Il Bottaccio is an elegant hotel and a superb restaurant created around a seventeenth century water-powered olive mill transformed into an oasis of refinement and serenity. This aristocratic rural retreat stands isolated in the hills of Montignoso, enjoying both the reflection of the Mediterranean Sea and the peace of Apuanian Alps. The village is overlooked by the impressive ruins of the Aghinolfi Castle, masters of this county in 1202. The Hospitality provided by the Bottaccio to its gourmand travellers matches the quality of its cuisine. The freedom of the guests and the respect for their habits and privacy is paramount. Large spaces with open views on the greenery complement the very large private suites, whose name is different for each one of them, as well as different is the character of the atmosphere. These are spacious, individually furnished and cared for in every minute detail. The 18th century pieces dotted in the suites sensually blend with prestigious contemporary furnishing. Il Bottaccio successfully blends the charm of a country mansion with the pleasure of refined catering and the luxury of absolute peace.

A wonderful place with a magical energy and great service / attention to detail. We stayed here for 2 nights and also brought our dog along, who had plenty of space to run around in the hotel’s gardens. The rooms are spacious , the food is excellent and the staff are polite and knowledgable. Everyone goes the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable and good service is definitely a priority here. We used the spa which we had to book a day ahead and it was made private for us for the hour we used it. There’s a hammam and a rain shower with effects. No pool/ hot tub but that’s ok because our room had a spectacular bathtub already. The only very small things I’d change is the poor noise insulation in the room (I could hear the neighbours every time they went in/out of their room and the loud church bells woke me up every day at 7am) and the lack of bins in the rooms/ hotel grounds (especially useful when you’re with a dog!). These two things are very small however and didn’t take away from the wonderful experience we had. I felt at home the entire time and would like to thank the lovely staff for their attention and kindness.

Can't say enough about this beautiful , special Chateau with gorgeous gardens and rooms . Not only are the rooms each unique, special and spacious but the people really make the experience top notch. Irina, Aldo, Nino, Julio, Paulo all went out of their way and over the top to make this a very personal experience that made you feel like you were visiting and staying in their home. You forgot that you were in a hotel. The restaurant should have a Michelin star it was so flavorful with local ingredients and recipes. If you can do the cooking class we highly recommend it as well. Thank you for such an unbelievable warm experience ! Do not hesitate to book here today!!

This is a wonderful small hotel, with magnificent art and beautiful objects everywhere. The welcome is warn, thoughtful and friendly and one is plunged into a little piece of heaven. Such food as we had was delicious and beautifully presented. Everything is in the best taste and has a style which only the Italians can produce. Maybe a location from which to visit the many surrounding attractions - but everyone should be fortunate enough to spend at least one night there
