Nel Cielo is a romantic penthouse suite in the heart of Old Barga in Tuscany. Guest accommodation is for two, either as one double or two singles. It occupies the entire top floor and has independent access from the little street below. There is a large ensuite bathroom with walk-in, wet-room style shower.
The double bedroom has French windows opening onto a broad balcony with breathtaking views over Barga to the Alpi Apuane and beyond. This is a wonderful space to relax with a book or just to sit and enjoy the beauty, the peace. Evenings buzz with live music, tantalising food and happy sounds of Italian life, distant yet close, drifting up from the piazzas of this beautiful town.
Nel Cielo was completed in 2013, the last new build within Old Barga. All materials were locally sourced and traditional building methods employed by the small team of artisans and craftsmen. The interior design combines traditional Tuscan features with modern improvements where appropriate. For example in the bathrooms, underfloor heating and insulation.
Nel Cielo Bed and Breakfast is situated in Vicolo Nardi, a charming, narrow street which leads up from the tourist information centre to Barga's Duomo. The house may be reached on foot only, from the top or bottom of the steps which form part of a network of enchanting little streets and alleyways leading from piazza to piazza.
The house stands in a high, relatively quiet position in the historical centre and so is light and airy; there are marvellous views from all windows.
Breakfast is optional as there are many local bars offering cappuccino, delicious sweet pastries and savouries with the opportunity to sit outside and experience the Italian lifestyle.
