My sister & I stayed at Casa Cordati (very close to old town entrance) this past September; the bus from Lucca drops you just outside the gate. The train stops some distance from town but was a prettier ride than the bus which also had a very slow transfer in a town not far from Lucca. Our room was on the second floor with no lift but the stairs were comfortable to climb; it was cozy with a very large bathroom and wonderful view of surrounding mountains. Breakfast was not included, but almost across the medieval lane was a gelateria with delicious pastries & cappucinos; equally delicious dinner was at Mordimi in the tiny piazza almost next door to hotel. Giordano Martinelli is the perfect host & speaks perfect English, but alas, no Spanish! He was gracious to take our luggage upstairs to our room and showed us his "casa" housing a gallery of his grandfather's beautiful paintings of which you can also buy prints. The price is right & when we go back to Barga, we will again stay here, where we felt exactly at home.
