You can tell a hotel is out of the ordinary or special, especially a simple B & B, when on booking it offers you a selection of pillows to choose from: goose-feathers, perhaps? Maybe aloe scented or anallergic. What kind of music are you into? Classical, meditation, world music?
Even the room names show a different approach to things. No simple doubles or singles here. What you get is the Unstoppable Explorer, The upstanding Maremman Gentleman, The Young Lady of Good Family, etc. There are six rooms in all with such exotic sounding names (see rooms for more details).
It’s that sort of attention to detail and quirkiness that makes the Relais Vedetta special. Saying it is a “simple” b & b, as we did at the beginning, however, is doing it a bit of a disservice. Simple perhaps, in the sense of a friendly atmosphere and that fresh country style welcome, where what you see is what you get.
But this particular b & b is also a luxury home from home done up with superb style by the Barberini family, one of the historic families of the region. That means mixed in with the modern and design aspects of the house, you get family heirlooms from way back.
To all this you can add a position comfortably nestled on top of a panoramic hill with stunning views of the Gulf of Follonica (all of it) - from Elba to the Argentario peninsula in southern Tuscany.
This means countryside mixed in with the sea added to the mix of great hospitality, history and no end of charm in one of Italy's most charismatic regions.
The unstoppable EXPLORER
Large room with king-size bed, bathroom a pleasant surprise: a heavy stone seems to jut out from the rock of which it was hewn and hold the washbasin, the ample tub resembles a pebbled river. From the shower you have an incomparable view of the woods of Monte D’Alma.
The Fickle PRIMA DONNA
Intimate, cosy, refined suite. The modern design of the bergère, in velvet polka-dots, pairs with the dormeuse in front of the large window that overlooks the medieval village of Scarlino, while another window looks out onto the sea framed by ancient cedars.
The upstanding Maremman Gentleman
Spacious suite with a king-sized bed and leather armchairs and sofa, drapes of brown silk carry along the theme of earthy browns and blues of sea and sky as they blend on the horizon.
The Flirtatious Libertine
Ample bed, measuring 2 meters by 2 meters, is framed by a large number of soft feather cushions and the vintage divan sits against the original bare brick wall. Behind two crystal panels the large, round mosaic bathtub holds a promise of relaxing bubble baths.
The Young Lady of Good Family
Warm summer colours, a soft yellow leather sofa and silk curtains with hints of orange. This suite is on the ground floor and looks onto the villa’s garden, the one that faces the sea. The large picture windows catch the early morning rays and the window in front of the king-sized bed lets you gaze out over the peaceful Maremman vegetation as you lay on your big soft feather pillows listening to nature awaken.
