friendly Bed and Breakfast with great view over medieval town of Barga and on the Apuan Alps. 2 of the 3 units (Bellavista & Tavernetta) have a kitchenette, thus allowing self-catering arrangements. The other unit (Panoramica) has no kitchenette but has a fantastic view! All three units are independent from the main house, have own terrace, own access, etc.

You have found the most amazing little bed and breakfast with probably the nicest hosts in all of Europe! The rooms are clean, fresh and fully equipped with anyhting one could need and the view from the house is just stunning. Pietro and Marijke introduced us to authentic Tuscan culture and we got to experience so much during the week,...

I cannot gush enough about this place. I sat for hours just staring at the stunning view from our terrace. I couldn't get enough. Our hosts were such wonderful people. Their hospitality was overflowing. When we arrived late and hadn't eaten all day, the hosts invited us to have dinner with them. They were almost apologetic that it was a...

The hosts are incredible. I cannot say enough about this couple and their beautiful home. The location is fantastic-a short walk from the small town of Barga. The hospitality and the experiences they provided my mother and I are ones that we will never forget. Stunning views and hospitality/accommodations with equal quality.

Management response:

thank you Ashley and Susan for these fine words. We enjoyed having you here! pietro

About the neighborhood
'La Serra' is 1.5 km from the center of the medieval town of Barga. It is only a 20 minutes scenic walk away, on a small paved road with no traffic. Of course it is also possible to reach us by car (safe parking). 'La Serra' is located amongst olive groves, at an altitude of 400 m asl, with a great view onto the Apuan Alps and the Duomo di Barga. The area is a perfect spot for gentle walks on the rural country roads of Garfagnana, as well as for more strenous hikes in the surrounding mountains (up to 2000 m asl). Favourite hikes are Monte Forato (the Mountain with a hole), Orrido di Botri (a gorge where you walk partly on a trail and partly in a mountain stream), Pania della Croce (views on the Carrara marble quarries), Monte Giovo, Monte Procinto , and many more. The Grott... more
