“Charming and old world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This B&B in Massa, Italy is extremely charming, beautifully decorated, nicely located near the center of town, and very clean. We found this lovely inn through trip advisor and promptly booked 4 nights of our trip through the Massa-Carrara area. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and delicious and Beata and Daniela are both extremely nice. However, BE FOREWARNED, they do NOT speak any english. Though I had communicated with Daniela via email and in english, I was a bit dismayed to find that neither of these lovely ladies speaks any english and my italian is very bad. Fortunately, there was another guest who helped us. We didn't need much from the proprietors but it was nice to have someone help us with the little bit we did need. There is also no elevator so, if you cannot manage steps, you may want to find another place. I'd definitely return to this place on any return trips to the area. It is that charming and convenient, in my opinion. We really loved it.

I spent 4 lovely days thanks to my accommodation.
from the moment I arrived I felt like a princess.
As soon enter the house welcomes you a sweet aroma and Daniela makes you 'feel instantly welkome showing off with his class everything'' is the important for your stay
The house is' furnished with taste and elegance as Daniela.
Daniela resources and tips are excellent suggesting great restaurants and places to visit in and around Massa.
. I can not wait to go back

This small, perfectly run B&B in the heart of the old town of Massa is just the place you want to find in any other town you visit! Lovely spacious rooms, immaculately clean. Breakfast is served in the walled garden, weather permitting. The owner, Daniela and her assistant Beata are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much for them. We will certainly tell all our friends about this hidden little treasure. When the roadworks in the old town are finished, not that this affected the B&B which is on a small side street and very quiet, the town of Massa has quite some lovely attractions and we are sure the B&B will get lots of new admirers.

When someone does something with love you can definitely notice the difference. B&B Il Cuore is one of those cases. Everything is done in accordance to the principles that belongs to the making of the highest forms of human activities: perfection, uniqueness and love. The design of the rooms and the quality of the breakfast served are both coherent with the Made in Italy standards, the highest you'll ever find in the world. Daniela, the house owner, together with Beata, her assistant, are both examples of a warm form of hospitality which really has the power to distinguish itself from the cold and sterile hospitality you can find in huge hotel.
So if you are looking for the best quality at a modest price B&B Il Cuore is the way to go.

The b&b was just beautiful, the rooms were nothing less than the pictures in the site and during the summer you can take your breakfast at the back yard which is lovely. The b&b also has a nice common room where you can hang around. Most importantly the woman who owns the b&b was smiley and very polite, gave us heartily advice on where to go and what to see even though se barely spoke english.

Throughout the alleys, taverns and ancient shops of Massa's historic centre, IL CUORE Bed and Breakfast is a leap in the past, a place where you will feel welcomed and cuddled and where you will rediscover the pleasure of the conviviality of past times. Nothing is casual, everything is specifically wanted and created by Daniela and Roberto who lovingly selected the decors, furnishings and the many small things that make IL CUORE unique. Let the rocking horses, the old bird cages, the hearts and candles, the Murano glass chandeliers, the sweet and melodic music and the scent of orange blossoms that float in every ambient surprise and enchant you. Every corner is a surprise! The natural and warm tones of the fabrics, the refined elegance of the living room, the intimate atmosphere of the breakfast room, the fragrance of the apple cake that Beata prepares every morning, the light in the garden that enhances the white scented blossoms will make your stay unforgettable, a real revitalization of the body and mind.
