Vicolo Orsini - Restored, stone-built apartment in the heart of Medieval Barga


Details of the Apartment

A stone archway leads off Via di Borgo into cobbled Vicolo Orsini where the entrance is located.

The property, parts of which are hundreds of years old, have recently been sympathetically restored by skilled local artisans. They have worked together to recapture the beauty of the home with its marble kitchen sink, beamed chestnut ceilings and traditional stone architraves. At the same time, the electrics and central heating have been brought up to modern standards of safety and comfort

The front door opens onto a living area with beamed ceiling and traditional floor tiles.

The well-equipped kitchen area, with its original marble sink, has a 4-ring gas hob with electric oven, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster and kettle. The kitchen table seats four and a high chair is available if needed.

The bedroom, with its traditional wooden shutters and floor tiles, has a wrought iron double bed and an intriguing little alcove with chair and full-length window which makes an ideal spot to relax with a book and a glass of wine. The sofa in the lounge area can be opened out to provide additional beds for two people. A cot is available if needed.

There is a four-piece shower room with window.
This holiday apartment in Barga is pet / dog friendly.

Vicolo Orsini is located in Barga, Lucca Province

Barga is a traditional, medieval, walled town with a wealth of sites of historic and cultural interest. These include its famous "Duomo", a cathedral whose origins pre-date the year 1000. It sits on top of a tree-covered hill between the Apennines and the Apuan Alps.

There is a lively music and arts scene through Opera Barga and Barga Jazz. Barga also has its own theatre: Teatro dei Differenti. Outside the original walled town, is a more modern centre offering a further choice of cafes, restaurants and shops, as well as tennis courts, a riding centre and a swimming pool.

Barga is set in the beautiful Garfagnana region of northern tuscany, an area characterised by chestnut woods and olive groves, but bounded by the rugged peaks of the Apennines and Apuan Alps. The region offers a wealth of activites for those who wish to venture beyond Barga's cafes including: the coast, mountain biking, trekking & mountaineering, horse-riding, skiing and many cultural gems such as Florence.
