The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful garden with plenty of trees and flowers which gives you a relaxed holiday feeling. The room was on the 2nd floor and was amazing ! The location is good if you are travelling by car – it’s 300 meters from the beach but you’d have to walk a bit further to find restaurants (approx. 10 – 15 minutes). The restaurants in teh area serve the traditional pasta and pizza but the nicer restaurants by the beach also serve delicious seafood. For a snack I would definitely recommend a focacceria (I think it was even open during the siesta hours..) close by called The wall (by the piazza ronchi). Where they served delicious focaccias! The beach is great and you can rent a chair and umbrella or use the public beach. There’s a train station in Massa Centro which is a good 10-15 minutes away by taxi (cost around 15-20 EUR). The staff at the hotel are very helpful and friendly and helped us with train times and bike routes to Massa Centro. There are also bikes that can be borrowed.
The hotels served a buffet breakfast and you could sit in the nice garden. However the breakfast wasn’t the best I’ve tried. I missed some fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, brown bread and freshly squeezed juice. They did have some nice pastries though.
As mentioned the location of the hotel is good if you have a car. If you however is travelling around by train like me and my husband it is not much around the hotel. The beach is close but not many restaurants close by. I would recommend the nice walk to Massa beach where there are some restaurants .We also visited Massa Centro one day which was a nice town but we couldn’t find many restaurants. We took the train from Massa train station to Florence (ca 2 hrs. ) but watch out for pick pockets by the station! A great hotel if you’re looking for a relaxing holiday.
