A Visit to Remember

Inspired by the surrounding landscape, the 55 On The Hill apartment was designed to make your visit a unique, comfortable and fun experience. Situated in the hills of the Italian/French Alps above the quaint Piedmont town of Barge, the possibilities for all year round activities are endless; whether you prefer the thrill of skiing/snow boarding or mountaineering, the freedom of mountain biking, horse trekking, hiking and rambling, or the culinary, cultural and sporting delights of Turin ~ everything is at hand.  

You will be perfectly positioned to visit a host of typical Piedmont cities, towns and villages. Barge historic centre is only a 4min drive, where you will find supermarkets, bars, restaurants, banks and petrol stations. Barge itself lies exactly between the historic hill-town of Saluzzo, with its ancient winding streets and Pinerolo, with its fashionable boutiques and stunning mountain views. Closer to home is the charming village of Cavour, which lies at the foot of  "Rocca di Cavour", where you will find fine dining restaurants.   

Only an hours drive from Barge are the beautiful rolling hills and world famous vineyards of Le Langhe, where you can sample Barolo, Nebbiolo, Barbera and Asti wines.      

Meet the Family

We are an English couple (Andy & Theresa) with a love of Italy, who moved to Barge in 2020 to start a new life in our mountain home.  

With us came two horses (Sampson & Monaco) and Trevor, the "mature" English Bull Terrier (sadly R.I.P. May 2023).   Since arriving, there have been two further additions: Lucca & Roma. 


Having discovered such a beautiful and charming place, it is now our wish to share it with other lucky travellers.
