Celebrate Thanksgiving the Tuscan way at Villa Michaela, from Wednesday the 23rd till Sunday the 27th of November 2016.
You will be here for the period of the Olive Harvest and the beautiful autumn colours of Tuscany. Explore Lucca, the undiscovered jewel in the Tuscan crown, without the marauding hordes and high temperatures of the summer season.
Get in some early Christmas shopping in the fabulous boutiques of Lucca. Go wine tasting at the local enoteca and try some of the regions finest wines. Explore the culinary delights of the region in the various trattorias in Vorno and Lucca or visit the frantoio (olive press) and learn all about how olive oil is produced.
Enjoy walks in the crisp country air or cycle on Lucca’s famed mediaeval walls then return to the villa for some backgammon, chess or bridge and a glass of wine within the luxurious comfort of the Villa.
In the evening attend an opera recital of the best arias from Puccini, Verdi and Mozart at the beautiful oratorio of the Museo della Cattedrale, every Friday and Saturday night; Puccini e La Sua Lucca.
Of course the highlight of your Thanksgiving at Villa Michaela will be the fabulous Tuscan style Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings that our chefs will prepare in our traditional Limonaia kitchen and serve to you in our beautiful frescoed dining room.
We hope you are able to join us!
