“Petite Maison” is located only 300mt (5-10 minutes walk) from the city centre of La Madalena.

This beautiful house was built in 1965 and has a nice little garden away from the typical Italian city hectic.

The owners have fully refurbished their home into a place where guests can enjoy the harmony and artistic taste they have put into the house.

The house has three double bedrooms (15 to 18 mq) with their own bathrooms. Although all rooms are in the same authentic style, each room has a “personal” touch.

A lounge is available and breakfast is served inside the house, in the garden underneath the old lemon tree or on the veranda as requested.

The typical Mediterranean breakfast is served from 9.00 to 10.00.

Miriam, ex ballerina, is of Dutch origin. And' she with his/her creativity, has taken care of in the details the furnishing, and it is always ready and kind to satisfy the applications of his/her guests.

We spent a wonderful week at Petite Maison. The house is beautiful, as well as the exterior. Miriam serves her famous themed breakfasts in this space. The room was comfortable and clean thanks also to Rita's fantastic work. The location is perfect for reaching the center on foot. The very friendly owners, Lino and Miriam, will know how to advise you on what is really worth seeing in La Maddalena. If we happen to be in the archipelago again, we will definitely come back.

A very nice encounter with Myriam, very attentive and particularly friendly, in a lovely place to relax and enjoy the magnificent garden in complete tranquility. Refined breakfasts different every morning. And the attentions that Myriam pays to her guests are rare enough to be highlighted. A very beautiful place for travelers seeking serenity. Thank you Myriam.

A little corner of paradise with its courtyard and its flowery garden where you can have a breakfast prepared with great care. Spacious room and large bathroom. There is also a fridge. Miriam and Lino are very friendly and attentive to their guests... 3 minutes walk from restaurants and the port. Easy and free parking available.

Very central location, highly looked after and clean bed and breakfast. With a gorgeous garden and very friendly, open-minded people. Relaxing environment, perfect for a couple. Breakfast not abundant but beautifully presented. Multilingual management. Would highly recommend for a peaceful romantic escape from metropolitan stress.

5 days at the Petite Maison with family and a 10-year-old child. B&B just amazing. Lino and Myriam warmly welcome you. Comfortable and very clean room. A flowery and cozy garden. Breakfast with a different theme every morning. Special mention to Lino for the sailing excursion, a fantastic day, and to Myriam for the exquisite taste in decoration and making us feel at home. Not to mention Pilou, the parrot mascot, who will chat with you. We will come back. Thank you for this stay. Raphael and Severine.

In every sense this is so much more than a B and B and words may fail to describe the beauty of the interior and the charm of the hosts Miriam and Lino. If you want to relax, have a unique breakfast experience and enjoy great hospitality look no further. In our humble experience this is the best little bed and breakfast in the world and our five night stay was a joy from start to finish and a great introduction to the beautiful islands of the La Maddalena archipelago.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à la petite maison, nous avons apprécié le charme de la maison, de son petit jardin, de notre chambre et l'accueil du propriétaire, nous avons également choisi cette structure pour sa proximité du centre ville et sa localisation dans un quartier calme Nous avions également projeté de faire la ballade en bateau proposée par Dino, malheureusement la météo n'était pas favorable (trop de vent). A part cela toute nos attentes ont été comblées et nous recommandons cet endroit merci encore à Dino pour son acceuil. Sylvie et Serge.

Un endroit magique plein de surprise, du décor, au petit déjeuner tout en couleur et délicieux. Un accueil très sympathique. Il manque juste un peu de place pour garer la voiture car ensuite tout est à portée (200 m du centre). Une chambre et une seule n'a pas la salle de bain dans la chambre, même si c'est une salle de bain privative elle est sur le palier et cela n'est pas précisé sur le site c'est dommage. Il faut donc penser à le demander..

Questa recensione da parte della signora Puzzo è falsa in quanto non ha soggiornato presso la nostra struttura del B&B La Petit Maison. Pertanto invito e sollecito la puzzo a segnalare e correggere questa recensione come non vera per evitare qualsiasi malinteso da parte di altri ospiti che vorranno soggiornare presso di noi. Mi auguro che tutto ciò' vada a buon fine per evitare spiacevoli conseguenze. Il gestore.

