Treat yourselves! Treat yourselves to a stay at this wonderful newly refurbished Villa, which has been renovated, furnished and equipped with quality and care to give a truly relaxing holiday! The Villa has been renovated by the owner with his own holidays in mind, so a great deal of thought has gone into the preparation of this luxurious house, which has been designed to take full advantage of the unrivalled views of Barga seen from the house, gardens and pool. Home from home, there is quality furniture, lots of equipment and plenty of storage. Casa Roc has been fully modernised, but has not lost its rustic charm, with wood floors, beamed ceilings and character features throughout, blending seamlessly with modern comforts! There is a real feel of romance, and whilst great for families, the house is ideal for honeymoons. The property is just a 300/400M walk from a bar, basic shop and a restaurant, and a half hour stroll into Barga cross country. There are 3 bedrooms, each with their own luxury bathroom (2 fully en-suite), a welcoming open plan living/diner, and a designer kitchen. Each of the living areas, and the bedrooms overlook the garden, pool and the view of Barga with the mountains beyond. There are lots of large windows providing a fantastic light and airy space to relax. Outside, there is quality outdoor relaxing and dining furniture, with plenty of shade provided by the canopy which covers the outdoor living area, and an enormous umbrella for dining al fresco in comfort.The pool is brand new, and is fully surrounded by sunbathing terraces from which one can relax and enjoy the countryside and the views. Fuller details/layout: Living/dining room: Enter property via double doors into the open plan living diner with comfy seating, flat screen SAT TV, DVD, Blue Ray, WIFI, play station, Wii, ipod dock and fireplace. Plenty of dining for 6. Kitchen: Also on the ground floor is a designer kitchen again with double doors leading outside to outdoor living area, fully equipped with oven, 5 ring hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee machine and dishwasher. The washing machine is found in the laundry room which also houses a tumble dryer and an additional fridge for drinks. Ground floor bedroom/bathroom: The ground floor houses bathroom number 3 (with large shower cubicle) and the ground floor single bedroom, which also has a pull out bed to accommodate a further child. First floor: From the living room, stairs lead to the first floor (note that a handrail is in place for Summer 2014) . Master Bedroom – spacious room with door opening to Juliet balcony so one can enjoy the views from bed . Truly romantic! TV with DVD player and PSP2. The bedroom leads to a dressing /study area, and through to a luxury en-suite with bath tub and separate shower. Double bedroom – a further beautiful double room, with luxury en-suite with large shower. Hairdryer provided. Outside: Fully fenced and gated garden with outstanding unrivalled views. Covered living area leading from kitchen, with comfy seating for al fresco relaxing. Outdoor dining facilities. BBQ. Private pool – fully surrounded with tiled sunbathing area. Pool (lit at night) is 10M x 5M with internal steps. Pool towels provided. Parking for 2 vehicles. A little about location: Situated in Albiano, with stunning views of Barga, and the mountains beyond, this property is a perfect retreat, less than a 5 minute drive from the Mediaeval town of Barga, with its hilly windy cobbled streets, duomos, 10th Century cathedral and ancient architecture. Barga is also renowned in the area for its good quality, but reasonably priced restaurants. There are often outdoor concerts/plays performed many times free of charge with performances ranging from Rock and Pop, to Jazz and the Classics. Within easy walking distance, is the village of Albiano with its good restaurant, and local shop/bar. Barga itself is circa 1 hour 15 mins from Pisa, 1 hr 40 mins from Florence;50 minutes from the beautiful walled mediaeval city of Lucca and close to the National Parks of the Apuane Alps. Hilltop villages abound, and exploring can be either townie or totally rural - the choice is yours, if you can tear yourselves away from the house! More

Albiano is a village in the Garfagnana region of northern Tuscany, very close to Barga, ‘the most Scottish town in Italy’. Both are a slightly off the tourist track, with most visitors to the area having some ancestral connection with it. This is a pity,...More
