About loretta nardini
My name is Loretta Nardini. My husband's name is Benito Casci. We lived in Scotland until 1985 when we returned to our homeland.
loretta nardini purchased this Farmhouse in 1995
Why loretta nardini chose Barga
Santa Maria was a working farmhouse until 1980 and was built by Benito's grandfather in 1931. We restored it over the years into a farmhouse with a swimming pool so that guests may enjoy this beautiful location.

Terrific views and gardens
Lovely views, great garden , very nice hosts. Although there is a half hour, quite steep walk through woods into Barga, it is slightly far off from the town centre to be walking up for dinner every night. But then, if you weren't in the location Santa Maria is in, you wouldn't get the fantastic views!
Spacious farmhouse, with great views. Kitchen a bit dark. Very good pool area. Walk to Barga either along the road for 500m or across a small stream.
Fantastic property in a great location that will surpass your expectations
Great Holiday. We stayed in Loretta and Benitto's wonderful house near Barga in the first week of July 2019. A wonderful property that will not disappoint in anyway. It is set in a fantastic location, with captivating mountain views. A short walk through the valley to the beautiful small town of Barga. The house is well equipped with multiple bathrooms, balconies (to escape of find the sun any time of day), generous sized bedrooms, well equipped kitchen...
There is a generous sized pool with fantastic views. The property has an enormous outdoor space to explore and watch the wildlife. Benitto and Loretta are nice people who respond quickly to any queries or requests. I cannot fault the property, the local area or Tuscany in anyway. Tip: avoid walking on the road to get to Barga by crossing the stream at the foot of the property to access a shortcut path to Barga).

Lovely stay outside beautiful Barga
We had a wonderful time during our stay in Barga. The house was perfect and the surroundings breathtaking. The houseowner was really helpful and generous. We were seven adults and a baby and we all enjoyed the stay so much. We can highly recommend this beautiful house in Tuscany!
The house & pool & views, and birdsong were all glorious.
We caught unseasonably cold damp weather which meant the pool was not used unfortunately. Will be lovely in the summer.
Fantastic location. Peaceful, beautiful and very relaxing.
We were lucky enough to be the only people staying for most of the week, which was fantastic for the children as we had the pool area to ourselves on the couple of days that we stayed by the pool.
We initially thought there was an issue with the fridge as it wasn't cooling items quick enough, but Loretta was lovely and came by the apartment very concerned. Loretta and her husband are easy to talk to and get along with.
We explored so much in the area and the easy to follow guide that Loretta sends you before you arrive, makes it so much easier to decide where to go.
The only downside was the apartment is in need of an upgrade, however Loretta did mention whilst we were there that they have plans to combine 2 of the apartments to make a much larger accommodation for families or friends. So when this is completed, this will be perfect for larger groups.
