I heve been at Gallia Palace hotel both in June and July 2005. I spent there some wonderful days in an atmosphere of 'good quality', peace and tranquillity.
The hotel, from which you have a fine view on the bay, has a very simple structure. It's a three floors buiding, a clear example of the architecture of the sixties with large halls, wide glass-doors and windows, elegant living-rooms.
The bed-rooms are furnished in a very good taste, are clean and confortable.
The staff (most of them are young) is very polite and professional, always ready to satisfy all your needs or necessities.
The restaurant is 'at the top': situated in a 'veranda' near the garden, you can eat each kind of Italian dishes prepared with the best Italian products such as olive-oil, and wines.
The hotel has a private beach: it's wide, with all comforts; you can practice all aquatic sport, including rowing-boats and sailing-boats.On the beach there is also a nice pagoda with a bar and a restaurant.
The hotel is plunged in the nature, surrounded by hills and fields of sunflowers where you can have pleasant walks, riding a mountain-bike or playing 'golf'; if you like, there is also a POLO field.
Gallia Palace Hotel has been for me also the starting-point to discover Tuscany: in fact, in the neighbourhood of Punta Ala you can visit medieval towns rich of monuments and art, archaeological sites, countries with cypresses, olive-trees and vines.
Few words for the prices of the hotel which I consider honest and completely in keeping with the services.
For what I described above, it was for me a real unforgetable holiday.
