“This is an ideal villa for those wishing to experience the authentic life in the mountains of Tuscany.”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The Villa Trivium is about 2.4 miles up the mountain from Barga. The accommodations were very comfortable, and the views of the Serchio Valley, Barga, and the mountains were breath taking. The villa can accommodate 5-6 people. The two large bedrooms have ample space for possessions. There are beautifully crafted bathrooms in each bedroom, plus an additional half bathroom in the wash room downstairs. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking: coffee machine, toaster, microwave, etc. There is also a BBQ on one of two patios. Patios and lawn space are furnished with chairs, a table and sun-loungers.The gardens are beautifully adorned with all types of flowers, trees, and shrubs. The villa has been renovated, but the integrity of the former structure has not been lost. A washing machine, iron, and all cleaning tools are present. Clothes are hung on outside lines. On Saturdays, sheets, towels, and other linen can be left for washing by the owners. Wi-fi and a television are included. Heat is provided by a wood burning fireplace. There is ample wood to use at a fee. The common living area is furnished comfortably, sofa, soft chairs, etc. The owners were friendly and helpful. They were readily available if the need arose. There are ample footpaths in the area for the avid hiker. Lucca, Florence, and other smaller villages are in driving distance. Train and bus service are also in the area. The thing I liked the least was having to carry out all the garbage to the street and having to sort it into four bins there, rather than having separate cans in the kitchen.

We have been to Italy 4 times in 5 years and each time spend at least some of our holiday at Il Trebbio. The accommodation, the view, the Barga community and the helpful assistance of Diego and his family are an integral part of what we love about Italy. Absolutely recommended!!!

So sorry for Internet service but unfortunatley that week we had some problems with our access point...we needed to change it! We learned the lesson...now there's a spare one already setted available in the villa, if the main one go down it's enough to switch one the second one.

“Tuscan gem!”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had two glorious weeks staying at Il Trivium, a villa next door to Il Trebbio. The villa itself is fantastic with 2 ensuite bedrooms on the first floor, and a service bathroom on the ground floor (a separate third bedroom is available if required although we didn't see this), together with a small well equipped kitchen & a small living area. But to be honest we spent most of our time sitting outside on the lovely sun terrace with spectacular views across to Barga & the rest of the Serchio Valley, and cooking on the BBQ. The villa has been restored and converted beautifully and was immaculately clean on arrival. A car is recommended, although you can just about walk to Albiano (the walk back up in the heat is a challenge!) where there is a small shop selling the basics & some local produce, plus a restaurant which does wonderful pizzas at the weekend. The local swimming pool is there too (fee paying), with a small bar/cafe, which again has spectacular views across the valley. Barga is a 10 minute drive down a narrow winding road. This is a remarkably untouristy small medieval walled town, where we met the local artist in residence, who painted an iconic view of Barga some 40 years ago! Florence, Pisa & Siena are within driving distance but we found were quite exhausting to do in a day. Then there is the host family, the Dstrinas, very welcoming and there to give you assistance (& a chat) if required. Thank you again Angelo for the delicious home grown vegetables, we managed to bring some of the tomatoes home!

“Exceptional”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our group of 4 adults and 2 children stayed at "Il Trebbio" for the first two weeks of August. Everything was picture perfect, starting of course with the amazing view of Barga across the hill, the beautiful terrace and the very well equipped house.
We had everything we needed and the owners did everything to make us feel welcome. We found a bottle of wine and a bag of Cantucci as welcome present and we have to say that the wine was exceptional - coming from their own production, also!
The bedrooms were large and so was the bathroom, nicely decorated.
we wish we could be back!
