La Rocca is a unique villa, within the ramparts of the ancient castello of the medieval town of Coreglia in the beautiful and unspoilt Garfagnana / Mediavalle area of Tuscany.
This is a wonderful opportunity to experience life within the walls of an ancient castle on the edge of a medieval Tuscan village. The 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 past times, giving the villa an interesting and unique atmosphere. The decoration is beautifully old fashioned, with unusual features.
There is an 8 x 3 metre 'fun' pool in the garden, good for playing in or cooling off.
There are 3 bedrooms in the house, 2 doubles and 1 twin.
Although there is good road access to La Rocca, the ancient walled town of Coreglia is almost traffic free so the peaceful village is very safe for children to explore, or lovely just for a stroll. During summer there are festivals within the Old Town, including an excellent medieval festival in July.
There are 3 restaurants and 2 cafes in the town.
The medieval town of Barga, with its jazz and opera festivals is a few kilometres away and can be seen from the village.
This beautiful, unique old castello villa has a superb garden with a lovely pergola walkway, private out of ground pool, outdoor shower, childrens' play area and superb views. There is a private driveway with parking.
Free Wi-Fi connection is available in the house.
In 2007 Coreglia Antelminelli was votes as one of the nicest villages in Italy
