La Rocca is a unique villa, built within the ramparts of an 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 in the centre 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.
The ancient walled town of Coreglia is difficult for vehicles to access so the peaceful village is very safe for children to explore, enjoying the freedom that children seldom have nowadays. 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 private pool. Free Wi-Fi connection is available in the house.
There are several different areas in the large garden to eat and relax. During summer a pool is in place, for cooling off or for kids to play in.
There is a peaceful summerhouse in the garden with cooking facilities.
Guests can help themselves to seasonal produce available in the organic garden.

Coreglia is an ancient hill town, voted some years ago to be one of the nicest villages in Italy. The streets are traffic free, making it safe for children to explore. Recently the village featured in the BBC programme 'Who do you think you are' which traced the actress Susan Sarandon's family to Coreglia. The village was famous in the 19C for its beautifully crafted figurines, and there is an interesting museum dedicated to the art. In 2005 Coreglia was voted as one of the nicest villages in Italy
