Barga, Province of Lucca, Tuscany
Classic Tuscan villa in the gracious hill town of Barga, a lively center of the arts with celebrated jazz and opera festivals, extraordinary restaurants, cafes and shops. The villa is set in a private compound, surrounded by an enormous terrace and walled garden planted in grapes, herbs, olives and fruit trees, with stunning views over the Lucca countryside and the marble Apuan Alps.

We are missing the church...

Great place to stay - difficult to pull yourself away from the terrace and the view, but when you do you are rewarded with a vibrant town with plenty of places to eat & lots to see. Barga is within striking distance of Lucca and Pisa and surrounded by beautiful countryside. The house is well appointed and comfortable and it...

This lovely house close to Barga's beautiful and historically significant duomo is the perfect place from which to explore Barga and surrounds. Just a few minutes walk to the main piazzas where there are many fine restaurants, galleries, an antique shop, an outstanding gelato bar and a very chic boutique, the house also boasts stunning views of the Tuscan countryside...

How to get there
Airport: Pisa: 43.5 mi
Railway: Barga-Gallicano: 2.5 mi
Ferry: Livorno: 62.1 mi
Nearly equidistant from the airports of both Pisa and Florence.
A car is great for exploring the area but public transport is also fine. The bus service operates in Barga and the train station is a short bus or taxi ride away.
The drive from Pisa is not difficult. It takes just over an hour using the autostrada to Lucca and then the normal road along the Serchio valley. If you plan to explore the back roads an automatic car makes it easier.
