Versilia remains among the most popular of Tuscan seaside destinations on the Tyrrhenian. The Villa is set in Marina di Pietrasanta, an area of Forte dei Marmi on the South side. Marina di Pietrasanta was built around a jetty that had been originally assembled during the sixteenth century to ship Apuan marble. Since 1788, this historical feature has been sheltered by an outpost built by Leopoldo I. The outpost still exists today and is visible from the middle of Garibaldi Square.
Virtually every European noble, a number of diplomats, businessmen, artists and V.I.P.s have had their bautiful villas protected by the greenery of the local pinewoods. Undoubtedly, they also chose the area for its sandy beaches, ideal for holidays, relaxtion, and old- fashioned fun on the beach. Forte dei Marmi, just five minutes away, has also had its share of of noble visitors. This is an area which is arguably the most famous among all chic, Italian sea locations. Its night life, scents of the sea, and its own people are inspirations to live “La Dolce Vita,” the sweet life. Times have changed dramatically since Agnelli walked the beach-town streets of Forte dei Marmi, but people like him will never cease to take a stroll on the beaches of a Versilian town like this.
