About our Home & Gardens

Drive through our entrance, past stone columns, urns and huge agaves and you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to the French or Italian countryside. Only a short drive from downtown Austin, Texas, Le San Michele is a private 12-acre country estate in the Texas Hill Country, complete with magnificent seasonal gardens, statues, fountains and a beautiful pond. It’s the perfect setting for garden weddings, elopements, parties, showers, birthday gatherings, quinceaneras, sweet sixteens, family reunions, maternity portraits, holiday parties, bridals, portraits, engagements, styled shoots, outdoor concerts, cooking classes, painting classes, photography workshops, location for films or corporate events.

This European-style limestone home-turned-event space is perfectly situated with easy access to Austin, known as the “Live Music Capital of the World.” So you’ll have easy access to talented musicians, caterers, florists, bartenders, all ready and able to create your special event. From a food trailer dinner to a formal seated dinner for 300, we’ve hosted a wide range of events.

Le San Michele is a wedding venue beyond comparison. Our unique property offers countless opportunities for photos, brunches, luncheons, receptions and dinners. Ceremonies can be held on our great lawn, or in a more intimate setting. Guests can be seated for dinner on our wide open limestone patio, or in our romantic mesquite tree allee.  Just choose the backdrop for the mood and style you want to set.

We hope you’ll look through our selection of photos to see how Le San Michele can be the perfect setting for your upcoming event.

“Le San Michele was the first and the last venue I looked at for my wedding. I went on a site visit and I knew it was perfect. Virginia was absolutely wonderful to work with. Her house and gardens are an absolute dream. My wedding day was amazing and having it at Le San Michele is one of the main reasons why!”
