Classic Tuscan Home with Private Garden in the Old Walled City

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

This is the rare home in Barga that is located in the old, medieval walled part of the city, yet also contains an outdoor garden and patio that looks out onto the peaceful valley -- ideal for grilling, quietly reading with a glass of wine, gardening, or just relaxing under the grape vines.

The house is cozy and decorated in traditional style, yet large enough for a group of 6, with 3 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and a large well-appointed kitchen. You are mere steps away from charming local cafés, fabulous restaurants, and the town's jazz club.

Barga is a magical town, and a wonderful place from where to explore Italy. By car, you are a quick drive to Pisa, Florence, and the beach, and the city of Lucca is easily accessible by bus as well. However, Barga itself is home to some of the region's best restaurants, as well as many world-class musicians (the Jazz and Opera festivals are not to be missed!), so you may not want to leave the city limits! There are also many great hikes and walks that originate in Barga, so if you are looking for some extremely picturesque exercise you have also come to the right place.

About Zach Cutler

We are two brothers who inherited the house from our mother, who bought it as a shell and rebuilt it into a wonderful home full of warm memories. Although initially we intended to sell the home, once we went to Barga to sign the paperwork, we realized that keeping the place was a wonderful way to pay tribute to our mother's dream. Since then we have fallen in love with the people of Barga, and it has become our second home. We hope to share this amazing place with you so you can see the magic of Barga yourselves.

Zach Cutler purchased this house in 1998

What makes this house unique

The garden is one of the most wonderfully peaceful places you will ever experience, and the home itself is incredibly charming and spacious. However, within moments of wandering through the walled city of Barga, you will stumble upon a wonderful cafe or restaurant, and you will meet the amazing people who make the town so special.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house. The rooms are large and airy, the kitchen was perfect and the outdoor space was wonderful.. We had coffee outside watching the sun come up over the mountains, and we had wine, watching the sun set. It's a very quick walk to town. We hiked from Barga to Sommocolonia which was truly spiritual for us. We love Barga. I would recommend this house for all and I would love to rent it again.

Great house in the old town of Barga. Loved the garden overlooking the hills.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal house for our family of 6. Lots of space and all the facilities we needed. Spent a lot of time under the shaded outdoor dining area. House stayed cool as the temperatures rose. Rustic and perfectly positioned in the old town of Barga. A few minutes walk to shops, bars and restaurants but quiet and peaceful with beautiful views from bedroom windows.
