Customer Reviews

Overall:
We had a very enjoyable time at Casa Coreglia. The views from the living room were very nice. The location was great for day trips to various locations, such as Pisa and Lucca. The weather was a little to cool to enjoy the pool.
Enjoyed Most:
The location was very relaxing and well situated for day trips.
Enjoyed Least:
Getting our luggage from the car to the house. It is uphill all the way.
Surrounding Area:
Seeing parts of Italy which were not overly touristy and more relaxed than the big cities.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The property was situated in an ancient walled village. It was very serene. There was a family run restaurant, a pub, a convenience store and a home supply store.
Tips or Restaurants:
The family run restaurant right by the property was excellent. We were there just before tourist season began, so the restaurant wasn't always open. A few times I went in and ordered dinner to go.
Directions:
The directions provided were very good. BUT, we had a lot of time before our check in so we decided to take the scenic route. We used a GPS. We were coming from a location just south of Firenze. Our route was scenic, in fact the GPS routed us in the back way. The mountain roads we were on were interesting. We did have to call Annamaria, the key holder, as we were very lost once we hit the vicinity. She was excellent to deal with. I would definitely recommend following the directions provided on the rental voucher.
Check In Out:
Check in was great. The key was in the mailbox when we arrived. Jacapo, son of the restaurant owner, helped us get our luggage to the house. A bit later on Annamaria came by to make sure everything was OK and to give us an explanation of the property.

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.

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.
