Pisa has much more to offer. Visiting the Italian Riviera, there are plenty of smaller, lesser-known places offering unrivalled scenery.
Right in the middle of the romantic hotels in the beach village of Forte dei Marmi – the perfect base to explore the area, you will find a new and über-exclusive one: the Principe Forte dei Marmi hotel. A bit set back from the beach the contemporary Principe hotel is unique in the area.
The decor is pared-down and elegant with warm woods, stone and glass playing backdrop to a who’s who of Italian furniture design. The ground floor is a light-filled open space with sitting, bar and restaurant areas contained within retractable glass walls. There are only 28 bedrooms all decorated in white, taupe and pale honey colours with gorgeous Tunisian stone bathrooms and a never-want-to-leave rain shower.
The icing on the cake is the spectacular rooftop bar, where more retractable glass and a huge wraparound terrace create an inside/outside space suspended between the Alps and the sea.
Although there’s a Miami-esk pool and cocooning spa, most guests choose to spend the day under the cabaña at the hotel’s beach club where a delicious classic ‘spaghetti alle vongole‚ is served between the wooden stalls and umbrella’s in pink and pistachio ice cream colours.
Big spender? Then charter the hotel’s yacht for a spin up to Portofino.
