Shaner Hotels’ Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa was recently featured on ABC’s The Bachelor, which aired on February 12, 2018. This season of The Bachelor took the cast to Italy, selecting the town of Barga and the Renaissance Tuscany as their home base.

“The Beauty of the region, Barga and the resort in combination with the local culture made the Renaissance the ideal location for the filming of the episode.” said Shaner President Plato Ghinos.

“We were honored to welcome the cast of The Bachelor and be a part of Arie’s and these wonderful young ladies’ journey to find true love,” said Georges Midleje, General Manager at Renaissance Tuscany. “Our remote location within Tuscany offers the most authentic of experiences that can be had in Italy, where time slows down to savor the moment, tune out the noise from the outside world and reconnect. Breathtaking and inspiring — it’s really the perfect backdrop for love – and dare I say a destination wedding.”

Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa overlooks the mountainous Serchio Valley, one of the most unexplored areas of Italy. Here guests can discover nearby quaint medieval villages, Barga and Lucca, or travel within one or two hours to well-known city favorites, like Florence, Pisa, and Cinque Terre. Featuring 180 luxurious rooms and suites, as well as over 18,000 square feet of event space and the ability to accommodate up to 1,000 people, the property also offers a full-service spa, two restaurants and a bar serving local cuisine, two swimming pools, a health club, on-site cooking lessons, and varied excursions within the surrounding area.

The episode garnered a viewership of 5.94 million people, providing invaluable exposure in the US market. Thank you to the Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco team for your hard to work to make this venture a success.
