An art-filled Relais & Châteaux boutique
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Il Bottaccio is an exclusive boutique art hotel in Tuscany. An intimate retreat for lovers of privacy, at the foot of the green hills of Forte dei Marmi, and since 1988, a maison Relais & Chateaux. Il Bottaccio was transformed into a boutique 5-star hotel in Tuscany as a result of the careful restoration of the old XVIIIth century water mill. Just minutes away from the glitz and glamour of Forte dei Marmi, Il Bottaccio is the most strategic point in the region to satisfy both a desire for tranquillity and a hunger for culture. Lucca and Pisa are nearby, as are the Cinque Terre, Lunigiana and Torre del Lago with its Puccini Festival. Only a short distance away lies Pietrasanta, a city of art with ancient marble and contemporary sculptors, and more recently home to artists like Moore and Botero.
