A lovingly restored 2 bedroom rustic detached stone cottage, and separate 1 bed chestnut house (let together and both included in the price), both with original beamed ceilings and flooring, situated in the hills overlooking the beautiful medieval town of Barga.
Just a 10 min. drive or so from town, yet very peacefully situated in circa 6 hectares of private farm land/forest high up in the hills.
The views from both the houses/extensive patio area & the land are stunning. Eating al fresco under the gazebo is a real treat -the lights of the town provide a romantic backdrop, and due to the altitude it feels possible to touch the stars!
One can cook outside too, with a newly prepared outdoor kitchen area with oven, BBQ and food prep area!
In the fields above, there is the infinity style swimming pool (5M x10M plus Roman steps). Here there is a sunbathing area, and also a covered pergola providing shade too. It is difficult to want to leave this beautiful and meticulously looked after garden...
The rustic houses are furnished in traditional style, are well equipped and have been prepared with love.
A perfect 'remote, yet central' location, and ideal for groups of two couples requiring privacy from each other, but plenty of room to dine and socialise together.
There really is a feeling of pure peace at this house,& it is the perfect place to completely relax, and enjoy the pleasures of the scenery and the quiet!
There are 3 resident cats on site - not permitted in house. There are also goats in a field way up above the pool area.
