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.
