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!

About the location:
Situated in 16 hectares of land, with wonderful views at every turn, this property is a perfect rural retreat, yet it is less than a 10 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, usually based on the classics/jazz, and during the festas the town often puts on wonderful firework displays.
There is also a train station for stress free exploring.
Closer to home, and within easy walking distance is the village of Albiano with its good restaurant, and local shop.
Barga itself is circa 1 hour from Pisa, 1 hr 30 mins from Florence; 45 minutes from the 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.
