Exceedingly clean, comfortable and well equiped. Excellent breakfasts! Peter is a kind and thoughtful host. Easy access to La Madelena and boat trips around the islands. We ended up extending our stay by several nights.

Where to begin? We really couldn't fault this fantastic B&B. It was very easy to find, and we were greeted warmly by Peter who showed us to our lovely, clean, bright and spacious room. Peter doesn't speak much English, and we spoke even less Italian but we got there between us! The room was beautifully decorated and nice and airy,... More

This is as good as B and B's get. The rooms and ensuite are very large and superbly presented. Peter provides a great range of local information and the breakfast is fantastic with a great range of different foods provided. Peter encourages guests to take away left over breakfast items. He is very helpful in many different ways. The B... More

Very comfortable and clean room panoramic view with large bathroom. Situated in center of Palau but in a very quiet street. Very, very complete breakfast with fresh fruit, cheese, ham, croissant, youghurt, eggs and so on. Pietro (Peter) is a very gentle and careful host. Plenty of documentation about the region and advise for restautants. The drapes were renewed every... More

Pietro is a great host and his breakfast's are HUGE and he will say take whatever is left over and have it for lunch (which is great when you are into hiking like me). The rooms are full of character and are extremely well maintained. One of the best places I stayed on my trip. I had booked for 2... More

L'orso e il mare is a B&B in the centre of Palau, really close to the harbour. Rooms are well equipped and clean. The owner is very helpfull. Breakfast was abundant. As this B&B is in the centre of Palau you may experience some noise in the evening, as music is played on the piazza close to the B&B.

We spent 4 nights of our honeymoon in this wonderful B&B. Our room was the one in the ground floor. It was clean, well kept and had a great shower. What made our stay really special was the owner Pietro, he received us like family! Always smiling and avaiable, he spoiled us with fruits, water and laundry. His tips about... More

This excellent B&B is in a good central location on a quiet side street in Palau. We stayed here for 5 nights in June. Pietro welcomes you like a friend and ensures all your needs are catered for. Our lovely room on the first floor was bright and airy with effective blinds to keep the strong sunlight in the morning.... More

If you go to Palau, book a room at il Orso e il mare. It was great. The rooms are big and nice. The owner Pietro is very nice and helpful, although communication was difficult, as we didnt speak Italian. The breakfast is fantastic.
