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

Very pleasant B&B in Elba. Clean and private with tall ceilings. The fact that it is up four flights of stairs means it is much quieter than it could be. We also had a room without a view, which was probably a blessing as it's on one of the most touristy squares in Portoferraio with cover bands playing quite late... More

Beautifully decorated and stylish B & B. We stayed in the 'Maestrale' room for five nights and then 'Grecale' for two - both were lovely, clean and had huge beds. Grecale has wonderful sea views and a four poster bed and we were very impressed. Rossella and Bruno were extremely welcoming and helpful, giving us great pointers about where to... More

Great location in the old centre of Portoferraio. Room modern, very clean and comfortable with a great view of the harbour. Hosts, Rossella and Bruno could not have been more friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again.

Porta del mare in Elba a good choise . Elba is gorgeous and the B & B is located in a lovely historical house. However, the charming, spacious rooms offer all of the modern comforts, marvellous views to the port . generous breakfast .
