At 150 m above sea level, Poggio La Forcola is home to the Relais Vedetta, offering guests spectacular views over the Gulf of Follonica. The scenery is typical of the Maremma region: 4 km from Scarlino, the Relais is surrounded by some 15 hectares of unspoilt woodland and a large olive grove belonging to the hotel.
An ancient residence of the Barberini family, Relais Vedetta preserves the memory of the personages that inhabited it in the past. Welcoming yet reserved, this boutique hotel couples the peacefulness of nature with the call of the sea, always before the eyes of guests: from breakfast on the patio to cocktails at sunset, the spectacular view of the Gulf of Follonica will accompany your vacation. The beautiful pool also faces the sea, offering romantic sunsets over the Tuscan Archipelago.
Painstaking renovation work has preserved the antique ceilings in tile and wood, a comforting haven in which the creative genius of the lady of the house has been given full rein: each suite tells a story, made of chests and old suitcases, leather sofas and appealing dormeuses, desks from the 19th century and old typewriters. Large and welcoming, rooms are equipped with all modern comforts: king-size beds, air conditioning, complimentary Wi-Fi connection, satellite TV with SKY channels, safe, kettle with an assortment of herbal teas, bathrobe, and olive-oil based complimentary toiletries.
The breakfast is served until midday and offers organic produce from local farms, cakes and biscuits made in the hotel and special foods for guests with allergies or dietary requirements (on request). In the living room of the villa the guests of the resort can daily enjoy fresh fruit, flavored water and house wine.
