Description

This historic 17th century villa is in the medieval town of Coreglia Antelminelli, set in the hills of the Appenines in the beautiful Garfagnana region of Tuscany.

The beautifully decorated garden apartment has a living room, a fully equipped kitchen and two en-suite bedrooms.
The large traditional Italian garden and terrace has a lovely private swimming pool, which is exclusive to the apartment. The garden is beautifully kept by the owner and it features a Limonia, outdoor kitchen and fabulous views.

The apartment is on the ground floor. It is very tastefully decorated with Italian antique furniture. The garden can be reached directly from the kitchen as well as from the master bedroom via French doors.

The kitchen/dining room is decorated with marble from the same mountains as Michaelagelo's David. There is a traditional stone sink, marble worktops, marble table, oven, a 4 ring gas hob as well as a fridge and pantry.

Area

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 Bodri' 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 18C spa resort of the Luchessi nobles, with its thermal baths, elegant villas and pretty surroundings.

The villa is situated in the village of Coreglia Antelminelli. There's a well stocked grocery store and a couple of restaurants in the village.

In Piano di Coreglia, at the bottom of the hill, 10 minutes away, there are a couple of restaurants and cafes and shops. The next town Ghivizzano are more restaurants, cafes and shops as well as a supermarket and a train station that links you to Lucca and Pisa.

Fornaci di Barga is only 20 minutes drive away and there are lots of restaurants, shops, cafes and a couple of supermarkets here too.

The villa is very well situated to experience Tuscan village life whilst being well connected to larger towns and cities.

We can help arrange mountain biking, hill walking, horse riding, gorge walking, art classes and cooking classes which are all available locally.

Heavenly Villa!

By LaWanda W on 19-Sep-2020

Words cannot describe the beauty of this villa and it''s surroundings. The view from the north room was spectacular with french doors that opened to reveal an immaculate swimming pool, the mountains in the distance, and the local residents hanging out their laundry and singing to the radio each morning. The villa has the best of modern plumbing and kitchen fixtures (unlike many old buildings in Europe), with the best of the rustic which gives you the feel of living like a prince or princess centuries ago. The pictures on the site do not do it justice. There are a few things to consider if traveling with couples. The first floor of the villa is what you are renting which consists of two bedrooms with bathrooms, two sitting or living rooms and a kitchen. All rooms are connected by a door but you will need to go outside to go from the north bedroom to the kitchen or sitting rooms without disturbing anyone in the middle bedroom. This was not a problem for us but something to consider depending on your travel companions. This villa is situated far north of other Tuscan sights. We took two days and traveled to Venice and a day in Cortona and a day in Florence. If we had it to do over again we would have spent 4 nights at the Villa in order to travel to Cinque Terre and Lucca and then possibly a villa in Florence to take in the sights there and Cortona-Siena. I will say that the most enjoyable day that we spent was the day devoted to Coreglia Antelminelli. The restaurant L''Arcile was wonderful as were both of the bars. When you see bar in Italy, think Starbucks with alcohol.

In een woord Fantastisch!

Geweldige plek, heel behulpzame en aardige eigenaren, mooi rustig, supermooie tuin met zwembad en fantastisch uitzicht! In een klein oud stadje waar bijna geen toeristen zijn, prachtige oude villa! Ook de omgeving is prachtig! Het ligt wat hoger dus het koelt ''s nachts lekker af. Aanrader, wij komen terug!

The best stay you can imagine

By Esther en Henk Jansen on 07-Jun-2022

What an amazing house an garden is villa la Penna. We stayed here two weeks and we enjoyed it every minute. The apartment has a lot of space and the garden, pool and landscape are the best you can imagine. There is one small problem, the house is in an mediaval town and a normal car cannot reach the house. The owners of the house are so friendly and they help you with their small town car to bring over you r luggage and are always willing to help you out withe any problem.. We recommend this house with the best rating possible. We had a small dog with us and he could walk around te garden as he liked. We will surely return one day to enjoy this peaceful house again
