This villa is a  wonderful newly refurbished 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom Villa, which has been renovated, and equipped with quality and care to give a truly relaxing holiday!

New photos will be provided in 2020 showing fully finished outdoor areas which will include the relaxing area, and also the sunbathing area equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas.

The property has been designed to take full advantage of the wonderful views of Barga and the mountains beyond, seen from the house, gardens and private solar heated pool. 

This gorgeous house has been fully modernised, but has not lost its rustic charm, with traditional cotto floors,  beamed ceilings, barn style windows in some rooms,  and character features throughout. This all blends seamlessly with the modern comforts of brand new fully equipped kitchen, and the new bathrooms....

The property is just a stone's throw from a bar, a popular restaurant, and only a 5 minute drive from the  wonderful mediaeval town of Barga, which is known for its great food, music, art and stunning views. 

There are 3 bedrooms, and 4 bathrooms, 2 of which are en-suite . One of the bathrooms has the benefit of a bath tub.

There is a welcoming open plan living/diner with fireplace, TV, WIFI , and a brand new fully equipped modern kitchen. Each of the living areas has doors leading out to the terrace, making the most of the amazing views. 

Outside, there is a covered loggia area leading from the kitchen, for al fresco dining with a mountain backdrop.

There is a further pergola area providing shade to the side of the house, and also there will be a gazebo by the pool with furniture for relaxing.

The pool is brand new, and is 10M x 5M . It is fully surrounded by sunbathing terraces from which one can relax and enjoy the countryside and the views, and there are lights for nocturnal swims. The pool is heated via solar panels.
There is even underfloor heating provided free of charge when needed, which is ideal for the cooler mornings or evenings outside of season.
The owners have thought of it all!

A Little about the area:
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.

The property is within a stone's throw of a good restaurant, and basic local shop/bar, which is a rare advantage in this rural area.

Places to visit:

  • Barga - gorgeous mediaeval town - 5 mins
  • Castelnuovo - local market town - 15 mins 
  • Lucca - beautiful fully walled mediaeval city, the birthplace of Puccini - 50 mins 
  • Verrucole - 35 mins - local fortress with stunning views and interactive tour/museum good for children
  • Adventure park Levegliese - 25 mins - rock climbing, river canyoning, canoeing and some zip wires. 
  • Buffardello park - 30 mins - zip wire and tree climbing adventure park. Ideal forsmall children, right up to the most adventurous of adults - many different courses to choose from.
  • Grotta del Vento - 30 mins - massive wind cave system and tours
  • Pisa - 1 hr 15 mins
  • Florence 1 hr 40 mins
  • The coast - the Versilian coast is a 1 hr 20 min drive away either via motorway, or via the stunning Apuane mountains
  • Strada del Vino - 50 mins - wine roads of Lucca 
  • National Park of Orecchiella - 45 mins

 
These are just some suggestions since 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 and the pool area.
 
NB - final part of access is via a narrow road. Access is passable even with a large car, with care. If guests have concerns, car can be left in village car park 100M away. 
NB - changeover day in high season is Friday for this property.
