Gallia Palace Hotel in Punta Ala, Italy

More than 30 years ago, Gallia Palace Hotel in Punta Ala was the first Italian resort to be courted by Relais & Chateaux to become part of its portfolio of international luxury properties. Today the Tuscan retreat, with its swinging-60s vibe, continues to amaze its guests with spellbinding vistas, envious seaside location and sublime amenities. Situated on its own private beach, this two-story hideaway houses just 81 rooms boasting traditional Tuscan style. Jutting balconies allow guests to marvel at the ocean or park, both within short reach. The hotel offers a sumptuous dining experience, from regional fare to buffet-style, beachfront dining. Weekends are usually filled with dancing and live music. Guests tend to congregate at the piano bar on most evenings, where the mixologist shakes things up with his signature concoctions.

As for recreation, look no further than the hotel's private tennis courts or resident-style swimming pool. There are also sailing instructions, water skiing and plenty of windsurfing opportunities. The health and beauty center offers an array of spa treatments as well as sauna and steam rooms. Consider exploring the small villages and local towns nearby. Create your own wine tasting adventure by motoring through the Tuscan hills stopping at local vineyards and out-of-the-way ristorantes. Day tripping is also an option that could lead you to either Florence, should you venture north, or Rome, if you take the road heading south. Of course you could stay perfectly put at Gallia Palace Hotel and enjoy your surroundings on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea.

South of Pisa in Punta Ala. A short bus ride from Follonica train station or taxi ride from train station. Is a gem of a hotel, 3 stories high, surrounded by tall Italian stone pine trees, and yet a few minutes walk from the beach. A nature retreat surrounded by statuesque swaying greenery (stone pine trees) and yet is also a beach resort in warmer summer. There’s also a welcoming large swimming pool one can lounge around. There are also bicycles so one can bike to the marina, or on green paths, along the beach road. Our hotel room was enormous, especially for Europe. Ours faced a forest, had a large balcony with tables and chairs. The bathroom was also spacious with a long Carrera marble like shower and bidet, and soft white towels and robes. The room had 2 large closets, a chest of drawers, a long desk, sitting chair and desk chair, a personal safe, bookcase and shelves. It was a joy to stay here for a week, and from this oasis of a resort launch our day trips to Sienna, Pisa, Livorno, etc... if we had more time we would have added Volterra, San Gimiano. The hotel is part of the Relais & Châteaux group of luxury hotels and it lives up to that designation. This hotel was an oasis for us for a week this April. We came for a Passover retreat, run by EJ Kosher events for this week. The staff was wonderful, friendly informative, helpful, rejuvenating. Ginerva at the front desk helped us with traveling logistics, and Gigi and all the wait staff made our stay most memorable. Note for traveling to Rome. We came by train from Rome to Follonica station. We returned to Rome by private taxi. One taxi service charged 350 euros to Rome, and another 440 euros. So be aware and book early as there were only a handful of taxi drivers in April.

We stayed at the Gallia Palace in July and we had a wonderful time! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The rooms were old fashioned and sweet. I recommend if you have children, not to get a room above the restaurant because on Saturdays the music is on until 23:00. We had a wonderful time at the beach, although we had to pay for water sports which were annoying because we love water sports. The food was delicious, especially the seafood. Galla night, AMAZING!! The choice of food was unbelievable! Our overall stay was great!

I am writing this review because of the service I received at the Lounge called La Pogada. A beautiful relaxing and romantic place located on the beach. I had lunch here twice and hadn't the vacation been over,I would have gladly come back. This is thanks to a wonderful person called Elisa- you don't have the opportunity of meeting people like her everyday; a charming person who offers a smile weather she's taking your order,bringing it to your table or just asking if you need anything else. The best is that her politeness is natural and not due to the policy of the hotel. This detail along with the hospitality and warm heart makes you appreciate people like her and with simple words offer a "thank you " in return. They deserve it and please,never treat this kind of people like simple waiters. I strongly recommend this place at least for lunch,delicious food.

We stayed at Gallia Palace Aug. 31-Sept. 3, 2017, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our room was lovely and well appointed. The facility is well managed, and the staff is warm and welcoming - particularly the concierge Francesca. She went out of her way to make our stay very pleasant and memorable.

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this property and interacting with a third generation owner. The beach was a bit far to walk, but there was a shuttle service available. The gym was a bit disappointing, other than that the hotel was nice and we would definitely recommend it.
