Eighteenth-century farmhouse, sensitively restored in 2000 to make a comfortable three-bedroom house sleeping up to 7 people. The house has a sitting-room with working fireplace and dining area, an eat-in kitchen and two bathrooms. The property is 2km from Barga, about 45 minutes' drive from Lucca and about 90 minutes' drive from Pisa airport.
Buvicchia 3 consists of an old farmhouse with three bedrooms that sleeps up to 7 people, and a converted Barn with one bedroom that sleeps 2. It has beautiful views to the Apuan Alps and the Appennines. It's comfortable but simple and rural - the perfect place for a quiet getaway and close to the lively old walled town of Barga which has good restaurants, live music, markets and a pool. The house has a wisteria-shaded terrace and a large partly terraced garden including olive trees and fruit trees.
' The views from the houses are breathtaking, with spectacular sunsets-a great spot for sketching or photography.'
'This is a little gem of a capanna and very well equipped. The pictures are deceptive as it's very spacious for two inside. The views from the terrace are stunning.'
'Thank you for the easy transactions and communication in our booking and we will certainly be looking to return.'
The Tuscan riviera (Viareggio and surrounding towns) is about an hour's drive.
The property is about 90 minutes' drive from Pisa airport. Use of a car is strongly recommended; although it's possible to be at the property without a car, it's a two-kilometre (scenic) walk into town. The nearest railway stations (Barga Gallicano/Fornaci di Barga on the Lucca-Aulla line) are a taxi ride away.
The property is 2km outside the old walled town of Barga. Lucca is 45 minutes' drive; Pisa and Florence 90 minutes' drive.
Barga has all necessary facilities including a supermarket, a number of good restaurants, internet access, a tourist office, bars, music venues and local festivals (such as the food-based 'sagre' events). The town's Duomo is in a spectacular position. Barga has an opera festival and a jazz festival in the summer months. The property does not currently have fixed internet access but there is good reception for roaming broadband.
