A little about the area:
The mediaeval town of Barga, is well known for its art, music, restaurants and great views.
There are hilly windy cobbled streets, little piazzas, gelaterias, art galleries and restaurants, all settled beneath, 10th Century cathedral complete with 'Duomo'.
There are often outdoor concerts/plays performed many times free of charge with performances ranging from Rock and Pop, to Jazz and the Classics and in the summer there are regular festas and 'markets under the stars'.
All this is a short walk from the property so the location really is ideal!
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.
A visit to Lucca is a must, with its fully intact walls which you can cycle around, gorgeous architecture, 99 churches (!), coffee bars, restaurants large piazza's & real Italian atmosphere. There are lots of cultural events, regular antiques markets, concerts, opera (there is a performance of operatic songs every evening) , and & of course the designer shops!
