Why Sonia Cinquini chose Barga
We bought the amazing view! Really incredible, we immediately fell in love with it. The added value was (and obviously is) the prestigiuos location, so close to Barga but in the mean time absoultely quiet and reserved.

Fantastic nature, house, people, walking, alimenti
Sonia's family and the place are amazing! When we arrived, we immediately felt like home and, staying, we felt like being part of the family ourselves. The beautiful garden and fireplace contribute to the cozy atmosphere. The view is also breathtaking and many things to explore nearby. We had a fantastic stay!
Clean, spacious property with incredible views.
Wonderful location with amazing views across the valley. Villa is perfect for self-catering, with the village of Albiano in easy reach. The owners are very helpful and friendly and we had a fantastic holiday.
Many many thanks Jo :-) Feedbacks like this really help us to go ahead Warmest regards Diego Sonia & Family
Lovely house in a beautiful place. The description was accurate. Peaceful place up the mountain from Barga and the views were fabulous. I took so many photos of Barga in different lights and cloud formations. We were given a very warm welcome and a lovely touch to have a bottle of delicious family wine waiting for us. The house was clean and well equipped. The lounge area was small with only two easy chairs but we spent most of our time on the beautiful terrace enjoying the view. The bedrooms were large with comfy beds and lots of storage space. Good shower in the bathroom. Barga is a lovely town with plenty of restaurants and shops. Enjoyed the local restaurant in Albiano too. Grotto del Vente nearby and well worth a visit. The owners answered queries very quickly and were very helpful. I would definitely recommend this house if you want a peaceful holiday in a beautiful area of Tuscany.
Thanks a lot Alison :-)
Sonia and Diego's lovely house was comfortable and well-equipped and suited our purposes admirably. But without doubt the outstanding feature was the view from the terrace, over to Barga and across the valley to the Alpi Apuane. The view changed with the light but was particularly striking at dawn and sunset. The garden was also lovely, with its fruit trees and bird life. We would have been happy staying there all day but there was walking to be done, across to Barga (a lovely town, and it takes little over half an hour to walk there), up the hill to Somma Colonia, and further afield to the mountains. The local trattoria (ten minutes walk) was friendly and serves good food, but we never found the local bar open. Be warned, the access road to the house is steep and winding, as are most of the roads in the vicinity, but its all worth it.
Many thanks for this great review (feeedback for us). It was a real pleasure to accommodate you at our Villa. Really hope to see you again

We travelled to Ill Trebbio for the English October School holidays. My aim for this holiday was to take the kids swimming as much as possible, and this was easy to do. I took my young kids to the local pool in Gallicano on most days. They made great progress, largely thanks to the quiet and friendly environment. We also went river swimming in the valley close to Fornovalasco. The kids did that well that we drove out to the nearby Bay of Poets, where the sea temperature was a good 20 Celsius. Here it was sunny, but we still had the beach to ourselves.
In between day trips out the boys enjoyed the mountainside, roaming free and watching the fog come through the valley, the sun set over the mountains and the most spectacular evening thunderstorms. Angelo and Amelia were real stars, as they brought fresh fruit from their own harvest to share with my young boys. The hosts are honest and kind people, and that is part of the treat for me.
Local town Barga was alive and well over Halloween, and when you run out of ideas, there is always Ice-cream.
There is still lots to discover in the area, let your senses be your guide!
The coast (Viareggio) 50kms.
Airports: Pisa 1 hr, Florence 90 minutes.
The property is close to Barga. Barga itself is about 1 hour from Pisa; 90 minutes from Florence; 30 minutes from the walled mediaeval town of Lucca and close to the National Parks of the Apuane Alps. Hilltop villages abound - exploring can be either rural or townie, the choice is yours.
Albiano is one of the most prestigious place of the Serchio valley, the gorgeous view offered over the whole valley and the ancient walled town of Barga is absolutely unique.The place is peaceful and unspoilt. Barga can be reached in less than 5 mins by car and about 30 mins on foot. It is a lively, cosmopolitan town with a wide variety of wine bar, cafes, restaurants, shops and services.Barga boasts an opera house, a jazz festival, a wide number of outdoor feasts, dances and concerts and a modern swimming pool with a beautiful view.The historical centre, which dates back to medieval times, is a honeycomb of teeny lanes, cobbled alleys and stairways, spilling onto lovely little piazzas. Barga is strategical to plan visits to Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Siena and the seaside. There is a train station in the nearby town of Fornaci di Barga. Services are cheap and regular, and connect with the major towns and cities in the region.
