Villa San Rocco is responsible for making our time in Italy an absolutely memorable one. The owners, Eric and Renata, are amazing and took such good care of us even though we (due to various map/road sign reading issues) arrived really late in the evening. The villa itself is beautiful, with rooms that make you feel like you're staying in your favorite relative's home, and pretty much all the amenities that you'd need (Hair dryer, check. Ironing board, check. Awesome breakfast, check., etc). Renata and I talked about their choice of olive oil based toiletries--I was so excited I had to ask her where she got them, so I could purchase some on the way out of Piombino.

Renata is a champion chef and makes the most delicious breakfast dishes (changing up the menu each day that we were there!)--if she makes pizza, make sure to grab more than one slice. And I believe Eric made the ridiculously good fruit jams.

One caveat--there is a large fan and no A/C in the room. BUT: I couldn't care less, even if it's super hot outside. They have big fans and you end up just enjoying the feeling of being on vacation in Tuscany, and you're so relaxed you won't care about having an A/C.

The views from the villa are amazing. You can see surrounding islands as well as Elba. Piombino is now one of my favorite towns; it's a gem of a town, where on weekend nights you'd run into a lot of young people and families just going out for a walk and enjoying delicious gelato desserts. And also: best pizza I've ever had in my life. Unfortunately I forgot which restaurant served it :( but hey, if you're there for more than one day, there's a good chance you'll find it!

Bonus tip: there is an incredibly sweet outdoor dog named Gina who lives on the villa property. She's arthritic, so if you want to pet her, I hope you'll just walk over to her (because she'll walk over to you if you call her, but it's obvious it puts her in a lot of pain!). I would've stayed an extra day just to hang out with her.

I will go back to Italy because of my time in Piombino, and will absolutely stay at Villa San Rocco again (I'd even adjust the trip dates to make sure that I can get a room there). Eric and Renata are wonderful hosts and owners of the villa, and they make Villa San Rocco the absolute gem of a bed and breakfast that it is.

Room Tip: Just email Eric and Renata prior to booking your room if you have x number of people; that way you c...

We were looking for somewhere south of Cinque Terra to spend 2 nigths and read on Trip Advisor that Piombino was a 'hidden gem'. Driving into the town we were very skeptical as all we could see was large industries. Fortunately though the other side of town is absolutely beautiful was the most breathtaking views of the Mediterranean and Elba Island. Villa San Rocco is located just out of the main town area so it feels like you're away from it all but are only 5 minutes from the beaches or historic and very delightful town centre and restaurants. Eric and Renata couldn't have been better hosts and provided us with lots of information on local attractions, restaurants and even the best places to park in town. The rooms are warm and homely and very clean and the food for breakfast is delicious. If you want to get away from the tourist trail this is a wonderful area to visit and Villa San Rocco is the very best place to stay.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have views out to the sea.

Wir haben 3 Nächte auf unserer Toskana-Rundreise bei Renata und Eric in der Villa San Rocco verbracht.
Wunderschöne Lage mit Blick auf Elba, selbst gemachte Kuchen und Marmeladen zum Frühstück, nur kurze Autofahrt ins Zentrum von Piombino, saubere und gemütliche Zimmer. Perfekte individuelle Betreuung, ausgezeichnete Restaurant- und Ausflugsempfehlungen. Definitiv weiterzuempfehlen!

We spent three nights of our Toscana-tour with Renata and Eric in Villa San Rocco. Wonderful position with a great view of Elba, home-made pastry and jam for breakfast, only a short drive to Piombino, clean and comfortable rooms; we appreciated the hosptiality and the great recommendations of on restaurants and trips!
We can definitely recommend the Villa San Rocco to everyone!

PS: Dear Renata and Eric, thank you for your olive-oil-advice! We found the place at once (due to Eric's map...) and it is just delicious!

First of all, BIG THANKS to the hosts Renata & Eric who made our 1-week stay at their villa comfortable and simply great !
The Villa is beautiful, with cosy rooms, common area and pretty terrace where the breakfast is served. But the best about it is a breathtaking view of Elba and smaller islands! The town of Piombino is an absolutely non-touristic place, with beautiful beaches and interesting surroundings that were really worth to see. Especially since we were provided with all the possible information by Renata and Eric. Their recommendations on local restaurants were really valuable as well!
P.s.: Renata's delicious pastries for breakfast deserve a separate mention)

Prima di tutto, GRAZIE MILLE ai padroni Renata e Eric che hanno reso il nostro soggiorno di 1 settimana a loro villa confortevole e semplicemente fantastico!
La villa è bellissima, con camere accoglienti, area comune e bella terrazza dove viene servita la prima colazione. Ma la cosa migliore a questo proposito è una vista mozzafiato dell' Elba e delle isole minori! La città di Piombino è un posto assolutamente non turistico, con spiagge bellissime e dintorni interessanti che bisogna vedere senz'altro. Tanto più che Renata e Eric ci hanno fornito di tutte le informazioni possibili. Come pure le loro raccomandazioni sui ristoranti locali erano davvero preziosi!
Ps: Deliziosi dolci per la colazione fatte da Renata meritano un discorso a parte)
