This was perhaps the worst hotel experience on my life. A tiny barely decorated room full of mosquitoes and lacking screens. A desk that couldn't be bothered to find us some mosquito coils. A set menu of unedible food at meal after meal. An anti-American owner and staff who made their animus clear. The setting is as lovely as the... More

This is a wonderful hideaway on this Tuscan Island made famous by the wrecking if the Costa Concordia on January 2012. Went here with a girlfriend and it was beautiful. It is difficult to get to nd since you can only get there by boat it has to be said that it is not an easy place to get in... More

My boyfriend (who is Italian) had visited the hotel when he was little and loved it. So we decided to bring my parents here for a weekend. Hotel- Arriving via the ferry and being taken by boat to the hotel is fun (though you have to pay 10 euro per person for the boat trip which we weren't expecting) and... More

We've stayed with the Pardini's twice and loved it both times. Amazing people, food, views, and solitude. You can't ask for much more and you won't find it too many other places. Even in the height of summer holiday in Italy, this place offers you a place to get away from the crowds and noise of the coast. In deciding... More

Wow- this is a gem! It's exclusive and private, and it feels like a different world. It is accessible only by boat, then a nice uphill hike on a very well groomed trail so even getting there is an exciting adventure.The staff is very accomodating and the food is *fantastic*. This small, family-owned resort a place where travelers can go... More

From the moment we stepped off the ferry, we knew we were in for an unforgettable and delightful experience. Pardini's lovely innkeeper, Paola, arranged for a boat to greet us and we were whisked across the island to the paradise that is Pardini's Hermitage. The food is grown in their garden, the cheese procured from their goats - there are... More

Pardini's Hermitage is reached by taking a water taxi ( arrange it with the hotel) from Porto Giglio (free twice a day, otherwise about 10€ pp). Because it is not accessible by road, it is only sensible to have all your meals at the hotel. Your bags are taken care of as you get in to the water taxi and,... More

Pardini is a special, unique, peaceful corner of Paradise. Possible to be reached only by boat, it is a small hotel, with amazing location, wonderful clean deep blue sea, unspoiled view, authentic mediterranean environment. The general atmosphere is friendly and familiar, even if attentive and respectful. Excellent food, several comfortable spots in the magnificent garden to rest, read and look... More
