From the time we arrived at La Stanze we felt relaxed. I am a hotelier and am constantly checking out all of the things that other hotels do, the level of their service, the food, the finishings etc. I have to say that this is one of the few places where I could really relax because of the way that Florence and her staff took care of us and because the surroundings were so wonderful. You feel like you are staying with her in her house as her guest. Nothing is too much trouble and it's super relaxed.
Our room was very comfortable and perfect for our needs; we were travelling with our 3 year old son. He really enjoyed all of Florence's toys that date back to the 70's!! He also made friends with Florence, Lat and the dog and had to give them all a big kiss when we left... (not the dog!).
We had rented a car which was perfect because we could head out and explore the island. Florence had an armory of reccomendations and manage to suggest the best places for our needs (I am on crutches and with a 3 year old) and it always worked out excellently.
All is all this is a great place to relax and is centrally located in Elba so you can easily get out to the various parts of the island.
The island was beautiful and we really enjoyed our time there. The food was generally very good (if you like fish... Which we love!). The mix of the Tuscan life style and island-life was great.
Thanks too everybody at La Stanze who made our stay so special.
