Overview

Barga House Rental Photos and Description

House with 3 bedrooms, sleeps 6

La Rocca is a unique villa, built within the ramparts of an ancient Castello of the medieval town of Coreglia in the beautiful and unspoilt Garfagnana / Mediavalle area of Tuscany.

This is a wonderful opportunity to experience life within the walls of an ancient castle in the centre of a medieval Tuscan village. The villa enjoys excellent views over the village rooftops and mountains beyond. The large and well kept garden has several peaceful areas, all within the perimeter wall of the old castello.

The rooms are comfortably furnished with antiques and reminders of past times, giving the villa an interesting and unique atmosphere. The decoration is beautifully old fashioned, with unusual features.

There is an 8 x 3 metre 'fun' pool in the garden, good for playing in or cooling off.

There are 3 bedrooms in the house, 2 doubles and 1 twin.

The ancient walled town of Coreglia is difficult for vehicles to access so the peaceful village is very safe for children to explore, enjoying the freedom that children seldom have nowadays. During summer there are festivals within the Old Town, including an excellent medieval festival in July.

There are 3 restaurants and 2 cafes in the town.

The medieval town of Barga, with its jazz and opera festivals is a few kilometres away and can be seen from the village.

This beautiful, unique old castello villa has a superb garden with a private pool. Free Wi-Fi connection is available in the house.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“Peaceful, fresh and very relaxing”



4 out of 5

The location of the house is spectacular - great views and garden and the height of the place ensures a freshness of air which was very welcome in August. Facilities were good, lots of nice places to sit in the large garden and some toys, swing and slide for chlldren although a toddler swing would be a good idea (was quite frustrating for our toddler not to be able to use it). Pool was fine - worked for us because we had very small children and so we didn't have to worry about them falling in but a proper pool would look a lot better. Some of the furniture could do with an update - garden chairs and the mattress in the second smaller room but all in all good value for money compared to similar lets in the region and a lovely, relaxing place to stay. We all had a great time and would definitely come back.

Beautiful location & place to stay

Beautiful location & place to stay
  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 2 weeks in June 2014
We are 2 families consisting of 4 adults, 2 three year olds and a baby.
Firstly this property really has the wow factor. Situated at the top of the village, the views are amazing, the garden is beautifully kept and the house is rustic charm personified.
The garden was really big having a swing, slide and plenty of sunbeds as well as a number of different eating spots and amazing views. Plus the advertised fun pool (which you could get our kids out of), vines, etc. a really lovely garden....shame the gardener was such a grump who was not happy about us using the summer house and kept putting string around the lock. We checked with the lady who welcomed us, as it was advertised as able to use, and she confirmed we could, so we just cut off the string/wire.
We used the summer house and the pizza oven (my husband being a chef thoroughly enjoyed this).
Couldn't see the organic veg patch it mentions in the advertising.
Inside the house itself, it is equipped with everything you would need.
The DVD player was broken when we got there, we reported it and it was replaced the next day, which I thought was great service.
The master bedroom was v comfortable, with the adjoining room suitable for babycot.
The twin room was great too, although as our 2 three year olds are still falling out of their beds frequently and the falls would have been hard we moved the mattresses onto the floor.
The 2nd double bed was not at all comfy. Reading through the guest book, many people had found this to be the case. Sadly, the couple who were sharing it found it so uncomfortable they ended up swapping with the kids and putting the 2 single beds together for them and the kids in the double.

Coreglia is gorgeous, not far from Pisa, Luca, Florence or the beach if that's what you want. We, however, loved our location so much we mainly explored the local villages in the morning and spent the afternoon by the pool.

We hired 2 cars, you need a car to get about, but don't need one in the village.

All in all we LOVED this place. Really, really loved this place and we were sad to leave.
If the 2nd double bed got sorted and the gardener cheered up a bit it, this, for us, would have been paradise.

Coreglia is an ancient hill town, voted some years ago to be one of the nicest villages in Italy. The streets are traffic free, making it safe for children to explore. Recently the village featured in the BBC programme 'Who do you think you are' which traced the actress Susan Sarandon's family to Coreglia. The village was famous in the 19C for its beautifully crafted figurines, and there is an interesting museum dedicated to the art. In 2005 Coreglia was voted as one of the nicest villages in Italy

The Garfagnana/ Mediavalle area is recreational, superb for walking, mountain biking, fishing and other outdoor activities. We have links with an outdoor activities agency 'Apuans Exploring Mountains'. Nearby Castelnuovo is a market town with fine shops and a weekly market. Also nearby are the resort towns of Bagni di Lucca, with its famous spa baths, and Barga, with its music festivals and art. The art city of Lucca is only 30 minutes drive, and there is a local train service.
