“great views, tremendous hospitality, but hard to find.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

There are a few negatives that others appear to have identified too but these should not put anyone off, because the positives are really very good.
1. It's hard to find even with an electronic navigator and you can only park in a small narrow, steep street a little way away.
2. It's a little way out of town with no amenities close by
3. It is not suitable for those with walking difficulties.
4.The room we stayed in could have done with a fridge.
5.The water in the shower was cold all the time, so refreshing but frustrating.

That said it is beautiful, inside and out and peaceful too. It has great hosts, Franco & Betty who speak a little English and are so helpful, pointing out beaches and local highlights as well as an excellent fish restaurant 1K away (not walkable). They leave a small tray of breakfast food and drinks and the place is spotless. We really enjoyed our two nights there and as stated the 'negatives' are for noting but not necessarily to stop anyone else booking. We stayed in the main house - not the garden rooms that others refer too, but these looked really good too.

This B&B is owned and run by a couple, we met the gentleman host who we found to be very helpful and friendly even with the language barrier.
The B&B was navigationally hard to find even with our sat nav but when we found it we were very happy it was perfect for what we wanted. The views are fabulous and the location is beautiful. I’m not sure how many rooms there are in total, but we stayed in a separate part to the ones advertised on accommodation websites, however we were not disappointed. Our room was made up of two floors the first floor being our entrance which had table and chairs outside it also has a kitchen, lounge and dining room all in one with a great addition of a mezzanine with another bed. On the ground floor was our bedroom with bathroom which had sweets and good quality toiletries. The rooms were modern and clean.
The breakfast was simple but appropriate. There is sweet restaurant that is about a 10 minuet walk which is delightful and a must.
I would stay here time and time again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the property have the better views.

Unfortunately we only stayed there for one night but if I have known how amazing the place was I would have extended the trip!
The B&B has 2 rooms - next to each other - with a big garden in front of them that opens to the view from the hill of the seaside of Livorno.
Few important notes:
1.- You need a car (with GPS) to get to the B&B. It's 15mins away form the Port but is quite tricky to find the house.
2.- The breakfast is not a warm breakfast. This worked perfect for us but I guess is worth to mention? They had instant coffee, tea + kettle, juices, croissants, biscuits, crackers, jam... all good quality.
3.- The walls are quite thin. Again, we didn't have any issues but it can be a little bit loud if your neighbours are a noisy.
4.- The room was HUGE, the bathroom perfect size, very very clean and the views were stunning.

I thought about keeping this place as a secret but is too good not to share!
