Vacationing in the Tuscany countryside this summer? Travelers don’t often picture the sea when they hear the word Tuscany, but the Maremma coast is beautiful, with dreamy hideaways overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. One such destination, a Relais & Chateaux member called Hotel Cala del Porto, recently unveiled its brand new beach club overlooking the Tuscan Archipelago.

La Vela was designed by Rebosio+Spagnulo, the Milan-based architecture studio, as a dramatic, sail-like structure on the sand. The club has a wellness area with a solarium, hammam, spa treatment rooms and an outdoor fitness center with Technogym equipment. There’s a bar and terrace—ideal for sunset drinks—plus a restaurant serving up Mediterranean food with local Tuscan ingredients (both lunch and dinner). In addition, there’s a bar on the beach.

Part of the Baglioni Hotels collection, Hotel Cala del Porto is located next to the marina of Punta Ala and offers views across the bay to the island of Elba. For more information, visit www.baglionihotels.com
