This place is very relaxing and have a wonderfull view on the historic town Barga. Al Benefizio is located at the hillside. The appartments come very clean and cozy and are equipped with everthing you need; from dishwasher - mosquito catcher. The only thing that's missing is Airco

My wife and I spent a week here at Francesca's beautiful home and it was our favorite week of our 5 week vacation in Italy. The view of Barga is stunning, especially if viewed while relaxing in the pool:) There is so much life here: the vegetables, fruits, olive trees, bees; it seemed that everything growing was edible and had...

While traveling around Europe with my friend, we found this incredible spot thanks to a friend who stayed there for an organic farming internship. Only did we realize that this was one of the best decisions we could have made on the entire trip. Upon arrival, the first thing you see is the incredible breath-taking view of the entire city...

This is the third time I come to Al Benefizio, also due to my friendship with owner Francesca who is one of the most special persons I've ever met in my trips. The point of this place is that it is not only a simple place to stay and relax (although one can just choose to do that), but also... More

Thanksgiving 2012 marked my fourth time staying at Al Benefizio with Francesca to visit her family, friends, and amazing agriturismo place. I gave up dropping on friends homes to eat turkey and fixings for a week learning more italian, picking olives from her trees and learning to extract olive oil - a personal experience I could have never had as...

The only regret we had with this place is that we did not stay long enough. The place is beautiful but a bit difficult to find (which is part of the charm). Nice swimming pool, chickens, donkey, and Pluto the dog adds to the charm. Francesca very helpful. The view from the house is just impressive, with Barga on the... More

We arrived in Barga and fell in love with the town, the people and the Al Benefizio where we stayed over the next few days. The owner Francesca is absolutely lovely and helpful. She is a passionate beekeeper and supplied us with plenty of delicious honey and information about beekeeping. Her beautiful dog Pluto is an amazing tour guide leading... More

My partner and I spent a week here and just didn't want to leave. Our second night Francesca made pizza in her ancient woodfire oven, hosting a wonderful party for Benfizio guests and her friends. Needless to say, I've never had better pizza. And I'd never before had CHOCOLATE pizza. We stayed in the "matrimonial," enjoying glasses of wine and... More

We stayed here for 4 days in summer 2012 but wished it would have been more. This place is 'magic' and we will definitely go back! Positive points: quiet and relaxing atmosphere, perfect pool, amazing views from our private balcony, nice town at 2km, lots of things to see and do in the area (we loved hiking the Alpi Apuane),...

Pretty much our favorite place in the world. We (me, my wife, and our 9-13 year-old son) have been three stays of a week or more, and hope to return soon. There's no where else we are happier doing less. The view across to Barga is magic, and it's a nice walk into town either along the road or by... More
