Villa Sofia, Barga, Italy

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is within easy walking distance of Barga, a beautiful old town in the hills. The apartment itself is enchanting - rustic, comfortable, with large airy rooms and every convenience. The gardens are fabulous, the views breathtaking, and the pool a real bonus. We loved everything about it.

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

Great villa, our apartment was excellent, clean and spacious. Short stroll in to old town(best part of Barga). Tom was very chilled and accommodating. Only slight drawback was that the pool was a tad small to accommodate all the apartments but adequate for a dip. Plus the communal Barga pool is less than 5 mins by car and is a fantastic pool that has everything you need for a days sunbathing, swimming, eating and relaxing. Highly reccomend this accommodation. I will 100% be back.

Beautiful Barga

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here. Tom and Julia are great hosts and the property is magnificent. The outside areas are wonderful and spending an evening in the gardens enjoying the magnificent views are what holidays are all about.
