We stayed at Villa Pimpina in July 2014 and had an excellent time. Villa Pimpina is essentially a B&B - but it is top quality. The rooms had character and were in good conditions. The bathroom was simple but had all it needed. Pimpina offers a very good quality buffet breakfast which we usually had on the beautiful terrace. The... More

We enjoyed one night here up the hill to the little cobbled streets with our bike. The garden terrace was apprecited and the tasteful decor, not forgetting the delicious cakes for breakfast, in fact the best on our trip. There are some very good restaurants nearby as the hotel kindly showed us, which you may have to book for, as... More

These words are not related to the hotel so much: we took the ferry and dolphins were playing in the water, I have never seen dolphins in the wild before so it was a real treat. Access to the port and the ferry are both very easy, if you are on the fence about visiting Carloforte = just go! It... More

I spent two weeks at this hotel with my family and some friends between July and August. It's a small, quiet, clean hotel in the old town. It has only 10 rooms. The best one is number 8, the second number 10 (for size and sea view). The owners are very helpful. They know the island very well and can... More

Being situated away from the main area this is a quiet location but still only minutes from the waterfront and restaurants. Very welcoming owners and really made to feel at home. The garden terrace has an inspiring view of the church tower and the sea. Breakfast is freshly prepared by the owners and the home bake cakes are superb. Thoroughly... More

We first visited Villa Pimpina in March 2012, and since we have just returned after our third visit, I thought I would update my previous review. You often wonder whether it's a matter of luck or chance that a particular hotel is outstanding on a particular occasion. I am pleased to say that in the case of Villa Pimpina it... More

Loved this little hotel - it's a real gem in a lovely little town. Clean, quiet, tastefully furnished. Friendly,helpful, welcoming staff, large, spacious room (loved the funky red chair!) and the most superb breakfast with fruit and home-baked delicacies. There is even a little terrace garden where we could sit and eat our take-away lunch.

Not a surprise that Hotel Villa Pimpina is rated so highly on TripAdvisor. The place is immaculate, the staff very accommodating, the rooms spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast was the best quality we have had in Italy. Villa Pimpina is right in the middle of Carloforte, uphill a bit from the port/waterfront. This has some benefits and challenges. It... More

Stayed at this hotel for three nights in July. It's a really great find and good value. The hotel is a renovated residence and is decorated in a really eclectic style. Our room was huge and very clean. There was plenty of storage and space with interesting furniture. Rooms seem to be decorated individually. The bathroom was spacious and very... More

I wanted to surprise my wife with a short holiday for her 50th birthday. One of her favourite places is Carloforte on the Island of St Pietro. We had visited the Island on several previous occasions, staying at the Hotel Riviera. I booked the Riviera 3 months before her birthday, and this booking was confirmed. Much to my surprise the...
