Overview

About the property

Apartment with terrace and BBQ in Barga Vecchia, With View On Alpi Apuane

This beautiful apartment is located in the very heart of medieval Barga, 20 metres from Piazza del Comune where you will find the atmospheric cafe/restaurant Capretz and Aristo's bar. The theatre, the Duomo and many other cafes and restaurants are only a couple of minutes' away while the modern centre is only 5 minutes' walk. Only if you stay inside the walls, you can really appreciated the feeling of Barga.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic! The apartment is beautifully presented and exceptionally clean and furnished to a very high standard. The views are gorgeous from each window but especially from the terrace which has an insitu BBQ for outdoor cooking. The apartment is situated in the heart of a medieval town and has all the narrow streets and steep pathways that are part of the environment and add to the charm. With restaurants and bars in the piazza the apartment sits above I found it to be the perfect place for me to explore the Garfagnana region and wouldn't hesitate to go back’



‘Excellent apartment on an excellent location. We will certainly recommend this apartment.’



"An excellent well laid out appartment in a beautiful part of Tuscany. Lovely views from the terrace and only a minutes walk to a nice selection of bars and restaurants in the old town".

Charming apartment in heart of old town

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was very clean an has everything you need for a stay in Barga

Loved being in the middle of the old town -close to local restaurants and just below the Duomo. Took a while to work out the Italian plug system but that is all part of living in an older property. The mattresses were a bit hard and the kitchen sink had no cold water but otherwise we loved the apartment

Idyllic apartment in beautiful Barga

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautifully clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The terrace is a lovely place to sit and watch the stars come out, but unfortunately had no shade from the afternoon sun. Maybe a parasol or some sort of sunshade might be something to think about? The location is ideal, right in the heart of town with everything within easy walking distance. Lots of lovely places to eat and mostly very reasonably priced. Wonderful gelateria!! We didn't quite work our way through all the flavours! Beautiful surrounding countryside, views from the Duomo are stunning, a photographer's paradise. We'd definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in Barga old town. A perfect holiday base.

A delightful apartment in Old Barga, which is close to restaurants & music entertainment, the terrace is relaxing with lots of sun in the afternoon & also has great views of the mountains, Fabio, the owner met us at a local cafe & was extremely informative, welcoming & helpful, we would not hesitate to return.
