About US

The origin of the Hotel Club I Pini dates back to the early 1900s. This villa, built as a summer residence by the famous Art Nouveau artist Galileo Chini, was one of the first residences built in Lido di Camaiore.
In the 60s the son of Galileo Chini, Eros, decided to turn this house into an hotel, managing to preserve its original style keeping paintings, frescoes and furniture that belonged to his father.
Since 1988, the hotel management was transferred to the Family Salvini-Degl'Innocenti. Since then, have passed 26 years and today, after Claudio and Loretta continues in the hands of the sons Nicola and Cesare.
The key of success has been, and still is, the extreme simplicity and naturalness in the relationship with all our guest.
Today as yesterday, the only goal is to make you feel at home away from home.

Hotel history

The story of the Hotel I Pini in Lido di Camaiore

In 1907, Galileo Chini bought a pinewood in Lido di Camaiore, following the advice of his friend the painter Plinio Nomellini. In 1914, returning from his journey in Siam, Chini decided to build on the pinewood his summer residence which he called "La Casa delle Vacanze" (The Holidays House).

"La Casa delle Vacanze" is a simple and elegant villa decorated by Chini itself in pure Art Nouveau style. Represented many times in his paintings, the house became his refuge where he could live and work for long periods in an environment designed in according to his needs.

Among the famous personalities who attended the villa there were Eleonora Duse, Plinio Nomellini, Isadora Duncan and Giacomo Puccini, for whom he designed the scenography for Turandot, during his meetings with Puccini in the villa.

The villa has preserved some of its original furniture, and even today there are many works that can be admired inside the hotel, especially paintings, frescoes and ceramics.
