Overview

About the property

Apartment in Barga, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy - Stunning View Of Alps, Surrounded By Trees

The apartment is on the first floor and is in a block containing other 4 identical flats. It is in the middle of the countryside facing the Apuan Alps on one side and the Tuscan Apenines on the other. The view is breathtaking. It is 10 minutes walking distance from the town centre and 2 minutes from the outdoor, public swimming pool. The apartment itself has a front balcony where you can enjoy the sun or your meals. It also has a front garden where you can read and sunbathe. The garage has a washing machine, other washing facilities and a large shower. The inside is composed of a kitchen, living room, bathroom with bath and shower and 3 bedrooms. This home is in an ideal position. It is a short walk from the town centre where popular cafès , Lucchesi, Alpino and Onesti offer fantastic cappuccinos and fresh cakes at next-to-nothing prices. It is only a 2 mins walk from local swimming pool where you can sunbathe and then cool off and in the unlikely event of getting homesick you can wander down to the fish and chips festival for some outdoor dining and dancing (from around 23 July to 15 August). Barga has recently become a second home to many tourists who come back again and again attracted by the natural surroundings, art, culture, music, reatuarants and bars to suit every pocket. One of the best features is that everybody soon gets to know each other and looks forward to meeting up again the following year. If you are sporty there are tennis, horse-riding and swimming facilities and I really recommend trekking, mountain climbing or simply walking among the breathtaking scenery. There is so much to say about Barga that I suggest you come and find out for yourselves.

About lucia mancini

Hi my name is Lucia and if you have been to Barga before you've probably met me already as I am a part of the large Scottish Italian comunity Barga is reknowned for. I came to this area when I was 18 and my parents were both Italian. If this is your first time then I'm sure we'll get along fine as I will make sure you have all the necessary information and assistance about where to go, eat, transport and so on.

Perfect Barga

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a delightful fortnight in Barga. We were met by Lucia on arrival who was extremely welcoming and informative about Barga and all the wonderful things to do in town and around the local area. Not only did she welcome us but most days we met her in the many cafes/restuarants (especially breakfast at Lucchesi which I would recommend) around town where she always enquired about our holiday and especially if we required anything to make our stay more enjoyable.

The apartment is as described....perfect position for everything to be enjoyed in Barga. Whether it is a short stroll down to the amazing communal pool, a stroll for a beer to the Alpino hotel or up to the old town to enjoy one of the many restaurants and bars it is perfect. The apartment has everything you need and to be honest the photos don't do it justice. If you want to eat in, the kitchen has everything you will need and the occasional evening we enjoyed a meal and glass of wine (several) on the terrace. The two double bedrooms are roomy, bright and comfy and we didn't use the third bedroom but again it looked very comfortable and would be ideal for a child or teenager. On the whole the apartment was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, well furnished and equipped with absolutely no complaints and is as described in the information provided by Lucia.

The best compliment I can pay to Barga, Lucia and the apartment is I have booked for next year and look forward to our return.
