Had a lovely stay at the Renaissance just after new year, which deserves a five-star review. Hotel is spacious and modern, staff are quite friendly, and the surrounding country side is incredible - Try to catch a sunset or sunrise, it is worth it."Trip Advisor
My wife and I stayed here in April 2014 and still dream about going back. This was one of our most enjoyable and relaxing vacations ever. The accomodations, the staff, the location and the fact that this is a Marriott make this an unbeatable choice. The location is spectacular, on a mountainside with incredible views of the valley, neighboring mountains, and quintesential Itailian villages. The accomodations are world class."Trip Advisor
Me and my boyfriend spent a wonderful weekend at this hotel in January 2014. We had a great time from the first moment; the staff is efficient, friendly and very professional, very cozy room with comfortable bed and had a soft exit to the terrace with views of the valley and Barga..."Trip Advisor