I choose Petite Maison very last minute only 1 week from stay. The photos and description lit my curiosity and I was blessed that they had space at such short notice. I could not have made a better choice. Miriam and Lino are magnets of hospitality, you just want to spend time with them and ask a million questions about their exquisite self created home transformed into B&B. It is impossible to describe in a few words and degrading to call it a simple B&B. It is a beautiful home created with much love and passion open to strangers. Every angle of the house has something artfully created by Lino or Miriam, every detail is a joy to look at. We had the superior room but with only 2 nights it was difficult to fully enjoy our choice and I can only suggest you book and see for yourselves. Room was cool and quite despite the external heat, great shower, bed and linen. The house is a 400mt walk from the central hub and port. Parking is external and we did not have problems finding a spot in front. The breakfast served from 08: 30-09: 00 is a must do highlight, having read the reviews we could not wait to see. This is not a breakfast it is a beautiful work of art incorporating healthy colour themed foods, fruit, yogurt, juices, fresh Cornetti and bread. Your wake up drink is your choice, requested in advance and ready at the table. Day 1 was Purple, Day 2 Orange, a photo is a must. Miriam's flamboyant company and light hearted chatter together with Pilou the entertaining, demanding Amazon parrot and Kila the shy rescue toy York Terrier made the start of the day perfect. So be prepared to start your day activities no earlier than 09: 45 otherwise you will not be able to enjoy this enchanting offering. A piece of my heart was stolen on my last visit to La Maddelena archipelago 25 years ago with a 2 week stay on Caprera. Our way too short 2 nt stay at Petite Maison has just taken another piece. It is my goal to return for a longer stay hoping that we can find space again with Miriam and Lino. Thank you you made our stay Paradise all the way through.

Il nostro soggiorno di due settimane nel B&B Petite Maison è stato magnifico! Una struttura curata fin nei dettagli dai proprietari Lino e Miriam. Le colazioni preparate da Miriam, colorate e fantasiose, sono oltremodo squisite. Le camere sono accoglienti e spaziose ed arricchite dai quadri di Lino e dai lavori in ceramica di Miriam. Per rilassarsi un incantevole giardino ricco di fiori, dove il pappagallo Pilù la fa da padrone! La gita in barca a vela è stata il clou del soggiorno.

Petite Maison is a wonderful house, full of colour, striking artworks (painted by Lino) adorn the walls, and antique furniture is tastily placed around the house and guest bedrooms. Breakfast was always good with different themes each morning, and always cheerful morning greetings from Miriam and her flowers and decorations on the table and in the bedroom. The owners also have a lovely little 'Yorkie' dog and also a Parrot, who hangs around the pretty little courtyard garden area which is full of lovely colours, including Bougainvillea, Hibiscus and Lantana Camara. Location was good, with only a 6 minute walk down to the front esplanade and pretty old Maddelina town. Missing being there and hope one day to return! Paul & Caryn.

Siamo stati accolti nella struttura da Miriam, la quale ci ha messo subito a nostro agio e ci ha fatti sentire a casa. Ci ha raccontato del B&B aneddoti simpatici, e abbiamo visto le stupende opere di Lino. Abbiamo conosciuto Kila la cagnolina e Pilu il pappagallo che parla inglese, ma sta imparando anche l'italiano, è fortissimo! Che dire?..è stata una settimana meravigliosa, il risveglio in camera con i quadri dai colori splendidi dipinti da Lino, per poi entrare nel bagno sempre ideato da Lino dai colori caldi e unici. Per poi scendere a colazione e rimanere sorpresi ogni mattina dalle colazioni, queste preparate dalla carinissima Miriam, le quali ogni mattina avevano un argomento diverso, ma anche queste con dei colori fantastici, adornate dai fiori del loro magnifico giardino, la fantasia di Miriam non ha limiti, oltre che ad essere ottime e abbondanti. Consigliamo a tutti una vacanza in questo B&B perché così belli e arredati con personalità e gusto è molto difficile trovarne. Noi siamo stati fortunati, anche perché già ci eravamo innamorati delle foto viste nel loro sito, ma ne abbiamo avuto la conferma vivendo la vacanza da loro. Tiziana Pozzi e Giuseppe Devoti.

Il B&B si trova in posizione centrale, a pochi minuti dal centro. Noi abbiamo soggiornato nella stanza "Superior": spaziosa, pulita e molto curata nell'arredamento. Eccezionale la colazione preparata da Miriam: dalla presentazione della tavola curata fin nei minimi dettagli ed ogni giorno con un tema diverso, alla varietà e bontà dei cibi serviti. Disponibili, cortesi, simpatici e molto accoglienti i proprietari Miriam, Lino e Pillow (il loro simpatico pappagallo!) sempre prodighi di ottimi consigli. Grazie di cuore per il bellissimo soggiorno, speriamo di tornare presto a trovarvi. Flaminia e Giorgio.
