This gorgeous house has been fully modernised, but has not lost its rustic charm, with traditional cotto floors, beamed ceilings, barn style windows in some rooms, and character features throughout. This all blends seamlessly with the modern comforts of brand new fully equipped kitchen, and the new bathrooms....

There is a welcoming open plan living/diner with fireplace, TV, WIFI , and a brand new fully equipped modern kitchen. Each of the living areas has doors leading out to the terrace, making the most of the amazing views.

Outside, there is a covered loggia area leading from the kitchen, for al fresco dining with a mountain backdrop.

There is a further pergola area providing shade to the side of the house, and also there will be a gazebo by the pool with furniture for relaxing.

A little about the area

Situated in Albiano, with stunning views of Barga, and the mountains beyond, this property is a perfect retreat, less than a 5 minute drive from the Mediaeval town of Barga, with its hilly windy cobbled streets, duomos, 10th Century cathedral and ancient architecture. Barga is also renowned in the area for its good quality, but reasonably priced restaurants. There are often outdoor concerts/plays performed many times free of charge with performances ranging from Rock and Pop, to Jazz and the Classics.

The property is within a stone's throw of a good restaurant, and bar, which is a rare advantage in this rural area.

Places to visit:

Castelnuovo - local market town - 15 mins 

Lucca - beautiful fully walled mediaeval city, the birthplace of Puccini - 50 mins 

Verrucole - 35 mins - local fortress with stunning views and interactive tour/museum good for children

Adventure park Levegliese - 25 mins - rock climbing, river canyoning, canoeing and some zip wires. 

Buffardello park - 30 mins - zip wire and tree climbing adventure park. Ideal forsmall children, right up to the most adventurous of adults - many different courses to choose from.

Grotta del Vento - 30 mins - massive wind cave system and tours

Pisa - 1 hr 15 mins

Florence 1 hr 40 mins

The coast - the Versilian coast is a 1 hr 20 min drive away either via motorway, or via the stunning Apuane mountains

These are just some suggestions since hilltop villages abound, and exploring can be either townie or totally rural - the choice is yours, if you can tear yourselves away from the house and the pool area.


NB - final part of access is via a narrow road. Access is passable even with a large car, with care. If guests have concerns, car can be left in village car park 100M away.

We had a set stay in the house, the location is unsurpassed, however, one must be aware of a very steep road there. The outside areas are cozy and plenty of space, with several terraces and the possibility of shelter. Nice that the pool is so close to the house. Inside, the house is nicely renovated, the kitchen is well equipped so good opportunities for cooking. Lots of closet space in the kitchen and in the rooms, and the beds were good. There are tabs in all rooms, nice. Only small minus was that there was gardener on Friday when we arrived and several hours ahead, as well as again on Saturday. But definitely a house and area we would like to visit again.
