When it comes to sports, Versilia offers it all.

The Versilia Golf Club – Via della Sipe 100, Pietrasanta
A splendid 71-par golf course designed by Marco Croze and inaugurated in 1990, it has 18 holes covering 5,873 meters. With a rating for men at 71.7 and a slope rating of 123, the course winds over a landscape dotted with sand traps and ponds. The greens are a sort of “island” that belongs almost entirely to the city of Pietrasanta, with minor shares held by Forte dei Marmi and Montignoso. Precision is vitally important as one approaches the green, especially at holes 6, 10, 12 and 17, where the fairway is characterised by a high step that makes putting a real challenge not to be underestimated. The Versilia Golf Club is only 2.5km from the hotel and is closed on non-holiday Tuesdays from November to February.

Tennis Italia – Via dell’Acqua 102, Forte dei Marmi
Forte dei Marmi boasts the highest density of tennis courts per square kilometer in all of Italy. The choice of perfectly tended and equipped courts for a friendly match between friends is truly vast. One of the more popular tennis clubs is Tennis Italia, with eight well-lit clay courts of which three are covered by a permanent geodesic dome. The club offers mini tennis lessons, lessons for adults and personalised training. While there you might even meet Paolo Bertolucci, one of Italy’s all-time greatest doubles champions.
