     Description 


Romantic and panoramic 50 sq.m. studio-apartment in a villa that has
been built at the start of 1900 in modern (or art nouveau or liberty)
style.
The apartment was the big living room of the villa, there is now a
dividing wall that has no doors but only two archs.
Suitable for two people, the apartment has an independent entrance
and a big (40 sq.m.) furnished terrace where it will be a pleasure
having dinner , taking the sun or enjoying the breathtaking views of
the vineyard, of the valley and of the distant mountains.
The quiet and relaxing place rich in fairy tale atmosphere could be
ideal for a honeymoon, however, if you have a baby it is possible to
arrange a little portable bed. The apartment also has a television
and there is a washing machine.
The villa is only 150 meters from the historic centre of Barga.

 

     Amenities 


The location of this apartment could not be better - 1/2 block
walking distance to the pharmacy, trattatoria and walled city. A few
more blocks to the main shopping area. The apartment is quiet, clean
and bright with a lovely garden/vineyard to gaze upon. The view is
amazing - completely unobstructed with great patio furniture for
candlelit evenings. The caretakers are wonderful - very friendly and
helpful. Access to other cities is easily accomplished by either car,
local bus or train. Barga itself is a beautiful small city to explore
as is all of northern Tuscany. The locals are very friendly (the
friendliest of Italy!) and not speaking Italian is not much of a
hindrance.

 

     Attractions 


Barga - Garfagnana

The small hilltop town of Barga (altitude 410 metres) is dominated by
the fine cathedral, which houses an excellent marble pulpit and some
works of the Della Robbia school. An important centre of the
Garfagnana, it has wonderful views of the whole area and the town
itself is a charming network of narrow streets, archways and winding
stairways.
The upper (and older) part of the town is to be explored on foot and
has all sorts of hidden alleyways and tight staircases leading to who
knows where - the streets play host to an unusual 'Living Nativity'
pageant each Christmas.The town grew up around an ancient Lombard
castle and was surrounded by a wall with three separate gates.
Besieged at different times by both Pisa and Lucca, it eventually
became part of the Florentine state and stayed so until 1859.
After you have trekked all the way up, relax a while on the paved
terrace in front of the Duomo that offers a wonderful 'viewing
platform' over the surrounding rooftops, terraced hills and distant
mountains.

Garfagnana, with its mountains and its woods, is a fruitful valley,
rich in history and traditions, that, crossed by the Serchio river
and its tributaries, divides the Apuane Alps from Appennino Tosco-
Emiliano. The influence of two such different surrounding areas has
promoted the development of an original landascape, very special not
only for geography but also for culture. Within easy travelling
distance from famous artistic cities like Lucca, Pisa and Florence,
Garfagnana offers an unpolluted environment, where you can fully
immerse yourself - walking on the paths of the valley , going on
horseback or by bike, or along the old mule-tracks, which lead you
to discover picturesque villages, traditions and the history of this
land.
