Casa Joanna is nestled in the centre of the village with views towards the mountains and Lucca to the north. It has a lovely, private feel about it with the south facing garden giving plenty of space where you can lounge, play, dine and swim in our child-friendly salt water swimming pool (11 m long by 5 m wide). A natural shade is provided by the mulberry trees that sit between the pool and the outdoor dining terrace. Our pool can be heated upon request.
We have an organic vegetable garden for you to use during your stay.
In addition, there is plentiful parking next to the drive.
There are 4 restaurants in Vorno. Restaurant/pizzeria "A Bimbotto" is only a 3 minute walk from the property. Organic agriturismo "Cucina dello Scompiglio” is about a 10 minute walk. Restaurant/coffee house “Il Rio di Vorno” is a 3 minute walk.
The closest supermarket is only a 5 minute drive to the village next door.
Scompiglio also produce very fine wines.
Historic Casa Joanna (the Old School House) is situated within the idylic conservation village of Vorno, in the lush countryside at the foot of Monte Zano. We are ten minutes from Lucca, 35 minutes from Pisa airport and 1 hr to Florence (by car).
We hold painting courses during the spring time in order to capture the Tuscan nature in its' full beauty.
