From the manager

A lovingly restored 2 bedroom rustic detached stone cottage, and separate 1 bed chestnut house (let together and both included in the price), both with original beamed ceilings and flooring, situated in the hills overlooking the beautiful medieval town of Barga.

Just a 10 min. Or so drive from town, yet very peacefully situated in circa 6 hectares of private farm land/forest high up in the hills.

The views from both the houses/extensive patio area & the land are stunning. Eating al fresco under the gazebo  is a real treat -the lights of the town provide a romantic backdrop, and due to the altitude it feels possible to touch the stars!

One can cook outside too, with a newly prepared outdoor kitchen area with oven, bbq and food prep area!

In the fields above, there is the infinity style swimming pool (5m x10m plus roman steps). Here there is a sunbathing area, and also a covered pergola providing shade too. It is difficult to want to leave this beautiful and meticulously looked after garden...

The rustic houses are furnished in traditional style, are well equipped and have been prepared with love.

A perfect 'remote, yet central' location, and ideal for groups of two couples requiring privacy from each other, but plenty of room to dine and socialise together.

There really is a feeling of pure peace at this house,& it is the perfect place to completely relax, and enjoy the pleasures of the scenery and the quiet!

There are 3 resident cats on site  - not permitted in house. There are also goats in a field way up above the pool area and resident tortoises and donkeys on the property - great fun for children!

Fuller details - main house:

The property retains most of its original features, with original chestnut beamed ceilings throughout, and wooden and terracotta flooring.

Ground floor:

Large entrance hall, with dresser.

Living / dining room with open fireplace, satellite tv including English channels, dvd, internet access.

Kitchen/diner; with table, wood burning aga style stove, separate small hob, grill, fridge/freezer , microwave and dishwasher. Door leading onto:

Extensive patio area overlooking the town of Barga. Outside eating furniture, and sun beds.

Upstairs:

One double bedroom

One twin bedroom

Extensive 'landing' area with tv, and single bed.

Shower room.

Barn:

The property has a real romantic feel!

On the ground floor there is a living area with large windows and arched doorway out to patio, separated from the kitchen/dining area by a circular working fireplace which sits in the middle of the room and therefore heats the entire house.

Kitchen has oven, hob, fridge, washing machine… living area has working fireplace, dvd player.

Up the spiral staircase:

Lovely romantic double bedroom with doors placed opposite the bed, to take advantage of the wonderful views..

There is also a good sized modern shower room.

Grounds:

The private 'infinity style' swimming pool (10m x 5m plus roman steps) is high above the house so as not to totally spoil the traditional feel of the property, and to ensure it remains totally out of sight. The view from the pool is wonderful and the style of pool means it feels one is swimming in the mountains.

Patio area with covered al fresco dining, with wonderful views.

Outdoor kitchen with food prep area, oven, bbq

Extensive gardens.

Nb:

Not suitable for elderly or infirm due to steep climb to the pool. Small children will need supervision due to the terraced nature of the grounds and climb to pool.

Extensive patio area outside of houses, including wood oven and bbq

A little about the area:

The property is just a 10 minute drive up into the hills from the mediaeval town of Barga, which is famous for its windy cobbled streets, wonderful restaurants, mediaeval architecture, and outdoor concerts.

It is situated an hour from the City of Pisa, 1 1 / 2 hours from Florence, and 45 minutes from the mediaeval walled city of Lucca. Siena is just over 2 hrs away. The coast is about 1 hr 15 mins.

For airports, Pisa is 1 hr 10 mins, Florence 1 hr 30 mins; Genoa, Bologna and 2.5 hrs each.
