Relais Vedetta Description

Relais Vedetta provides luxurious accommodation in the old village of Scarlino, 5 minutes' drive from the sea. Rooms have iPod docking stations (your preferred music dowloaded if you don't bring yourself), LCD Sky TV and pillow menus.

You will be surrounded by beautiful countryside of Tuscany's Maremma area, including woods and olive groves. Owner and host Anna Barberini lived in 23 cities in Italy and travelled extensively abroad to return here to her roots and share the magic of this site with you. Relais Vedetta features a panoramic swimming pool overlooking the Gulf of Follonica from Punta Ala to Piombino in front of the island of Elba.

Rooms are actually (junior) suites of about 35m2 and are quiet, well-equipped and meticulously designed. They have free Wi-Fi and natural stone bathrooms and offer fantastic sea, country and sky views. Each suite is decicated to a character the "Domitissa" (mistress of the house/countess) was told as a child. An intruiging symbiose of the old and the new. Three rooms are located in the Vedetta Townhouse, the former Barberini residence in the medieval town centre of Scarlino. 

Breakfast consists of homemade produce and specialities from the Maremma region and is served on the porch until late morning. Biscuits and fruit are always available in the lounge. From May to September in the evenings, chef Laura Pacentini offers a carefully prepared refreshment service, and once a week a gourmet sampling menu of local fish and meat accompanied by local DOC wines.

New are the 7 "glamping" lodges in the olive yard below the Relais main building with their own en-suite bathroom with a large glass shower cabin, toiletry set and professional hair-dryer with diffuser. The tents have independent air conditioning/heating for both winter and summer use, a 32" HD TV with decoder for international channels and telephone linked with the Relais Vedetta reception. Breathtaking views can be had from the verandas, either towards the Mediterranean or the hills and town.
