There is a wonderful calm to the village, interrupted only by the Church bells every half hour!

In summer one can spend all day on the terrace watching swallows darting to and fro, and swooping buzzards.

At other times you can watch the weather unfold before you, sometimes the clouds actually sit below the terrace height. A huge open fire heats the main room on the first floor.

Further details indoors

The property has most mod cons, including gas hob, oven (electric), refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.

There is no freezer, nor is there a TV.

But wifi is available included in the letting price, so guests can use multi-media devices.

There is also an electric piano for guest use.

Because the closest car park is a good 200 yards from the property, guests with mobility issues might wish to be prepared. The village is sadly not wheelchair friendly.

Further details outdoors

The nearest car park to Via di Castello 14 is a walk of about 200 metres along cobbled streets, so it's best to make sure you have wheeled luggage!

The house itself has no garden, but a very large terrace overlooks the valley below. Given that there is a vertical drop of about 20 metres from the terrace, we recommend that the property is NOT suitable where there are young children unsupervised.

There is a sports field at the bottom of the village, ideal for ball games and letting off steam.

Further details

Included in the cost of the let is a light cleaning only, therefore guests are requested to leave the property in the state in which they find it!

The Tuscany region

Officially in the Media Valle region, this lesser-known part of Tuscany has a rich history dating over 1,000 years, when the area was an important trading route. There are numerous medieval towns and villages to explore, and the cultural centres of Florence (Firenze), Pisa and Lucca are well within reach.

In Winter there is skiing at Abetone (1.5 hours drive) while in Summer, apart from the numerous local rivers, the coast at Marina di Pisa or Viareggio is little more than an hour's drive.

There is a wealth of culture with Festivals of all kinds, Jazz, Opera, Classical through the Summer in nearby cities.


It is possible to have a holiday without straying far from the village of Tereglio. There are places to within walking distance, and for the more energetic, signed walks (Orrido di Botri in the summer months is worth mentioning) from the village itself.

With a car (you will only be able to get to withing 220 metres of Via di Castello by car!) one can explore the beautiful surroundings, whether up into the hills where the refuges also serve delicious food or further afield along the Serchio Valley to Barga, Castelnuovo in Garfagna and countless other places of interest.

Children love paddling in the many local rivers - some deep enough for swimming. There are also regular swimming pools in surrounding towns.

The region is an epicure's delight! Local produce available in the village includes all manner of cheeses and meats, as well as the chestnut honey which is a must. The village shop also bakes bread and biscuits.

"Idyllic mountain village retreat with breathtaking views"

We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful but simply furnished stone house in Tereglio, an ancient village perched on a wooded mountain. The terrace is wonderful for relaxing and eating meals al fresco with views across the valley. The kitchen has everything you need for entertaining. The bedrooms are comfortable and decorated in restful muted colours with ensuite bathrooms & excellent showers. There are so many places to visit in the local area including the natural locations where you can swim in the refreshing rivers and hike in the mountains. The nearest town, Bagni di Lucca has a wonderful swimming pool where you can relax and eat at the restaurant. I took my two daughters aged 16 & 7 and they both enjoyed the holiday. We visited the beach and had a day sight-seeing in Florence, travelling by train. We also hired a car from the airport at Pisa which gave us the freedom to explore the surrounding area.

"Amazing medieval hilltop holiday"

This is a fantastic 4 storey house situated in Tereglio, North Tuscany, a medieval village dating back to the 10th century. Not only can you spend hours exploring this extraordinary place which ranges along the crest of a mountain but the walking in the surrounding countryside is spectacular. Wildlife abounds; plants, trees and many species of birds and mammals including a few porcupines! The house itself is very well appointed with everything you need including wifi. It is particularly special to lie in the hammock on the loggia watching the sun go down, or admire the geckos catching moths at dusk. Recommendations; go to the Orrido di Botri and walk in the river, walk to Vitiana, sit in front of a crackling log fire in the winter, visit the Devil's bridge (Ponte della Maddalena) at Bagni di Lucca, listen to the owls hooting in the forest at night. Magical!
