Grand Hotel Villa Parisi

Design hotel in Castiglioncello

With its chic cream facade and racing-green wooden shutters, this 1905 clifftop villa wouldn't look amiss in a glossy design mag. Refined elegance holds sway inside, and most of the rooms have sea views; some even have private balconies. You won't be spending much time in your room, though, as every guest gravitates to the magnificent sea-facing terrace and pool.

On weekends, the hotel often hosts weddings – it can be a bit noisy at these times.
