Loc. Spalmatore Str. Provinciale N. 102 Carloforte - La Caletta Km. 7,6, Snc
A charming B&B, La Tartaruga is located on the Island of San Pietro, very close to the famous beach, La Caletta, a u shaped beach which embraces the sun every evening as it sets into the sea, just few minutes by car or bus from the port of Carloforte, the only town on the island. Built with local stones at the end of the 1800’s, as a place to stay during the grape harvest. La Tartaruga has been completely renovated preserving the typical and simple architecture of this island's abodes, the so-called "Baracca".
La Tartaruga is a perfect destination for travelers who love nature, be it the countryside or the sea, and for those who love photography. This is the place to go and spend a holiday discovering a splendid coastline, with rocky cliffs overlooking the sea, sandy bays and coves where you can go diving and take boat trips, or explore the land taking long walks and bike rides, immersed in the green of the Mediterranean plant life.
For those more inclined to Slow Living, this is a place where you can let yourself go drifting away from your daily rhythms, either looking for a cool shelter from the hot sun with a good book on the comfortable sofas on the veranda, on a bench under the pines and the tea trees, in a hammock, or lying on the futon and enjoying a relaxing shiatsu treatment.
This is not the traditional B&B: with your own remote control a large internal car park, shaded by a reed fence and overhead latticework, welcomes you back at any time of the day or night. The fridge and the outdoor kitchen are available, on request, as well as umbrellas for the beach and equipment for the sea, internet, magazines, books, camping cots, high chairs for children and laundry service. There are also several customer service agreements with nearby restaurants and businesses available to our guests.
Our rooms, equipped with every comfort, have their own private bathroom; each with its own personality and color. The use of natural materials enhances the calm and healthy atmosphere. Two large verandas equipped for reading or relaxing also provide the space for a largely organic breakfast which can be provided upon request.
The garden is filled with plants: quince, fig, pomegranate, lemon, orange, apricot trees, grapevines, blackberry bushes, myrtle, all of which offer their fruit for a genuine home made jam and the preparation of limoncello, citrus and myrtle liqueur.
La Tartaruga is the starting point for a full-immersion in total well-being.
