We enjoyed our staying there a lot. Bruno and Rosella are very warm-hearted and hospitable. We recommend this accommodation in the heart of Portoferreiro very strongly as it is close to a lot of restaurants and shops. From the room itself we had great overview over the harbor. Our room as well as the whole B&B is very lovely and... More

Very central accommodation to visit not only Portoferraio but the whole island of Elba. Just few minutes walk from the ferry as soon as you arrive from mainland Italy. Very handy place indeed. All amenities are nearby. A large choice of restaurants, bars, shops, supermarket and services. The sea is just 20m nearby. Besides, you can take any bus which... More

The owners were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. They even carried my bags up the 4 flights of stairs. Although not young we managed and probably benefited from the stairs over the few days we were there. Access is off a main square with access to many restaurants and a few minutes to the waters...

My wife and me spent four nights at the end of July. Rossella and Bruno have been fantastic hosts, very welcoming and friendly. I asked every morning about the weather forecast and which beach was the best on that day and we ended up always in the right places. Our room (Scirocco) was beautiful and the view from the window...

First of all, I wanna thank our hosts that made our stay more beautiful. They were there whenever you had a question and invisible for the rest of time. One of the great things about this small b&b is it's location and cleanliness. We would definitely stay there again if we have the occasion.

Rossella and Bruno were WONDERFUL. Bruno insisted on carrying our large suitcases the four flights of stairs to the room, which was much appreciated. The accommodations were fine- clean and welcoming. The location, in the heart of the main square, could not have been better. Bruno advised with train and ferry schedules to ensure trouble free connections. I felt bad... More

We stayed three nights at this cute little B&B, Rossella and Bruno were fantastic. So welcoming and went out of their way to help us out. It's in a great location, I was travelling with young kids and able to walk to 3 different beaches and one rocky cove to explore. It's central in the old town and we could... More

We stayed here for two nights in Portoferraio. Our hosts were excellent, friendly, and helpful, and called to arrange a car rental for us as well. Their home is beautiful (three/four flights of stairs though, but for me that's no problem, and actually charming), an old old building right at a historic square in the old city. Totally recommendable! Large... More
