Really lovely place to stay, it had to be the most comfortable nights sleep I had in Italy, very comfortable beds crisp clean linen, fluffy ample good quality towels. The room was spotlessly clean and every day they made bed, cleaned the room if it was free when the cleaner did her morning rounds. Each room has stunning art work and is simply but stylishly decorated. The gardens have a few loungers and everything is immaculately kept. Breakfast was a great selection of pastries, fruit, yoghurts etc. again some of the best I had in Italy. The hotel is a good 5- 10 mins drive to downtown Viareggio and you do need a car as its not walkable to the beach, however the trade off is its much better value for money and far superior quality. There is a pizzeria and restaurant down the road so you can eat locally if you don't want to head back into town. We spent an evening drinking beer and eating take out pizza in the garden whilst playing football with the kids so it was a bit more flexible. The owners are lovely friendly but have limited English and don't have card machine so pay in cash.
Feels more like a boutique hotel a b&b understates it somewhat
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Tower of Art is an old villa with turret, in late-Liberty style, completely restored. Surrounded by gardens is provided with an eight cars capable parking. The six large rooms are inspired by scenes and characters of Dante's Hell (Paolo and Francesca, Bertrand de Born, Malebranche, Count Ugolino, Rain of Fire, Centauri) and they contain, inspired to these themes, a paintings collection from Luisa Petruni Cellai.

The rooms are equipped with air conditioning, LCD TV, safe and bathroom with shower. Starting from Summer 2014, breakfast won't be served anymore; however, our kind customer could use our common kitchen with limitation. Coffee Bar / Restaurant & Supermarket surround the Bed-No-Breakfast so we don't expect any issue for our Customers.
