3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Barga, Province of Lucca, Tuscany
Villa Speranza. This luxurious apartment is on two floors and situated in a villa which dates from the 16th century and was once one of the old convents of Barga. The building stands just below the Duomo (cathedral) and was extensively restored in 2000-2001. The location of Villa Speranza on the walled perimeter of the ancient centro storico (Old Town) is ideal in that it provides tranquil atmosphere and stunning views over the surrounding hills while all the facilities of the town are within strolling distance. <BR><BR>The apartment is very spacious and luxurious with a flexible configuration. It can be rented either with 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, or for smaller parties, with two double bedrooms and one bathroom. The property is superbly equipped with every comfort.<BR><BR>The owners offer an optional p... Read more

This villa was a wonderful location in the old town of Barga, able to walk easily to wonderful restaurants, the duomo, and the old town. There was plenty of room for 3 people (myself, my husband, and my mom), the views were wonderful, and it is very modern inside. Tony and Carla went out of their way to be gracious...

We arrived the day before Christmas Eve and were pleased to see how spacious and modern this apartment is. It is set over 2 levels and can be either 2 or 3 bedrooms. The living area downstairs is very large and leads out to the cobblestone streets of Barga. The upstairs bedrooms have gorgeous views of the surrounding Tuscan hills...

Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. I am sure it will be helpful for others considering Barga. However, if there is a next time, which we hope there will be, you willl come in the summer months which are so much more enjoyable than the depths of winter -a stark contrast to your Australian summer. with our best...

Although we had never been to this area or even heard of Barga, we rented Villa Speranza for a week's vacation for two grandparents in their 70s, two adult children, and three preteen grandchildren. I was worried about the choice, but I was reassured almost immediately after arriving. Anthony Wilton, the owner, met us at a Barga parking lot, led...

Additional amenities & feature info
The property has been restored to a high standard while maintaining its unique character and offers luxury with every modern convenience. The rooms are spacious and adorned with Tuscan paintings and some are furnished with fine antique furniture. The views over the surrounding hills are stupendous but the calm and peaceful traffic-free piazza fronting the villa is only 3 minutes walk from all the shops, restaurants and facilities of the town. The villa is warm in winter but cool in summer owing to its thick walls and the fact that Barga stands at an elevation of 440 metres (1300 feet).
