Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa is a structure located in a charming corner of Tuscany, between the Apuan Alps and the Tosco-Emiliano Apennine, where the numerous medieval villages give the landscape a charming touch. Fully restored according to the concepts by the London-based architecture company, Design International, the resort – with its 180 rooms, a wellness centre, two restaurants, a beauty spa, several meeting rooms and an outdoor swimming pool – offers every kind of comfort. For the guests who decide to spend a holiday there, the imperative is only one: sit back and be enveloped in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, discover the flavours of the region and be pampered in total luxury.
Starting from the rooms – where the warm colours mingle with a sophisticated and intriguing design – to the communal areas, everything has been designed to offer a perfect combination of classic and modern and to ensure that clients feel they have come very special place. Thanks to the refined but at the same time functional furnishings, which combines a traditional style with a touch of fantasy, the hotel provides the right comfort to be able to combine different types of stay, whether for business or pleasure.
The atmosphere is further enhanced by a detail that of course does not go unnoticed: the charming, sophisticated and exclusive Eikon Evo plaques by Vimar – here in an anodized aluminium finish – are gracefully manifested in the frames for the switches, sockets and controls. Their sophisticated forms combined with a chrome frame represent a new definition of style and a new concept of luxury that brings the electrical system in line with the latest interior design trends. A real evolution, aesthetics first and foremost.
Besides its elegance however, Eikon Evo also provides maximum safety, comfort and practicality. For example, each room comes equipped with a Vimar thermostat that allows manual setting of the intensity of the air-conditioning. A wide range of sockets – from those for razors positioned in the marble bathrooms to those for the telephone plugs – meeting every need. Finally, discrete but very useful passage lights equipped with the latest generation LED diffusers are conveniently located and can be activated from the bedside via the switch. With their high-efficiency lights, these manage to provide light only where and when needed, indicating the presence of possible obstacles and automatically activating in the event of a power failure.
Every kind of comfort and a breathtaking view of the mountains around the Serchio valley complete the offering. And while still on the subject of exquisite views, La Veranda restaurant allows you to savour the tastes of this wonderful land with an incomparable view of the landscape. And finally, the luxurious beauty spa, which shares the philosophy of the entire Resort, which is based on attention to detail and utmost focus on the needs of the guests. Together with the wellness centre – consisting of a latest generation gym, indoor pool, a soft sauna, an invigorating shower with chromotherapy, an ice fountain and Turkish bath – this is the ideal place to get fit and relax at the same time.
Everything is designed to provide guests with long moments of relaxation that will enable them to rediscover and experience those pleasures that the hectic pace of everyday life has no time for. Pleasures which include being surrounded by the beauty of a five-star Resort in which Eikon Evo is the guest of honour.
