We rented the Villa Alva in Barga for a week's family holiday for ages ranging from 2 to 80. The Villa, setting and Barga far exceeded our expectations. It is furnished, equipped and maintained to an exceptionally high standard. The property, extensive grounds with wonderful swimming pool are secured by electronic gates. The property representative was very helpful, knowledgeable, friendly always available by telephone.
My only concern is the lack of fencing around the pool and the lack of warning of sudden increase in water depth in the centre of the pool. Our 7year old grand-son, who was learning to swim, was caught unaware and as a result his confidence was dented.
Private transport is essential.
The riding school, situated within short walking distance is an added attraction.
I would strongly recommend Villa Alva. more
