Boccadalma Bed and Breakfast

Traveller (50)
Room & Suite (3)
Pool & Beach (2)


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, sight seeing, good restaurants and many more. The

Tim, Thank you so much for your great review. It was so much fun having you here as our guests. Your enthusiasm for the area was contagious and I liked the idea of being able to present to you my favorite itineraries and places to eat. Not many people stay as long as you did and see so much of the surrounding area. Congratulations for having made the very best of your vacation. Hope very much to have you return another time. There is still lots to see and do. Auf wiedersehen, Ellen and Luciano

Highly recommend this B&B!! My boyfriend and I just stayed there. Room was perfect and comfortable, and breakfast was great. Ellen is so kind and helpful. She let us borrow bikes, told us what to see and where to eat. The beaches are beautiful and super close to the b&b. We

We stayed in the Elba room for 2 nights at the end of May. The room was spacious , clean and very comfortable. Breakfasts of fresh fruit and pastry, cereal and yoghurt were tasty. The breakfast room is in the former barn which has been charmingly renovated. The cleverly

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 so many interesting people is definitely the best part of it. Hope to see you and your family again if you ever make it back. Wishing you the best for your big upcoming event.

Stayed 2 nights at this B&B in the Elba room and could not fault it what so ever. Breakfast was lovely with a great selection of local food to start the day. Location was great for touring around the local area and the added bonus of being able to park close to the beach with a

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

Early morning view from the terrace
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.

spiaggia attrezzata vicino?
Hello to whoever asked about a "spiaggia attrezzata vicino?" Siamo 1.5 km dal mare. Forniamo un 'pass' per parcheggiare al Puntala Camping/Resort. Li ci sono ombrellone e sdraie da noleggiare. Cala Civette é anche molto vicino, ma non attrezzata. Il famoso 'Cala Violino' é soltanto 45 minuti da noi a piedi. Saluti da Ellen Sutherland al B&B Boccadalma

"I had the mountain view room in the back. Loved it!!!"
"All 4 are good; 1 is designed for the wheelchair-bound. Mine faced the morning sun."
"All rooms are equally well proportioned, quiet and with lovely views."
