The beauty of the Garfagnana region
Standing at 420 meters in altitude and dominating the green Garfagnana region, lies the Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco, an exclusive Rosort & Spa on the namesake hill in the territory of Barga, near Lucca, surrounded by the picturesque and wooded valley of the Serchio river, which is peppered with medieval villages. In these places, full of ancient memories, where nature and art, legends and traditions blend admirably among chestnut woods and thick beech trees, you’ll find small inhabited centers where time seems to have stopped.
In the surrounding area is the village of Castelvecchio Pascoli, a small town known for being chosen by Giovanni Pascoli as a resort and refuge from the city. The poet produced much of his work here and chose the name of the estate as the symbol of family gatherings and the intimacy that is created around a burning wood log: il ciocco in Tuscan dialect, as a title for one of the most famous among his works, Canti di Castelvecchio.
The Resort is located within a 600-hectare park, where the modern designer Renaissance Hotels meets the colors, scents and shapes of the Tuscan green and unspoiled nature. The Resort welcomes guests in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, created by a mix of natural materials and vibrant colors, making for a unique design.
Of the 180 total rooms – 169 guest rooms and 11 suites and junior suites – 80 have been redesigned into a perfect blend of classic Italian style and modern Renaissance chic. The design and decor are elegant but at the same time functional, to ensure maximum relaxation.
With the exclusive Wellness Area and the Beauty Spa, Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco is an excellent wellness destination that can satisfy anyone’s need to relax and be pampered by relying on high-quality treatments.
Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco is a place to relax and enjoy natural surroundings, in a panoramic position with breathtaking views over the Serchio Valley, the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines and the Alps.
