The drive up to Coreglia Antelminelli was just like an episode of Top Gear as the roads swept, dipped and climbed up the mountain. Having only hired a Fiat Panda meant thats where similarities to Top Gear ended. Arriving at the farmhouse was fun and I really needed the GPS co-ordinates as you leave the tarmac road and go on the winding dirt track around the other side of mountain. Entering the Farmhouse was great and made even nicer by the red wine and basket of food left by the owner, who swung by an hour after we arrived to give us the rundown of the place. The view from the house were amazing right from sun rise where mountains in the distance looked so sharp right up until sunset where the landscape totally changed with the sun casting shadows over the same mountains before setting behind them. A great view to enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine to. The farmhouse had a great sized pool which kept the kids entertained. A nearby village has a mini-market to get the essentials and bigger town at the bottom of the mountain has a more fully stocked supermarket. The farm house itself is well kitted out and the rooms are great. My boys loved exploring around the property. A very relaxing place to stay!

We had a wonderful stay at the villa and enjoyed every minute of it. The house was even better than expected and the pool was beautiful. Carlos and Joanna were great hosts, nothing was a problem for them, always helpful and informative. Thank you!
