We stayed here for four nights while travelling in Tuscany.
It's a small place (6 rooms) and it's quite new (2012 is their third season), so the accommodation is modern, clean, and the beds are great. Each room has a 'private' patio with a really great view of the ocean and Livorno. The sun sets are just amazing, don't miss them!
There is free parking, and the pool was clean and good. The staff (a sister and a brother) are helpful, and will give you tips on what to do in the area.
The breakfast was a bit disappointing (this is Italy, and Tuscany). A bit more than sweets would have ben good. But getting the breakfast served on your private patio, whenever you want it was a great idea. Waking up to a table ready for breakfast just outside your room was a luxury twist.
While in Livorno, go to the beach in Vada. It's a great beach, well worth a visit (at least). Great white sand and water. Mosly locals go there, and so should you!
