We stayed just one fantastic night in Benefizio, while on a tour of Tuscany - we wished we'd stayed longer. On arrival we were greeted by Sophie who had upgraded us to one of the larger apartments. Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and small lounge with a balcony overlooking an incredible view of Barga and the mountains. While we didn't use the facilities, it had everything you'd need. We enjoyed the pool, from which you could admire the view. There is a fantastic restaurant just a short walk down the hill - Suspiro Del Diablo - where we had a really delicious meal. Barga is a lovely little town to visit, the surrounding countryside is beautiful - lots of good walks in the mountains. Benefizio would be an ideal place to base yourself for exploring the area. Must come back one day.....

I cannot say good enough things about Agriturismo Al Benefizio - I suggest you stay to experience it yourself! This place is magical! The views, the pool, the space - amazing. Francesca was so sweet and texted back promptly (she even came to find us when we got lost on arrival). We went as two couples and the place was just right - we even made our dinner one night in the kitchen with the box of freshly picked veg from Francesca's garden. So delicious. She gave us recommendations, called taxis for us, offered us lifts, made bookings, and let us feed the resident donkey. And in the mornings, a local bakery brings up freshly baked bread in a van for your picking. Barga is about a 10-15 minute drive, a 45 minute walk and there is a great hike nearby. Spectacular stay and I look forward to returning.

If you are looking to escape for a while, explore some beautiful countryside whilst being a short distance from amenities and a short drive away from bigger cities (Lucca) - then you should definitely consider Al Benefizio. Superb accommodation (made even better by a stunning view over Barga), fantastic host.. and daily pastry deliveries :) I made a video diary of our time at Al Benefizio - unfortunately I'm not permitted to post a link here. If you fancy getting a closer look at the place before making your decision search David J Greenwood Italian Adventure on YouTube and you'll see a full run down.

Francesco is a wonderful host. She speaks great English and is very helpful. We loved our cosy apartment and the views are incredible. It was great having a pool - we went for a swim most days. We also did some hiking in the area and cycled around Lucca, visited a few beaches and drove through the marble hills of Carrera. I take pleasure in recommending this great place to stay.

It's been over a year since I've stayed at Al Benefizio, and I'm still in awe at what an incredible experience I've had. The place is stunningly beautiful in every season, and Francesca and her daughter are some of the most amazing people I've ever met. They are very hospitable, kind, generous, and welcoming. I can't recommend it highly enough, because there simply aren't words to do it justice. You don't want to miss out on this place and you definitely don't want to miss out on these people. You will be better off for knowing them, there is no doubt about that!

Francesca's place is beyond wonderful. She takes excellent care of you and welcomes you into the family upon arrival. It is situated outside of town on a hillside, the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. The entire experience there is like stepping into a postcard of the Italian countryside. My favorite memory is walking up the lane back home in the dark from Barga, with the night singing its wonderful songs and thousands of fireflies dancing across the hillsides so brightly it felt like a midsummer night's parade. Do yourself a favor and don't miss out on this place.

My wife and I spent a week here at Francesca's beautiful home and it was our favorite week of our 5 week vacation in Italy. The view of Barga is stunning, especially if viewed while relaxing in the pool:) There is so much life here: the vegetables, fruits, olive trees, bees; it seemed that everything growing was edible and had its own unique, delicious taste. The fireflies at night were truly one of the most amazing nature phenomenons I'd ever seen! Francesca is very hard-working and hospitable, always welcoming people to her home to enjoy meals that she has prepared. Come to unwind, connect with true Italian culture, and get in touch with nature. We'll never forget our time at Al Benefizio!

While traveling around Europe with my friend, we found this incredible spot thanks to a friend who stayed there for an organic farming internship. Only did we realize that this was one of the best decisions we could have made on the entire trip. Upon arrival, the first thing you see is the incredible breath-taking view of the entire city of Barga from her hillside. Her farm and guesthouse are exactly what you'd picture in you mind when you think of authentic Tuscany. The room itself is cozy and comfortable with stone-masoned walls that give the flat it's inherent charm. The place really has it all, but a pool that parallels the hill facing out to the city makes this Francesca's place almost like a dream. One of the most remarkable things about this place is the hostess herself. Francesca is a true Italian farmer, who has a undeniable sense of hospitality & kindness. Her personality is magnetic and really wants the best for your stay in Barga. She is a true gem if you get the chance to stay with her.

This is the third time I come to Al Benefizio, also due to my friendship with owner Francesca who is one of the most special persons I've ever met in my trips. The point of this place is that it is not only a simple place to stay and relax (although one can just choose to do that), but also an amazing spot within nature, where you can meet incredibly interesting people from all around the world coming here because of the warmth and culture they find. Francesca is simply the best host and the rooms, nature and pool do complete the awesome Eden feeling. I strongly recommend Al Benefizio to all those who want to dive deep into the beauty of nature, relax and human relationships, with plenty of culture on the side...
