Albiano Cas Roc
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
High quality 3 bed, 3 bath Villa with private Pool, and arguably the best view in Barga!
Treat yourselves to a stay at this wonderful newly refurbished Villa, which has been renovated, furnished and equipped with quality and care to give a truly relaxing holiday! The Villa has been renovated by the owner with his own holidays in mind, so a great deal of thought has gone into the preparation of this luxurious house, which has been designed to take full advantage of the unrivalled views of Barga seen from the house, gardens and pool.
Home from home, there is quality furniture, lots of equipment and plenty of storage.
Casa Roc has been fully modernised, but has not lost its rustic charm, with wood floors, beamed ceilings and character features throughout, blending seamlessly with modern comforts! There is a real feel of romance, and whilst great for families, the house is ideal for honeymoons.

The Tuscany region
The Tuscan Region of Italy is well known for its warm balmy summers, beautiful countryside, rolling hills, mouth - watering food, and of course its towns and villages, rich with mediaeval architecture…
The Garfagnana region of Tuscany, often known as its 'Green Lung' is situated away from the milling crowds that can often be found at the most famous Tuscan locations and is totally unspoilt, remaining untouched by tourism.
The scenery is spectacular, green and mountainous with views of both the Apuane and Appenine mountains at every turn…And, due to the altitude whilst the weather can be very hot, it is always pleasantly cool for sleeping…
The food is usually home made, using home grown produce, and is typically simple and extremely tasty. Prices here remain very reasonable due to the fact that food is prepared with the locals, and not tourists in mind…The local wine is cheap and surprisingly drinkable!
The pace of life is slow and peaceful – spend your days enjoying secluded picnics, swimming in rivers, or watching locals play bocce or 'cheese throwing'. Visit hundreds of ancient hill top villages, or relax at home basking in stunning scenery.
For 'townie' days, visit the mediaeval towns of Barga, Lucca, Castelnuovo, with Pisa and Florence within easy reach too…
This is Olde Worlde Italy
Situated in Albiano, with stunning views of Barga, and the mountains beyond, this property is a perfect retreat, less than a 5 minute drive from the Mediaeval town of Barga, with its hilly windy cobbled streets, duomos, 10th Century cathedral and ancient architecture. Barga is also renowned in the area for its good quality, but reasonably priced restaurants. There are often outdoor concerts/plays performed many times free of charge with performances ranging from Rock and Pop, to Jazz and the Classics.
Within easy walking distance, is the village of Albiano with its good restaurant, and local shop/bar.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. Hilltop villages abound, and exploring can be either townie or totally rural - the choice is yours, if you can tear yourselves away from the house!
