“Idyllic retreat nested up in the Tuscan mountains- a place where time slows down.”
Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Panoramic room, wake up to a stunning view overlooking the Tuscan mountains. Perfect size room for a couple or friends who want to spend a few days away from it all. Apartment felt fresh, clean and contemporary whilst the buildings reminded you of their agricultural roots.

The hosts were excellent and complimented each other perfectly. Charm, intellect, interest and passion.

If part of the experience for you is about tasting good and fresh ingredients, sourced locally (the "km zero" club) then look no further as this is something they both aspire to and is reflected in both food and conversation.

A place where time times slows down.

“Lovely location, excellent hosts, great views, good value.”
Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at La Serra in May. The countryside was blooming and so fragrant. Our hosts were helpful, the breakfasts excellent, the room clean and quiet equipped with everything needed to make it a home away from home, and the views magnificent. We were very pleased with La Serra and will likely stay there again.

“Charming, comfortable, relaxing... not enough superlatives to describe it well enough.”
Reviewed October 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

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 host and seemed to really understand how to treat guests, give us space when we needed it, and give us advice on interesting places to visit as needed. Barga is such a charming town set away from the main Tuscany throngs. If you are looking for a truly relaxing and leisurely vacation in a place that is not overly touristy and isn't overrun (yet) by us Americans, this is a great choice.

“The best ever Italy experience!”
Reviewed September 27, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

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, the view from our terrace overlooking Barga was magical, the food was wonderful (especially the local cheeses), and the rural setting gave us quiet nights and a convenient twenty-minute walk into the heart of the old city. Pietro is an excellent Italian language teacher, and he knows the local walking and hiking trails very well. We stayed at several other B&B's and monasteries in Tuscany, but Pietro and Marike provided us with our very best experience in Italy.

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!

“Breath taking views, warm and friendly hosts, great breakfast”
Reviewed September 18, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Spent a week here in the Tavernetta room, it was a little glimpse of heaven, ! Stunning views from our private terrace, could of stayed there all day in the sun just watching the changing weather patterns, lovely room, and the breakfast healthy and imaginative.
Barga was lovely old and quaint with some good restaurants, and icecream shops! Lucca only 40 minutes away, worth a visit too, Florence only a couple of hours on the train. Pietro was very well informed and was able to help us with planning our trips out and about. We walked into Barga in the evening using a path off the road, only 20 minutes, you need a torch on the way back! This is a great place to get away from the busyness of life and unwind and relax.

“Wish we were there right now!”
Reviewed September 6, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our stay was delightful, beginning with a warm welcome from Pietro and an impeccable view of Barga. Barga in itself is a quintessential Italian town, with lots of charm and character. The location of La Serra allowed us to 'getaway' from the busier neighbouring towns and relax in sun. A perfect stay if you're looking for tranquillity and good food.

The property has been well renovated and includes all the essentials to live comfortably during your stay. What was most impressive was the atmosphere and sense of 'home' that both Pietro and Marijkey created for us and their other guests. Unique.

“A little bit of paradise!”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This was our first trip to Barga and and though we would like to keep La Serra di Barga a secret we feel we should sing its praises from the rooftops!
Our week in Bellavista was over all too quickly and we never tired of soaking up its spectacular panoramic views or its cosy ambience.
Barga town is only a delightful walk away where delicious food and very drinkable wine is to be had!
However, as many other reviewers have said, the holiday was made complete by the loveliest hosts we have had anywhere :-)
Suffice to say we can't wait to return!
