Customer Reviews

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.

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.

Overall:
Relaxing and peaceful.
Enjoyed Most:
The position on the town wall and the magnificent view.
Enjoyed Least:
The kitchen
Surrounding Area:
It was lovely to walk around town especially at dusk. There is an abundance of great places to visit during the day. Car is essential.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Coreglia is at the bottom of the hill, an easy walk down but need a car to return home.
Tips or Restaurants:
We spent the days exploring surrounding areas and ate in most evenings.
Directions:
We used a GPS that took us along the same side of the river as Coreglia but found the more major road on the other side of the river was a much easier drive to get out of the valley towards Lucca.
