Hotel Club i Pini - Residenza D'Epoca
Ranked #6 of 50 Hotels in Lido Di Camaiore
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 22, 2012

I've just come back from a five day stay in the Hotel Club I Pini. I had the best five days stay in a hotel ever. The owners and staff could not do enough for you and made my stay even more special. The hotel has a lovely family feel to it and its like a home from home but in beautiful surroundings. I highly recommend this hotel and dare anyone not to have a wonderful experience.

The club-hotel is located on a quiet street and has a nice garden and a small parking.
It’s a family run business with its own passionate creative type. I felt as if had come to stay with my best friends.
The villa belonged to a famous painter, ceramicist, graphic artist of Art Nouveau and has lost none of its original charm. The ground floor has lounge with wine cabinets, a bar that serves very good coffee, and a room for breakfast. The rooms are renovated and have everything for comfortable stay.
The hotel has a restaurant where a charming signora creates delicious dishes of the authentic Tuscan kitchen. You can learn her recipes visiting her cooking classes which I liked very much. The dinners in the garden provide a feast for the eyes and stomach.
For sightseeing Viareggio has nothing much too see, but I advise to go to Pisa and Lucca which are very close.
PS: The photos on the hotel website are true.

We decided to stay here based on the reviews and the photos and it turned out to be the best of the five hotels we stayed at while on vacation in Italy. This large villa converted to a hotel has strong character, beautiful floral grounds and atmospheric rooms. We felt as if we were visiting close friends. Nicolo and Cesare, the two young gentlemen who operate the hotel, are charming, friendly and leap at the opportunity to be of assistance and make your stay the best it can be. The rest of the staff is cut from the same cloth. You can't ask for better service. The energy that Cesare and Nicolo exhibit is amazing as they tend to everyone's needs. The atmosphere that they and the villa (this is more than a hotel) create caused all the guests during our visit to be in a very congenial mood--great times during pre-dinner drinks and during dinner. And the dinners!! Wow, appetizers, first, second courses, desserts, great wines. Each day there is a new menu with great selections in first course pastas, and second course seafood, or meat or vegetarian dishes. AND the dinners were outside in the gardens under canopies with music in the background. Normally we would go to a variety of places to check out the dining scene but we just didn't want to leave this place. There were days when all I could think about was getting back to the terrific gardens having a drink and anticipating the great dinner that I knew I would have. The room that we had contained a small bathroom but, just go with the flow, and make a story out of it when you get home. Also ask for a room with a balcony. Few are available but what a treat to sit out on the balcony overlooking the gardens. Breakfasts offer a wide variety with great service and (finally in Italy where I expected great coffee) delicious coffee. In addition to being a great place to stay the hotel is located less than ten minutes from a magnificent beach with a beautiful boardwalk loaded with good shopping, restaurants and bars. The town of Camaiore is clean, quiet and safe. Strolling on the boardwalk on a Sunday with the residents as well as tourists makes you feel part of the community. In every respect this hotel was a great find and as other reviewers have mentioned it is a place where we would come back to over and over again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony. Bathrooms are small (at least ours was) so if you have special needs...

From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome. The service was personal, friendly and extremely obliging. The hotel is the house of a famous Tuscan painter, Galileo Chini and is owned by the artists family as I understand. Its been run by the current hotel proprietors for years. The food was among the best we had in 2 weeks in Tuscany and was very reasonably priced. Dinner consisted of a four course meal in the beautifully landscaped garden.

It seemed the two brothers running the hotel couldn't do enough to ensure we were comfortable and catered for, eg putting unfinished wine in the fridge for us for the following day, offering to drive us in country (as we hadn't a car).

All in all the hotel was pretty faultless. The only minor criticism was the lack of a mini bar, but this was no major issue as the bar downstairs was welcoming and well appointed.

Thank you.

Room Tip: The former artists studio is overlooking the front garden, very quiet and very comfortable.

The service we received from Claudio and Cesare who are brothers operating the hotel was excellent. We stayed here 3 years ago when there father ran the hotel, and nothing has changed.

The dinners are fabulous, and there is a fantastic selection of wines.

The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, and as this is a historic residence many of the amenities are older but very charming with a beautiful garden setting for both breakfast and dinners.

The location to Lucca, Cinque Terra, Carrera and Pisa is great as everything is within 45 minutes of the hotel.

The beaches are 2 blocks away where you are able to rent beach chairs and umbrella's at a discount through the hotel.

Again the best part about staying at this historic residence is the service you will receive from Claudio, Cesare and the rest of the staff.

Thank You!

If you're looking for a quiet, friendly and with a touch of class, this is the place to book.
The hotel is a walk away from the main street. Services are at the highest level you can expect, making you feel at home. Typical Tuscan hospitality that makes you want to stay forever!
Highly recommended if in the area or if planning a holiday here.
