“Tranquillity but proximity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

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.

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!

Villa Liburnia is a new structure, but in a pleasant country style, built and is run by a young brother and sister pair. The rooms are large and modern, not luxurious but furnished with everything needed for a pleasant night's stay. One thing that was a big plus was the bed - a fantastic mattress! Upon waking we immediately noticed the absence of aches and pains that we have had for ages.

Our room - and it seems to be the same for the others - opened onto a little patio with garden table and furniture, overlooking the pool and with a commanding view over the city of Livorno (Leghorn). One of the interesting details is the photovoltaic installation directly inside the entrance gate, which we were told produces sufficient energy to power the entire B & B villa during the summer months.

We were met by the very friendly Ramona, who speaks excellent English (for those of us who are language-impaired), and who provided us with a map and directions to the places we needed to visit the following day.

In the winter months, the breakfast is delivered to the individual rooms. In the summer, we were informed that it is served in the main central portion of the building. It was copious, although on the sweet side typical of Italian breakfasts; if you are from northern Europe you may miss a bit of savory choices. However, the sugar rush is compensated for by the fantastic location. One is literally only minutes from central Livorno while being able to sleep in the silence of the countryside - not to mention having an ample place to park a car in secure surroundings.

The land immediately around the villa has been newly planted with herbs and a garden/pool area which with a few years growth should become quite charming. As the villa has over two hectares of land, there is also the possibility for walks on a forested part of the property.

In short, the place is welcoming with a great location and friendly, helpful owners. If we need a place to stay in the area in the future, we know exactly where to go.

We booked all rooms for our family for one week. We spent a lot of time by the pool. Everyone loved the view of both the town and the sea. You need a car to be able to visit Pisa, Firenze or Siena or go to the centre of Livorno. It was relaxing to feel the peace at the place and still be in the close neghbourhood of the town of Livorno. Some of us came by car from Sweden - some flied to Pisa. It was also possible to take the train from Pisa to Livorno and from Livorno to Firenze.
