excellent, right in the middle of the old town.

  • 5 of 5

We come to Barga every year and use the family home but due to circumstances we had to rent an apartment this year. It was spotless, great balcony, beds all comfy, lovely white fluffy towels and bbq.

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in this charming little apartment. It was perfect for 2 people and great value. We have stayed in Barga many times before but this has so far been the best accommodation we have stayed in and it was nice to stay in the centre storico for a change. The owners were absolutely lovely and gave us helpful recommendations for our stay. My only point would be that anyone who had any walking difficulties it probably wouldn't be for you as it is perhaps a 10 minute uphill walk from any car parking and if you travel as I do with everything but the kitchen sink it's quite a way to drag a case but with it :-). Thank you Fabio we will most definitely be back!!!

The great escape

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely property, situated right in the middle of old Barga. The apartment is tastefully decorated and provided us with all that we needed for the 10 days we stayed there. I was especially thankful for the washing machine but although there was an iron, I couldn't find an ironing board. We seldom ate there, choosing to patronise the many restaurants in the area, but had we chosen to 'self cater' cooking utensils were available to use.

We stayed there in the hight of summer and the apartment, with its marble floors stayed cool throughout and the patio at the rear of the property provided good shade.

Overall, we were very happy staying at Fabio's pleasant place and booking the property couldn't have been easier. I would certainly reccomend this property for anyone who wants to explore this beautiful part of Tuscany.

Perfect apartment in Barga old town.

  • 5 of 5

Quaint apartment in the old town. The apartment had everything needed for our stay with two children. The rooms were large and airy, prefect to keep cool in August. We loved the location, which suited us perfectly as we were attending a family wedding. The views from the apartment were fabulous and the area around quiet. I highly recommend this apartment and will definitely be back. Fabio was on hand if we needed him and communicated quickly and efficiently when booking the apartment. This apartment is perfect for couples or a family, with the added bonus of a terrace to enjoy the views whilst having breakfast.
