Firstly the staff at Villa Moorings are exceptional and make you feel very welcome. As well as always having a smile and being good humoured, they went out of their way to be helpful and take time to talk to their guests. The villa is a beautiful example of a property built in the 1920s and has an interesting history to it, partly mentioned on their own website and partly continued by members of the original family owners. Inside are very high ceiliings some of which are beautifully painted, lots of original furnishings and lovely outdoor swimming pool area. Our bedroom did not have air conditioning and it was unseasonally hot when we we there. Perhaps AC shouldn't be expected in a building of this era but more efficient fans would be welcomed. Although the immediate outlook is somewhat out of context with the original surroundings of the villa, we had wonderful mountain views from our well appointed, clean and tidy second floor bedroom. Breakfasts were very enjoyable and constantly checked &replenished. It could be takern indoors or out on the terrace. It is a 10 minute walk to the beautiful town of Barga. However there are quite steep steps to get to the highest point of the town. If you only manage to do so once, you musttry to do so, as it has a lovely feel to it and many good restaurants. There are at least a couple of restaurants, if not more, easily accessible without having to go upwards! We hired a car and visited some lovely Cities, towns & villages, some of which were off the beaten track although nowhere was spoiled by tourism. We would certainly recommend this accommodation and exploration of the lovely small town of Barga and surrounding areas.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Amazing early 1900 villa in the gorgeous ancient town of Barga. The staff is amazing as are the grounds, pool, breakfast, rooms, and balconies are stunning. The staff washed our baby clothes every day to help us with our long trip. The villa's tower is the best lookout point in that stunning region of Lucca. The owner offered to help with geneology as well. Just superb. We are going back! ... more less
