    Additional Location Information
    "La Serra" is 1.5 km from the center of the medieval town of Barga. It is only a 20 minutes scenic walk away, on a small paved road with no traffic. Of course it is also possible to reach us by car (safe parking). "La Serra" is located amongst olive groves, at an altitude of 400 m asl, with a great view onto the Apuan Alps and the Duomo di Barga. The area is a perfect spot for gentle walks on the rural country roads of Garfagnana, as well as for more strenous hikes in the surrounding mountains (up to 2000 m asl). Favourite hikes are Monte Forato (the Mountain with a hole), Orrido di Botri (a gorge where you walk partly on a trail and partly in a mountain stream), Pania della Croce (views on the Carrara marble quarries), Monte Giovo, Monte Procinto , and many more. The Grotta del Vento (a cave with guided tours of up to 3 hours) is a separate special attraction. Although the easiest way to explore the area (small towns and ancient mountain villages, fortresses and me... more

Words cannot express the wonderful time we had in this charming bed and breakfast this summer. From the amazing breakfasts to the comfortable and well-appointed apartment, the place was BETTER than the photos (and how many times does that happen?). We did not have the pleasure of meeting Marijke since she was out of town, but Pietro was an amazing... more

This was our first trip to Italy. Barga was not familiar to us, but it and the surrounding region looked very appealing. We booked a full week at La Serra. Everything about our stay there was just perfect. Pietro and his wife Marike were wonderful and friendly hosts, our rooms in the Bellavista were clean, comfortable and with modern conveniences,... more

You've been wonderful guests, Steve, and I am so glad you could benefit from the BELCANTO festival in Barga, it was the first year it took place and it looks like it will become a tradition for early September from now on! And you've been a wonderful pupil, Galina! pietro more
