Overview

Villa Pierotti is a 200 year old house located on the walled perimeter of the centro storico (historic center) of Barga, Tuscany. The villa is located on Via Marconi allowing for easy access for loading and unloading luggage.

This beautiful apartment is equipped with all the modern conveniences while retaining its special charm. It has a modern eat-in kitchen, a living room with TV, DVD/CD and sofa bed. The master bedroom is furnished with an antique iron queen size bed and antique furniture. A second bedroom with two twin beds is available for small additional cost. Both bedrooms open to the terrace. The thick walls and the 12 foot ceilings keep the apartment cool in the summer. The new central heating system keeps the house cozy warm in the winter. There is a one week minimum stay.

The most striking feature of the villa is the terrace which runs the full length of the house providing for spectacular views of the Apuan Alps and breathtaking sunsets. The villa is only a few minute walk from shops, antique dealers, banks, the Saturday morning market, and restaurants serving delicious and inexpensive local cuisine.
