Garfagnana, a less pricey secret

Post New Topic

I have noticed a lot of people asking about the best places to live in Italy. I still think Tuscany has a lot to offer and the prices have dropped considerably. I live in the Garfagnana regions which is close to Pisa (less than an hour away with the new motorway) has a large new hospital, very friendly locals and neighbours, is close to major tourist attractions for visiting friends and the local produce and food is delectable. Most towns have a traditional festival or market so there's always something to do. I would highly recommend the area. Any questions, feel free to ask.

Good point...Barga is a wonderful town with quite a few ex-pats and there are so many hidden treasures in the Garfagnana region..forests, a beautiful cave system with tours, rivers and lakes, terme (hot baths) in Bagni di Lucca and on and on.

Yes indeed, not forgetting the advantageous costs of living and particularly low restaurant prices, together with very affordable housing costs. It's in a great geographical location for visiting the main cities of Rome, Florence Lucca Bologna Pisa and Venice. There's also the coast with the famous Cinque Terre and ferries for visiting Corsica, Elba and Sardinia not too far away. With the added advantage of having affordable housing and friendly locals. It has so much to offer!

My wife and I are looking to check out Barga. We would like to find a place to rent for a month or more. We would like to be located in walking distance to public square, bars, restaurants, etc. Can some one with specific knowledge help us in our search?
