Il Bardine is a converted stable which has been lovingly restored. It is situated in one of the most unspoilt areas of Tuscany with the magical backdrop of the tall and jagged Apuane Alps and close to one of Italy's national parks. Stroll around our vineyard and fruit orchard, enjoy the freedom to walk in this peaceful setting. The area has many walking trails and why not try cycling around the mountain roads. Enjoy the pool with sun beds and views over to villages on the opposite hill tops. The area is a continual source of inspiration for artists with its scattered medieval villages and land of a hundred castles. From Il bardine visit Lucca, Pisa, Carrara with its purest and whitest Marble. Also visit the coast, the gulf of poets named after Lord Byron and see the enchanting old Portovenere named after the goddess of Love. Cruise to the famous Cinque Terre villages carved out of the mountain face. Return and relax away from it all in the peace that is called Il Bardine.

Perfect Tuscan Holiday
We had a wonderful holiday at Il Bardine this summer. The area is stunning and the owners were so helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The apartment was perfect for our needs, with all you need and the wine good! The pool (and wifi) kept our teenagers happily occupied and there was so much to see around Tuscany, all within easy reach. We want to go back and have happily recommended this to our friends, colleagues and family.
Lovely remote apartment. If you want to escape life this is where to do it. Very helpful owners, clean place....bottom apartment is a little more private...been there twice in a row, Highly recommended. You wont be disappointed.
