“Straight from the heart - Il Cuore”
Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

This small, perfectly run B&B in the heart of the old town of Massa is just the place you want to find in any other town you visit! Lovely spacious rooms, immaculately clean. Breakfast is served in the walled garden, weather permitting. The owner, Daniela and her assistant Beata are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much for them. We will certainly tell all our friends about this hidden little treasure. When the roadworks in the old town are finished, not that this affected the B&B which is on a small side street and very quiet, the town of Massa has quite some lovely attractions and we are sure the B&B will get lots of new admirers.

Stayed July 2012, traveled as a couple

When someone does something with love you can definitely notice the difference. B&B Il Cuore is one of those cases. Everything is done in accordance to the principles that belongs to the making of the highest forms of human activities: perfection, uniqueness and love. The design of the rooms and the quality of the breakfast served are both coherent with the Made in Italy standards, the highest you'll ever find in the world. Daniela, the house owner, together with Beata, her assistant, are both examples of a warm form of hospitality which really has the power to distinguish itself from the cold and sterile hospitality you can find in huge hotel.
So if you are looking for the best quality at a modest price B&B Il Cuore is the way to go.

The b&b was just beautiful, the rooms were nothing less than the pictures in the site and during the summer you can take your breakfast at the back yard which is lovely. The b&b also has a nice common room where you can hang around. Most importantly the woman who owns the b&b was smiley and very polite, gave us heartily advice on where to go and what to see even though se barely spoke english.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Cross the antique threshold and you'll enter a small world of emotions. The passion for life, beautiful things and hospitality can be felt, it lingers in every corner of the enchanting B&B where antique and modern blend with harmony, creating an ambiance rich with charm. Throughout the alleys, taverns and ancient shops of Massa's historic centre, IL CUORE Bed and Breakfast is a leap in the past, a place where you will feel welcomed and cuddled and where you will rediscover the pleasure of the conviviality of past times. Nothing is casual, everything is specifically wanted and created by Daniela and Roberto who lovingly selected the decors, furnishings and the many small things that make IL CUORE unique. Let the rocking horses, the old bird cages, the hearts and candles, the Murano glass chandeliers, the sweet and melodic music and the scent of orange blossoms that float in every ambient surprise and enchant you. Every corner is a surprise! The natural and warm tones of the fabrics, the refined elegance of the living room, the intimate atmosphere of the breakfast room, the fragrance of the apple cake that Beata prepares every morning, the light in the garden that enhances the white scented blossoms will make your stay unforgettable, a real revitalization of the body and mind. In the massage room you can enjoy the pleasure of a Shatsu, Reiki or Craniosacral massage among candles and relaxing music. B&B provides bicycles, free of charge, which our guests can use to discover the sweet hills, and reach the seaside, a free and carefree way to visit the nearby areas. If you happen to have a pet with you, IL CUORE and Trilli, our small Maltese terrier, who is the real queen of the house, will welcome you with pleasure. Il Cuore B&B, character and personality in Massa's historical heart. ... more   less
