Travelers' Choice
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.

This hotel is truly a gem. We traveled with our extended family, including my family with 3 kids under 5. Needless to say, small children in a luxury hotel are not the norm, but the staff went out of their way to make my kids feel welcome and cared for. They coordinated everything, from activities to meals to babysitters. Anything we needed, Aldo and Irina made happen (including mid-day pizzas and pastas for my famished crew). The hotel grounds are spectacular-- think a warm Tuscan villa with gardens and oversized suites that emphasizes the marble in the region with giant bathtubs and unique art. It is situated in a small town just north of Forte dei Marni (15 minutes). You will need to take a taxi, but the hotel will coordinate for you. If you are traveling with a group and considering a villa, I would really think about booking this 8-room hotel instead.

Il Bottaccio brings all the culture and warmth of Italy to life! Our stay was EXTRAORDINARY! We have traveled the world and this hotel and staff exceeded our wildest dreams! The staff has created a true Italian home for its customers…it is like visiting your Italian family. The rooms are spacious, clean and unique. The gardens are beautiful and inviting. The staff is truly the most amazing people whom you call family by the end of your stay. The service is impeccable, personal and gracious. The food is delicious and inviting and so ITALIAN!! Irina is truly one of the best concierge/managers we have ever encountered in our travels. She helped us from day trips to reservations to tour guides to helping us personally when one of our family fell ill. Nino, the chef/GM, is outstanding not only as the head chef but was always available to us for any need we had. His cooking school was AMAZING! Aldo, Alicia, Guilin and Marcia provided us with top-notch service and always with a smile. Katy and Aurora kept our rooms immaculate. The whole staff has a passion for their hotel and making sure every customer is happy and full and joyful. Starting the mornings in the garden sipping cafe to visiting the seashore to delicious culinary delights for dinner….Il Bottaccio is Italy at its very finest! Everyone should have the honor and privilege of staying at this hotel! We will be back again and again !!

A colleague and myself visited for two days on business and were very impressed indeed with Il Bottaccio as a destination. It is luxurious in every way and set in a very beautiful area, but it is also very relaxed, welcoming and understated at the same time. The perfect get-away for business or pleasure. Thank you to all the lovely staff.

It was a fantastic time in Italy. We wanted to visit Tuscany, and choosing Il Bottaccio made our vacation First Class! With the help of Aldo and Irina, it was possible to visit all the best restaurants with magnificent views without any effort. They care so much about how we will get to the places, helping us with the timetable and suggestions, not pushing anything, but genuinely wanting to benefit from the local point of view. We wouldn't be able to do it without them. The food in the restaurant was terrific, and the chef Nino Mosca is a lovely, charming gentleman. He cares about every visitor, how comfortable they are, what they would like, and how to make their vacation better. We want to return to Il Bottaccio as soon as possible and suggest it to everyone who would like to visit Tuscany and enjoy a unique experience and atmosphere of well-being, art, and serenity. Thank you so much to everyone in Il Bottaccio who help to made our stay a paradise .

What makes a great hotel great?? A beautiful property, a warm inviting staff and a memorable stay.! On these criteria, Il Bottaccio checks all of the boxes. This beautifully restored, updated and maintained properly in Montignoso is so unique in so many ways - from the indoor pool, to the amazing gardens to the wonderfully decorated rooms. It is like no other! But well beyond the physical beauty of the property, the staff were truly remarkable. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly by Arcada (who we found out later, was the new member of the team, having only arrived this past summer). She was welcoming, knowledgeable and most helpful. Obviously, a great person, well trained. We then met Aldo who was so thoughtful and helpful throughout our stay - winery tour suggestions, quarry tour coordination, restaurant bookings; you name it, he knew it!I At our first glass of wine, we met Nino who has been with the property from the beginning and was an absolutely incredible cook - he even offered to make things that were not on the menu. Fun, interesting, and engaging. Irina, a 14 year veteran, also helped with literally everything throughout from pre-arrival communication to helping with our next stop - she was intuitive, resourceful, responsive and went the extra mile each and every day to make sure we were well taken care of. And the pastries and breakfast chefs (unfortunately I don’t recall their names) provided the best croissants and breads ever - don’t skip those. (I hope I have the spellings of the staff’s names correct, but if not, my apologies). Most incredible, though, was how well this entire team worked together. They clearly enjoy what they do, live working with each other, and are committed to ensuring their guests have a wonderful experience. So yes, this was a most memorable stay. The area is beautiful and great to explore. Definitely a place to enjoy! We will be back!!

The staff..Aldo, Irina, Arcada, chef Nino..all all so attentive, helpful, kind, engaging making our stay all the more fantastic. Chef Nono creates the most amazing meals and is so accommodating to any preferences or issues you may have The breakfast is far none the best at any R&C. The croissants beat every single one in Paris!! Highly recommend Il Bottaccio for your next stay.
