Villa Liburnia is owned and run by a brother and sister - friends of ours. I don't hesitate to recommend this small B&B to anyone looking for quality of service, new and fresh rooms, peaceful surroundings, great pool (for adults only though), and an amazing view. And I have only heard good things about Curzio's breakfasts...
I have seen all the rooms, each unique, and all of them fresh with their own outdoor area. Parking is easy, and the property is gated. You do need a vehicle though to stay here, as they don't offer dinner, and there is only one local "trattoria" within what is said to be walking distance. With a car you won't have any problems though, Livorno and the seaside is full of nice dinner places, and Ramona, as a professional tour guide, will certainly be able to point you in the right direction. It is rare to find a place where you are guaranteed quality service in fluent English.
