The hotel is situated right next to the sea, in the pine forest. Moreover, the hotel has its own beach with all the equipment. We were given sunbeds, so we did not need to hurry to take place every day. The breakfast offered a good choice and we were having it looking at the sea. Staff at the beach and... More

Very nice, little hotel, beautiful location on the sea, convenient free parking. The only negative point is the size of the double room and it is might be better to book for a bigger room. Also, the acoustic isolation between a room and another one is not very good. So when you book make sure you do not have a... More

We have spent 2 nights at Bussola and it was pretty enough to get a clear idea about the hotel and the town. In 2 words: the hotel and Punta Ala are fantastic for the calm beach vacations if you really prefer to spend all the day on the beach with a breaks for the afternoon sleep and seaside walks... More

Interesting location adjacent to the narrow beach with dark sand (beach facilities extra paid on top of accommodation). Beach staff very helpful. Reception adequate and fast acting. Room very clean. The walls between the rooms seem to be made of drywall what becomes an issue in case you have noisy neighbour. Breakfast OK with assistance of a very friendly and... More

We had two nights in La Bussola and wished that we could have stayed a little longer. We had the family room and enjoyed great service from Tina in the restaurant that gave our stay that little extra touch. Beside the obvious beach-life you have a fantastic stable/ranch with horses in all sizes. A short walk to Punta Ala and... More

I was looking for somewhere for a five night restful and relaxing break. La Bussola was the perfect choice. The Hotel sits surrounded by pine trees just behind Punta Ala's long, sandy beach. The design of the hotel is really unique. The rooms aren't large but are wonderfully organised with every convenience, large very comfotable beds, great linen and attention... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This is La Bussola : the privilege of feeling authentic emotions in the context of absolute freedom! We proudly present you La Bussola Hotel "La Bussola" :a four-star hotel with a sea-view which is situated in the heart of Toscana, the land of the Etruscans. In the charming bay of Punta Ala facing a limpid (repeatedly awarded with the "Bandiera Blu" ) and tranquil sea, you'll be the guests of our hotel and our splendid private beach equipped with all the necessary services. From there you'll be able to see all the isles of the Tuscan Archipelago - from Elba to Gorgona - seven pearls which fell from Venus's necklace, according to the legend, while she was swimming in the transparent water of the Mediterranean sea. There'll always be our attentive and gentile staff at your disposal who will provide you with soft and strong drinks and cold dished directly under your sun-umbrella in order to satisfy any of your needs. Behind our hotel there're a green pine-forest and the mediterranean scrub, four fields for five-a-side football and tennis, a minigolf area, a bar and a big safeguarded parking. All of it is on the territory of our property of 70.000 mq. Within a 200 m distance there're a polo and a horse-riding fields, a sailing school and a bit farther there's a golf-club, our good business partner, which will invite you to admire one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Even our dishes that are served in our restaurant with a panoramic sea view, are prepared with an excellent accuracy in order to provide our guests with variety and quality united with the tradition and abundance of tastes. Our chef selects daily fresh genuine ingredients to prepare the dishes according to the tradition of Maremma, the Mediterranean area and the whole world, and combines them with a wide range of quality wines, Italian and foreign ones, which are being stored in our incredible subterranean wine cellar where you can choose out of 200 labels and 2000 bottles. Not only in summer but also in spring, in autumn and in winter can you appretiate the cordiality of the Damiani family and their staff who will make your vacation become a true bloom of emotions. We're waiting for you! ... more   less
