I would not recommend staying at this place. It is overpriced if you are looking for a backpacking/pension experience, and horribly underserviced and under-amenitied if you are looking for anything else.
It has a spectacular view. Theoretically, the location is amazing (near beaches), but the beaches are not within reasonable or safe walking distance (ie: we tried to walk to the beach and gave up after 35 minutes because it looked like we had at least another 15 to go on non-pedestrian safe roads). Unfortunately, there are also not really any restaurants or evening spots within walking distance, no food or drink offered on location, and no real facilities (at least if you are staying in the Inn part) to prepare your own meal or eat it. There was a lovely little epicerie down the driveway from Littariccia (about a 10 minute walk), but no where to eat your purchases, and one very expensive restaurant attached to another hotel ("l'O") within 10 minutes walking (dinner for 2 + bottle of house wine = approx. 120 Euros). That was it.
The staff of Littariccia was also unavailable and unhelpful (no one there upon our arrival at check-in time), and were curt in most interactions (and we spoke French, it appeared that those who did not had a worse time of it). There are churlish rules signs posted everywhere and printed up in the rooms. The website pictures wildly exaggerate the pool which is very small. The glowing recommendation given in the Lonely Planet guides (which together with the website inspired us to go there) was entirely undeserved.
Another key thing to note - most of the rooms in the Inn part are in the basement. Small slit windows, no real light. Also, no A/C. We were told there was A/C, but in my opinion a small rotating desk fan does not equal A/C. . .
The experience may have been different in the Villas, but I could not otherwise recommend the Littariccia. Certainly to be avoided if you are a traveller that likes walking anywhere - particularly in the evenings.
