If you don't have a GPS, this might be a little hard to find, but Carla and Walter will do their best and even email photos of where to turn. The view is magnificent! Carla was very attentive and made wonderful breakfasts for us. Her attention to setting the table is beautiful. Walter is so friendly and even tries to... More

... and when I say "above", I do mean really above. As others have said, you go all the way to the top, and this gives you a great view of La Spezia. Being way up there, it's away from the noise of the city; the evenings were silent except for far-away church bells. Walter and Carla were very welcoming... More

Great views, and very nice couple who own this B&B. Beautiful home inside and out with breath taking views overlooking La Spezia, Italy from high up on the hill side. We had a great breakfast on the patio in the morning.

Our room was spacious, clean, with a very comfortable bed and it had a little terrace overlooking La Spezia. Carla and Walter are lovely people; so welcoming, friendly and... More

This is an unbelievable place a true gem where we stayed for three days in July 2013. It has every you can ask for - at least everything our family (two adults and three children (14, 16 and 21) are looking for. The place has a great location on a hilltop with a fantastic 360 degree view from the cozy... More

We stayed there for one night in mid-may, but got the best experiences during our stay in italy. The place was not clear to find, I suppose it was because our gps wasn't updated. Once you're in the area, just drive all the to the top. The last part looks like a narrow walking trail, but just continue to drive... More

We stayed with Walter and Carla on June 22, 2013. We would highly recommend this B&B. The Bed was large and comfortable, the bathroom was clean and bright, there was plenty of closet space and free parking. The bedrooms are upstairs in the house, ours had a deck and the view was lovely. The home is about 5 km above... More

Would highly recommend Walter and Carla's hospitality. We stayed for 3 nights, 2 couples. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Her breakfast were so good, home baking and each morning had a different variety to chose from. We also had an authentic La Spazia fish dinner that she prepared, excellent. WONDERFUL stay and would certainly, stay again. You will need... More

We really enjoyed stay at Il Gelsomino B&B last week. Walter and Carla are a delight and were very kind. When we had trouble finding the place (our GPS went out and our printed directions were not clear), Carla drove down to a nearby hotel where we were waiting in our car and had us follow her up to the...

If it's eating a fantastic meal on a lovely terrace of a lovely home perched 800 feet above the Bay of Poets (Byron, Shelley, Lawrence and Virginia Woolf) you're looking for, then this is the place! Moreover, Carla has to be the best cook in the region--only fitting for the setting. Not only that, Il Gelsomino has comfortable beds, spacious... More
