Situated on a spur of the Appenines, this recently restored family owned farmhouse and converted barn stand on 2 acres of tranquil olive grove and meadow, 2 km from the picturesque old walled town of Barga, which has all the shops necessary for daily living. The rooms are simple but comfortably furnished, with terra-cotta floors and chestnut beamed ceilings. Each house has a large terrace shaded by a pergola and the views are spectacular in every direction.
Buvicchia: Buvicchia is very quiet, a wonderful spot to get away from it all as we have been doing for over 30 years. Barga has all the shops needed for daily living and there are many good and inexpensive restaurants in Barga and the surrounding area. Lucca, a spectacular walled town, is 40 mins away, Florence an hour and a half, Pisa just over an hour, and the railway is 7 km away for trains to Lucca and beyond or up into the high Garfagnana. The sea is just over an hour away also. A car is very desirable and car hire is available via the major companies at Pisa airport.
The Farmhouse: Built in 1740 as a small two-roomed farmhouse, Buvicchia 3 was added to over the following decades to include a large 'cantina' or winestore (now the sitting room) with bedrooms overhead. Right up to 1972 there were earth floors downstairs, no electricity and just one cold tap in the kitchen! Two restorations later, the farmhouse now has all the necessities for daily living but the atmosphere has not changed. You can still imagine it as the home of a subsistence farmer through two centuries.
The adjacent barn: Built in the 1860s, converted in 1974 and fully restored in 2004, this converted barn sleeps 2. We have preserved as much of the character as possible by leaving the first floor almost unchanged (that's where the hay was!) and the ground floor open plan also. A terrace at the front and a second one in the garden both look out on wonderful views. This is a real hideaway, a place for total relaxation.
La Capanna: Barga Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 1542ha
This converted barn sleeps 2. It consists of a large upstairs sitting/double bed room, a bathroom (shower, bidet, basin, toilet and washing machine) and a kitchen/living area (hob, oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, open fireplace, dining and sitting area). One large terrace at the front and a second in the garden look out on lovely views and the garden has mimosa trees.
The bedroom doubles as a sitting space also. With Terracotta floors and beams, windows and door all of chestnut wood as well as a lovely upstairs balcony with fabulous views, this is more than a bedroom! The downstairs sitting area has an open fireplace which is lovely and snug in the winter. ...moreless
The washing machine and central heating and water boiler are also in the bathroom. Bath mat provided....moreless
While La Capanna is not suitable for infirm people as there are steps outside and the main bedroom is upstairs, the active not-so-young have been very happy there. We can provide bed linen for a small charge, or you can bring your own. There is a fireplace in the downstairs living area for use in cold weather and central heating throughout. We provide bathmat and tea towels, but not bath and hand towels....moreless
