Hotel Versilia: luxurious resort hotel on the beach in Tuscany

Suite in Hotel Versiliahotel versilia

When people think of a holiday in Tuscany, they usually think only of the Chianti area, inland near Siena. However, Tuscany does have beaches, notably in the northern part around Versilia and Viareggio, which are closer to Pisa and Lucca. But they’re not that far from Florence. Why not combine a beach holiday with history, culture and wine (Chianti)?

Consider staying at the Hotel Versilia, one of the design hotels run by the UNA Group. Although I usually do not like to stay in chain hotels, in the past decade in Europe and Asia, I’ve been impressed by the interior decor and service in places run by small chain hotel groups such as UNA whose emphasis is providing guests an experience that goes beyond the standard chain look-and-feel (check out their hotel in Florence). Hotel Versilia has a roof garden bar, tennis courts, and a 25 meter swimming pool. If you are staying with your family, they also have apartments.
