My wife & I stayed for 6 nights at Al Vecchio Pioppo at the beginning of September.
We were met by the friendly Gaetano at the train station and taken for an espresso by our host.
The B & B is well located in the center & a very short walk from the beach.
All of the guest house is immaculately clean. What sets Al Vecchio Pioppo apart is the level of warm personal service provided by Gaetano & Antonella. The highlight of our stay in Praia was the trip on Gaetano's boat Calypso to Dino's island & surrounding bays where we dropped anchor for lunch in the skippers favourite spot, better than the commercial trips on offer
and tremendous value for money. We also requested to sample some of the local delicacies prepared by Antonella for our last evening and enjoyed a wonderful meal with our hosts. These personal touches and experiences are not to found in a hotel &
we highly recommend Al Vecchio Pioppo if you visit Praia.
