Our tour of Tuscany ended with a couple of days at the beach and we chose San Vincenzo based on a suggestion from the owner of another hotel that we had stayed at during our trip. San Vincenzo will become a 'hot destination' in the next couple of years. A fabulous new harbour has just been completed and the powers that be are spending a lot of money on sprucing up the public spaces. The more established hotels have some catching up to do but the newer breed are clean, tidy and pretty good value for money. We stayed at Hotel Aurora based upon its ranking from a very limited number of establishments listed on TA. Located at the southern end of the strip amongst a clutch of similar properties it is new, clean and tidy. Simone the owner is friendly and has a smattering of English, enough to get the TV, safe and air con working at least. The rooms are small but all have balconies and the free parking and the use of the Hotel Lanterna's private beach are bonuses. My tip would be to shop around when you arrive as long as you are not in peak as there are some really good looking alternatives, many of which are closer to town which is a twenty minute stroll from the Aurora.
