About Riccardo Pieri

Hello my name is Riccardo Pieri and I am a concert pianist and a good painter too, I hope!! My property is in a very relaxing spot in the Barga countryside within a few minutes walk of the town centre. Barga is a very popular Tuscan hilltop town, ideal for people who like to spend their holidays in a quiet and relaxing place. I like to meet new people and offer them a taste of traditional Italian life. During the week I like to organize piano and painting courese with the guests and at the night sometimes we organize a Pizza or Barbecue all together.

Why Riccardo Pieri chose Media Valle del Serchio

"Limonaia" Cottage is located in a peaceful spot just 5 minutes' walk from the centre of the beautiful medieval town of Barga where there are good restaurants and shops. During the summer Barga offers many chance for the guests like concerts, festivals, markets under the stars and folk evening.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with 2 student aged children. As far as we are concerned we found a little gem with this property. Met all our requirements, was a genuine 5 minute walk into town but at the same time peaceful with many afternoons spent by the pool. Riccardo was fantastic, very helpful and we were invited to dine with Riccardo & his parents one night which we thoroughly enjoyed. No air conditioning which made the cottage a little hot but otherwise first class. Would not hesitate to recommend both the cottage & Barga.

A gorgeous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Limonaia. The cottage is well-equipped and has a beautiful garden -perfect for breakfasting in before it gets too hot, and a great outdoor shaded eating area for lunch. The pool is gorgeous with lots of sun loungers - just what is needed for a relaxing holiday!

Barga itself is very pretty with great restaurants and is close enough to do a day trip to Florence.

Riccardo and his parents are the most wonderful hosts - always available with useful info. And the highlight was sharing a traditional Italian meal with them and their extended family one night - I lost count of all the delicious courses!

Plus we can't not mention Pancho who both our teenagers fell in love with!

Thanks for a lovely holiday.

An Italian Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic holiday, more than a holiday, an experience. A fabulous location, a great host, a hire car to explore, lunch in mountain villages, wandering into Barga for dinner. The real Italy. Thanks Riccardo.

My husband and I have just spent a lovely holiday in limonia cottage.

5-10 minutes into town along a beautiful tree lined avenue.

Riccardo was the epitome of a perfect host .from meeting us at the station to entertaining us along with his delightful mother and father and suggesting areas to visit.

If you want a tranquil holiday this is for you.

Thank you Riccardo Marelena and Mario and not forgetting "pancho"

Wonderful holiday at Barga Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Just spent nine great days in Barga with my wife and son. We stayed in the Limonia chalet. Riccardo and his parents have been the most hospitable of hosts and sharing a meal with them, their friends and other guests was a wonderful and real experience of Italian life. The grounds, garden and pool have been a terrific place to while away the time, catch some rays and to relax and read. At night all was still and peaceful.

Barga is a great little town with its hill top medieval centre with narrow winding streets, good small restaurants and trattorias surmounted by its own small cathedral. Food was delicious. Over the bridge and it’s the new town with its 19th century villas and shady tree lined avenue. All within 10-15mins walk from Linonia. The views and scenery across the valley to the mountains were exceptional. A perfect setting for the festivals that the town has

A wonderful and relaxing holiday. Riccardo – thank you

Lovely gem of a place

  • 4 of 5

My sisters and I had a lovely stay in Limonia in September. The cottage was perfectly positioned for enjoying the many attractions of Barga - the centre of which is a ten minute walk away. A particular plus point is the lovely private garden fully equipped with table, chairs and sun loungers. But what makes this cottage stand out for me is the fantastic customer service provided by Ricardo which even extended to handing in two large umbrellas on the one day when it rained! Barga is a beautiful place to visit at any time of the year with many fantastic restaurants. I would definitely recommend Limonaia to anyone thinking about visiting this stunning region.
