July 1967: A Club Mediteranèe opens in Donoratico. It is the largest resort of its kind worldwide. This event led to a drastic turnaround of tourism in Tuscany and throughout Italy, with a combination of naturalism and radical chic being at the heart of Club Med's philosophy. The resort was characterized by Polynesian tukuls, the typical huts that also used to be the symbol of Paradù for fifty years. Due to strong international competition, Club Med had to close its gates in 2003.

A group of local entrepreneurs still believed in the deep beauty of the location and breathed new life into the resort 10 years after it had closed. This way, a new resort was created, influenced by eco tourism. The old cement foundations of the original tukuls were removed. The only firmly built buildings left are the community buildings of the previous Club Med, including restaurant, kitchen, bar, pools and reception.

In 2014, the Paradù Tuscany Eco Resort was opened.

Why Paradù? "Paradù" is the original term for an axe that was lost by pirates who had to flee. As going ashore was easy in this region, it was regularly visited by pirates. Today, the name indicates a place with a stream that was actually used by pirates at the time.
