Perfect retreat in Barga

5 of 5
This house has everything you would need for a comfortable stay in the town of Barga. The rooms are spacious and the house comes fully equipped as per the property description. The owner has compiled an Information Folder - full of useful information on places to visit and lots about the local history. There are lots of other books and tourist maps etc. in the dining and sitting rooms. The best area of the house is the Terrace - leading straight from the kitchen. The views are just beautiful - if you get good weather during your stay, you will find it difficult to leave the terrace!! A bit of advice - I would recommend you hire a car to visit the other wonderful hilltop towns in the area, furthermore, I would recommend a smaller car such as a "Cinque Cento" (Fiat 500). Some of the roads in the area are quite narrow - a smaller car will give you more room. Overall a great experience - I would highly recommend this property to couples and families alike.

Great mountain retreat

4 of 5
The property was lovely ,nice and warm .Beautiful bathrooms and well equipped kitchen. Please note this property would suite a family better as all three bedrooms are connected and you have to walk thru one of the bedrooms to get downstairs..
