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.

An English-speaking housekeeper is available to give help or guidance if needed.

Customer Reviews

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.

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.

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.
