and a loaf of fresh bread on the counter as well as fresh flowers in the bedrooms. The outdoor space is very nice and we used the pool and comfortable lounge chairs and ate most of our meals out side under the canopy. The owners happened to be staying in the east side of the villa. They were very respectful, warm and helpful hosts. The property manager was responsive and very helpful. One thing to note is that the deposit and rental payments are paid via wire transfers. In my case, that added $100 to the cost of the stay. It was still worthwhile but something to be aware of. Vorno is a very quaint town with nice amenities. There is a very good restaurant called Bimbotta just a couple of blocks away. It bills itself as a pizza restaurant but actually has a much broader menu including pasta and meats. Also 2 blocks away is a very good butcher shop.

Casa Joanna is set in the Tuscan Hills with a beautiful view of the mountains. This being our first time to Tuscany, the property was exactly what we imagined it would look like....complete with beautiful gardens, cypress trees, fresh herbs, bay leaf hedges and so much more, The villa was perfect.....very spacious yet inviting and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need to make your stay wonderful (including dishwasher, gas stove, washer, fully equipped kitchen, plush towels, etc). We found the kitchen to be a wonderful place to cook, eat, enjoy wine and hang out. We had a cooking class in the villa with Chef Valentino and it was an incredible experience. We loved cooking together and then eating out on the terrace. The bedrooms are all ensuite and a good size. The beds were very comfortable. The property is ideally located to do day trips throughout all of Tuscany. We used a tour company called "Cruises on the Road in Tuscany" and they were amazing to work with. We visited Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena and Cinque Terre And then to make a perfect situation even better, we met Roman, the property manager. When we arrived, Roman was there to meet us with Prosecco and a welcome basket of Tuscan goodies. From there, it only got better! He made sure that every part of our trip was perfect and he treated us like family. Roman was a big part of why this trip was so amazing!! Casa Joanna exceeded our expectations. We stayed at the villa for five nights and we absolutely fell in love with the people and the place. We definitely will go back one day!

Our family recently came back from a two week vacation in Italy of which we spent one glorious week in Tuscany. The six bedroom eight bathroom Casa Johanna was perfect for our group of nine (we could have used more people actually!). Both Roman and Sarah made us feel very welcomed and the huge villa had all the amenities one could ask for. The pool was well used almost every day by our kids and the canopies and loungers were great! The grounds were immaculate with beautiful flowers and greenery. The 360 degree views of the Tuscan hills and the city lights of Lucca were amazing. The pictures, as one previous guest mentioned, do not do the place justice. We also loved the area and had a chance to explore. Peace and blissful quiet was just what we needed. Thank you very much for hosting us Roman and Sarah!! We hope to be back one day! ~With much love and appreciation, the Hwang's

Italian rural idyll


By Karin M on 30-Dec-2014

There were 5 in our group and our ages ranged from v early 20s, through the mid fifties and on up to mid 70s and we were here for our post Christmas holiday and New Year celebrations and it was all here for all of us. Villa Johanna, once upon a time the village school, is truly delightful: comfortable, clean, well maintained, quiet, relaxing, elegant, gracious, private and yet close enough to divine Lucca to ensure we all tasted the full Italian life on offer. We shopped close by for food and cooked our meals in the large family kitchen/living room. We indulged in the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted in Lucca after a cycle ride around the city walls and we partied in a local hostelry to bring in 2014. Walking around the village gave us a true taste of an unchanging way of life that is rarely experienced these days. We shall return!

Fantastic original Italian Villa


By JAQK on 30-Dec-2014

Situated just outside Lucca, this beautiful villa is stunning and secluded in gorgeous gardens with a swimming pool. The villa is tastefully furnished, has a huge living room /kitchen plus generous size bedrooms with ensuite. Surrounded by fab views of Lucca and the countryside, there are so many walks to explore, including the local village and church. The villa exudes originality and authenticity.

We had a wonderful time there - you definitely need a car to explore and get to Lucca which is an amazing walled city, full of history. Highly recommended.

Beautiful accommodation: authentic Tuscan


By Paula From London on 30-Dec-2014

My husband and two children stayed here for a week and we could

not have been happier. We had a magical holiday, which was very

peaceful, surrounded by stunning landscapes. The house itself is truly sumptuous and luxurious, yet so comfortable and inviting. Our youngest son loved the grounds which were secure and large enough to find a number of super secret hiding places. The newly refurbished pool and garden make all the difference when it comes to dining outside. We absolutely adore this holiday villa and have already booked to go again in 2015. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wishes for a true taste of luxurious and authentic Tuscany. Close enough to Lucca but far enough into the hills for a true getaway.

Fabulous Vacation Spot


By Ed - Virginia on 04-Nov-2014

Our group of 5 stayed at Casa Joanna for 10 days in late September-early October. The on-line photos, description, and Google Maps & Street View did not do the property justice. It was so much better than we could have imagined. We stayed in the eastern half of the house with 3 large en-suite bedrooms, a large, fully equipped modern kitchen, free wireless internet, warm family room and huge beautiful, private yard, cabanas, swimming pool, and gardens. The views are unbelievable from the grounds and bedrooms towards the mountains to the south and Lucca and the the Apennines Mountains to the north. Working with the owners and reserving the property was very easy (international wire transfer with excellent instructions). The property is located in the quaint, quiet, and beautiful village of Vorno in the heart of Tucscany which contained several great small restaurants within easy walking distances - Bimbotto's, Osteria Cucina dello Scompiglio, La Bettola, and il Rio. The people are all very friendly and helpful and patient with our poor Italian vocabulary although most spoke some English. The village had great walking and hiking trails with fantastic views towards Lucca and the mountains north. The house is located 4 miles from the Lucca train station from which we traveled to Rome and the Cinque Terra. We rented an auto and easily navigated all over the area to the Mediterranean beaches close by - Marina di Vecchiano (10 miles) and Forte dei Marmi. We drove to Lucca, Pisa, several wineries, Volterra, and Montecarlo. The wine and food was fantastic. The Caretaker, Roman, speaks English well. He was invaluable in helping plan our trips, giving advice, making suggestions, and taking care of the property. He also met us at Pisa Airport where we rented a car and he escorted us to Casa Joanna only about 30 minute drive away. I would highly recommend vacationing at Casa Joanna and all of my traveling companions agreed that it was one of our most relaxing, memorable, and fun vacations we had ever taken.
