I am just back from spending 5 days at La Vignola and it certainly exceeded my expectations! Situated a few miles outside of Barga on Strada per Castelvecchio it is definitely advisable to have a car to get about. La Vignola is a collection of about 5-6 apartments joined together amongst nice grounds in a very quiet location. There is a decent sized swimming pool with a shallow end and deep end making it suitable for all and sun loungers for lying around the pool. The apartment itself that I stayed in was fairly basic but a decent enough size, sleeping four people comfortably and was very clean. There was a gas hob and microwave for cooking but we didn't use them due to the many restaurants available in Barga that we wanted to try. A kettle and toaster may have come in handy. There were plenty of towels and bed linen available.
To check in you have to go to the Alpino Hotel in the centre of Barga first of all which wasn't overly clear on the website I booked the accommodation through as it just gave the address and not the hotel name. We were then met at the La Vignola apartments to be given the key and shown around. It is also necessary to check out and pay at the Alpino Hotel when leaving.
There is sufficient car parking space at La Vignola and it is a place I would recommend for families due to the fact that it has a pool and is on the whole reasonably priced! I would definitely stay here again if I return to Barga!
