Villa Gina has been renovated to the highest standard. On the edge of Sommocolonia, a historic and picturesque village just a short drive from Barga, the villa provides comfortable and generous accommodation. It has six double bedrooms (with new beds & mattresses), modern facilities (including three bathrooms) and a beautiful contemporary kitchen, with a large dining table for up to twelve people. The living room seats fourteen easily, and the flexible seating allows you to create two separate areas if required. Both the kitchen and living room have large french windows which open out onto the front garden with its outdoor eating area and its breathtaking views down the valley to the beautiful historic town of Barga.
Further Details: Villa Gina is ideal for large groups of family or friends, and for two families. With three bedrooms on each floor, and three bath/shower rooms all together, the Villa provides very flexible accommodation.
The villa has a second living room and balcony on the top floor. This living room includes a traditional Tuscan fireplace, a table and four chairs plus a comfortable sofa to enjoy a moment or two away from the main communal areas. The balcony provides a beautiful sitting-out area - ideal for relaxing with a book during the day, enjoying a pre-dinner drink, or simply for chatting with like-minded people - and provides a stunning backdrop with spectacular views of mountains and the valley below.
Villa Gina has large gardens arranged on two levels, well-separated from the parking area (on a third level). The gardens showcase from some of the best views in the area. These provide a stunning backdrop to inside/outside living, allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds. There is a combination of outside table and chairs and sun-loungers to accommodate twelve people. Ideal for sun-lounging, sitting in the shade, eating al fresco and playing, there is even a hammock for those who want to enjoy the gentle swaying in the breeze in the shade of the trees.
