Coreglia Antelminelli cottage description

Spectacular panoramic views can be enjoyed from this homely country cottage.

You’re guaranteed peace and quiet at this stone cottage. And along with solitude and privacy comes a picture-perfect setting. Reached along a rough track through the woods above the village of Coreglia Antelminelli, Casa Manu gazes out over the steep slopes of the Apuan Alps.

Casa Manu is not just one stone-built cottage but two neighbouring ones. The second houses a spacious double room that makes a perfect nook for any of the party looking for an extra touch of privacy.

Inside, it’s rustic, simple and comfy with wood-beamed ceilings in the bedrooms, heavy wooden furniture and wood or tiled floors. The sitting room is in the main cottage and has an open fireplace. And the large, well-equipped kitchen and dining room is here, too, with an open stairway leading up to the first-floor bedrooms.

And along with this unpretentiousness there’s the luxury of a good-sized private swimming pool. Bordered by lavender, it’s perched on a spacious grassy terrace with mountain views and plenty of space for sun-loungers. The patio, meanwhile, with its stone table is under the shade of an evergreen oak, so it’s just the place for whiling away long summer evenings with a barbecue.

                      Coreglia is a beautiful hilltop town which was voted a few years ago as one of the nicest villages in Italy. In the 19C Coreglia was famous for its' plaster figurine makers and sellers, skilled local men who travelled all over the world selling hand made plaster figurines. An important museum in the village commemorates these traders. No traffic can access the streets of Coreglia, adding to the peace and quiet and evoking thoughts of bygone days.

                      There are 3 restaurants and several cafes in the village , and a fine camp site.

                      The town of Barga can be seen from the village and is a few kilometres away. Other notable towns nearby are Bagni di Lucca, Pietrasanta, and the coastal resort of Viareggio.

                      The provincial “art” city of Lucca is 25 minutes drive, or by the local train station. Florence is around 75 minutes drive.

                      Directions from Pisa to Lucca, then north towards Barga. Detailed directions and recommendations provided.
