Amazing early 1900 villa in the gorgeous ancient town of Barga. The staff is amazing as are the grounds, pool, breakfast, rooms, and balconies are stunning. The staff washed our baby clothes every day to help us with our long trip. The villa's tower is the best lookout point in that stunning region of Lucca. The owner offered to help with geneology as well. Just superb. We are going back!

We travelled as a family of four, myself my husband and two daughters aged 6 and 3. We had a delightful welcome. The staff were very accommodating and kind. They helped with many queries before and during our stay. The hotel has retained many old features which is lovely to see, there is AC in the rooms, the water is always lovely and hot. The beds were comfortable and rooms were clean. The breakfast was pleasant and eggs are cooked to order. We thoroughly enjoyed the choice of music played at breakfast. The bedrooms were very spacious, we stayed on the top floor attic and my daughters had their own room which was beautiful too. If you would like a view from the windows I'd suggest a mid floor. The pool was nice and cool and there are always loungers available. The old town was easily walkable but there are many steep inclines for those who are less able. My two girls managed the walk fine. There are plenty of restaurants within the town to choose from, these were average. The town is quiet even in peak season so if you're looking for a quiet sleepy medieval italian town for pleasant walks this would be the right place. Villa moorings hotel is highly recommended for your stay.

A delightful old villa in the quiet town of Barga. The building is a step back in time but with the added benefit of air conditioning. The staff also offer the most friendly personal service. They genuinely care that you feel comfortable and will help you in any way. Breakfast is beautifully presented and they cater for dietary needs. I have to mention the music playlist at breakfast. If you like classic rock/pop/jazz then you’ll love the atmosphere here.

What can I say, if you want Premier Inn rooms dont come here. This is the real deal. Built in 1927 as a family home (the pool wasnt there then) it is wonderful. It is so unique to stay in a small hotel like this. Beatrice and Anna Rosa were wonderful hosts. We stayed in the mothers room and had a beautiful view of the countryside. Situation was terrific to explore Barga. Lots of walks up the narrow lanes to the Duomo. Very Scottish connection in Barga. Lots of nice restaurants and bars to visit. The pool area was an unexpected surprise (cold) but very nice. The view from the belveder was amazing (360 degree). Please stay here if you are in the area.

We stayed here for a week and were given a warm welcome by Beatrice, Nadia and all the staff. The hotel is perfectly situated to explore Barga and the surrounding Serchio valley. The hotel only has 12 rooms and feels very intimate, more like staying with friends rather than in a hotel. The rooms are charming, ours had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool and surrounding tranquil countryside. The breakfasts were more than adequate, and pool very welcome after a hot day exploring the local countryside. Beatrice, Nadia and team were delightful and went out their way to ensure we had everything we needed, including ordering taxis for us to to get to and from the train station. I would highly recommend Villa Moorings and hope to stay with them again.

We had a lovely time staying in Beatrice's hotel situated in Barga. Very impressive building with nice rooms and balcony overlooking the Serchio Valley. Great place to be based for exploring Northern Tuscany. The surrounding hill towns are beautiful and very quiet. The Scottish connection with Barga is fascinating. Special thanks to Beatrice and Nadia and all other staff for making us feel so welcome!

This beautiful old house is amazing, and Beatrice and Anna Rosa are such kind and thoughtful hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them, everything is just so, the breakfasts are excellent (too many lovely cakes!!) and there is a good sized pool with plenty of seating in the sun and the shade. Our room was lovely, with a terrace overlooking the town and the hills. It is an ideal location in Barga - a couple of minutes walk from the old town but quiet and peaceful - not disturbed by the music festival and the church bells! Barga is such a beautiful and vibrant place to visit, and this is definitely the loveliest place to stay when you are there.

My husband, my daughter and I recently stayed for four nights in this lovely hotel. Our hosts could not have been more accommodating! They arranged to have breakfast ready earlier than usual, as we left the hotel each morning to hike the surrounding mountains. It was so nice to return to our clean, comfortable, spacious rooms, clean up and have a beverage on the terrace overlooking the pool. I highly recommend this property to all who visit beautiful Barga!

This hotel is situated just outside the central part of Barga, but a wonderful spot with a pure, classic style and excellent service to make your stay a special occassion. Rooms are good. The main town is a couple of minutes walking and a pleasure to do.
