HOTEL BYRON is located in Forte dei Marmi on one of the pristine white-sand beaches that dot the Versilia coast along the Tyrrhenian Sea. One of the most famous vacation destinations in the world, the region has long attracted nobility, diplomats, businessmen, artists, and celebrities, who have built splendid homes amid the lush pinewoods and along the scenic beaches. Hotel Byron was originally one of these villas, commissioned during the first half of the 20th century by the charismatic and cosmopolitan José “Pepito” Caferino Canevaro, Duke of Zoagli, as a spot for family and friends to spend their holidays. Today, this charming seaside retreat continues to welcome visitors from around the world who seek refined accommodations amid relaxed surroundings. Individually decorated with soothing colors, quality linens, and elegant furnishings, the rooms overlook either the sea or the hotel’s private garden with a view of the Apuan Alps in the distance.
Hardwood floors, marble accented bathrooms, direct-line photos, satellite TV, and minibar are just a few of the additional amenities. Apart from the beauty of its beaches, gardens, and old town, Forte dei Marmi is also known for its elegance and sophistication: its shops and haute couture boutiques are as much of a magnet for tourists as the nearby historic cities of Florence, Pisa, and Arezzo, and its bars and restaurants attract bon vivants from around the globe. Of course, you don’t have to leave the property for a bit of dolce vita: The onsite bar serves beer, wine, and cocktails to match its convivial atmosphere, and in the Michelin-starred La Magnolia restaurant, Chef Cristoforo Trapani creates seasonally changing regional specialties with a personal touch, using only the freshest ingredients from local producers. Enjoy dinner inside, by the pool, or on the expansive terrace, accompanied by top-notch service and the finest wines.
