We stayed at the Il Ciocco Renaissance June 2013. The Hotel/Resort was an incredible gem. Close to Barga and Lucca, about 1 hour from Pisa, the Il Ciocco sits high about the valley with sweeping views and lofty sights. We stayed for a conference and the conference center was well equipped, comfortable and well serviced.
I can say, unlike other reviews, we enjoyed the food, both in the restaurant and for the conference meals in the lower level restaurant. The combination
The staff were attentive and helpful. The bar was good. We enjoyed the pool area and the terrace for meals. The views were to die for.
The location worked well for us in the conference and for afternoon trips to the area, Pisa and Firenze. It is a little hard to get around this area at 4 pm along SP 20 and 445. The mountain location was excellent for hikes and hardy walks to Barga.
Lastly, we had a room in the little out building across from the front of the hotel ( room 12). The views from the terrace again were spectacular. The room was redone very recently and the furnishings and layout were great. Very comfortable, almost "normal size" and the furnishings appeared new. Air conditioning worked well.
I will return to this Hotel for business and personal travel.
