Large Detached Home with 8500 of Fenced Garden and Outhouse
Before Covid there was an annual international opera festival, called "Opera Barga Festival", and a long running and very successful jazz festival, "Bargajazz". I am sure both these events will come back soon. Recently, Barga has become the home of many painters, including John Bellamy (recently deceased) who exhibit their work in some of the small galleries within the castle walls. The "Sagra" is a feature of Italian rural culture; communal meals for several hundred people, eaten in the open air, often in orchards, vineyards or sports grounds. Originally religious celebrations, they are now often used to raise funds for local causes. Each town and village will have its own peculiar sagra: Around Barga from July to September it is possible to participate in a Sagra every night. In Barga itself there is the "Cena in Vignola" in the vineyard below the Duomo, and in August the "Sagra delle pesce e Patate" (Fish and Chips) in celebration of the Barga/Scottish connection. At nearby San Pietro in Campo, there is the "Sagra del Maiale" (Pork), at Filecchio the "Sagra della Polenta e Ucelli" (originally small wild birds, now pheasant), at Fornaci di Barga the "1°Maggio expo".
The Italian Touring Club has recently assigned the "orange flag" of the "Migliori borghi d'Italia" ("Best Villages of Italy"), a distinguished sign recognizing the peculiarity of its beauty and of its quality.
You will never be bored in this location as it is peaceful but also close to all facilities, shops, bars, schools and even a hospital.

On this floor there is also a storage room. The architect who designed and built the house in 1995 took great care to make sure that the house had plenty of storage rooms to make it easy to live in.
The property is accessed by electric gates and has all services attached. There are fantastic large interior spaces in the living area. All in all this is a very beautiful home.
