The staff were polite and courteous & the very small garden was relaxing (except for when motorbikes roared up the adjoining lane) BUT : - the bed in our suite was rock hard & we came home with bad backs. We even considered sleeping on the floor one night to try & get a good night's sleep. - the suite...

Excellent! Relays & Chateaux Quality! Great Restaurant! We arrived late, very late in the evening, requested a room, and there was only one left, their best room, the room they use to sell themselves in revues and internet. The most extraordinary room i have ever stayed in. This was in 2011.

The hotel is tucked away in the village and therefore very quiet. The grounds contain a small stream and some excellent sculpture. We had a junior suite which was very comfortable & experienced no issues with water pressure or lack of hot water. The food was excellent. My wife is vegetarian and eats no meat or fish. The chef kindly...

As a rule if I am disappointed with a hotel I will not make a comment but this one I could not let go without a comment. From the minute you walk into the place you know its all about the money. The staff is wonderful, the only good thing. We were two couples traveling for a special trip. We...

We selected this hotel based on internet reviews and the Relais & Chateau association, and booked our room for a few days.. After staying at a renovated castle we were most interested in staying at this former water mill. It's a bit off the beaten path in a fairly nondescript area. The hotel has a charm from the outside, as...

Il Bottacio is a five star Relais Chateau property with three star management – and I hesitate to describe it that way because we’ve had some great service in three star hotels. First, in spite of the fact that they have a strict cancellation policy (5 day 100% penalty), they reneged on a dinner reservation we had made for poolside...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
