Minimum Stay


Rear Apartment (2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4)

The rear apartment is a separate building, behind the main villa. It consists of a comfortable living room, kitchen, shower room and two bedrooms (one double, one with two single beds). We can provide an extra bed in living room if required. There are laundry facilities and an extra shower room below the apartment, accessed by a flight of stairs. We provide some outside furniture i.e. table, chairs, deckchairs. The garden is well tended and secure for children.

About the property


The house used to belong to my grandmother and has been handed down to the present generation. My mother had it lovingly restored a few years ago and it is beautifully decorated with period furniture. It is surrounded by well tended gardens and a pretty fountain. We offer bed and breakfast in the main villa (ask for prices) but rent out two self contained flats. The house is only 5 minutes or less walk to shops, banks, restaurants and parks. It is also close to the walled old town of Barga with its cathedral, theatre and cobbled streets. There is a good bus service to Lucca, Pisa and nearby seaside resort, Viareggio. The train station, Barga Gallicano, is a short cab ride away and from there you can venture further afield, to Florence, the Cinque Terre etc. We also have the spectacular Grotto del Vento (Wind Caves) nearby. There is an outdoor swimming pool (20 mins walk), a movie theatre and many fine restaurants. We provide free parking inside the gates or across the street.

About Maria Barry

My family have owned house for three generations. I spent many happy summers here with my nonna and even went to school in Barga for a while (which is how I come to speak Italian!)

We are only in residence over the summer months and in the Easter holidays as we have our main residence in London. We will always be 'on site'' to help with any queries as we live on the ground floor or the villa, above the Taverna.

We have been renting to holiday makers for over 10 years now and love opening up our beautiful home to visitors.

Having worked extensively in the Travel Business both in the USA and England I am uniquely qualified for this task! We also have two properties in London, UK (Paddington) which are also listed with Owners Direct and which we rent out all the year round!

Maria Barry purchased this apartment in 1949

Why Maria Barry chose Media Valle del Serchio

This was my grandmothers house. We love coming here every year as there is so much going on in Barga over the summer months!

What makes this apartment unique

Clean, fresh air. Beautiful mountain scenery with the ocean only an hour or so away by car (a bit longer on train/bus). Easy access to Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre etc. Lots of English (Scottish) speaking people around if your Italian is not up to snuff....
