Coreglia Antelminelli Villa Rental Photos and Description

Max Beds: 4, Min Beds: 2, Double Beds: 1, Single Beds: 1, Baths: 2, Reference: 12865

Suited for a couple with children, this Tuscany villa near Lucca offers charm, comfort, and convenience. Not only does this villa for rent in Tuscany have its own swimming pool, it is also located on the edge of an authentic hill town, where you can explore shops during the day and amble around in the evening until you find that perfect Italian restaurant. Want to explore? This Tuscany holiday villa is also excellently located for taking day trips to Lucca, Pisa, and Florence.

This small villa has a well-maintained private garden, which enjoys incredible views of the Appenine Alps, the backbone of Italy. There is an upper terrace with garden, furniture, and a barbecue-- perfect for al fresco meals. The heated swimming pool and terrace are perfectly situated for enjoying the beautiful views, not to mention sunbathing! The swimming pool (8m x 4m) is open and heated only from May to September. The swimming pool is an above-ground pool which has had a terrace built around it. Public parking is available a five-minute walk from the property. Parking is not allowed at the property because the town is completely pedestrian. Please do note that this property is situated in an ancient hilltop town, in which the day-to-day lifestyle continues as it has for generations. You will hear the sounds of the local church bells and clocks chiming throughout the day. Please also note that because of the location of this town, in the mountains, the water pressure can be erratic, particularly during times of the day when water demand is high. An English-speaking housekeeper is available to give help or guidance if needed.

Ground Floor: The entrance of this villa opens into an entryway with a staircase leading up to the first floor. The rooms of the ground floor run in sequence, so that one must pass through one room to get to the next. The first room is the kitchen, which is equipped with a cook-top, oven, and washing machine. Next comes the dining room, which has a table for four or six and opens onto the pool terrace in the back. Passing through the dining room, you will find yourself in the living room, which is comfortably furnished with sofas and armchairs, and has doors letting out onto the back terrace. Finally, there is a bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower.

First Floor: Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The first bedroom has a queen-size bed (160 cm). The second has a bunk bed suitable for two children. There is also a bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Perfect for truly embracing the Italian way of life... Simple, number of small villages close by and non commercial.

Good for a getaway experience for those wanting to take short day trips to larger towns, if willing to drive on Italian roadways, preparing their own meals and no TV.

Enjoyed Most:

Views, small town, pool, simplicity.

Enjoyed Least:

Small bathroom and small bedroom. Living room furniture, which consists of two small chairs and a small sofa, are a bit worn.

Surrounding Area:

Luca, Pisa, Barga, Devils Bridge, and the views and simplicity of the town.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Coreglia

Tips or Restaurants:

Be willing to drive if you want to take in famous towns and sites.

Great place for quiet solitude and simplicity.

Directions:

Need distance between turns.

Check In Out:

Well done.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Coreglia. The site and the view especially are absolutely beautiful. Event better than the pictures. The villa is very nice and has everything to make your stay pleasant. We would definitively recommend this place.

Enjoyed Most:

Its location, the view, and the fact that it is so quiet around there (very little circulation, no cars in the village).

Enjoyed Least:

Although it was mentioned (not a surprise), the fact that the bell of the nearby church (actually, a few feet from the villa) rings every hour from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM everyday was a little bit annoying at first, considering that it is so quiet apart from that. We got used to it and found it amusing at the end. Might be bothersome for someone wishing to sleep late.

Surrounding Area:

We really liked walking around in the small village. Again, everyday you look, the view is simply breathtaking.

Nearby Events or Locales:

The villa is located in Coreglia Antelminelli (just at the border of the village.) So, you are already in the village and can walk to one of three little grocery store. Yo could technically not take your car at all. Yo have to take your car to go to larger village and town. Count on 10-15 minutes to reach other villages where you will find larger stores and restaurants.

Tips or Restaurants:

If you are looking for a very good meal, you can go to Ristorante Buttefly, near Lucca, a 35-minute drive. The restaurant has a Michelin Star which is well deserved. Count approximately 100 Euros per person with wine. Otherwise, we cooked our food most of the time. The kitchen is not large, but has everything you need.

Directions:

We used a GPS and could not program it as suggested. We ended up taking smaller roads.

Check In Out:

Anna Maria was very nice and helpful. No problem with the check-in or check-out.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Our family enjoyed staying at Casa Coreglia. It's close to Lucca--about 30 minutes. The pool was great with the kids.

Enjoyed Most:

The pool and how close the restaurant across the street is--for those nights when we did not want to drive.

Enjoyed Least:

The bed.

Surrounding Area:

The view of the mountains and the distance to Lucca.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Bagni Di Lucca which is a 15 minute drive. The villa is in Coreglia Antelminelli, which is very quiet.

Tips or Restaurants:

Not sure I am spelling it right, but L'Article right in front of the house.

Directions:

We came from Florence, so I would not plug in the address of the house into the GPS until we got to the Lucca exit off of the A11 Autostrada.

Check In Out:

Very smooth.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

The property is wonderful. The church bells ring every 12 hours from 6 am to 12 pm. This may bother some people but we found it charming and got used to them right away.

Enjoyed Most:

The views from the back yard and the local people who were very peaceful and quiet.

Enjoyed Least:

The internet was a bit of a problem and there is no TV, only dvd and videos. But we were on vacation, so who cares!

Surrounding Area:

There are so many surrounding towns to be explored. Short day trips that allowed us to be back at the villa in the late afternoon to enjoy the villa and the small town we were in.

Nearby Events or Locales:

No towns within walking distance-a few bars and gelato places in our town. Otherwise a car ride down the mountain and lots of surrounding towns.

Tips or Restaurants:

The restaurant next to the villa is wonderful and casual. Everything was casual so no nice clothes are necessary. I do recommend getting up and going to the close cafe for the bread truck that delivers fresh bread every morning for a small amount of Euros.

Directions:

Directions from Lucca were hard. If you use GPS type in Barga and that will lead you to Coreglia Antelminelli. which heads you up the mountain to the town. Barga is 8 Kilometers north.

Check In Out:

Sometimes is was difficult to get in touch with the managerdue to cell phone problems.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

This villa was perfect for my wife and me. The back yard is beautiful with incredible views. The interior was well maintained and very comfortable. We loved the small town and its people.

Enjoyed Most:

It was a nice, comfortable, quiet refuge after a full day of touring Tuscany,

Enjoyed Least:

Although the property is only not very far from Lucca in KM's it is a slow trip and took as long as an hour each way. Once we knew how remote it was we rescheduled several longer trips and stayed closer to home.

Surrounding Area:

Beautiful mountains. After a hot day in the valley Coreglia was a nice cool place to come home to.

Nearby Events or Locales:

The villa is in the town of Coreglia next door to the church. It is no more that 20 meters from a great restaurant named L'Arcile, which is as good as any that we dined at

Tips or Restaurants:

Shop in Lucca and stock up on supplies before you check in. There are very few grocery options in Coreglia.

Directions:

The directions were fine but tedious. I would have people follow signs to Barga and then make the final corrections before passing Piano de Coreglia. We used a GPS and it was very poor in The smaller areas of Tuscany. It worked well for day trips to larger areas, but sent us on very poor roads instead of major ones in the Garfagnana area.
