The hilltop location of the villa means that it has spectacular views of the village and surrounding countryside in all directions. There are so many places in the gorgeous (and undeniably expansive!) gardens to sit and just try to take it all in. We loved it. The antique furniture, objects and artwork in the house made it a lovely place to be and the pool was a welcome addition on hot days. I particularly loved the summer-house kitchen with authentic pizza-oven. Everything was well looked after and maintained and Nora, the house manager was fantastic, helping us out with everything from we needed to know. We used public transport to get around and, while the trains were great, found the local bus service was a little limited. We would definitely hire a car if we were returning (and we would love to go back to La Rocca) so that we could see even more of this beautiful part of Tuscany. That said, even without a car, it was a fantastic two weeks, chilling out, enjoying everything Coreglia had to offer (including a pretty impressive Medieval festival!) and visiting Florence and Lucca. In short, La Rocca is a wonderful place to stay and we wouldn't hestitate to recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Northern Tuscany.

Thanks to Monia and her husband, house was clean and everything as promised as we had two families with 3 toddlers and one teenager. There is no air-con but it wasn't problem as it was nice breeze through upstairs in the night time. As Brian and Debbie wrote, Il Birribisso offered great food and was nice drive from the house. I recommend the villa for anyone who want's to enjoy private villa, pool and Italian wine instead of busy bar right next to hotel. Just be prepared - the track to the house may be scary at first.
