“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 27 July 2010

What a wonderful time we've had! We've spent five nights in this beautiful B&B and it was great. We would really like to recommend this place.

I can only leave positive feedback: The rooms are very stylish, clean and spacious. The entire house is very well decorated, inspired by Italian, French and Thai influences. Breakfast is delightful, especially the home made cakes and fresh fruit!. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and they are the best Thai cooks! There is a lovely garden with comfortable chairs, where you can sit down and just relax. The owner (Florence) knows nearly everything about the island and especially the beaches (Sansone); she gave us the perfect tips. It's also possible to get a nice Thai massage near the house. And there is Pizza 2001; strange name for such a good local Italian restaurant (about 5 min walk, accompanied by the lovely dog Bush!). If you're not yet convinced, please view the photos: they speak for themselves.

Thank you again Florence, for the unforgettable experience! Your B&B is like a dream...

We spent a week in Le stanze del Casale with our children 5 and 7 years old. The whole family found this place as dream. We love the bed outside in the garden. We appreciate the oportunity to borrow a netbook and the wifi connection. The house is very stylish, there are many of designer pieces. The breakfest was so romantic, with jazz music and very tasty food, full of cakes and fruits. The owner Florance is very helpfull, if you need something and gives you a very good advices about Elba.

Having just arrived on Elba from the hustle and bustle of Rome, my husband and I were ready to relax and just "kick back." This B & B is perfect for a really pleasant experience, with somewhat rustic yet very comfortable accommodation, bountiful breakfasts served late enough that sleeping-in is an option, and the gracious hospitality of owner Florence and her Thai staff.
During our stay, the other guests were French and German, and we were told that few Americans have patronized their B & B. Elba is off-the-radar for most of us, and as part of Tuscany, it is an Italian experience, but less commercialized. If you enjoy truly local ambiance, follow "Bush," the Wonder Dog, who will escort you to Florence's trattoria-of-choice, crossing the highway and delivering you for your dinner--and then returning home. The food, language, and patrons are all Italian--enjoy!

The B&B is fantastic! Me and my girlfriend have spent one week last year and two other couple of days in April.It is an ancient farmhouse well renovated, breakfast are delighful and copious (home made cakes are delicious), rooms are very clean and spacious but what really makes the difference is the the atmosphere created by its owner Florence and the thai girls helping her: it is is magic, they are always smiling and ready to advise you about the beaches and the local restaurant!
If you go to Elba Island you'll realize how unique is this B&B and its location.

We stayed at Le Stanze del Casale for a few days exactly one year ago and loved everything about the place. Both the indoors and outdoors were fantastic and the service immaculate in every respect. This place is just the ultimate benchmark for every B&B, pure pleasure to all your senses. We absolutely have to visit the lovely island of Elba again and hope to be able stay at Le Stanze del Casale also in the future.

As stop #3 on our honeymoon tour in Italy, this B&B was the wildcard. I had meticulously researched every stop on our honeymoon apart from this one, as my husband wanted to visit Elba and at the time it only had about 3 reviews. I'm not sure what made me pick it but I think it was the Thai influence - we love Thai food so we thought anyone Thai affliated must be a good person!

As we drove up the road to the B&B (a little tricky to find as it doesn't correspond exactly to the satnav), I did ask my husband if he wanted to go somewhere else. It looked a little... wild. Then Florence came out to meet us and she was so friendly - inviting us in, settling us into our beautiful room and sitting us down outside with a glass of wine. She is really not your typical B&B owner - she has a shock of bleached blonde hair and definitely doesn't look homely or boring - but she's one of the warmest, most welcoming people ever.

The room was fantastic - spacious, clean as anything, with new white sheets (Florence is particular about that sort of thing) and a sparkling modern bathroom. The whole place has been done up with such care, in a kind of 'shabby chic/oriental' style that looks very cool. It is quirky, the living room full of weird and wonderful collections from Florence's travels. There's a fab outside sitting area with daybed, hammock, etc. The quirkiness extends to the garden where there's a large boat, various arty sculptures, etc. Not like anything you've ever seen!

Unfortunately the night we arrived, the island was hit by a massive storm, which meant that we missed out a bit on sightseeing during our stay. The whole island had to go into cleanup mode, and the B&B's garden needed tidying up. So it meant that we didn't really get to take advantage of what Elba had to offer - we were just waiting around for a lot of the time. (The location is nice and quiet, but you have to drive if you want to get anywhere other than a quick walk. There's a big parking lot though so parking isn't a problem.)

Nevertheless, we had a great stay. Florence and her staff are genuinely warm people, and we really enjoyed talking to them about their travels. The breakfasts are on a different level altogether. Seriously - you have to go just to try them. There is a massive buffet with lots of delicious dishes. If you didn't have to go out, you'd just stay in eating all day! We were disappointed as they would have cooked us a thai curry but with the storm, all the plans got messed up as they couldn't get to the shops. But you got the feeling that they'd have done anything humanly possible to do it for us.

There's the dog, Bush, who is hilarious - he comes and goes as he pleases, and entertains his lady friends (they turn up throughout the day to come and see him, and his girlfriend has dinner with him). And it's just fun looking at all the stuff in the place - it's like being welcomed into someone's beautiful, very quirky home. You get the feeling that Florence does this because she genuinely likes meeting new people and entertaining them. It's a very special place and I'd say if you're ever there, you should visit.

My wife and I have stayed at many B&B's and Le Stanze del Casale ranks among the best. The most outstanding feature is how welcome and comfortable we were made to feel for the 3 nights we stayed. French, English, Italian and Thai are all spoken (possibly other languages as well). The breakfasts were delicious (fresh warm croissants plus plus) and the room was charming. The large, private balcony was perfect to soak up the sun one afternoon. Florence even provided use of a laptop for free access to the internet.
Le Stanze del Casale is THE place to stay when visiting Elba!
