Palazzo Visdomini expertly combines a certain homely charm with the elegant comfort of the hotel. The stately mansion was built in the 19th century by the Florentine aristocratic Visdomini family. This was to enable the family to have a modest summer house in the town that has been an important centre for artistic preparation of marble since the time of Micheangelo.
With its location in the middle of Pietrasanta's historic centre, Palazzo Visdomini is an obvious choice for those who want to sample this lovely town from its best angle. The building has now been restored and converted to receive a small number of guests in splendid suite rooms. Fittingly enough they have been named after great artists and statesmen who have visited or worked in the town.
The sumptuous bedrooms are to a large extent furnished with the original furniture from the Visdomini days supplemented by a number of antiques from the 18th century.
The bedrooms all have en suite bathroom, mini bar, air conditioning, satellite TV, safe deposit box and tea and coffee making facilities. In all the rooms two extra beds made up in the sofa bed in the sitting room at no extra charge.
There is a swimming pool by the house which is open for guests between 15 May and 15 October.
