My husband chose il Giardinetto as our B & B and I wasn't sure I would like it, but it was everything we could ask for and more. The apt is conveniently located--a short walk to the harbor and all the restaurants and shops. The apt itself is roomy, light, and very comfortable. The ceilings are high and our windows opened to the garden, which was ideal. There was even a clothesline out the window for washing. The garden is delightful, with loquat and lemon trees. The area is also remarkably quiet at night, for light sleepers. A grocery store is like a 2 minute walk from the B & B. The lady (mother of the owner) who took care of us is delightful and generous. She does not speak English but her French is excellent.
There are real beach towels--a nice perk--we had brought our own, expecting the usual skimpy European towels. There are also free bikes you can use.
Just two points to remember--it's important to let them know exactly when you're coming--otherwise you may end up at the door not being able to get in and not knowing what to do. Ring the bell for Family Nieddu if that happens. Also, be aware you have to pay CASH even though you reserve with a credit card. That was rather an unpleasant surprise--fortunately you can use paypal--otherwise we'd have been up the creek and washing dishes in some restaurant for the rest of the month :)
In short, highly recommended!
