The Caravaggio Suite at LA ROQQA, Porto Ercole – Italy’s Chicest New Penthouse

Tucked away on a small Tuscan island off Italy’s West coast, the new 55-room and suite LA ROQQA boutique hotel offers a unique blend of modern elegance and timeless charm inspired by the glitz of 1960s Dolce Vita.

Designed by renowned Milanese design house, Palomba e Serafini Associati, and situated in the stunning town of Porto Ercole, LA ROQQA celebrates minimalism through carefully curated architectural elements and materials – iron accents, bespoke colours, ambient lighting, and textures enhance the hotel’s façade, which is reminiscent of traditional Tuscan terracotta houses.

Just in time for Summer, LA ROQQA has unveiled its brand-new, ultra-chic penthouse, The Caravaggio Suite – a masterpiece of design and comfort.

Uncluttered and refined, The Caravaggio Suite at LA ROQQA takes luxury to new heights, occupying the entire top floor with four panoramic terraces offering a 360° view spanning the sea, Porto Ercole, Monte Argentario, and the gentle hills of Maremma. Bathed in natural light, the space features three king-size bedrooms, a large separate living room, and terraces that invite guests to soak in the stunning scenery. Inside, the intricate ‘nuvolatura’ lime plaster technique on the walls, terracotta hues, and handcrafted vintage furnishings elevate the authentic Italian aesthetic.

The penthouse can be booked in full as The Caravaggio Suite, or separately to create three individual suites. One section of this division, The Erasmo Panoramic Sea View Suite, honours Saint Erasmo, the patron saint of sailors, reflecting the hotel’s deep connection to the local heritage. Caravaggio, the renowned artist and the Penthouse’s name’s sake, also has a historical connection to Porto Ercole, where he spent his final days and is buried. His dramatic and naturalistic style, influenced by the Venetian tradition, gained him fame and remains celebrated today.

Beyond the new penthouse, LA ROQQA features a vibrant rooftop restaurant, Scirocco, with breathtaking views over Porto Ercole, in addition to a casual dining spot, Mezzanine Restaurant. The hotel also has brand-new beach club, Isolotto, just a stroll away in a secluded bay with views over the small island after which it is named, and, will be home to two vibrant restaurants.

Porto Ercole lies on the east coast of Tuscany’s Monte Argentario, connected to the mainland by one road dividing two lagoons. A geological marvel, this rocky landmass was a true island for millennia until it became connected to the mainland by two long sandbars, and for centuries, has been considered one of the most authentic, charismatic Italian seaside towns.

Nightly rates at LA ROQQA start from €430 per room, per night on a B&B basis based on double occupancy. LA ROQQA is 1.5 hours from Rome. For more information, and to book, please visit
