Villa Grey is very special. It's a beautiful boutique hotel - well, a beautifully renovated, gorgeous old hotel overlooking the Mediterranean. Our room was nicely appointed, very quiet and of adequate size (quite a good size for an italian hotel room). It had two large double-glazed windows / doors opening onto our full- width balcony. It was certainly worth paying a bit extra for a sea view room. Just being able to sit out on your own balcony having a drink and staring into the distance was wonderful. There's a beautiful garden at the rear where breakfast is served or where you can sit or lie around later in the day.
We were there a bit before the summer madness and the weather was unseasonably cool. So we didn't use the beach. But the Villa Grey beach bar, bales and facilities all looked great.
But the best thing was the staff. Sara, Giada, Abdul, Claudio and Phillipe were all wonderful; friendly, helpful and attentive. We loved Phillipe. And his accent. Nothing was ever a problem. All our restaurant enquiries and bookings were done for us and the hotel car took us and picked us up from wherever we went. (Bistro, Lorenzo and Tre Stelle were all brilliant for dinner as indicated by the Trip Advisor reviews)
The hotel is 1.5Km from the centre of town which wasn't a down-side at all. We found that riding the hotel bikes into town was the way to go. No problem parking that way and the city is so flat and bike-friendly it made it very enjoyable.
We adored Forte Dei Marmi. its a gorgeous slow-paced town: A beautiful mix of St Tropez, Beverley Hills and Australia's Gold Coast (without the bogans and tack). But we particularly loved Villa Grey.
