Locanda al Colle Hotel, Camaiore
No reception, no concierge, not even room numbers – but 12 rooms and suites decorated in impeccable style, and bearing resonant names such as "Aurora," "Orrizonte," or "Cipresso." The venue is surrounded by a manicured garden complete with pool. Characteristic of the interior design is its closely coordinated arrangement of contemporary sculptures, unique lamps, stacks of tour guides and coffee-table books, bouquets of fresh roses, and sensuous scents. Altogether elegant and full of character. The Locanda al Colle hardly qualifies for the moniker "insider tip." In fact, this neat B&B designed by Riccardo Barsottelli has become well-known among the community of individual holidaymakers, fans of Forte dei Marmi, and professional travellers. This explains why guests no longer book at their convenience, but cautiously inquire instead whether there is any weekend at all that is not fully booked yet.

Very personal, attentive and warm. Riccardo's charm is irresistible. You feel immediately at home, as if you were visiting a close friend.
