About us

Il Bottaccio is in an ideal position in Tuscany at the foot of the green hills of Forte dei Marmi, very close to Pietrasanta, Lucca, Pisa and the Cinque Terre.

A Relais & Chateaux Maison since 1988, Il Bottaccio is an exclusive boutique hotel, a home for friends, an intimate refuge for those who love art and nature where each guest’s stay is tailor-made.

But it is in the coolness of the Bottaccio garden that the luxury of tranquility reaches its excellence. Nino Mosca’s cuisine creates an authentic alchemy between the freshest fish and the fruits of the surrounding woods, and where local excellence is valued.

Water, art and marble: the characteristic signs of Bottaccio.
The sea of ​​Versilia, torrents and streams that descended from the Apuan Alps to move the big wheel that can still be admired in the garden today.

The marble quarries where Michelangelo chose the ‘white gold’ which he then transformed into his immortal works. Where contemporary artists have found the raw material for the creations which today are reflected in the water of a swimming pool in the center of a large restaurant room, where the olives were once harvested.

The D’Anna couple, gallery owners, patrons and owners of a private English college, have created a family residence at Bottaccio and, as they like to point out, a hotel for those who don’t like hotels.

Il Bottaccio is the ideal place to visit Lucca and Pisa, the Cinque Terre, Lunigiana and Torre del Lago with its Puccini Festival, which every year renews the magic of the great Maestro’s works. Pietrasanta is one step away: a city of art where, among ancient and modern marbles, international artists have chosen their residence as Moore and Botero had already done.
