La Roqqa

La Roqqa

Around the beginning of the 18th century, the former island of Monte Argentario began to attach itself to the Tuscan mainland with two headlands. Before that, the island was also politically independent of Tuscany and was under Spanish rule, as was the larger neighboring island of Elba. Today, the peninsula is a popular vacation destination with beautiful beaches, steep cliffs, hidden coves and cozy seaside towns. One of these is Porto Ercole, a typical Italian fishing village with colorful houses and a picturesque harbor. In this idyllic setting lies the brand new hotel La Roqqa, whose decor is inspired by the glamour of 1960s Italy. The name refers to the three Spanish fortresses that tower over the town, from which you can enjoy stunning views.

About the rooms

All rooms have a balcony or terrace, usually sea views, and an espresso machine. They are decorated according to three colour themes, one for each floor: Terra di Siena is the typical colour of the buildings in Porto Ercole. Green is matching the vegetation and blue is the colour of the sea. The suites, some with 3 or 4 bedrooms, are decorated in sandy hues with a colourful accent here and there. The bathrooms have a shower, bathrobes, slippers and exclusive bath products.
