Spacious room and bathroom, with the possibility to hang out in a small attached terrace. Daily cleaning. Varied and plentiful breakfast. Katie is a fantastic host, welcoming, discreet, and always available to provide help or suggestions, attentive to guests' needs. If we return to Palau next year, we will know who to contact.

I can only say beautiful things about the bed and breakfast La Fonda and Catherine, who manages it. It was a wonderful holiday, the bed and breakfast is in a strategic position, a stone's throw from the center, in an area where parking is not difficult. Beautiful beaches can be reached in a few minutes by car. The bed and breakfast is a gem, comfortable and well-equipped, and Catherine is a special person. I really believe that this is now our favorite place for our holidays in Gallura.

Struttura molto accogliente e arredata con gusto. Camera spaziosa con tutto il necessario. Letto di buona qualità. Colazione con tutto il necessario sia salato che dolce. A solo 5 minuti a piedi dal centro. Dunque la sera non ce bisogno di prendere la macchina per i ristoranti o altro. Katie molto simpatica e sempre pronta per darvi consigli per i ristoranti o le spiagge. Abbiamo passato una bella settimana. Posso solo consigliarlo.

Abbiamo trascorso presso il B&B La Fonda le nostre vacanze estive e siamo stati ospiti di Katie per una settimana. La struttura si trova al centro di Palau ed in 5 minuti a piedi si arriva al porto dove partono i traghetti per la Maddalena. Al tempo stesso la strada è tranquilla e la sera si dorme piacevolmente. Il B&B è tenuto benissimo, curato nei minimi dettagli e si vede in ogni piccolo particolare l'attenzione con cui Katie lo gestisce. La nostra stanza, situata al piano terra era ampia, pulita e molto luminosa, dotata di armadio, comò, letto matrimoniale con comodini, scrittoio e poltroncina. Il bagno anch'esso spazioso dotato di doccia e bidet. La pulizia giornaliera effettuata dalla signora Paola, gentilissima e discreta, il cambio asciugamani fatto ogni 3 giorni o su richiesta. La colazione viene servita dalle 8 alle 10 ed è veramente eccezionale, fornita di tutto dal dolce al salato alla frutta yogurt latte caffè e te. Sul tetto e disponibile uno stendino per poter asciugare teli da mare e costumi da bagno, al secondo piano un frigo a disposizione degli ospiti per poter raffreddare qualche bevanda. Tutto eccellente insomma ma la caratteristica unica di questo B&B è sicuramente la signora Katie, una persona gentile e disponibile che sa farti sentire come a casa. Grazie mille Katie per la bellissima accoglienza! Consigliatissimo!

It’s easy to be cynical about reviews but La Fonda more than lives up to the praise that’s been posted. From the beautiful wisteria covered courtyard, to the fantastically comfortable beds, and bountiful breakfasts. With air conditioning for hot weather periods and impeccably clean environment, our accommodation was faultless. We recommend the room with the balcony looking towards the sea. Katie is a fantastic and charming host who will make you feel extremely welcome and can offer great tips and recommendations to help you get the best out of your visit. La Fonda itself is ideally placed, close enough for beaches and restaurants whilst also being in a quiet part of the town. Nearby on street parking readily available and within walking distance of the ferries to the Maddalena Islands.

B&B La Fonda. Ubicato tra il centro storico di Palau e la spiaggia della Sciumara, silenzioso la notte, pulito, curato, piccolo e familiare, adatto a chi cerca relax e riservatezza. Colazione fatta da Katie diversa ogni mattina. Katie è simpatica e disponibile. Prodiga di informazioni. È lei che fa tutto con la cura di chi ci tiene alla struttura e ai clienti. Personalmente mi sono trovata molto bene e quando tornerò a Palau certamente cercherò di ritornare da Katie.
