Peace and Quiet
The setting is beautiful with spectacular views. The villa is well-maintained and the grounds are lovely.
The views and the grounds.
The drive to the property. The road up is narrow and steep.
The mountains are just beautiful and exploring the small mountain towns in the area is a lot of fun.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The village of Coreglia Antelminelli is about a 15 minute walk from the villa -- lots of hills up and back. But it is a lovely village and to throw back our shutters each morning and see the village across the valley was a true joy.
Tips or Restaurants:
The kitchen is well-equipped, except there was no American-style drip coffee maker. We had to be shown how to use the on-the-stove Italian espresso maker. It makes great coffee once you get the hang of it.
There is a restaurant on the town square of Coreglia Antelminelli that was very nice (L'Arcile) -- Jacopo is a great host!
GPS is really a must -- it's not always reliable, but it proved to be extremely helpful in getting around. The directions are fine.
Check In Out:
All went fine.
It was quaint and the view/sunset was spectacular.
The location of the villa was more remote that we expected.
The walk to the village was delightful.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Coreglia Antelminelli. It was small but charming and we ate at the restaurant 2 nights. The walk was 20-35 minutes depending on the destination in town.
The villa and pool.
Food and wine.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Not within walking distance but a short drive to many small towns: Bagni di Lucca, Lucca, Florence (by train), and Siena.
Tips or Restaurants:
Antica Locanda di Sesto and L'Arcile. There is also a great restaurant that the key holder can tell you about with a gorgeous view.
The directions were good. Also, know that there are signs in the town that look like they may indicate that vehicles cannot go through, but they can!
