About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Private 2 depth Pool And Large Mature Gardens! Wifi.

Villa Alva, is a beautiful spacious, elegant, light and airy property, with private pool, situated within walking distance of the town of Barga with its well regarded restaurants, beautiful architecture, amazing views, local art and music!

This 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom property has panoramic views over the mountains and good sized swimming pool.

The Villa is spread over 3 floors, with the main villa on floors 1 and 2, and an interconnecting one bedroom apartment on the ground floor. The apartment is fully independent with personal access, and eating area, but interconnects internally, with the main Villa as required. Ideal for a family and a couple wanting together time and separate space too ....

Also, if one needs to use the sofa bed one does so in the second living room (which is in the apartment) leaving the main living room free....Even when using the sofa bed there is plenty of living area in both parts of the house.

The apartment is fully furnished, with an open plan style kitchen/diner/living all connected by arches, with direct access to the courtyard and garden. There is also a comfortable double bedroom and good size shower room.

The Villa itself is very spacious, and is a well loved, well kept property, previously used as a family home.....

In the main villa on the second floor there are 3 further bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms (one with a tub), with the first floor boasting a large entrance/living hall with wood burning stove, comfortable and ample living room with open fire, spacious and well equipped kitchen/diner leading to the garden.

The mature beautiful garden is fully enclosed, and flat, and boasts a large private swimming pool with views over the mountains, covered gazebo for dining al fresco and of course a BBQ!

A wonderful place for a relaxing holiday, all within easy reach of the facilities of Barga!

A wonderful holiday spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The views, the pool... We had two babies with us and the hosts provided cots and highchairs. The other 4 children spent most of their time in the pool... Magnificent. We spent most of our time outside the house actually: Either dining under the Gazebo or by/in the pool. Even got to roast some local sourced pork in the wood burning oven.

Because of its location, even though August is an uncomfortably hot, the nights are cool and the days just warm enough.

Then there is Barga, a gorgeous medieval town with outstanding restaurants, beautiful architecture..., The house is also within easy reach of Luca and Pisa for our day trips. And the Tuscan wine....

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a wonderful time and that the children in particular loved the garden and pool. I agree it is great to holiday somewhere where it is beautifully warm during the day, but where sleeping is easy due to the lovely cool nights... We hope you come to the area again. Lorraine at

Situated just a 15/20 min walk from the centre of the town of Barga, with its hilly windy cobbled streets, duomos, 10th Century cathedral and ancient architecture. Barga is also renowned in the area for its good quality, but reasonably priced restaurants. There are often outdoor concerts/plays performed many times free of charge, and during the festas the town often puts on wonderful firework displays.

There is also a station for stress free exploring.

Closer to home, and within easy walking distance is a bar/restaurant/pizzeria with plenty more in town.

Barga itself is circa 1 hour from Pisa, 1 hr 30 mins from Florence; 45 minutes from the walled mediaeval city of Lucca and close to the National Parks of the Apuane Alps. Hilltop villages abound, and exploring can be either townie or totally rural - the choice is yours!
