We had a really great time staying here, the views are absolutely stunning. It was so dreamy to wake up there every morning and have have breakfast looking out over the bay. Perfect too for watching a stunning sunset and the stars at night will take your breath away (just make sure you have some bug spray!).
The cottage was very comfortable, the mattress was good and so slept well all week. It did lack a few things in the kitchen such as spoons (only had teaspoons, forks and knives for some reason). We purchased a tea towel and a sponge for cleaning up as they were absent too but they were just little things that were easy to purchase for our stay.
Check in was easy and friendly. I would recommend a small‘ish size car if visiting as navagating your way up and down from the property is not for the faint of heart. We would have really appreciated some sort of welcome/information folder that you usually receive with holiday lets as we had no idea what to do with the bins or where to find things mentioned such as the walks in the area and steps down to the bay, so perhaps this could be considered for future guests.
It’s a great place overall and I would highly recommend staying here if visiting the area!
Tony and Ombretta’s apartment was the perfect place to stay and enjoy the best of this beautiful island.
Everything in the apartment was spotless and well maintained, and the place has a great layout as well, with a huge lounge and very large bedrooms. All the rooms are beautifully decorated and the kitchen is fully stocked with all the equipment you might need to make family dinners. There were only 4 of us staying there so we were very comfortable, and it's apparently possible to transform the landing on the second floor to an extra bedroom as well.
The apartment itself is situated inside Giglio Castello, the beautiful old own at the top of the island. It’s a great place to stay if you prefer cooler evenings and nights after a day on the beach, as the areas near the sea stay pretty warm even when the sun has gone down. The Castello has a maze of picturesque streets, local food and clothes stores, and plenty of delicious restaurants. We loved going to Da Maria's for seafood, and Il Trione di Meino for lovely appetizers and great pizza.
It’s easy to park if you have a car (both paid and unpaid can be found around), but the bus is a great option to get to the different small towns and beaches (Porto, Cannelle, Campese, etc).
Tony and Ombretta are the most amazing hosts, really kind and caring, and if you need anything they’re always happy to help. We’d most definitely recommend staying here and we know we’ll be back soon!
