Tom and Julia purchased this apartment in 2004
One of the things people like about Villa Sofia is that it feels like being out in the Tuscan countryside, while it is an easy 10 minute walk into Barga, with its lovely restaurants and shops.
This is the second time we have stayed here. Tom and Julia are great hosts and the property is magnificent. The outside areas are wonderful and spending an evening in the gardens enjoying the magnificent views are what holidays are all about.
