Villa Gina has been renovated to the highest standard and provides generous accommodation for twelve people with six bedrooms (with new beds), modern facilities (including three bathrooms) and a large modern kitchen.
The house has a beautiful swimming pool and sun bathing area in its own grounds, with breathtaking views over the Appenine Mountains and Serchio Valley.
The Villa is located in a small historic hill-top village called Sommocolonia. The village has a newly opened restaurant just a hundred metres from the house. The restaurant serves good quality traditional Italian fare.
The restaurant currently opens on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, but the owner has said they will open especially on other nights of the week for parties of eight or more people. All you have to do is ask!
Sommocolonia is a picturesque village with a fascinating history which can be investigated in the new village museum. During World War II the village was on the gothic line. It experienced devastating bombing, and also examples of outstanding bravery.
Near-by Barga is a busy, thriving town. It has countless festivals and fiestas, stunning architecture, great traditional restaurants, supermarket, and a variety of banks and bars and cafes. It is surrounded by terrific walking, touring and motorcycling country.
Villa Gina is a perfect spot for relaxing by the pool, or for using as a base to explore Tuscany. Florence, Pisa and Lucca are all just an easy drive away, as are the popular and traditional coastal resorts of Viareggio and Forte di Marmi.
