Overview

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.

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.

Fantastic vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks in this villa and felt very much at home. It sits on a picturesque ridge bordered on both sides by a valley and a mountain range offering changing scenic views. The lane is very quiet and the neighbors are friendly with only a 2 minute walk to the village. The house and the garden are so spacious allowing for all to have their privacy.

All the items you need to cook and to eat are available. The showers are perfect,pressure and temperature wise. The wifi signal is strong. The flat screen TV is large and the reception is good with many channels. The washing machine works fine. The beds are firm and comfortable.

The owner is helpful and responsive. He does everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. In conclusion this is just a great place to vacation

Lovely, spacious house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely week in this spacious and comfortable house. It was clean, warm and well equipped, just as described. We felt as if we were staying in a welcoming family home rather than an anonymous holiday home.

There was plenty outdoor space to enjoy in a peaceful setting only a few minutes' walk from Barga old town.

The owner was very helpful, giving plenty of information and dealing with all queries promptly and in a friendly way.

Barga is a lovely small town in stunning countryside and is well worth a visit. We would definitely recommend both the house and the area for a family holiday.

Wonderful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific home to enjoy your holiday in the Barga area, the terrace is fantastic with stunning views of the countryside & also for alfresco dining. The home is very comfortable with everything you require for your stay, there is also lots of information for trips if you are not familiar with the Barga area, if your not driving there are good links to local transport nearby with access to Lucca for ongoing excursions. An excellent holiday destination ! Carol & Joe
