About the Owner

Hello my name is Riccardo Pieri and I am a concert pianist and a good painter too, I hope!! My property is in a very relaxing spot in the Barga countryside within a few minutes walk of the town centre. Barga is a very popular Tuscan hilltop town, ideal for people who like to spend their holidays in a quiet and relaxing place. I like to meet new people and offer them a taste of traditional Italian life.

Beautiful views & wonderfully welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic, relaxed week at Il Mandolato. Riccardo and his family are incredibly welcoming and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The property boasts fantastic views of the mountains from the terraces and balcony and the setting is peaceful but convenient for the centre of Barga with its restaurants, historic sites, arts & culture. Il Mandolato is the most spacious of the apartments, with 2 floors, 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms & a large living area and shared pool.

Riccardo helped organise car hire locally and there is plenty to see. Lucca, Pisa & Florence, as well as beautiful mountain villages, are all within easy reach and public transport is cheap and reliable too.

A truly memorable holiday.

il rustico

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Riccardo Pieri's properties before as we are regular visitors to Barga. Riccardo and his family are genuine, warm and friendly people, and nothing is too much trouble for them.

This is the first time we have stayed at Il Rustico, we rented the apartment called Il Casale.

It is in a wonderful and private location with fantastic views. The large outdoor pool was ideal for us and our two young children. The apartment overlooks the pool, so it is very safe for the kids to be in the pool, as they are never out of sight.

The apartment is very comfortable and ideal for a small family. Barga is about a 20-25 minute walk away.

we certainly would book this property again.
