An Art Nouveau villa in the town of Forte dei Marmi overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea
Hotel Byron was originally the private residence of the Duke of Zoagli and a playground for European aristocracy.
High-society hideaway with a contemporary style
Aside from the beauty of its beaches, gardens and old town, Forte dei Marmi is also well-known for its elegance and sophistication: the stylish shops and high-end boutiques whilst the many chic bars and restaurants have played host to the world’s biggest stars, a cornerstone of Italy’s ‘dolce vita’ since the 1960s.
Hotel Byron invites guests to enjoy both the simple and the sophisticated pleasures in life: breakfasts by the pool, picnics on the beach and bike rides around Forte dei Marmi, as well as haute cuisine at the Michelin-starred La Magnolia, beautiful golf courses and easy access to the region’s historic and culturally-rich towns and villages.
The 29 guestrooms warm Tuscan colors and classic marble bathrooms are brought up to date with contemporary touches.
My personal tip
Hiking in the Apuan Alps and discover Michelangelo’s white marble quarries. It’s like walking into a time warp.
My favourite room
A junior suite, cozy and stylish, with its contemporary design overlooking the Mediterranean Sea
