The hotel is not easy to reach but it was strategically placed for a business trip. I arrived late at night and the view from the room was impressive. In the morning it was even more with the whole structure revealed. I dined at the hotel and the quality of the food was quite high. Quality is certainly preferred over... More

This Renaissance has some amazing views. Get a balcony room. It is a little out of the way but you can reach Florence in 1.5 hrs by car, Pisa in about 45 min. In the close proximity is Barga and other mid evil villages. Try Podere Concori winery. Threre is train access nearby as well. Relax and enjoy Northern Tuscany.

Just came home (down the hill in Barga) having spent New Years Eve at Il Ciocco. It was an amazingly fantastic night. The Gala Dinner was out of this world. It started with aperitivi and canapes such as prawns, oysters, caviar etc etc in the lounge area with the bubbly flowing in abundance. We then went to the restaurant where... More

We left Milan without a plan and decided to try this for the night. It was hidden but worth the search. What a treat! The room had a wonderful view, the food was tasty (breakfast buffet was great!) and the grounds were beautiful for walking. Service was top notch.
