We are a newly renovated 4-bedroom B&B located in an old farm house on a hilltop just 1.5 km from the lovely, sandy beaches of the Gulf of Punta Ala. You can see the Island of Elba from the house, and there is always a nice breeze to keep you cool in the summer. Breakfast is eaten in the hall with a vaulted ceiling. All facilities (tennis, sailing, bike rentals,restaurants and supermarket)as well as free parking for the beach, are available to our guests at the nearby PuntAla Camping Resort. We are on the edge of the Natural Park called 'Bandite di Scarlino' with thousands of hectars of woods, biking and hiking trails. It is just a 45 minute shady walk to the famous "Cala Violina". Ellen and Luciano would be happy to welcome you, and both speak fluent English, Italian, German and French.
One of the best places I‘ve ever been to. Very nice beach not far away from the B&B (3 min with car but also easy to walk about 20-30 min) and many possibilties around to spend a good time like MTB trails, a horse ranch,...More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Always enjoy chatting with the English speakers who are slowly discovering this part of Tuscany on the coast. The transformation from barn to B&B has been an ongoing project that I hope I never tire of. Meeting...More

I'd like to come back soon! Ellen is a wonderful host. The excellent located B&B near a beautiful coastline invites to come back. Well-designed rooms with mosquito-protection, which was quite important, because we forget our anti-mosquito spray. Ellen was really helpful, she gave us for...More

I answered the question directly to the client, explaining that we live on a hilltop just a mile from the sea. The house has good ventilation and very thick stone walls since it was built over 200 years ago. I have fans in all bedrooms, but see that they are rarely used. In all my years of the B&B only once did a guest leave because there was no AC. They had not even asked the question before and were disappointed. Of course, we could always have a heat wave, and then it's warm everywhere, but we usually have a land breeze in the morning and a sea breeze in the afternoon.
