Featuring a lovely garden with sun terraces and a hot tub overlooking the Apuan Alps, the property combines the best of both worlds: living in the real Italy, but with easy access to major tourist attractions for days out.
The villa can be used as a wonderful holiday home with great private space for friends and family, or a perfect place to retire with a steady extra income.
The turn of the century villa has recently been sympathetically restored, with all amenities modernised.
An impressive entrance hall with original Tessieri tiles leads to a sweeping stone staircase, and a kitchen and sitting room open onto balconies with views.
There is also a dining room, a library and a guest bathroom on the ground floor.
On the mezzanine is a second bathroom with bath and shower, and upstairs the main bedroom with elegant en-suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and a cosy sitting room with log fire and French doors opening onto the front balcony.
The adjoining cottage has, on the ground floor, a characterful renovated two bedroom apartment with log burner and a romantic new one bedroom apartment in the former stables on the garden level, with separate entrance. The cellars of the villa have recently been converted into a spacious two bedroom, two bathroom apartment, with underfloor heating and a large open-plan living area with original features and the villa’s retro 1970s kitchen, opening onto a large terrace.
The accommodation is flexible. The three apartments are established, self-contained, holiday lets, but the spacious basement apartment can also be used as part of the villa and is perfect for summer entertaining.
Coreglia Antelminelli is officially one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, one of the ‘Borghi Piu Belli d’Italia’, set in the mid Serchio Valley against a backdrop of the Appenines behind, looking across to the Apuan Alps. All daily amenities are here: bars and restaurants, grocery stores, hairdressers and a very good local butcher. You can wander up into the medieval village for a coffee and pastry in the morning, or an aperitivo later.
Known for the purity of its air and surrounded by chestnut forests with tracks, hiking trails and streams, Coreglia Antelminelli is a paradise for walking, hiking, cycling, canyoning and even river rafting. There is also a wealth of ‘slow food’ restaurants and organic products.
There are many pretty towns and villages, beauty spots and tourist attractions to explore in the surrounding mountains and valleys.
Only 20 minutes away is busy Barga, and Bagni di Lucca, with its thermal baths, made famous as the summer residence of Napoleon and his sister, Elisa.
The beautiful walled city of Lucca, with its famous summer music festival, is 40 minutes by car or a pleasant half-hour train ride from the nearby station.
Pisa, its airport and the beautiful beaches of the Tuscan riviera are just over an hour away, as are the ski slopes of Abetone. Florence can be reached in 90 minutes.
