On immediate entrance to Lucca's B & B there was supreme hospitality and friendship. He always called by my name, that itself is a luxury in this modern world!! The room was as it says on the tin. Low lighting, a pleasant ambiance to the whole place. Balcony would be a choice next time, but not important. A kitchen diner... More

It started with an email to Luca (the owner) to request if there was a room available in June. He replied with an amazing five page email with all the information about Cagliari and the area you could imagine. So friendly and kind, we knew immediately this would have to be the place to stay!

Imagine staying in a room glowing with warm ochres and reds on the walls and tall French doors that open onto a balcony overlooking a street vibrating with life. Gauzy curtains gently blowing in and out are oddly soothing to watch. This is the Bed & Breakfast " Il Girasole" located in a l7th century building in Cagliari, the capitol... More

My wallet & VISA were stolen on the Rome metro. My bank agreed to send a replacement VISA to Il Girasole in Cagliari where I would be staying for 5 days.

Il Girasole was a great introduction to Sardinia. Luca was very welcoming and hospitable and as I was travelling alone that made a big difference to me. He gave lots of local information and practical tips and picked me up from the airport (with three other guests) when my plane was late. The room was large, had a large comfortable... More

My wife and I had originally planned on staying at the Il Girasole for two nights. But when we arrived and saw the room and that fact that the a/c did not work and the overall feel of the place, we decided to leave. We would have left our experience at that, since we left thinking that we had missed... More

Dear Guest, tacky email is the consequence of a tacky behaviour. So here's my experience with you. First, in your reservation, you asked for a quiet room. We have 3 rooms in total. 2 facing the street and 1 opened on a internal court. This is the quitest room we have. Obviously arriving at 13.30 in the center of a... More

Il Girasole is the place to be. Great price in a great location. You're walking distance to the Marina, restaurants, and bars. Luca is probably the nicest guy you'll meet.

B&B is strategically located close to the historic center of the city and to Marina, with the parking lot nearby (a bid plus!). We stayed at this B&B twice and it was a perfect budget accommodation.

“All rooms are great. Budget is not a word I would use...it is not expensive and worth more !!!”

“Rooms all have a balcony, it can get loud outside at night (the roll-screens help a lot). In the middle of the city this is to be expected”
