About the property

3 Bedroom Villa in Barga, - Peaceful Location, 2 mins walk to Old Barga

Al Sasso occupies a prime position in the historical Tuscan hillside town of Barga. It offers a large secluded terrace and sunny mature gardens in a quiet cul de sac. A few minutes walk from the medieval 'old town' where the impressive 'Duomo' sits imperiously astride the hilltop. Shops and local restaurants are only a short stroll away. Barga itself boasts a beautiful open air pool (early June until early September) and tennis courts and is an ideal base for exploring the Garfagnana, the historic walled town of Lucca and the coastal resorts on the Tuscan Riviera.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mrs Irons - ‘Fantastic holiday, house is very spacious; the terrace with its views is stunning and is situated off the kitchen so ideal for fresco eating (pictures do not do house justice). Barga is ideally located to explore the Garfagnana and has many treasures of its own’.

Venables - We had a fabulous holiday and the house was so much more than we expected! Such a beautiful house in a very beautiful area. The house was very well supplied and we wanted for nothing.The view from the terrace was amazing.

Strachan - We had a really really great time in Barga and at the house. The house was fantastic, so much more than we had imagined! The terrace with those views was just wonderful - we pretty much spent morning till night out there!

The house is beautiful - I can totally see why you would want to keep it and location wise within Barga it is perfect, so quiet but just a short walk into town.

Lovely traditional Italian house with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

This is a much larger property than we expected. It is spacious, traditional, nicely furnished and has amazing views from the balcony. It is so clean and the owner was so helpful. I cannot recommend this property highly enough.

Wonderful Views and lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous views of the Duomo and surrounding hills from a very spacious patio at the rear of the house. Great views also from the little garden opposite the house.

Patio has plenty of new chairs and a large umbrella for shade.

Parking space for two cars although getting in and out is a bit tricky.

Kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of glasses, china, dishes. Spare glasses are available in the dining room.

Toaster, Espresso/Cappuccino machine are available.

Interior of the house is very spacious with very comfortable chairs in the living room.

Bedrooms are spacious with plenty of hanging space and drawers. Bed linens are high quality and very large bath towels are provided. Beds fairly comfortable.

The downstairs bedrooms share a large bathroom with shower. Upstairs bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom with bath/shower combination.

Location is great for walking into the old town where there are many good restaurants. Also it’s a nice walk down to the Alpino, in the new town.

Overall experience very relaxing, we enjoyed our two week stay very much.

Overall, Via Sasso is a very nice place and we would recommend it to anyone.

A Better Property would not have been possible

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Anthony's villa. Although only 3 bedroom it felt like a castle with all the space in it. The rooms are a great size for having guests round and entertaining . We even managed a game of table tennis in his games room in the basement. When back in Barga we will definitely look to book here again.

Beautiful home in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa in a great location for exploring Barga and the surrounding areas. It's less than five minutes walk to the old town but tucked away down a peaceful street. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable and have everything you need.

The outdoor seating areas around the villa catch the sun all day, although the large terrace with views out over the landscape is the best place to relax. We'll definitely be back!

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few weeks in this lovely home. The location is ideal - a few minutes walk from the restaurants and shops in Barga yet on a tranquil street with a picturesque view. The house is spacious with modern bathrooms and great showers. While there is a train station in Barga, we had a car and drove to Lucca to catch the train to Floremce and other cities. The wi-fi worked well with a strong connection. We hope to return to beautiful Barga and stay here again.
