“A wonderful fortnight of beauty and tranquility”
Reviewed September 20, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The house was well-maintained and clean and the gardens and pool were immaculate. The owner, Simonetta, was attentive and very friendly. She ensured that we understood the local area and we had her number if anything extra was needed(which it wasn't). Simonetta and her husband Marco even hosted a pizza evening using the pizza oven on site. It was a unique experience and in many ways the favourite part of our stay.

The house itself is historic and positioned on the side of the rugged hills surrounding Barga and it provided amazing views of the valley and the hills opposite. This gave a fantastic feeling of peace and tranquillity.

The swimming pool garden was the signature of the property as it is elevated above/behind the house and was a lovely area to relax and enjoy the lovely pool and the weather, which was mainly hot and sunny with just a couple of days of cloud. Needless to say our young children remained around the pool for days on end and this was no hardship for us!

Barga itself is a very pleasant town and was a ten-minute drive down the hills. There were a number of really good small towns within easy reach and Lucca was magnificent, although an hour away.

A number of our friends are already wanting to book this house on the strength of our photos alone!
