via della zina - Tiglio Basso , Barga 55051 Barga (Lucca)
The Farmhouse is situated in the centre of the historical town of Tiglio, Barga, 520 metres above sea level, and it owes it's name to the very old Turkey oak trees that are situated on the house's land.
The property dates back to 1658 (east wing) and 1771 (south wing), as can still be read on the stones over the main entrances.
The property is enclosed in it's surrounding walls, being a village in itself. You will also find the swimming pool with sun terraces, the sun grotto, the children's play park, a private park, olive grove, and other buildings belonging to us which you can go to see only accompanied by one of us.

We were really happy with our stay even though the place was a bit different to what we expected; the village is really tiny and difficult to find but it was actually a plus. Apartaments are very pleasant, children had much fun there. Gioconda and Alessio are very nice and helpful people, they will make sure you feel like home there. We strongly recommend this place if you want to spend nice time and forget about everyday life!
