One-Off Feature

This villa in Italy is named after the morning light on the mountains and the reality is no less romantic. Perched on the front of a charming hilltop village, this centuries-old stone house offers dawn to dusk sun and the most exceptional views over the walled town of Barga, the surrounding valley and the dramatic Apuan Alps.

General Info

Tuscany is one of Italy’s most scenic and culturally rich regions, and there is no better base from which to explore it than this wonderful rustic village house. The ancient house spreads out over three storeys, with massive stone walls and panoramic views from every window, and the accommodation is simple yet pretty and comfortable. The village itself is small and delightfully quaint, and the surrounding countryside is stunning, not to mention fantastic for those who love hiking, culture and all things traditionally Italian. Come and enjoy a slower pace of life.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The village of Sommocolonia looks down over Barga, a 2,000 year old Roman town which was once voted in Italy’s top 20 for its balance of culture, tradition, beauty, food and lifestyle. It’s a working town with a vibrant community and lots of character, the 10th century church is stunning, and there are opera and jazz festivals to enjoy throughout the summer. The Garfagnana area of Tuscany is a little off the beaten track but it is very rich in history, scenery, culture and gastronomy. Wildlife like deer and wild boar are everywhere, activities like walking, hiking and cycling are very popular, and there are three lovely pools in the area at Barga, Albiano and the Il Ciocco Resort. The famous Italian Riviera is just an hour away, the walled city of Lucca is nearby, and places like Florence, Pisa and Sienna make excellent day trips.
