HOTEL BYRON – RICH IN HISTORY, CONTEMPORARY IN STYLE
Located in Forte dei Marmi, a Tuscan seaside resort long favoured by aristocrats and celebrities, Hotel Byron is an authentic Italian villa that has been tastefully converted into an intimate luxury hotel.
Set into manicured gardens with a large pool and inviting sun decks, it offers a restful retreat and with just 26 rooms, one might feel one is in one’s own private holiday home. Rooms and suites enjoy sea or garden views and each is individually decorated in calming colours and furnished in classical style.
Its position, just across the road from a wide, sandy beach and a short stroll from the charming old town, with its designer boutiques, eclectic bars, restaurants and concert venues, is ideal for a relaxed break by the seaside.
Sit on your private terrace and watch yachts bobbing out at sea, find a quiet spot in the gardens, or borrow one of the hotel’s bikes for a ride down the town’s tree lined avenues, admiring the graceful villas.
Dining at the hotel’s Michelin-starred La Magnolia, is a must. The menu changes regularly but focuses on Tuscan specialties, made with local ingredients and presented with flair.
When you’ve had your fill of shopping and beaching, there are tennis courts, riding and gold courses nearby. Viareggio, Lucca and Florence can also easily be visited for a day trip.
