Apartment in Tuscany, Italy

Property Details of Tuscany Apartment

Romantic 50 sq.m. studio-apartment in a villa that has been built at the start of 1900 in modern (or art nouveau or liberty) style. The apartment was the large living room of the villa, there is now a dividing wall that has no doors but only two archs. Suitable for two people, the apartment has an independent entrance and a big (40 sq.m.) furnished terrace where it will be a pleasure having dinner , taking the sun or enjoying the wonderful views of the vineyard, of the valley and of the distant mountains. The quiet and relaxing place rich in fairy tale atmosphere could be ideal for a honeymoon, however, if you have a baby it is possible to arrange a baby bed. The apartment also has a television and there is a washing machine. The villa is only 2 minutes walk far from the historic centre of old Barga.

Local Area Details

The small hilltop town of Barga (altitude 410 metres) is dominated by the fine cathedral, which houses an excellent marble pulpit and some works of the Della Robbia school. An important centre of the Garfagnana, it has wonderful views of the whole area and the town itself is a charming network of narrow streets, archways and winding stairways.
The upper (and older) part of the town is to be explored on foot and has all sorts of hidden alleyways and tight staircases leading to who knows where - the streets play host to an unusual 'Living Nativity' pageant each Christmas.The town grew up around an ancient Lombard castle and was surrounded by a wall with three separate gates. Besieged at different times by both Pisa and Lucca, it eventually became part of the Florentine state and stayed so until 1859.
After you have trekked all the way up, relax a while on the paved terrace in front of the Duomo that offers a wonderful 'viewing platform' over the surrounding rooftops, terraced hills and distant mountains.

Garfagnana, with its mountains and its woods, is a fruitful valley, rich in history and traditions, that, crossed by the Serchio river and its tributaries, divides the Apuane Alps from Appennino Tosco-Emiliano. The influence of two such different surrounding areas has promoted the development of an original landascape, very special not only for geography but also for culture. Within easy travelling distance from famous artistic cities like Lucca, Pisa and Florence, Garfagnana offers an unpolluted environment, where you can fully immerse yourself - walking on the paths of the valley , going on horseback or by bike, or along the old mule-tracks, which lead you to discover picturesque villages, traditions and the history of this land.
How to get there:
Barga is in the hills, 35 km from Lucca. The nearest airport, well connected to Lucca via the local train line or by local bus, is the Galilei International Airport in Pisa. By train from Lucca it is possible to arrive in Fornaci di Barga station which is 5 km from Barga, you then need a taxi. By bus from Lucca instead you can arrive in Barga at only 100 m. from my villa.
By car Highway A11 Florence - Mare (Sea) exit Lucca then the Brennero road.
It will be easy to get to my villa in Barga as it is just 50 m past the Hotel Libano entry.
