We visited the hotel in July and were surprised it was not very crowded at all. It was a long, curvy drive up to the hotel. Long walk from the parking area to the reception, which is not very fun in the rain.
Although I did not get familiar with many of the activities that were offered such as horseback riding, this hotel awesome was splendid. The staff was all helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was okay but it was not a lot of selections. There was only handful of people dining. I often wondered if it was off-season in Tuscany.
Our room was on 3rd floor with balcony. The views of the hills, city of Barga, the winding roads, and the clouds were stunning. I would have enjoyed sitting on the balcony all day had it not been for some other guest on another floor waving and talking to me. At times I wished the balcony had a little more privacy. The housekeeping response for extra amenities was very quick. Room service was excellent. Only complaint I have is that my suite only had one TV in the bedroom area. It would be nice to have a second TV in the living area. The beds were comfortable and the room had attractive décor. The Wi-Fi required multiple slips of papers with long access codes. There is no lounge for platinum members. The indoor pool was great didn't get chance to try the outdoor pool due to the rain.
This is a great getaway hotel. It rained during our two-day stay, which was perfectly fine and made the stay even more spectacular.
