What a surprise the hotel and town are. The rooms are so stylish and staff so helpful and obliging. Excellent blend of old palazzo updated with the best of both worlds. The added bonus of a beach club at Forte di Marmi, with all mod cons, was the icing on the cake. Whoever was at reception was always ready to help out with restaurants, train timetables, places to visit and what to do. Shamefully my Italian is poor but all the staff spoke English to help us out. Brilliant find and Pietrasanta is a treasur of art galleries and restaurants.
