A little about the area
Situated in Albiano, with stunning views , 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.
Within walking distance, (1.5km) is the village of Albiano, where there is restaurant/bar/basic shop but hilly, bendy and no pavements/lighting.
Barga itself is circa 1 hour 15 mins from Pisa, 1 hr 40 mins from Florence;50 minutes from the beautiful walled mediaeval city of Lucca and close to the National Parks of the Apuane Alps.
Hilltop villages abound, and exploring can be either townie or totally rural - the choice is yours, if you can tear yourselves away from the garden!

It was just great thanks for everything Amedeo :)
All really very nice and cared for. Impeccable outdoor space and fantastic pool. The only drawback, was reaching the property as it was difficult (we had to ask nearby houses say it was located). A tip: in addition to the textual indications, also add photos to better understand how to reach it. For the rest, Amedeo and Paola are fantastic hosts, very nice and helpful! We will be back!

Beautiful location and a great house Simple house in a beautiful spot on top of the mountain. Wonderfully quiet and you have the feeling that you are in the middle of nature. The road to it is narrow and steep but after driving up and down a few times it is fine. The pool is lovely and the house is simple but pleasant.

Quiet location, great hosts! Satisfied all round Quiet location, good facilities. Clean rooms and pool.
We were a Danish family with two children of 3 years who had a fantastic holiday in 'Il Turello'. The house is completely secluded on top of a small mountain top and with a nice view to all sides. The road up there was a little scary the first time, but after a few times it went fine. We were greeted by our nice host, Amadeus, who himself lives a little further down the mountain - and got a nice tour of the house and the impressive fenced area that the house is located within. The house worked perfectly for our needs and was incredibly well maintained and clean. The same was the outdoor area and the pool. Around the house there is both forest and a large orchard / olive grove, which our children loved to explore. The pizza oven was a hit. Can only give the very best recommendations. Remember mosquito spray. We look forward to coming again!
