Fantastic stay. As two eighty year olds we found the hill a bit daunting but not insurmountable. AS I did the cooking I could have done with a chopping board and a more stable surface on the outside table
Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a fantastic stay! We have sorted out the chopping board and outdoor furniture is being changed for 2020.
Thanks for pointing out these issues

The mediaeval town of Barga, is well known for its art, music, restaurants and great views.
There are hilly windy cobbled streets, little piazzas, gelaterias, art galleries and restaurants, all settled beneath, 10th Century cathedral complete with 'Duomo'.
There are often outdoor concerts/plays performed many times free of charge with performances ranging from Rock and Pop, to Jazz and the Classics and in the summer there are regular festas and 'markets under the stars'.
All this is a short walk from the property so the location really is ideal!
Barga itself is circa 1 hour 15 mins from Pisa,
1 hr 40 mins from Florence;
50 minutes from the beautiful walled mediaeval city of Lucca
and close to the National Parks of the Apuane Alps.
A visit to Lucca is a must, with its fully intact walls which you can cycle around, gorgeous architecture, 99 churches (!), coffee bars, restaurants large piazza's & real Italian atmosphere.
There are lots of cultural events, regular antiques markets, concerts, opera (there is a performance of operatic songs every evening) , and & of course the designer shops!
Lucca Summer festival, held in July also attracts many famous Acts.
Other places to explore:
Strada del Vino
The stunning mountainous Garfagnana
The Wind Caves
Fortress at Verrucole
Zip wiring in San Romano
Torrentismo - river walking
So whilst exploring can be 'townie' In this area though the rural is also celebrated, with hilltop villages popping up everywhere.
The choice is yours, if you can tear yourselves away from Barga!
A car is recommended.
