Located near the small town of Vorno, Casa Felice Matteucci offers luxurious accommodations in the heart of Tuscany.

Surrounded by terraced olive groves, this magnificent 19th-century villa was once the workshop of Felice Matteucci, inventor of the internal combustion engine. Recently restored to the highest level of style and comfort, Casa Felice Matteucci is exceptional in every way.

The magnificent grounds surrounding the villa include a private pond with its own island and a spacious floodlit salt water swimming pool (14m x 4m – depth 1.6m). A BBQ and outdoor tables and chairs invite al fresco dining.

Located just ten minutes from the medieval walled town of Lucca, Casa Matteucci is a perfect base for exploring Chianti and the hilltowns of Tuscany. Florence is an hour away, and Pisa is just 30 minutes. Hike the dramatic cliff villages of the Cinqueterre (1 hour), explore the seaside of the Versilian Riviera (30 minutes) or relax at a nearby thermal spa. Tennis and horseback riding facilities are available in the area, and 18-hole golf courses are found in nearby Montecatini or in Versilia.

Reviews for Casa Felice Matteucci

  • V. Manning
    July 11, 2017

    We rented this villa to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. There was a total of 13 of us and we had a wonderful time. This villa is well cared for and decorated beautifully. The grounds are well maintained and absolutely breathtaking. The pictures on this site don't do it justice. We were welcomed by two wonderful hosts, Barbara and David. They made sure we were comfortable upon our arrival and were very personable. The staff in the kitchen made us feel extra special and made sure we had everything and anything we needed. Truly a special group of individuals. The trip is one that we will never forget and it was because of not only the beautiful villa but the individuals who helped in making this trip a truly memorable one for my parents and family. We are already planning our next visit.
