The Vibe: An exceptional place, somewhere between a boutique bed&breakfast and a small luxury hotel.
The Area: In Montignoso, in the green foothills of the Apuaninan Alps, 5 kilometres from its own stunning beach club (free shuttle service) at famous Forte dei Marmi.
The DNA: After the success of their beach club, which is also home to one of Forte dei Marmi’s most popular fish restaurants, owners Ilda and Riccardo decided to turn a beautiful Italian family villa into a boutique hotel with a similar modern aesthetic, Villa Gilda Relax & Living. The tranquil sanctuary is furnished with great care and attention to detail, using a blend of Italian design, vintage elements and beautiful linens. Guests can slump into a beautiful designer sofa in the large living room, relax with a book in a lovely armchair next to the fireplace, or in the gardens with its fabulous pool and numerous terraces with stunning views.
Suite-Me-Up: There are only seven spacious suites in different sizes and lay-outs. All come with parquet floors, custom furnishings and accessories, pieces of art, Italian design and fresh flowers. The private terrace has sea views or gives direct access to the gardens. Room facilities include air conditioning, a TV, a minibar, a safe and coffee and tea making facilities. Marble bathrooms (Carrara is just a few minutes’ drive) come with walk-in rain showers. Two rooms can be combined into one big suite for a family. Selected rooms have fire places.
