This home in Barga was all that we hoped for. Very large, well furnished, classy, with a historic Tuscan feel and atmosphere to the place. It's topped off by the large, beautiful wrap-around terrace that sits overlooking this wonderful thousand year old Tuscan hill town. Barga itself is a wonderful, hidden gem: fun, friendly, picturesque beyond belief. It has a slow feel for relaxing but plenty of good restaurants, bars, cafes, and ice cream shops. Barga is a good location for day trips to Pisa, Florence, Lucca, and the beach. Love this place. We will be back!

We had a wonderful stay here. The location couldn't have been better - right in the heart of the historic part of Barga, close to the bars and restaurants. The house is at the top of the town, near the beautiful Duomo, and has a huge terrace that looks out over the rooftops and out to the hills and mountains in the distance - truly stunning, a perfect spot for many an al fresco meal. The house was very well equipped and comfortable and the owner was very welcoming and helpful with lots of tips on where to go and what to do. There is a very nice public pool nearby if you need a swim, and we also did a trip to the coast, which wasn't too far at all. But there is so much more to do here - walks, visiting picturesque villages, lakes, fortresses, adventure parks, nature reserves, it's even close enough to do a day trip to Florence. We definitely intend to return!
