“Weird location but charming after all”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

The hotel is far from the beach and close to the SS1 but overlooking the countryyard and is near the argentario, talamone and the many agriturismi of the zone..
The good points are:
The breakfast is wonderful
Friendly staff
The link to a network of nice excursions
The delfini beach

The negative points are
Far from the beach
It looks old... it must have been rehabilitated and the room was impeccable but the structure was probably built in the 80-90's

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

Reviewed 14 October 2007

We were guided to this hotel by a travel guide which rated it highly; rightly so.

Getting to the hotel (and anywhere else if you are staying at the hotel, for that matter) is a challenge. It's off the highway, but doesn't have a real exit--you have to ensure that you're in the correct lane and turn *really* fast.

No, it's not directly on the beach, and yes, that's a disappointment when you're in Talamone (We went hoping to explore an Italian fishing town, but nothing was open!). However, it's a gorgeous location, the tower of the sea is visible from your window, the smell of rosemary and lavendar mingle beautfiully with the smell of the ocean, and it's profoundly restful.

Try to eat at their restaurant, if only because food's not easy to come by in the area, and the restaurants don't begin serving until quite late--around 9pm.

Reviewed 20 August 2007

Overall the hotel, gardens and services are very nice; the only problem is that the hotel is far away from the beach, contrary to what you may be led to believe from the hotel web site and tour operators' publications.
The web site claims that the hotel is 100m from the sea with direct access via a pedestrian footpath.
Some tour operators (eg. Napoleon Viaggi) even claim that the hotel features an organised beach 150m by foot from the property.
The reality is that the hotel is nesteled on a small plain surrounded by the Osa river and a major dual carriageway road connecting Grosseto with Rome.
A narrow and poorly maintained footpath effectively brings you from the gardens to the point where the river meets the sea. Unfortunately this is just rocks dotted with litter, with no beach whatsoever and practically impossible to sunbathe or swim.
The hotel direction claims that up until 2005 a bridge actually bypassed the river connecting the hotel to a nearby beach. Unfortunately the bridge has now been dismantled and the only option available is to travel either by shuttle bus or own car to the Giannella beach, which is almost 10 km away from the hotel!
There are other beaches nearby (minimum 500 metres) but they do not features any services (sunbeds, bars, etc.) and are phisically impossible to reach on foot as the dual carriageway road separates them from the hotel.
In summary, if you are prepared to take a vehicle and travel 10/15 minutes each time you want to make it to the beach (€ 30 for sunbed and umbrella + € 5 for parking) then the hotel is OK.
if you want to walk to the beach then this is a very bad choice.



  • Liked — Excellent restaurant both food and service. Nice pool.
  • Disliked — The hotel location: impossible to go anywhere without a car. No beach/no ocean.
