Il Bottaccio was born from the vision of Elio D’Anna and his wife Laura, to transfrom the old mill into a hotel for the most demanding of international travellers. Il Bottaccio - surrounded by crystal clear mountain streams and framed by the pure white statuary marbles of Cararra, breathes the westerly breezes of the Ligurian Sea. One of the watercourses turned the great wooden wheel of the olive press that dominated the old mill. The marble of the quarries of white gold, above Carrara, where Michelangelo chose the stone for his David and the Pietà. The house, a XVIII century olive oil mill, has been artfully transformed into a gourmet traveller’s paradise. The harmony and comfort of the elegant suites, the artful combination of antique and modern furnishings and the excellence of its cuisine are crowned by the relaxation offered in the new Otzium Hammam to create a unique unforgettable experience.
