How would you describe Villa Gilda in a nutshell?
Villa Gilda is a small luxury hotel located 5 kilometers from Forte dei Marmi between the beach and the hills of Tuscany. It’s a beautiful Italian family villa that was turned into a stylish boutique hotel with 7 suites, a sauna, heated swimming pool and beautiful gardens. We offer warm Italian hospitality combined with international five-star luxury amenities.
How would you describe the atmosphere at Villa Gilda?
It’s a very romantic atmosphere at the villa especially at night with these beautiful panoramic views but at the same time very elegant and classy during the day. Villa Gilda is like a boutique hotel but actually it is much more than that. We also own a renowned fish restaurant on the beach and one of the most beautiful beach clubs in Forte dei Marmi. With all of what we offer you could say that it’s the whole deal – incredible food, relaxation in style and luxurious living.
Who should stay at Villa Gilda and who should rather book something else?
In our opinion Villa Gilda is great for everyone. With the garden, pool and sauna there are enough options to relax and enjoy peace and quiet at the house. At the same time we are close enough to all the fun nightlife of Forte dei Marmi. Even for those looking for a base from where to go off into explorations of Tuscany, Villa Gilda is ideally located close to the Apuanian Alps and cities such as Pisa, Lucca, and Firenze. It is also right on the Tuscan coast with all its stunning beaches and small towns.
What do you particularly like about Forte dei Marmi?
This part of Tuscany used to be only frequented by Italians. Over the years more and more international tourists are starting to come here to explore real Italian vacationing. Forte dei Marmi is the most fashionable seaside town in Versilia. It not only has beautiful beaches but also exclusive boutiques, parks and gardens as well as great restaurants. The surrounding landscape is spectacular, truly harmonious in its beauty.
Our guests very much appreciate how much of an ideal starting point Villa Gilda is for any excursions, whether they are looking to explore the mountains or want to visit places of historical or cultural significance. There are so many beautiful villages here waiting to be explored. Pietrasanta is only eight kilometers from Villa Gilda. Viareggio has a boulevard with a shopping center and a factory where all the yachts are manufactured. And the most important places like Florence are only one hour from Villa Gilda.
