The houses and rooms are lovely, the vegetarian food delicious and if you ask for things they are very accommodating. It's a typical 'surf house' & not very Italian - so you should be pretty self-sufficient. In that respect you NEED a car to be here as there are no grocery shops or restaurants within a 2 mile radius. If... More

We stayed at Floripa only for 2 nights but it was a really great place to be. Easy to find via GPS, Parking provided, nice house and garden to relax in a hamac or lie in the grass. The beach is only 5 minutes by foot. Some sunbeds are provided with umbrellas. The beach itself is huge and well maintained....... More

The B&B is perfectly located - 100 m from the sand beach, perfect for kite surf. The owner and his crew (including the Husky dog!) are extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast is delicious with cakes cooked every morning. Clean rooms, a garden with slack line, hammacs and calcetto, what else do you need after long day in the water doing... More

Great place to stay for kitesurfers. 2 minutes walk from the beach which is perfect for beginners (me) and plenty of pros out there too. Ettore (owner) is a great guy, very welcoming and the rest of the Floripa family make you feel like....well, family! BBQ, nice brekky, bicycles, and hammocks. Chilled...

Great home-cooked breakfast By the owner Ettore. Nice, clean rooms with comfortable beds. Relaxed garden hang-out with hammocks, football table, free bike rent and opportunity to clean and dry kite gear. And the possibility to rent kite/SUP/surf stuff and get (private) lessons! Ettore is truly a passionate host to his guests making them feel at home instantly and helping out... More

Ettore's Floripa, is a great place to practice and learn kite while relaxing in a very homy, family run B&B. The hosts are extremely welcome and definitely take good care of you. Would definitely recommend it and will most certainly come back! (ps inside the b&b they even have a kite store in case you forgot your cool sunglasses!)

We have really liked our stay in Floripa. Ettore (owner) is very nice and friendly. We really felt at home. Everything is very clean. Breakfast is good, freshly made cakes and jam. The beaches are nice, but everything is very basic. Unfortunately not an old city center etc...

Floripa is a very nice kite surf house with a very good breadfast, nice rooms and a cool host. The kite spot around 50m from the house is just amazing. We have been there for two weeks and we only had one day without wind. Anett&Csaba
