La Rocca Castello, pool, Wi-Fi
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This is a wonderful opportunity to experience life within the walls of an ancient castle in the centre of a medieval Tuscan village. This traditional 3 bedroomed villa enjoys excellent views over the village rooftops and mountains beyond. The large and well kept garden has several peaceful areas, all within the perimeter wall of the old castello.
The rooms are comfortably furnished with antiques and reminders of pastimes, giving the villa an interesting and unique atmosphere. The decoration is beautifully old fashioned, with ceiling frescos and other unusual features.
There is free wi-fi in the house.
There is an 8 x 3 metre "fun" pool in the garden, good for playing in or cooling off, also deep enough for swimming.
Guests can help themselves to the seasonal organic produce available in the vegetable garden.
In the garden there is a fine, peaceful summerhouse with cooking facilities.
The village of Coreglia itself is a fine example of a Tuscan hill town. A quiet resort during summer, there are 3 traditional restaurants, bars and some small shops. Although the villa is accessible by road and has its own private parking, very few vehicles can access the main streets of the old village, ensuring a peaceful and traditional feel about the place, great fun and safe for children to explore.
An English speaking house manager will show you around the house and give advice.

The Tuscany region
Tuscany is the most popular region of Italy, famous for its wonderful climate, landscape, and art treasures.
The famous "art" cities of Florence, Sienna and Lucca are huge attractions, whilst the culinary tradition is there to be savoured.
The beautiful walled city of Lucca is only 30 minutes drive away, also reched by train. Lucca is one of Italy's famous 'art cities', the labyrinth medieval streets hosting many museums and galleries. Lucca was the home of Puccini, and an opera is performed every single day of the year. There are a number of other festivals, notably the Lucca Summer Festival, which has several concerts throughout July and August, and has hosted Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Sting and Lauryn Hill among many others.
The famous outdoor Puccini festival is also held throughout July and August at nearby Torre del Lago. Coreglia is around 90minutes from Florence and 45 minutes from Pisa by train or car
Media Valle, set between Lucca and the Garfagnana, is an exotic, lush green area of Tuscany unaffected by mass tourism. The area is superb for walking and climbing, with the famous and spectacular gorge 'Orito di Bordo' nearby. There are also many ancient villages in the area, many worth exploring. The town of Barga, famous for its art exhibitions, summer opera, jazz and food festivals, is only a few kilometres away.
Also nearby is Bagni di Lucca, the spa resort of the Luchessi nobles, with its thermal baths, elegant villas and pretty surroundings. During the summer there are village festivals and concerts.
Coreglia itself is an interesting medieval town with an ancient wall surrounding its old buildings. It is recognised as one of the loveliest villages in Italy. Only the smallest of vehicles can access its narrow streets, making the village very safe for children and recalling the atmosphere of bygone days.
There are 3 restaurants in the village, friendly bars and pleasant parks.
The Garfagnana is a compact area, easily accessible and superb for walking and climbing, mountain biking and other outdoor activities. We have links to an outdoor activities centre who offer guided walks, world class gorge walking and mountain biking amongst other activities.
