A very nice Bed&Breakfast. Service, rooms and breakfast are perfect. Elena and Stefano were heart warming hosts. The neighborhood is nice and quite, but it's may. 10 min to beach. I highly recommend to stay there.

Hosts Stephano and Helena have a passion for excellence, and it shows in their attention to detail. From the beautiful foyer and artfully decorated rooms, to the incredible breakfast pastries made fresh each day by Helena. Located minutes from the beach and shaded walkway through town center. Excellent hosts who also offer great restaurant suggestions (try the Tordelli and local... More

I booked 2 double rooms for 2 nights in July, one for me and may partner and 12 month old son, and one for my parents. I was hoping to stay in a hotel rather than guest house or B&B but the prices were unreasonably expensive. However, I am very glad I booked here as it totally exceeded my expectations.... More

We stayed two nights at Stefano and Elena's lovely home last September. They provided the perfect balance of privacy and helpfulness, taking time to answer all of our questions with patience.Their sincerity, enthusiasm and warmth didn't seem to be diminshed after seasons of entertaining tourists.The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, the best we've ever had: homemade melt-in-your mouth pastries and pizza,...

We are just back from a stay in Tuscany with a 2 day visit to Viareggio. Stefano and Elena the owners were wonderful hosts. They were there to make you feel welcome and they certainly achieved that. As stated previously the house is great for location and for all the little touches around it. It was a lovely experience staying... More

We stayed one night in Viareggio, and we found B&B through trip advisor. We read good comments, but nothinig can express the personal service of Stefano and Elisa, the best breakfast you can get (home made by Elisa), so nicely decorated rooms, good location, etc. The place is very clean, spacious, you can buy natural products they sell from the...

This has to be the best B&B experience I have ever had. I stayed here with my fiancé at the beginning of the month and we had a great time, a perfect base to explore Viareggio. Stefano and Elena balance perfectly the art of personal hospitality without being too intrusive; i.e. they make a fuss over you at breakfast but... More

We loved this place. Stefano and Elena were great hosts. The rooms were clean, comfortable and charming. This is a 100 year old home that Elena has taken great care to furnish and decorate. She is a great baker and makes a wonderful breakfast. It is a short walk to the water and promenade but a very pleasant one through... More

In July we were staying for a weekend in "il sole antico". We found out about this small and great bed and breakfast in trip advisor. Elena and Stefano, the very friendly and helpful owners renovated this house by themselves. They did it with much love for the detail and also very personal. The rooms are fascinating, we stayed in... More
