High above the valley our private roof terrace provides such an amazing vantage point that we named the adjacent magnificent suite “La Terrazza.” On clear days guests of "La Terrazza" enjoy spectacular views towards the Mediterranean Sea and sometimes even beyond to the coastline of Cinque Terre. Even during cooler times you can enjoy the breathtaking vista from behind the panoramic windows of the spacious living room, while you are sitting in front of the open fireplace. The bedroom is located on the garden side of the house, shaded by the ancient stone oaks, and promises a tranquil and restful sleep. La Terrazza is our largest and most elegant suite and a perfect fit for travelers who would like to splurge a bit.
Olive trees, rosemary and oleander bushes: all the beauty of the Ligurian countryside spreads out right in front of “La Campagna.” Just a few steps down from the terrace and private garden of this suite you will find our wellness area with sauna, outside shower, foot bath and a heated "plunge"-pool. From the living room, where a wood burning stove creates a cozy atmosphere during the cooler part of the year, you have beautiful views over the valley. The bedroom is located in the back part of the unit right next to a typical, picturesque Italian courtyard. “La Campagna” is part of the oldest wing of Villa Barca and the rustic, ancient beams of the living room give testimony to the antique history of this place.
Ancient stone oaks filter the rays of sun, the elegant french doors are wide open and let in the smells and sounds of the garden. That describes a typical summer day at “Il Giardino.”, our intimate garden suite. This lovely group of rooms includes a small kitchen inviting you to cook the little delicacies that you may have found at the local farmers markets or in the small shops of the valley. The table for your al fresco meal can then be set under the branches of the grand, old chestnut tree. On cooler nights, the small fireplace provides cozy comfort and a nice, romantic atmosphere. “Il Giardino” is a place for dreamy souls and is adjacent to our “Capella,” a room of stillness, which invites to the practice of meditation and yoga.
JUST A FEW STEPS THROUGH THE PERGOLA ...
Only a few steps from the main Villa, walking through the enchanted honeysuckle pergola you will reach the old caretaker’s cottage, situated within our historic country estate. Based on the original blueprints of a humble, Ligurian adobe we have created a wonderful, traditional home built from regional stones. Two generous suites will await our guests starting spring 2021. The opulent French doors and windows enjoy spectacular views towards the Mediterranean Sea and sometimes even beyond to the coastline of Cinque Terre.
The tastefully furnished suites will offer our guests a true, authentic Ligurian experience without lacking modern amenities and comfort. As the sun rises, the Foresteria is illuminated by the golden glow of the first rays which you can enjoy right from your comfortable bed. Wonderful paintings created at Villa Barca by German artist Heidrun Brocker accent the walls and pull in the ever-present nature as the main focal point.
The Foresteria-suites feature well equipped kitchens, inviting you to cook the sumptuous delicacies that you may have found at the local farmers markets or in the small shops of the valley. In the morning wake up to a continental "basket-breakfast" with delicious breads, roles, jams, orange juice and seasonal fruits*. Start your day indulging in the breathtaking views in the privacy of your own patio. Even during cooler times you can enjoy the vista from behind the panoramic windows while sitting next to the comfortable pellet fireplace
As an extra special comfort amenity, we provide a pillow menu for our guests' individual selection.
Getting the pillow "right" is the essence of a good night's sleep.
As in selecting a fine wine, choose the pillow that is right for you and your perfect night's sleep.
Lay your head to rest at Villa Barca and Sweet Dreams...
