“If only we could have stayed the whole summer...”
Reviewed 6 October 2009

We came to Elba because we had three days to spare, before moving to our holiday house near Lucca. And what three days we spent there! We discovered a magnificent island, with so many various places to go - from beach to mountain to historical site to relaxed chillout bar.

We stayed at probably the best accommodation ever, at Stanze del Casale and fabulous Florence (mind the French pronounciation of the name!)

The house is a bit away from the road, so there is little noisy coming through the olive trees, but close enough to be in the city within less than 10 minutes driving. It is a combination of Tuscany and Provence and any other Mediterranean place, with a touch of Thai.

We received a room coming out of the '50's romantic European movies, with a huge terrace and a large bed. The bath is modern, though, and be sure you will receive all touches of modernity you will need in your holiday.

The atmosphere is very relaxed, from the huge open-buffet breakfasts in the inside garden, to the large livingroom full of art and books, to the extraordinary music - all adapted to the times of the day. The garden is also magnificent, with a lot of sofas and armchairs, all luring the tourist to go to sleep insted of wandering around.

And the house dog, Bush, is one of the most relaxed dogs I have ever met. Not very tourist friendly, he takes a bath in the sea by himself every morning and welcomes his neighboring she-dog later in the day. Otherwise, he can be found doing his siesta on the livingroom sofa or in the garden. Do not attempt to disturb him, you will be utterly ignored and slightly despised.

Last but definitely not least, the Thai staff add a touch of Asian grace and discretion.

Thank you to Lady Florence for her welcoming us - it has been a privilege to be there, even for so short. We will be back for sure - and we will bring more of us!

A definite must try for anyone visiting Elba to reach peace and serenity.

Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous! We stayed 8 days. Wish we could have stayed longer. We've been back 3 weeks and still miss Le Stanze del Casale and talk about the wonderful time we had. The chilled out atmosphere. The laidback quirky style. Florence and the team's incredible welcoming hospitality. Busch the dog going crazy chasing wild pigs in the forest! The beautiful breakfast - different every morning - served with fresh coffee and the papers. Our bedroom (and terrace) with crisp white linen, fresh towels. The fridge to help ourselves to a cold beer or a glass of wine! We cannot recommend Le Stanze del Casale highly enough. Thank you Florence from Jessica and Michael (PS Elba is wonderful too - we managed to visit 12 of the 150 beaches during our stay. Fantastic local restaurant within 5 mins walk.)

We, experienced travelers and always picky with our hotel choice, just came back from our fantastic summer holiday in Tuscany and one of the highlights is our stay at le stanze del casale on Elba.
The house is an old farmhouse, beautifully restored and tastefully decorated with antiques and art from all over the world. All rooms and bathrooms are very nice, the breakfast is exceptionally good with fresh fruit salad and home made pie. Peaceful atmosphere, scenic location, but most importantly it is the outstanding service and hospitality of Florence and her team from Thailand that set the bed and breakfast apart from any other great places that we have been to. We will come back and strongly recommend le stanze del casale.

Le Stanze del Casale was like an oasis for me. Florence, the propietor, was so kind, polite and friendly. She made me feel at home. I was lucky to stay at a room that had just been refurbished with amazing furniture and a very elegant bathroom. The whole atmosphere was magic and Florence and her staff made sure that every detail was properly taken care of. I felt very confortable. I don't doubt to recommend this place to my compatriots from Guatemala. The breakfast was world class. Thank you Florence for your great hospitality!

I fell in love with Elba from the first moment i set foot on the Island, but my stay at Le Stanze del Casale made the whole experience in one word perfect. The B&B is not far from the harbour and we were welcomed by the owner, Florence, and her dog Bouche. We had our own little Yorkshire Terrier with us, who liked Bouche immediately. Bouche is a very friendly gentle big dog who obviously feels that he needs to take good care of everybody and everything, the guests, the house, the other dogs, which is really great.

It shows right away that the the house interior of the B&B are put together with a lot of love, which makes guests feel welcome and at home right away. The rooms are spotless, really very clean and are kept that way by the lovely Ni and Lak, two women frojm Thailand, who also prepare the most amazing breakfasts for the guests. Hoem baked pies, pancakes, cakes, freshly cut fruits, warmn crooissants, 3 sorts of bread, cheeses, ham, sausagse, fried, scrambled, boiled eggs (perfectly prepared), coffee, thee, marmelade, it's all there, all fresh, every single morning. The patio where breakfast is served is a romatic space with lots of plants, flowers and birds. And I shouldn't forget to mention that if you bring your dog, like we did and which I can totally recommend, the dog will be invited to join Bouche for a home cooked meal every evening consisting of freshly cooked meat, pasta/rice/special dog muesli and a drop of olive oil to keep skin and fur bright and shiny.

I can keep on writing good things about this wonderful place, where all living creatures are welcome, but I think you should experience it all yourself.

I gave Le Stanze the ratings I believe they deserve, 100% on all aspects!
