I wanted a getaway where I could rest in peace and quiet, near a beach. I couldn't ask for more than what I found here!!! Ellen was a most gracious host, giving me a tour of all 4 rooms -- I was the only guest, her last before closing for the season -- and took me down to the beach,...

If you are looking to find a place to get away from the crowds, a place to share and learn about the cultural sites in the area, a place to unwind, sit on a nearby beach, visit Etruscan ruins, then Boccadalma is where you should book your next vacation. Ellen prepared a lovely breakfast every day of our week long...

Thanks so much for the kind words. You were great guests and I am glad that Boccadalma lived up to your expectations. I love sending people to my 'special places' after sounding out what their interests are. It is especially fun having other Americans to speak with and breakfast chats are my favorite time of the day. Hope you make...

My husband and I live near San Francisco and we prefer staying in B&Bs whenever possible. Boccadalma was an idyllic B&B for us because it combined the charms of Tuscany with mountain biking trails and beaches for swimming less than a mile away. The sand on the beach was fine and clean and inviting . The B&B was on a...

Thanks so much for your kind review of B&B Boccadalma. We are so happy when Americans 'discover' us, since most of them don't go off the beaten path of the normal hilltop towns or cultural sites in Tuscany. I agree that here there is so much to offer in the Maremma!. Hope to see you back soon. Ellen and Luciano

It was a last minute booking and a lucky one. Ellen was flexible and kind, she picked us up from the train station and gave us a ride to the beach. The B&B is very cosy, located between Follonica and Castiglioni della Pescaia in a quiet area close to a camping resort with two restaurants and supermarket. The walk to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a newly renovated 4-bedroom B&B located in an old farm house on a hilltop just 1.5 km from the lovely, sandy beaches of the Gulf of Punta Ala. You can see the Island of Elba from the house, and there is always a nice breeze to keep you cool in the summer. Breakfast is eaten in the hall with a vaulted ceiling. All facilities (tennis, sailing, bike rentals,restaurants and supermarket)as well as free parking for the beach, are available to our guests at the nearby PuntAla Camping Resort. We are on the edge of the Natural Park called 'Bandite di Scarlino' with thousands of hectars of woods, biking and hiking trails. It is just a 45 minute shady walk to the famous "Cala Violina". Ellen and Luciano would be happy to welcome you, and both speak fluent English, Italian, German and French. ... more   less
