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.
