What You’ll Love…

The Resort – Breathtaking Italian countryside views

The Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa by Marriott was voted one Condé Nast Traveler's top resorts in Europe in the Readers’ Choice Awards 2017, and it’s not hard to see why. Spectacularly set amongst 1,700 acres of landscaped gardens in the beautiful Serchio Valley, the resort is surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery and is ideally situated for visits to Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Cinque Terre. Guests can enjoy two resort pools, a serene spa and three on-site restaurants – not to mention breathtaking views over the surrounding Tuscan countryside.

The Room – Classic elegance with little luxuries

Rest easy in your elegant Classic Room (16 sqm), with a king-sized bed or twin singles laid with a pillowtop mattress and luxury linens, a marble bathroom with a shower, a flat screen TV with premium movie channels, a balcony and more.

VIP Upgrade – Deluxe Room: Upgrade to a more spacious Deluxe Room (22 sqm) to soak up gorgeous views over the rolling countryside of the Serchio Valley.

The Food – Learn the secrets behind Italian cuisine with a cooking class

Start your days with a hearty buffet breakfast of eggs, sausages, bacon, smoked salmon, croissants, cakes and much more.

Take home a souvenir you’ll be able to enjoy again and again as you learn the secrets behind Italian cuisine with a hands-on Italian pasta and dessert cooking class together with the hotel’s chef. Learn all about the ingredients and preparation methods required to craft authentic Italian cuisine, before making your own creations using the freshest local ingredients. Your experience includes a Renaissance cooking school apron and chef's hat, recipe cards for you to take home and complimentary soft drinks including juices, soda and coffee during the class.

Plus, refine your wine-tasting skills with a wine-tasting experience at the hotel's wine bar, during which you’ll sample the flavours and aromas of a selection of local wines hand-picked by the hotel's sommelier.

See & Do – Art, history, wineries and Tuscan countryside

Relax and unwind in the midst of the gorgeous Italian countryside with a 20-minute mini spa treatment per person; your choice of either a soothing back, neck and shoulder massage, a mini fresh facial or mini relaxing massage.

Hire a car to explore the beautiful Tuscan countryside, sample authentic Italian gastronomy and wine, marvel at the works of Italian artists and sculptors in the region’s many museums and much more on an unforgettable Tuscan escape. The Serchio Valley is one of Tuscany's undiscovered gems, located between the Apuan Alps and the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano with towering mountains as a backdrop and small villages dotted amongst chestnut and beech trees.

Tuscany is famed for its art and wine regions, with Florence, Pisa and Lucca all within easy reach, guests can enjoy picturesque vineyards, art galleries, boutique shopping and gourmet dining. Cinque Terre, featuring five colourful towns perched on coastal cliffs and connected by breathtaking hiking trails (and a train line for those who prefer a more comfortable journey), is a must-see near the Rensaissance Tuscany.

Experience the beauty and romance of the Tuscan countryside, Florence and Pisa with someone special.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a week in August 2018 and had the most relaxing, enjoyable holiday… All the staff were extremely helpful and went above and beyond for everyone and we hope to return again one day

This was one of the highlights of our recent trip through Switzerland and Italy. The hotel is located in the Tuscany region and after going through winding roads, we ended up in this beautiful resort surrounded by mountains… Thank you Renaissance team for making our short stay most enjoyable and memorable

We loved everything about our stay: the spa, the restaurants on ground, the tiny walking paths through the vineyards & forest surrounding that were talking us to the small villages around the resort, the attitude of the staff at the hotel, the quietness, the views from the rooms, the interiors, everything was perfect and made us feel spoiled and it made us feel like we stepped into a fairytale land
