We have stayed at this hotel for the past 10 years as part of our summer holiday; we have made many friends with other holiday makers and staff. We often stay for 2 weeks. We have always found the reception staff very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble in the busy reception. Some of the rooms look out over the busy harbour and out to the brilliant blue sea. Some of the rooms look out towards the old town. The breakfast consists of freshly cooked eggs, hams, cheese, fresh fruit, cakes, cereals and bread. It is self service with staff on hand to help and make fresh coffee. We have eaten in the evenings in the reasonably priced restaurant and the food is excellent. All rooms have air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi and are kept clean by very friendly cleaners. The rooms are light and airy with dressing gowns and slippers provided. The town of Castiglione della Pescaia is a busy seaside town which has won awards this year for its clean environment. In the evenings, there are many bars to have a drink. We also eat in the many restaurants which serve a range of Italian food, the Viandante is particularly good. It is worth a stroll up to the old town to watch the Sun set over the island of Elba or walk out to the lighthouse at the end of the harbour. You can watch fishing boats off loading their catch or the local rowing teams racing. The large Saturday market is a great place to find some bargains. During the day we drive a few miles to the wild and sandy beach, Marza, which is totally relaxing.
This excellent hotel is perfectly placed for a really good holiday in wonderful Castiglione. This is a town that is little known to British tourists but is very popular with Italians.
We cannot wait to return to the L'Approdo and CdP next year.
