Village house overview - owner's description
This charming early 18th century stone-built house is situated next to the church on the edge of the untouched beautiful, fortified medieval hilltop
The house has recently been lovingly restored to a very high standard and is tastefully furnished in the Tuscan style with exposed beams, terracotta tiles and stonework, but with every modern convenience.
The comfortable and stylish sitting room has double french doors which open out onto a well-maintained private garden which enjoys incredible views of the Appenine Alps, the backbone of Italy. There is an upper terrace with garden, furniture and barbecue, where many an al-fresco meal time can be pleasurably spent, sipping local wine and absorbing the magical atmosphere. The private heated swimming pool and terrace are perfectly situated for enjoying the beautiful views, and of course, sunbathing!
This is a very special property, from which you can enjoy the local amenities of the small town whilst still being secluded.
Bedroom 1 now has stunning French windows with views over the mountains and valley.
Bedroom 2 consists of bunk-beds rather than individual twin beds.

3 out of 4 people recommend staying here
We enjoyed our stay in lovely mountainy Coreglia Antelminelli. The Casina was nicely presented and we had excellent service from the housekeeper etc.
The main drawback for us was that it was too small to move around the kids room with the cot and the house was full of baby hazards. This probably should be stated in the advert and mentioned before booking.
The Casina would be suited to a couple or to a small family with primary school aged children. With this in mind it would be great if they would leave some kids videos and board games etc. for kids to use in the evenings or rainy/cold days.
The house has a funny layout because of its antiquity so the kitchen is very small and poky but the barbeque was a great plus because the qulity of produce in the village shops was excellent.
The best thing about the Casina was the amazing and unforgettable views from the rear of the house and the pool/garden.
The house was comfortable and very well equipped. The pool was great and warm for our two young children. Good linen and plenty of towels. The website description mentioned "bells" but not that the house was right next to the church so one hears them loud and clear! The village in which the house is situated is right at the top of a hill with an exceptionally narrow road with multiple twists and turns. Personally, we found the village far too remote and isolated and it was a hugh effort to do any excursions. We were never once contacted by any agent/house-keeper. The only time we got to speak to the agent was when the downstairs bathroom was flooding and a pipe has rusted and burst in the pool. All in all a comfortable house but too remote for what we were after (which to be fair, was our own fault). I would only recommend the house if you were happy to stay put and not venture out much.
lovely property,the view was spectacular & think you should make more of this in your description by showing some photos of it!
