VILLA WITH POOL - SPACIOUS AND AIRY FAMILY HOUSE, BARGA, SLEEPS MAX 14

Barga Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 bed self-catering property - Barga 2 km, gorgeous views, easy access & parking

This freshly refurbished property is minutes drive away from the charming medieval town of Barga, said to be one of Italy's top 20 most beautiful towns. There are no windy, narrow mountain roads to get to this house and there is plenty of parking for parking cars at the doorstep. Once you arrive you will be greeted by the spectacular views over the Garfagnana and all day sun over the garden where there is an eating area and gazebo by the salt water pool. For the cooler months the view can be enjoyed from our sunny hall with picture windows over the panorama.

All the rooms are individually decorated and new Italian furniture gives this apartment a modern, country feel. 3 rooms have luxurious king size beds, 2 rooms have two singles plus there is a high quality sofa bed in the second sitting room on the first and ground floors.

TV, DVD, iPod dock and open fire for winter months in sitting room, central heating, hair dryer, dishwasher, gas hob, freezer, dining area. Bespoke Italian fitted kitchen, shower and bath.

Distance to Barga: Villa Ulivi is approximately 3 minutes drive from Barga town, it is possible to walk to the town but it is not recommended as there is no footpath and the road has some blind bends. It is recommended to hire a car to explore this area anyway!

THIS IS A LARGE PROPERTY BUT SMALLER PARTIES ARE WELCOME TO RENT AND RATES CAN BE NEGOTIATED

Absolutely amazing house, with gorgeous views,

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my husband stayed here and were very impressed with the size of the house, there were three large bedrooms, also a sofa bed with its own area. So would also be great for larger groups. We were also extremely happy with how well the house was equipped and it was very modern and clean, always a great sign :) We arrived in September and the weather was mixed. So we enjoyed the pool and BBQ on hot days, and there was heating and a fire for the chillers days, where we would cosy up and watch some DVDs. The views from this property are out of this world, A total Wow factor!! From the sitting area just inside the door I would sit and watch the sun rise over the mountains in the morning, a little slice of heaven and a wonderful place to get away from the world :) If we fancied an day/evening out there are fantastic places to go and explore and the historic town of Barga is within walking distance. This house suited us perfect and would recommend this house to families and couples alike, the manager introduced herself and had told us to call her if we needed her, which we had no need to do. Wonderful wonderful place. 5 stars in my book :)

Beautiful Villa Ulivi

  • 5 of 5
We came to Barga for a wedding and we stayed in Villa Ulivi for 8 nights and we loved it!!

This is a truely fabulous house set in the most beautiful surroundings.

The house is beautifully furnished, clean and easily accommodated 8 people.
Outside there is a garden which is great for kids to explore and adults to have a quiet drink as the sun goes down over the mountains!!

Barga is a beautiful town and Villa Ulivi is an excellent place to have your base for exploring the town and the surrounding villages (Sommocolonia can be seen from the master bedroom window and it is just beautiful with an interesting history)

The people of Barga were very welcoming and a beer at Paolo Gas is definately recommended!

Rebecca, who owns the house, was extremely helpful and friendly and we are grateful to her for accommodating our last minute changes. She definately added to the pleasure of our stay. There is also local support if you have any problems which is very useful.

We are already planning our return and could not recommend Villa Ulivi and Rebecca more!

Thanks again
The Davidsons

Villa Ulivi

  • 5 of 5
we enjoyed our stay at Villa Ulivi very much. The flat is large, airy, elegantly furnished and well-equipped. The medieval town of Barga, with its lovely restaurants and bars, is only a 5 minute drive away. Villa Ulivi is also perfect for exploring the Garfagnana region of Tuscany, but it's also handy for Lucca, Pisa and Florence or the seaside. All in all a very pleasant experience. Recommended!

  • 5 of 5
I have recently returned form a stay in a superb apartment situated just outside of the pretty town of Barga.
The house itself was well equipped and very clean, the living space was perfect with a enterance offering some fantastic views over the mountains.
A very enjoyable stay and i have already reccommended the apartment to several of my friends and am considering returning to the house in the New Year.
Many thanks for a relaxing and stress free stay.
