Having spent time reading reviews prior to going, we thought it necessary to write this review for the people who are unsure or would like to know a little more. We flew to Pisa, hired a car & drove to Grosseto. The place was easy to find, please note that the reception isn't signposted from the main road, but is located near to the Casa Livia restaurant, so took us a little longer to work out. The staff were fantastic, telling us virtually everything we needed to know. Little things were missed out, like breakfast...we assumed we had booked breakfast that this would arrive every day, however the first day you get the standard croissants, rolls & coffee, with a sheet you have to fill in, to let them know what you would like after that. We was happy with what we had, so didn't fill the sheet in, and ended up with no brekkie the next day. When asked they would of sorted breakfast out for us that morning. So more lack of communication/confusion on both sides.
We stayed in the Double Deluxe 2 pax apartment, which I have to say, was fantastico. Nice, clean, modern, all ammenities, could have not asked or hoped for more. 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds in each, an upstairs bathroom with shower, as well as a downstairs bathroom with shower. The pool was unheated, which for us brits, meant it was freezing in May, still nice to relax around tho.
We went to the restaurant twice, the staff were very welcoming, & the food, was very nice. Not many choices as you would get from English restaurants but food was very nice all the same. From where we was staying, it was approx a mile along a straight road, but was nice to walk it, & therefore we both could enjoy a bottle of wine.
Bikes are available, but only for use on site. Well, you can go off site, however they recommend you don't for your safety. If you do, you have to sign a disclaimer, as they are responsible otherwise.
Generally, we would say this is a very good place to stay. We would definately stay here again. It caters for all, families, couples, & friends. It is a good base to visit southern Tuscany.
