There really aren’t words to fully convey how special our stay was in this house in Barga. First, just being in the town feels like you walked into a painting but then you get to stay in a home away from home, with a beautiful wrap around veranda, herb garden, full kitchen and eating area and three rooms, each with a beautiful view. The home is full of art, books about the local region (things we would not have found on our own), and all the touches that make a home a place where you feel comfortable and at peace. Several days we walked to the Barga alimentario to buy fresh cheese, pasta, bread, and procciouttio (wonderful experience of itself), then cooked at home and discussed all the amazing things we had seen that day and hatched our plans for the next day. The other days we went to Artistos in the center. Moussa and his daughter were a pleasure and explained everything to us and even left a bottle of local wine.
Our stay was magical and we can’t recommend this house enough!
The villa was precious and the view was amazing. However, getting there was quite scary! And the amenities were scarce. But the owners were delightful and gave us a bottle of wine and delicious cookies! I don't think I'd stay there again because of the scary drive.
