Heading for the outlying areas of the town is rewarded with an excellent scenic drive (or walk).

Lovely property in a glorious spot

5 of 5
We booked all three apartments for a family holiday. They were very clean and well looked after with all the facilities we needed. The pool was great with an amazing view. Loriano was helpful and kind offering us fresh tomatoes from the garden and home made cakes. A brilliant week.

Perfect relaxing retreat

5 of 5
Il Turello is completely secluded offering the perfect relaxing holiday. It is situated on a wooded hillside giving great views of the valley below. The patio and pool area were a highlight, we spent a lot of time relaxing here. As well as a well equipped kitchen there is a wood fired pizza oven and BBQ's so you are never short of options if you don't want to go out to eat. Inside there is fireplace which we made use of on some of the colder September evenings. The whole property was clean and well maintained. Barga is close by offering a selection of restaurants and smaller shops. Slightly further away in Gallicano there is a large supermarket. As other reviews say the first drive up to Il Turello is a bit daunting, however you soon get used to it. We managed it in a fairly large automatic estate car in the rain without issue, a 4x4 is really not necessary. Our 10 days went by far too quickly and we would love to return if we get the chance.
