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.

Amazing place! Very homely, stunning views, everything we could have hoped for and more. We’ll definitely be back.
Great property in a lovely town
We had a great time in Barga. The villa is really big and on a quiet road. We were 4 adults and 2 small children and there was masses of space inside and outside for us all. It's also really well stocked with things for kids (high chair, plastic plates and cups etc) and with the basics (dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid etc) which made our trip really easy. It's only a short walk (less than 5 mins) into Barga old town and you can drive down easily to the new town for the supermarket etc. The chocolate and ice cream shop just down the road is highly recommended too! Only 2 things I would mention - it's got tiled floors so bring slippers! (we went in April) and we should have hired a smaller car as it was a bit tight in and out of the car parking but we managed it ok.
Lovely traditional Italian house with amazing views.
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.
Great house and location to stay in
Been in barga many times . But house and location great for old town barga .owners very welcome to any questions and requirements to your neads .will stay again
Wonderful Views and lots of space.
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
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.
