“Wow, glad I didn't let the review from those people from Scotland sway me, I would have missed a great place!!”
Rita and her partner Alex and family run a really great operation with wonderful apartments and the restaurant. This is very clean and economical place to stay. Great beds and comfy pillows and linens, spectacular views across the valley, and the kitchen is stocked well for an extended stay. But have dinner in their restaurant, the food is equal to some of the finest in Lucca which I had the pleasure of enjoying, but their prices are more reasonable and the portions generous The hospitality is superb. The train from Lucca runs up the Sercchio valley and stops at all the significant towns. Buses connect to the hiltowns so you can really get around without a car, but having one takes you to some other places outside of the towns. Their place is a short 5 blocks from the Train station and slightly uphill as is the case in this region, but is doable with roller luggage or a backpack, there is always a Taxi at the station if you prefer not to deal with baggage. The public bus, a block away, runs up to Barga and return and this is the best way to get there rather than a car and deal with parking.. I am a seasoned traveler and this was my 5th trip to Italy and I highly recommend this place. The people from Scotland's review comes from obviously unseasoned tourists sounding like they expected a full service hotel, these are self catering apartments and two ensuite B & B's that are just great places.
