Wine & Food
The Paradu Tuscany Eco Resort is at Donoratico, in the heart of Tuscany, where the hills covered in vineyards that yield sugar-rich grapes slowly sink their roots into the crystal-clear sea, in a cradle naturally created by the Mediterranean maquis, which runs right down to the beach, with sea daffodils (Pancratium Maritimum) providing the last few metres of vegetation.
As you sink your feet into the fine sand, your eyes seek out the infinite horizon, placing you in the centre of a dimension where you feel at home, an integral part of an ecosystem which supports and nurtures all its components.
Paradu Tuscany Eco Resort is inspired by this elegant, relaxing dream, and complete oneness with nature. Initially, it had a different name: it was in July 1967 that the world's largest Club Mediterranée, an avant-garde facility promoting a tourism with Radical Chic Naturism as its keynote, opened its doors to visitors. The village featured Polynesian tukul huts, which are still, almost fifty years later, the leitmotiv and symbol of Paradù.
In 2003, international competition caused the closure of the Club Med, and just ten years later a group of local businessmen, in love with the location's exclusive, irresistible beauty, decided to create an innovative complex, inspired by the principles of eco-friendly, sustainable, environmentally aware tourism, a place capable of offering today's visitors a glimpse of a different, more positive, people-centred future.
The concrete foundations of the old accommodation structures were demolished and removed, leaving just the masonry of the communal buildings. The new chalets are designed to be completely removable, standing on sand and 100% recyclable, and every apartment is conceived to be independent in terms of water and energy consumption.
The utmost tranquillity and energy saving are also guaranteed by means of the many internal strategies involving the guests themselves: from waste recycling to eco-friendly activities for children, from experiences for discovering the local flora to the ban on the use of motor vehicles inside the resort.
Paradù opened its doors to tourism in 2014, with a new name inspired by the historic sword lost by pirates as they made their escape during one of their many raids on this coastline, particularly vulnerable due to the easy landings it offered.
A perfect name for expressing an adventurous lifestyle, suitable for families and people wishing to explore an area and its mysterious sides, discovering its priceless treasures one by one.
Paradu Eco Resort, care for life.
Paradu Eco Resort, an environmentally sustainable complex immersed in greenery, where every Tuscany chalet is sheltered in the cool shade of umbrella pines and ilex, right by the sea and with privileged access to the Tuscan hinterland
We have revolutionised the holiday village concept, drawing inspiration from Tuscany and its sea, seeking to redefine “all inclusive” starting from the natural embrace of an exquisite context, appreciated to perfection in every chalet, every facility and every square metre of our grounds.
