LOCANDA AL COLLE

PARADISE FOUND

Surrounded by olive groves and Tuscan pine forests, this gorgeous boutique hotel was once a historical farmhouse. Host and owner Riccardo Barsotelli used to travel the world on business, but he has returned to Italian roots and now the world comes to him. On the northern coast of Tuscany, this charming guest house has been lovingly decorated with selected antiques and collectors’ items. Visitors stay in style paired down to the true essentials. None of the rooms has a TV. But with the spectacular view out the window over verdant forests, and the dream of an interior, who needs one? This is a house with a soul. You’ll feel right at home the moment you cross the threshold, and hold this sense of belonging in your heart long after your holiday has ended. The warm, friendly, personal atmosphere is coupled with wonderful amenities, like a heated salt-water pool for complete relaxation, and the private beach club in Forte dei Marmi, an illustrious coastal town just 11 km away. For a fun change of pace, visit Versilia Golf Club (12 km). Locanda al Colle is a peaceful oasis set against a backdrop of exciting cultural attractions.
